  • Galileo Mining (GAL) intersects mineralisation at the Callisto discovery within its Norseman project in WA
  • The company drilled 11 holes in a phase two program with every hole intersecting disseminated sulphide mineralisation with confirmed nickel and copper
  • Mineralisation now extends over 300 metres of strike on the southern and central lines and over 200 metres on the northern line of the Callisto discovery
  • Further drilling is planned for later this month to expand the known mineralisation
  • Company shares last traded at $1.23 on July 12

Galileo Mining (GAL) has intersected mineralisation at the Callisto discovery within its Norseman project in Western Australia.

The company completed a second round of reverse circulation (RC) drilling which included 11 holes. Every hole intersected disseminated sulphide mineralisation consistent with the first phase of drilling.

Furthermore, portable XRF analysis confirmed the presence of nickel and copper sulphides within each hole.

Following these outcomes, the mineralised sulphide zone now extends over 300 metres of strike on the southern and central lines and over 200 metres across strike on the northern line. Mineralisation remains open in all directions.

Galileo has sent off samples to the lab for assaying with results expected in August.

The company plans to undertake further RC drilling to expand the mineralisation along strike and to the west and diamond drilling will focus on the down dip zones to the east.

A program of works application has already been approved, allowing Galileo to get the next round of RC drilling underway later this month. Subsequent diamond drilling is planned to commence in August.

Company shares last traded at $1.23 on July 12.
