Under-Explored Kimberley West For Nickel And Gold
In March 2017, Longford announced it had executed an option to acquire an 80% interest in the West Kimberley Project, located 95km north-east of Derby. The project consists of two tenements, E04/1972 (granted) and E04/2314, which cover the north-west extension of the Ruin Dolerite. This also hosts Buxton Resources’ Double Magic nickel sulphide discovery.
The Company’s main area of interest is a 4km (long?) high magnetic structure identified during previous field work. Drilling intercepted dense zones of stratiform sulphide accumulations within the magnetic structure. Minor, sphalerite (Zn) and trace amounts of chalcopyrite (Cu) and galena (Pb) were identified in a hand specimen within the sulphides. The Company believes that any soil anomalies identified within the 4km magnetic structure which hosts the stratiform sulphides will make a compelling drill target.
