Azure Minerals has unveiled a new discovery at its Andover nickel-copper project, striking 66m of sulphides in the first hole drilled at the VC-07 West electromagnetic target.
ANDD0041 intersected 36.6m of matrix and heavily disseminated nickel-copper sulphides from 428.15m, and 28.9m of matrix, stringer and disseminated nickel-copper sulphides from 644.1m.
Azure said the mineralisation and associated downhole electromagnetic conductors were open in all directions, with an intensive three diamond drill rig campaign ongoing.
VC-07 West sits in the western part of the mineralised corridor, and around 400m from the first discovery at Andover at VC-07 East.
Drilling to follow up the intersection is underway, in search of mineralisation along strike to the west and for up-dip mineralised extensions.
Azure owns 60% of Andover, with the remaining 40% held by Mark Creasy’s Creasy Group under a joint venture arrangement.
