Australian Mines finds buyer for Sconi nickel/cobalt

16th August 2021

By: Esmarie Iannucci
Creamer Media Senior Deputy Editor: Australasia

PERTH ( – ASX-listed Australian Mines has inked a binding long-term offtake agreement with battery producer LG Energy Solutions for mixed nickel/cobalt hydroxide product from the Sconi project, in Queensland.

LG Energy Solutions will purchase 71 000 t of nickel and 7 000 t of cobalt in the form of a mixed hydroxide precipitate over an initial six-year term, with the potential to extend the offtake agreement for another five years, by mutual agreement.

Australian Mines told shareholders on Monday that the offtake agreement was a major milestone for the company, and that the quantities covered in the offtake agreement would account for all of the projected production from Sconi, creating a sound customer foundation to underpin the development of the project.

The offtake agreement was subject to only one condition precedent, being Australian Mines securing financing for the construction of the Sconi project before the end of June next year.

The company said on Monday that it would now move to swiftly finalise agreements with financing partners for the A$1.5-billion project, which is expected to have a mine life of 30 years.

The proposed mine would co-exist alongside a military training facility which forms part of the Australia-Singapore military training initiative.

Recharge Resources Options Nickel Cobalt Project From West Mining

West Mining Corp.
Tue., August 17, 2021, 8:31 a.m.·5 min read

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 17, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Recharge Resources Ltd. (RR: TSX-V) (SLLTF: OTC) (“Recharge” or the “Company”) announces that it has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with West Mining Corp. (“WEST” - CSE) (“West Mining”) whereby the Company may acquire a 75% interest in the Cobalt-Nickel Kagoot Brook project a 4,233-hectare area located in the Bathurst mining camp, New Brunswick, Canada (the “Project”).

Excerpts from a September 21, 2020 NI 43-101 Technical Report authored by Peter Dadson B.Sc., P.Geo. detail the following information: Historical work on the Kagoot Brook property was largely driven by the results received from a 1981 Geological Survey Branch, New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources stream and spring sediment surveys. The results of the survey returned significantly elevated and anomalous cobalt in silts from both tributaries with values varying from 63ppm to 1,316ppm Cobalt. The results of the survey spurred multiple, multi-faceted exploration campaigns through the 1980s and 1990s.

In 2018 Explorex Resources Inc. re-processed the 1986-1987 fixed wing airborne magnetic survey data covering the property. The 3D modelling indicated the Kagoot Brook claims are underlain by a synformal fold structure with a fold axis trending near east-west. In December 2018 magnetic and VLF-EM surveys were completed along widely spaced selected logging road access trails. In July and September 2018, a silt sampling program was completed along the two anomalous creeks to confirm the existence and location of the historical silt sample results. A total of 51 silt samples were collected and confirmed the historical results with cobalt values to 3,190ppm Cobalt. The silt sampling program identified a clear and well defined up stream cut-off to the anomalous cobalt silt values. In December 2018, a two-hole NQ oriented core drill program was completed totalling 501m. The program was designed to test the underlying stratigraphy for the possible source of the anomalous stream sediment silt values. The structural data collected from the oriented core suggests that each drill hole may have been collared on opposing limbs of a tight synformal fold structure. Best results 79ppm Cobalt from the two-hole drill program returned. The author concludes that the property merits further exploration.

Recharge CEO and Director, Yari Nieken, states: “Recharge is focused on identifying domestic sources of battery tetals and this Kagoot Brook property adds yet another highly prospective asset to our growing portfolio that includes nickel, lithium and cobalt assets in established mining jurisdictions.”

“It’s a pleasure to work with a company focussed on the energy sector and Recharge Resources is building a first class portfolio. The deal allows West Mining to still benefit from the Kagoot Brook project whilst keeping our own sights firmly set on the Kena gold and copper project,” commented Nicholas Houghton, President and CEO of West Mining.

The Transaction

Pursuant to the Agreement, West Mining has assigned its original agreement made with Great Atlantic Resources Corp. and Explorex Resources Inc. to Recharge. Recharge may acquire a 75% interest in the Project, subject to an underlying 2% NSR pursuant to the underlying agreement, by issuing to West Mining 1,000,000 common shares and assuming the $650,000.00 exploration commitment to be completed before May 10th, 2023 and a $50,000.00 royalty payment to underlying royalty holders by January 23rd, 2022. Recharge shall issue 500,000 common shares to Great Atlantic Resources for the extension on the exploration expenditures.

