  • As announced last month, the company received $150,000 under the state government’s Exploration Incentive Scheme which is being used to co-fund drilling

Moho Resources (MOH) has begun drilling at its Silver Swan North project in Western Australia to test the Omrah and Wise nickel targets.

The program will include 4200 metres of reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling, and will initially target an untested electromagnetic conductor at the Omrah prospect. The prospect holds untapped potential for ultramafic-hosted massive and disseminated nickel sulphide mineralisation and other ultramafics in the area.

The rig will then move to the nearby Wise prospect to kick off 1200 metres of RC drilling to investigate magnetic anomalies associated with ultramafic rocks and anomalous historical nickel intercepts.

This program is being co-funded through the WA government’s exploration incentive scheme (EIS). The EIS grant was announced last month and is for the sum of $150,000.

Managing Director Shane Sadleir commented on the commencement of drilling.

“We are looking forward to testing the EM conductor at Omrah, given the potential for discovery of nickel sulphide mineralisation and the close proximity to Poseidon Nickel’s massive and disseminated nickel sulphide deposits,” he said.

Moho ended the day 6.67 per cent in the green to close at 6.4 cents per share.
