Aston Minerals (ASO) has intersected nickel sulphides at its wholly-owned Edleston project in Canada through a 12-hole series of diamond drilling.

The Boomerang target, where the nickel sulphides were intersected is located within the Bardwell prospect in the larger Edleston project in Ontario.

Intersections include 144 metres at 0.38 per cent nickel and 0.014 per cent cobalt starting at 84 metres, with 53.5 metres at 0.49 per cent nickel and 0.017 per cent cobalt from 174.5 metres.

ASO added there was visible nickel sulphide mineralisation from 228 metres to the end of the hole at 267 metres with 40 metres assays still pending.

A 350-metre drill hole found 164 metres of nickel sulphide of which assays are still pending.

Three sections along the 6.5 strike all returned visible nickel sulphide mineralisation. Eight holes are currently being assessed for assay results.

“The results from DDED21-059 have confirmed that the Boomerang Target represents a significant nickel discovery in terms of both its grade and extent,” Managing Director Dale Ginn said.

“This was only our second drill hole into the Boomerang Target so to have returned such an outstanding intercept is testimony towards the nature and scale of the target”.

Aston shares were down 4.8 per cent at $0.10 at midday AEDT.
