Metals explorer Venus Metals (VMC) has identified several prospective target areas within its Henderson gold and nickel project.
VMC conducted a review of historical data and identified five gold targets as well as a nickel target located 50 kilometres northwest of Menzies in the eastern Goldfields region.
Snake Hill is the highest priority of the five gold targets, after historical rock chip samples revealed 5.1 grams of gold per tonne and an initial 500ppbAu soil lag anomaly.
The data pinpointed four other targets; Henderson Bore, Snake Hill East, Hill Top East and Emerald South 1 and 2.
VMC said there could be the potential for a Mt Alexander-style or Jimberlana Dyke-style nickel mineralization, in an area that covers a Proterozoic dyke in a sequence of the Ularring Greenstone Belt and adjacent granites.
Venus Metals has submitted four exploration licence applications at the Henderson gold and nickel project covering 597 square kilometres, and the company will update shareholders as further detailed exploration commences following the grant of the tenement areas in the coming months.
The companies share price is 2.2 per cent in the red at at market close, with shares trading for 17.5 cents each.