The Agreement remains subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval. All shares issued pursuant to the Agreement shall be subject to a hold period of 4 months and 1 day from issuance.

Additionally, the Company has retained Amherst Baer Consultancy Corp for digital marketing services for 3 months at $105,000 USD.

Margaret Lake Diamonds: Old Nick Outcrop and Grab Sample Results and Annual General Meeting

Tuesday, August 17, 2021 8:00 AM

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 17, 2021 / Margaret Lake Diamonds Inc. ("MLD" or the "Company") (TSXV:DIA)(FKT:M85) is pleased to announce at the Company's Annual General Meeting held Thursday August 5 (the "Meeting"), all resolutions proposed were duly passed by the shareholders of the Company.

Shareholders of the Company approved and re-appointed Neil Foran, Jim Wiesenberg, Patrick Butler and George Kovalyov as Directors for the Company.

Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants, were re-appointed as the Company's auditor for the ensuing year and the Board of Directors were authorized to fix the remuneration to be paid.

(Source: Actlabs report # A21-11010)

A total of six outcrop samples were taken across an interval of 0.5-1 meter and five grab samples consisted of angular float boulders. Sample lithology (rock type) was identified as altered mafic rocks or arenaceous metasediments (sericitic quartzite). Alternate mixing zone of the two rock types (altered mafic and sericitic quartzite), appears to be a favourable environment of deposition for Ni-Co-Cr bearing mineralization.

Management intends to explore the depth and lateral extension of the main mineral zone in addition to heap leach SX/EW metallurgical testing of Old Nick mineralization from drill core samples.

The Old Nick deposit consists of two northeast trending stratiform-type nickel mineralized zones. The deposit was discovered in the 1960's and fieldwork identified two generations of pentlandite occurring interstitially within the pyrrhotite. Elevated nickel values are associated with mariposite (fuchsite) bands and extensive alteration haloes. The dunite (peridotite) and quartzite had similar Ni/Cr values suggesting a common source of metal mineralization. Chromium occurs in mariposite (fuchsite). The Upper Zone has an average width of 100 meters while the Lower Zone is approximately 10 to 20 meters wide. Laterally the zones extend for at least 500 meters along strike. The deposits are hosted in Paleozoic-aged Anarchist Group meta-sediments and mafic rocks and the nickel-bearing zones contain increased calcite-silica-sericite-epidote-fuchsite alteration related to pentlandite-pyrrhotite bearing mineralization. There is significant potential to expand the deposit both along strike and down the dip of the known mineralization as well as within the same prospective stratigraphy elsewhere on the property.

Bench scale and column leach testing by Applied Mine Technologies Ltd in 1995 - 1996 indicated the potential for economic recovery of nickel and cobalt by acid heap leaching and selective recovery by the Solvent Extraction / Electrowinning (SX/EW) mineral processing. Margaret Lake Diamonds intends to do further leach tests to verify this favourable information.

In 2007 David K. Makepeace, P. Eng. defined a historic Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 17.24 million tonnes at a grade of 0.1914% Ni and 0.0095% Co, This estimate was prepared in compliance with National Instrument 43-101, but has not been independently verified by the Company and is not to be relied upon.

Gungnir Hits Massive Sulphides at Lappvattnet Nickel Deposit

Thursday, August 19, 2021 6:00 AM

SURREY, BC / ACCESSWIRE / August 19, 2021 / Gungnir Resources Inc. (TSXV:GUG)(OTC PINK:ASWRF) ("Gungnir" or the "Company") is pleased to report that on-going drilling at the Company's Lappvattnet nickel deposit in Sweden continues to intersect sulphide mineralization including a 10-metre core interval containing several narrow sections of massiv:e and semi-massive sulphides in hole LAP21-02. Please click link for drill core photo ( core photo).

Jari Paakki, CEO commented, "We are off to a great start at Lappvattnet which is highlighted so far by hole LAP21-02. We have submitted samples from this hole for priority assaying for nickel and PGEs and expect assay results in the next couple of weeks."

