New geophysical surveys by Gap Geophysics have highlighted a number of conductive features within the Cathedrals Belt that are compelling targets for the extension of nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation including:
- A large conductive area identified adjacent to the intersection of the Ida Fault and Cathedrals Belt, a highly prospective location for the potential concentration of nickelcopper sulphide mineralisation
- Two conductive anomalies identified in the northern section of the Investigators Prospect, favourably located down-dip and along strike of known high-grade nickel-copper sulphides
- Two conductive anomalies identified in the underexplored Bullets Prospect, to the east of and along strike of high-grade mineralisation discovered at the Cathedrals Prospect
- New targets are corroborated by data from three separate geophysical surveys – the recent Sub-Audio Magnetics (SAM) survey as well as prior moving loop EM (MLEM), fixed loop EM (FLEM) and fixed loop SAMSON surveys
The recent SAM survey has identified a large conductive feature, with an interpreted strike in excess of 300 metres, at the intersection of the Ida Fault and the Cathedrals Belt. The Ida Fault is a deep, tectonic fault that is known to be associated with significant mineral deposits to the north and south of the Mt Alexander Project.
