Drilling starts at Musket nickel sulphide project


Rox Resources announced that its diamond drilling programme has started at its Fisher East nickel sulphide project, located 500km north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.


The drilling program involves 10 holes for the area of 3,200m with a purpose to help with the designation of the high grade nickel sulphide zones at the Musket and Cannonball prospects along strike from the Camelwood nickel sulphide deposit.


The most recent results of the drilling works at Musket include:


2m @ 8.1% Ni from 227m downhole in hole MFEC065, within

8m @ 3.3% Ni from 227m, within

17m @ 2.2% Ni from 227m, and


1m @ 6.2% Ni from 215m downhole in hole MFEC059, within

4m @ 3.2% Ni from 214m, within

17m @ 2.2% Ni from 214m.


Managing director Ian Mulholland said: “We are excited to be following up this potential thick, high grade nickel sulphide zone at Musket. The previous Reverse Circulation drilling we completed also indicated the presence of high tenor massive sulphides with high Platinum Group Element (PGE) values.


“To get some diamond core of this material will not only assist us in understanding the geology and mineralogy of the prospect, it will assist us in defining the extent of mineralisation at the same time.


“Our recent success in raising capital has allowed us to commence the drilling program one week ahead of schedule, and we expect to receive the assays from the first hole in approximately four weeks.”