To date, the Company has completed four short drill holes (totaling 350 metes) along two sections spaced about 40 metres apart at the western part of the Lappvattnet deposit. LAP21-01 and LAP21-02 were drilled on Section 8E up-dip of previous drilling including hole 2007-02 which returned 3.21% Nickel over 4.97 metres (from 76.43 metres) and Gungnir re-sampling within this interval returned 50.91 g/t PGEs (39.0 g/t Platinum, 11.8 g/t Palladium, 0.11 g/t Gold) over 0.45 metres. Holes LAP21-03 and LAP21-04 were drilled 40 metres east of LAP21-01 and LAP21-02 on Section 9E. Core logging has been completed for the first three holes which have all encountered variable amounts of sulphides (mainly pyrrhotite, local chalcopyrite and possible pentlandite, a nickel sulphide mineral) hosted in both peridotite and enclosing sedimentary gneisses. Drill co-ordinates and cross sections will be provided once assays are received.

On-going drilling is planned to continue to focus on the shallow, western part of the Lappvattnet deposit. The work plan consists of 10 or more holes, for approximately 1,200 metres, along six to seven sections spaced about 40 metres apart. Along sections, planned hole intercepts are positioned roughly 20 to 70 metres from historic intersections of massive sulphide. In addition to assaying for nickel, copper and cobalt, all mineralized sections will importantly be analyzed for PGEs which were not assayed in most of the drilling at the Lappvattnet deposit. New drilling and assays are expected to be incorporated into future resource upgrades.

Lappvattnet is one of two nickel sulphide deposits held by Gungnir in Sweden, the other deposit named Rormyrberget. In 2020, the Company updated both resources which collectively total 177 million pounds of nickel (see Technical Report with an effective date of November 17, 2020):

  • Lappvattnet: Inferred Resource of 780,000 tonnes grading 1.35% nickel for 23.1 million lbs (10.5 million kg) of nickel.
  • Rormyrberget: Inferred Resource of 36,800,000 tonnes grading 0.19% nickel for 154 million lbs (70 million kg) of nickel.

Fortune Nickel and Gold Provides Updates on its Projects in Canada

Rye Brook, New York--(Newsfile Corp. - August 19, 2021) - Here To Serve Holding Corp. (OTC Pink: HTSC) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary, Fortune Nickel and Gold Inc. ("Fortune" or the "Company") has completed several geophysical, geological, and other technical reviews and soon plans to drill its Gowan and Beck-Ottaway projects located in the Timmins area of Ontario. This area lies at the heart of the Abitibi greenstone belt, which contains some of the world's largest deposits of gold, silver, copper, zinc, nickel, and platinum-group metals.

According to Sharp Geophysical Solutions Inc., Fortune's Beck-Ottaway claims are 10 miles north of Canada Nickel's deposits in the Crawford area and have similar geophysical characteristics. A coincident regional-scale structure interpreted from the gravity, magnetic and resistivity data strikes NW-SE and includes gold, nickel, and copper showings. Two historic drill holes lie equidistant from this structure and contained anomalous gold and nickel (100 ppb and 0.1%, respectively) within ultramafic host rocks. Mineralization at Fortune's Gowan claims have a 1968 discovery drill hole that contained 27 feet of 3.5% nickel and 1.2 % copper that has similar geophysical anomalies to Class One Nickel's Alexo-Dundonald project located 10 miles to the east.

According to Paul Riss, Fortune's President, "Sharp Geophysical Solutions has been extremely positive in their historical reviews and, along with our other consultants, identified several drill targets on both projects. As the Company believes its projects have substantial nickel, gold, and copper potential, it plans to expend at least $5 million dollars during the next two years from capital generated by the operations of its sister company, ICF Industries Inc. Strategic Advisor David Beling, P.E. is currently reviewing drill plans, budgets and other aspects of our proposed drill program to maximize results for every exploration dollar."

During the past 57 years, Mr. Beling examined, significantly reviewed, or was directly involved with 90 underground mines, 136 open pit mines and 168 process plants around the world, mainly in the copper, gold, cobalt, nickel, and uranium sectors. Since 1981, Mr. Beling also served on the board of directors of 15 public and private USA and Canadian mining companies.

