  • File Share to FacebookShare to TwitterEmail UsCopy the Link ASX-listed nickel explorer, Estrella Resources has recently completed an “experimental”.
  • seismic survey over the major basal contact at its Carr Boyd nickel project about 80km north-north-east of Kalgoorlie..
  • The Perth-based company described the survey as a necessary de-risking tool it says will increase the success rate of deeper drilling targeting the basal contact for nickel sulphides..
  • The stand-out nickel sulphide hit from the latest round of diamond drilling was 20.1m at an average grade of 1.04 per cent nickel and 0.67 per cent copper from 368.5m down-hole..
  • Within that wide intersection was a higher-grade core of 2.45m grading 1.65 per cent nickel and 2.01 per cent copper, 5.88m at 1.39 per cent nickel and 0.66 per cent copper, and 2.1m at 1.37 per cent nickel and 0.54 per cent copper..
  • Other notable intercepts were 13.9m going 1.18 per cent nickel from 431.6m depth including 3.2m at 3.19 per cent nickel and 0.64 per cent copper from 436.3m, and 4.9m at 0.96 per cent nickel from a whopping 603.7m depth including 1.71m at 1.63 per cent nickel and 0.66 per cent copper..
  • Interestingly, down-hole electromagnetic survey data received by Estrella shows the T5 conductor continuing to increase with depth..
  • Deeper drilling will be planned once results of the seismic survey have been fully interpreted and small-scale faulting of the contact has been considered, the company says..
  • The seismic program featured a new type of low-impact vibrator called an e-Vibe, operated by Ultramag and was the first time the system in tandem with new seismic nodes from Schlumberger was deployed in a hard-rock, Archean nickel environment, according to Estrella..
  • Estrella says the compact seismic source allowed it to access areas previously inaccessible to conventional seismic machinery due to its cost, size and environmental impact…
