Mineral exploration company Western Mines Group has started deep diamond drilling at its Mulga Tank Project on the Minigwal Greenstone Belt in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia (WA).

This move follows the completion of a phase two reverse circulation drilling programme.

The company reports that the diamond drill-hole, designated MTD029, has reached a depth of 300m.

The objective of this drill-hole is to explore the potential for a sulphide-enriched keel within the deepest segment of the Mulga Tank complex.

Western Mines has reported progress in its exploration activities at the Mulga Tank project, with recent drilling confirming the presence of nickel sulphide mineralisation.

This exploration is part of a strategic effort to discover gold and nickel sulphide deposits across WA.

The Mulga Tank project, known for its potential in nickel, copper, cobalt and platinum group elements, has been the focus of various drilling programmes over the past year.

This latest phase of exploration was supported by a grant from the WA Government’s Exploration Incentive Scheme.

Following a 17-hole phase two reverse circulation drilling programme, the company has encountered promising results. The phase two drilling aimed to infill around a core area identified in the company’s JORC (Joint Ore Reserve Committee) exploration target modelling.

However, the drilling operations faced a three-week delay due to adverse weather conditions including rain and flooding in the Eastern Goldfields region.

Despite these challenges, samples from the recently completed drilling have been sent to the ALS Laboratory in Perth for geochemical assay.