From July 2011 to October 2020, Mr. Beling was the President & CEO of Bullfrog Gold Corp. and the General Manager of a proposed open pit and 8,000-tpd heap leach operation near Beatty, Nevada. In October 2020 he completed the purchase of all Barrick Gold's remaining lands in the Bullfrog Mining District and concurrently raised C$23 million from the Augusta Group.

From January 2004 through December 2010, he was the Executive VP & COO of Geovic Mining Corp where he hired and directed the personnel that completed the feasibility study of a US $700 million, world-class cobalt/nickel project in Cameroon, Africa. In 2006 he spearheaded a TSX listing and delivered all the presentations in Canada, UK and US that raised C$112 million by mid-2007. Mr. Beling also performed and later directed investor relations that grew Geovic's market capitalization to US$460 million.

HTSC's other wholly owned subsidiary, ICF Industries Inc., and its division Executive Industries are acquiring additional undervalued assets, the profits from which are intended to fund and advance the two mining projects with the subsequent goal of selling to a major producer. ICF Industries Inc. offers corporate advisory, consulting, and marketing services to both public and privately-owned companies. It helps entities with corporate strategy, negotiation, corporate structure, marketing, and executive management decisions. Shareholders should share management's enthusiasm as HTSC has amassed assets of $6,879,961 and has posted profits for 5 consecutive quarters. Revenues are expected to increase in the current quarter as a record number of clients need and seek the specialized services provided by Executive Industries.

HTSC is a holding company that hunts for undervalued assets in the mining, real estate, and securities industries. In addition to mineral rights, holdings in public company securities and a 15% interest in Kaiyon Biotech Inc., it has two wholly owned subsidiaries. ICF Industries Inc. offers corporate advisory, consulting, and marketing services to both public and privately-owned companies.

Magna Mining Exploration Update for the Shakespeare Ni-Cu-PGM Project, Ontario, Canada

Sudbury, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 17, 2021) - Magna Mining Inc. (TSXV: NICU) ("Magna" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on exploration activities at the Shakespeare Nickel-Copper-PGM Project.

The exploration drilling program is well advanced, with 5,203 meters drilled to date from a planned program of 9,000 meters. Numerous assay results are pending due to severe delays in assay turnaround times.

"Although receipts of assay results are well behind our expectations, we are encouraged by our visual assessments of the drill core," said Mynyr Hoxha, Vice President of Exploration.

The objective of the current drill program at the Shakespeare Mine is to expand near surface resources and test footwall resource expansion targets around the S-13 Zone. At the Shakespeare Mine, 3,726 metres of drilling in 14 holes (plus one deepened hole) have been completed to date (see Figure 1).

Figure 1: Longitudinal section showing 2021 drill traces and pierce points

To view an enhanced version of Figure 1, please visit:

There have been 2,228 samples sent to the assay lab for analysis and to date only 426 received, leaving 1,802 outstanding. This includes ~900 samples which are over 40 days since submission (see Table 1). This issue has been discussed with senior management at the assay provider and attributed to a high turnover in assay lab staff. Steps have been taken to ensure better turn-around-times going forward.

Table 1: List of outstanding samples

Hole IDSamples

Borehole Electro Magnetic (BHEM) surveys conducted at Shakespeare in June will be repeated over the next two weeks. The objective of the planned BHEM survey is to further refine drill targets in the area of the previously identified large gravity anomaly in the footwall of the Shakespeare deposit (the "Birds Bane Anomaly"). The results of the BHEM survey will be used to design follow up drilling which management aims to complete in Q3.

Regional exploration drilling has also been conducted, including 873 metres in 4 holes at the Springer Pit Copper-Gold targets, located approximately 5-kilometers south-east of the Shakespeare deposit. Samples were submitted for assaying in June and July, and results are pending (see Figure 2).

To view an enhanced version of Figure 2, please visit:

At the P-4 Nickel-Copper-PGM target, one hole has been drilled and one is on-going, for a total of 604 metres. P-4 is a highly prospective target, located approximately 5-kilometers on trend with the Shakespeare geological system (see Figure 3). The samples from P-4 will be sent to a different assay lab and assay results are anticipated within 4 weeks.

