Galileo Mining (GAL) has hit nickel and copper sulphides in all holes drilled at the Mine Lease prospect within the Norseman project in Western Australia.

Ten holes were drilled within the project area for 1568 metres, with the six reverse circulation holes on Galileo’s mine lease all intersecting disseminated copper and nickel sulphides.

Reverse circulation drilling was a follow up to a previous shallow sulphide intercept of 27 metres at 0.58 grams per tonne (g/t) of palladium, 0.12 g/t platinum, 0.18 per cent nickel, and 0.13 per cent copper from 123 metres.

Laboratory assays are estimated to be available in three weeks for one priority hole, and around eight weeks for the remainder.

“We continue to receive highly encouraging results from our Norseman project with disseminated nickel-copper sulphides intersected in every drill hole undertaken at our Mine Lease prospect,” Galileo’s Managing Director Brad Underwood said.

“The Mine Lease prospect is open in all directions however the sulphides appear to be increasing towards the east.”

“This will be the area of immediate focus with a 2000 metre follow up reverse circulation drill program planned to begin once pending assays are returned and drill sites have been finalised.”

Galileo’s next round of drilling is planned to commence after the receipt of laboratory assays.

Galileo Mining last traded at 23.5 cents on May 3.
