eMetals (EMT) has begun drilling at the Poona Project’s Mughal nickel and Raj tantalum prospects in WA.

The company has planned a total of 1,400 metres of drilling across both prospects, testing for nickel-copper-platinum group element (PGE) geochemical anomalies. Drilling at six reverse circulation drill holes has begun, targeting a discrete conductor.

Drill holes are planned to intersect the modelled plates at approximately 100 metres vertical depth, to test the electromagnetic models.

Soil sampling at the Mughal Nickel Propsect previously returned results of up to 0.15 per cent nickel, 162 parts per million (ppm) copper, 145 ppm cobalt and 68 ppb PGE.

At the Raj Prospect, multiple high grade tantalite bearing pegmatites assays were returned over a strike length exceeding 800 metres.

eMetals Director Mathew Walker said the company was excited to commence the maiden drilling program on the prospects.

“This represents significant progress following successful sampling work programs to identify drill targets,” Mr Walker said.

“We look forward to providing a steady flow of results as the drill program progresses.”

eMetals shares were up 5.26 per cent, trading at 2 cents at 3:30 pm AEST.