Aston Minerals targeting nickel-PGE-cobalt mineralisation at Edleston in Canada

Multiple batches of assay results are awaited from the company’s active diamond drilling campaign.

Magnetic Inversion Model - plan view of Boomerang target.

Aston Minerals Ltd ( ASX:ASO, FRA:28W0) has exploration underway across its Edleston Project in Ontario, Canada, targeting nickel-platinum group elements (PGE)-cobalt sulphide mineralisation.

The company is testing the potential for sulphide mineralisation at Edleston where previous exploration by Canex Aerial Exploration and Falconbridge Ltd was conducted in the early 1970s and early 1990s respectively.

Promisingly, Aston’s Boomerang nickel-PGE-cobalt target style is analogous to Waterton Global Resource Management Inc’s Dumont Nickel-PGE-Cobalt Deposit and Canadian Nickel Company’s Crawford Nickel-PGE-Cobalt Deposit.

“Level of similarities”

Aston managing director Dale Ginn said: “The Boomerang target has a significant level of similarities to that of the substantial Durmont and Crawford nickel-PGE-cobalt deposits.

“With a strike length of 5 kilometres, proximity to Glencore’s Sothman Nickel-PGE Deposit located 1 kilometre south of the tenure and within the same stratigraphy, we believe that this compelling target warrants immediate drill testing.

“We are in the process of clearing pads to allow for drilling within a week.

“Further, in an effort to expedite the return of assay results from the company’s ongoing drill program at Edleston, two additional certified laboratories have been contracted and multiple batches of samples have been delivered to these laboratories.”

Extensive serpentinisation

Aston’s Boomerang target is interpreted to be a Dunite/Peridotite unit that has undergone extensive serpentinisation.

This dunite/peridotite body extends over an area of 5 kilometres, is 500 metres to greater than 1,500 metres wide and extends to depths of well over 500 metres.

Extensive mineralisation nickel-PGE-cobalt-copper mineralisation delineated 1 kilometre to the southeast of the project area by Falconbridge.

Based on the interpretation from magnetics, it appears that Glencore PLC ( LSE:GLEN)’s Sothman Nickel-PGE-Cobalt-Copper Deposit is hosted within the same stratigraphic sequence of the Boomerang nickel-PGE-cobalt target.

Forward plan

Aston is awaiting multiple batches of assay results from its ongoing diamond drilling campaign at Edleston.

In addition, the company has contracted two additional laboratories to expedite the return of the drill results.

Furthermore, drill testing of the targets is required to validate the exploration model proposed is set to begin in a week.

Aldoro Resources hits massive sulphides in third and fourth drill holes at Narndee Igneous Complex VC1 target

The gold and nickel-focused explorer has encountered massive sulphides in all four holes at the VC1 target, which forms part of the broader Narndee Igneous Complex near Mount Magnet in Western Australia.

The massive sulphide intersected by hole NDD0003 from 111.6 metres to 113.5 metres downhole.

Aldoro Resources Ltd ( ASX:ARN) has intersected massive nickel-copper sulphides within the third and fourth drill holes at the VC1 target within the Narndee Igneous Complex.

The latest results mean all four holes drilled to date at the high-priority target have intersected massive sulphides, with the third and fourth holes hitting around 1.9 metres and 0.9 metres of massive sulphides, respectively.

In addition, the ASX-lister has confirmed that sulphide mineralisation remains open in all directions beyond the 240-metre zone of drill-tested plunge extent, with analysis confirming that nickel and copper exists within the sulphides.

Paired with the new downhole electromagnetic datasets, Aldoro believes the latest drill results will help inform future drilling campaigns at the VC1 target.

Drill targeting at VC1

Aldoro’s diamond drilling program at the VC1 target forms part of a broader nickel exploration campaign that will take place across the Nardnee complex.

The first hole in the program was designed to test the central, strongest component of the VC1 electromagnetic conductor, but it was the second drill hole that really shined.

In fact, hole NDD0002 intersected significantly thicker and stronger zones of massive, semi-massive, blebby, and veined nickel-copper sulphides than its predecessor, even though it was designed to test a shallower, up-plunge position of the conductor 85 metres to the south-southwest.

The third diamond drill hole was created as an extension of NDD0002’s purpose, situated a further 80 metres to the south-southwest.

