St George finds many nickel/copper targets near Leonora

St George Mining has identified multiple nickel-copper sulphide targets from down hole electromagnetic survey programs at its Investigators prospect near Leonora in W.A. Recent drilling at the prospect identified sulphide mineralisation up to 7.55m thick, including nearly 1.3m of high grade massive sulphides. The company reported that a diamond rig has arrived at site to commence extensional and infill drilling on the new exploration targets.

Middle Island hits high grades in resource drill out

Middle Island Resources has returned some serious diamond drilling results going nearly 2 ounces to the tonne gold near Sandstone. Higher grade results were returned from BIF and basalt units, including 2m @ 54g/t from 340m down-hole and 93m @ 2.57g/t from surface respectively. The target tonalite intrusion returned thick lower grade results including 165m @ 1.11g/t gold from 85m down-hole at the Two Mile Hill deeps deposit.

Strike opens up the pumps at Jaws-1

Strike Energy’s landmark Jaws-1, super-deep coal seam gas well in the Cooper Basin of South Australia, continues to demonstrate excellent productivity with water production rising 18% to 1300 barrels per day. The pumps are being run at less than 50% capacity while reservoir pressure is currently about of the original pressure prior to beginning depressurisation. Strike is managing the water drawdown to maximise gas recovery.

Aquabotix expands links to US military

Underwater drone developer Aquabotix has joined the Information Warfare Research Project consortium which provides members with a fast tracked route to secure contracts offered by the US Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command. The company will gain access to key partners and customers and gain the ability to be able to carry out rapid research and prototyping using nondilutive funding options available under the OTA.

Azumah onto 3km gold target in Ghana

Azumah Resources has outlined several new gold exploration targets from geophysical interpretations of a comprehensive VTEM survey at its emerging Wa East gold camp in northwest Ghana. The company says the 3km long Eve target has all the hallmarks of the Julie system nearby, which holds 834,000 gold ounces. The new target coincides with strongly anomalous gold geochemistry in surface sampling, but has not yet been drill tested.

Lithium Australia hits wide mineralised zones in Europe

Lithium Australia has announced consistent grades of lithium in three diamond drill holes completed at its emerging Sadisdorf project in eastern Germany. Results include 78.51m @ 0.51% lithium oxide from 78.49m and 68.76m @ 0.51% lithium oxide from 211.49m down-hole in the same hole. Other results of 19.74m @ 0.65% tin from 83.42m down-hole and 15.97m grading 0.5% tungsten were also recorded from the polymetallic deposit.

Sublime copper-gold results for Hammer at Mt Frosty

Hammer Metals’ diamond drilling has returned a near surface intercept of 14m @ 5.93g/t gold and 2.19% copper including 5.5m @14.5g/t gold and 6.87% copper at the Jubilee prospect within its Mt Frosty JV near Mt Isa in Queensland. Fresh sulphide mineralisation samples from the drilling will be used for preliminary metallurgical studies to determine copper, gold and cobalt recoveries with results expected soon.

82m of graphite for BlackEarth in Madagascar

ASX listed BlackEarth Minerals has made an exceptional near-surface intercept of 81.8 metres grading 6.1% total graphitic carbon at the Haja prospect in southern Madagascar that raises the likelihood of a resource upgrade. Further assays from the 26 hole program are expected to be received soon and the company expects to release a maiden JORC-compliant resource estimate for Haja soon.

Reedy identifies conductor at US lithium brine play

Reedy Lagoon has received some very encouraging results from a subsurface 3D geophysical survey at its Clayton Valley project in Nevada, USA. The survey shows an intriguing, 200m thick, conductive mass, starting from about 250m vertical depth, which the company says could represent multiple lithium-rich brine aquifers. The project is directly adjacent to Albemarle’s Silver Peak mine, which is North America’s only producing lithium brine operation.

Calidus hits surface gold in Pilbara

Drilling at Calidus Resources flagship Warrawoona gold project near Marble Bar in the east Pilbara has returned absolute surface gold hits including 8m @ 3.9g/t gold from 0m at the St George Shear prospect. St George has similar geology and gold mineralisation to the highest‐grade lodes across the Klondyke Main Shear and the company is carrying out infill drilling now.

Geopacific now holding 93% of PNG goldfield

Geopacific Resources has increased its effective interest in the promising Woodlark Island gold project in PNG to 93%. The company recently achieved its second tranche milestone with project JV partner Kula Gold Limited, of which Geopacific owns an 85% stake. On site, the company is continuing its extensive soil sampling program, which has outlined multiple targets and a DFS is also well underway.

PharmAust to start phase II dog cancer trials

ASX listed Pharmaust is preparing to carry out phase II clinical trials on dogs for its anti-cancer drug Monepantel, expected to kick off in quarter 4. Data from the canine phase II trial will be combined with lab tests to confirm Monepantel’s effectiveness at killing selected human tumour cells to form the basis for clinical trials in humans.
