Pursuit Minerals (PUR) has kicked off a soil sampling program at the Combatant Project in WA.

Combatant is located around 270 kilometres northeast from Geraldton and 210 kilometres west of Meekatharra. The company has two exploration licences covering 404 squared kilometres, which is made up of the Combatant platinum group element-nickel-copper project. The province comprises mafic and ultramafic rocks that Pursuit has said may contain mineralisation.  

Pursuit Minerals, in conjunction with Terra Resources, completed interpretation of the available aeromagnetic data and defined anomalies likely due to prospective mafic-ultramafic rock units. Through this, the work identified areas best suited for geochemical sampling and shallow aircore drilling.

Terra Resources also completed a review of the geophysics and provided aeromagnetic and gravity images for Pursuit geologists.

A crew has now been mobilised from Perth, with the program expected to take four weeks to complete and will see around 625 samples collected.

The company said radiometric data suggests that ten areas at the project are suitable for soil sampling, along with three other potential locations.  

Pursuit Minerals last traded at 5.1 cents on September 15.