Promisingly, this hole returned a massive sulphide intersection between 111.6 metres and 113.5 metres.

Meanwhile, hole NDD0004 moved 80 metres to the north of the original hole, focused on a deeper, down-plunge conductor position.

This hole encountered massive sulphide mineralisation between 272.1 metres and 273 metres.

Ultimately, both the third and fourth holes intersected zones of massive, semi-massive, blebby and veined nickel-copper sulphides.

Overall, the VC1 target starts at the base of oxidation, approximately 115 metres south-southeast of NDD0003 and 45 metres vertically below surface.

The mineralised body’s strike length continues for as much as 100 metres and bears a 550-metre plunge extent.

Looking ahead

As it continues to explore at the Narndee complex, follow-up drilling will be predominantly guided by downhole transient electromagnetic (DHTEM) surveying.

The DHTEM survey crew is currently on-site to survey the holes completed by Aldoro, with the addition of a Maximus hole MNRC0002, which was found and probed to 240 metres last week.

DHTEM will be conducted on all holes completed at VC1 to aid and refine drill targeting.

There are now five holes slated for DHTEM survey; the results of which should significantly refine the models for follow-up drill targeting.

The drill rig will now move to the VC3 target to drill a single hole there, while DHTEM surveying and refined modelling will be completed at VC1.

St George Mining’s new EM conductor points to growing Mt Alexander nickel-copper sulphide potential

The growing number of significant mineralised intercepts and downhole EM conductors at West End and Investigators demonstrates a very large and fertile mineral system.

St George Mining Ltd ( ASX:SGQ) has identified a new electromagnetic (EM) target for massive nickel-copper sulphides at its flagship high-grade Mt Alexander Project in the north-eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.

The company has detected a strong off-hole EM conductor identified from the downhole EM (DHEM) survey in drill hole MAD202 at the West End prospect.

Importantly, the new conductor is within a ‘field of EM conductors’ recently identified at the West End and Investigators prospects, indicating a potential for the presence of a significant volume of mineralisation in or near this area.

“Growing number of significant mineralised intercepts”

St George executive chairman John Prineas said: “Our systematic and concurrent use of drilling and downhole EM surveys has delivered another stand-out result with the identification of one of the most exciting EM conductors at Mt Alexander to date.

“We have a 100% success rate in confirming conductors of this kind as nickel-copper sulphides, so we are confident that drilling this target will deliver another discovery of high-grade mineralisation.

“The growing number of significant mineralised intercepts and downhole EM conductors at West End and Investigators demonstrates a very large and fertile mineral system and further supports the potential for a significant deposit in this area.

“With demand for new sources of nickel sulphide booming and investors actively looking for nickel growth stories, we are excited that more opportunities to expand the mineralised footprint at Mt Alexander are continuing to evolve for our shareholders.”

A compelling target for mineralisation

The EM conductor is modelled with a conductivity of 81,000 siemens, one of the highest of any conductor identified at Mt Alexander to date.

The conductor was observed in the mid to late time data of the DHEM survey and recorded a time constant of 100 milliseconds; the combination of conductivity and time decay of this kind are typical of massive sulphides.

Promisingly, the new EM conductor is coincident with a trend of prominent gravity highs that are interpreted to represent dense rocks – further confirming the conductor as a compelling target for mineralisation.

Drilling results

MAD201 was drilled as the first step-out hole from the deep MAD199 discovery at Investigators which intersected:

  • 11.07 metres at 1.58% nickel, 0.71% copper, 1.23g/t total PGEs from 333.5 metres;
  • 3.9 metres at 3.98% nickel, 1.8% copper, 3.1g/t total PGEs from 340.67 metres; and
  • 1.28 metres at 6.54% nickel, 2.96% copper, 3.88g/t total PGEs from 342.12 metres.
MAD201 intersected 2.4 metres of nickel-copper sulphides from 434.6 metres downhole – 125 metres down-plunge of MAD199 – with assays now confirming:

  • 2.4 metres at 1.66% nickel, 0.55% copper, 0.52g/t total PGEs from 434.6 metres; and
  • 0.26 metres at 6.18% nickel, 1.2% copper, 0.79g/t total PGEs from 436.76 metres.
The field of multiple EM conductors identified at West End and Investigators suggests that this area is a very active part of the Cathedrals Belt mineral system, with the potential for the conductors to be associated with a greater volume of mineralisation along strike or down-dip.

