Vera’s Gossan confirmed as nickel, copper target

Rock chip and soil sampling assays return anomalous nickel, copper, cobalt with EM survey commencing early next week.

Nimy Resources (ASX:NIM) (ASX:NIM) advises that rock chip and soil sampling of Vera’s Gossan has returned anomalous nickel, copper, cobalt and zinc ahead of the MLEM survey being conducted across the area.

Vera’s Gossan Prospect

  • Rock chip sampling of Vera’s Gossan has returned anomalous assays with the peak sample being NRR00004 with nickel at 2,750ppm, copper at 1,119ppm, cobalt at 1,370ppm, zinc at 3,180ppm and sulphur at 1,360ppm.
  • A copper, nickel, cobalt, zinc and sulphur coincident soil anomaly has been mapped at a 1km strike length and remains open.
  • The gossan outcrop is approximately 25 metres in diameter, samples returned anomalous values of nickel, copper, cobalt, zinc and sulphur.
  • The gossan is 13kms directly west of the Masson nickel, copper, cobalt and PGE massive sulphide discovery.
  • A moving loop electromagnetic survey is due to commence within days with GAP Geophysics onsite.

Nimy Executive Director Luke Hampson said:

Vera’s Gossan is shaping up as similar to the Masson Discovery opening the door to multiple occurrences of nickel, copper, cobalt, PGE mineralised intrusive deposits across the greenstone belt. The EM survey is an important building block as we continue to unlock significant mineralisation at the Mons Proįect. Our initial success in locating two occurrences of massive sulphide mineralisation within a largely unexplored new 3004km² greenstone belt gives us confidence in the EM strategy we have developed, further identifying mineralisation and drill targets at Veras Gossan”.