Forward plan

St George has further diamond drilling planned to test the EM conductors at West End and Investigators.

Surface-based EM surveys cannot reliably see to the depths of the new EM conductors, requiring the continued concurrent use of diamond drilling and DHEM surveys to scope out the extent of the deeper mineralisation.

Prior to the commencement of the diamond drilling program, a seismic survey will be completed over parts of West End and Investigators.

The scheduled start of the seismic survey was delayed because of the unavailability of the field crew due to interstate travel restrictions arising from COVID-19 issues in NSW.

The seismic survey is now expected to commence within the next few weeks.

Lithium Australia welcomes SkyTEM survey progress at Charger Metals’ Coates Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-PGE Project

The lithium-focused stock owns a 19.5% in Charger Metals, which recently exercised an option to acquire a 70% stake on three of LIT’s battery metal assets — the Coates, Bynoe and Lake Johnston projects.

Lithium Australia NL ( ASX:LIT, OTC:LMMFF, FRA:3MW) has welcomed the beginning of a SkyTEM312 time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) survey over Charger Metals NL ( ASX:CHR)’s Coates Nickel-Copper-Cobalt-PGE (platinum group element) Project in Western Australia.

The lithium-focused stock owns nearly one-fifth of Charger, which listed on the ASX as a metals explorer in early July.

Charger's new exploration program will test the Coates mafic intrusion and surrounding ground for conductors, including previously defined nickel-copper and PGE geochemical targets.

Charger’s survey should finalise this week, while preliminary data will be made available shortly after.

The SkyTEM survey

The helicopter-borne SkyTEM312 system is used to target large areas that are considered prospective for nickel sulphides.

Promisingly, similar systems have been used by a number of Charger’s neighbours throughout the Julimar district.

The survey is described as a high-resolution, surface-to-depth exploration tool that provides not only mineral exploration data but insight that can be used to inform multiple scientific disciplines over the life of the project, from exploration and mining through to the rehabilitation phases.

Ultimately, high-resolution, near-surface data can facilitate groundwater modelling, overburden thickness calculations for seismics and mine planning and before-and-after studies for mine rehabilitation.

In addition, the survey’s conventional, deeper-looking electromagnetic capability may help detect conductive units between 300 metres and 400 metres deep.

Preliminary data from the SkyTEM survey will be available within days of completing the survey, which will then be processed and analysed by the Company’s geophysics consultant.

The Coates Project Charger’s Coates project is a multi-element asset, located roughly 60 kilometres east of Perth at Wundowie in Western Australia.

Recent interest in the Western Yilgarn geological domain has been driven by a significant mafic intrusive-hosted, high-grade nickel-copper-cobalt discovery in the Julimar district.

Historically, Coates benefitted from an earlier exploration program, conducted by Bauxite Resources ( ASX:BAU) Ltd, which undertook vacuum drilling and sampling at the polymetallic asset.

Geochemical analysis for nickel, copper, gold and PGE has returned anomalous, and often co-incident, values including up to 37 parts per billion platinum, as much as 53 parts per billion palladium and up to 108 parts per billion gold next to the Coates mafic complex.

Lithium Australia becomes substantial holder

After Charger listed on the ASX in early July, Lithium Australia moved to substantial shareholder status with a 19.05% skate in the recent debutant.

Upon listing, Charger exercised its option to acquire a 70% stake in three of LIT's battery metals assets — the Coates, Bynoe and Lake Johnston projects.

Lithium Australia retains exposure to these battery materials projects by way of a 30% free carried interest.

At the time, managing director Adrian Griffin said: "Lithium Australia retains significant exposure to raw materials through its equity in Charger, as well as its free-carried project interests.

“The latter potentially provide access to raw materials that the Lithium Australia group of companies can further process.

“Charger Metals’ specialised expertise will expedite a focused exploration effort, leaving Lithium Australia to concentrate on its core business: the ethical and sustainable supply of energy metals to the battery industry and the development of a circular battery economy.

“We eagerly await exploration outcomes at the Coates, Bynoe and Lake Johnston projects.”
