KEY PROJECT– SYMONS HILL

 Location

 

Symons Hill Ni-Cu Project WA (E28/1932 - 100% Boadicea) 

 

The flagship Symons Hill Project is located within the Fraser Range, 4km from the Nova-Bollinger nickel-copper mine. The Fraser Range is situated halfway between Norseman and Balladonia, 100km east of Norseman in Western Australia.

 

Boadicea is advancing the Symons Hill Project systematically, collecting and analysing quality datasets and drill testing priority targets, as warranted.

 

Late in the December Quarter a Moving Loop Electromagnetic Survey (“MLEM”) commenced comprising surveying of an initial three (SH-07, SH-12 & SH-13) of eight priority targets located within the highly under-explored northern part of the project area. The fourth target is SH-04 where the planned program was designed to follow-up MLEM anomalies defined earlier in 2017.

 

The currently defined 9 targets at Symons Hill have been selected using the Company’s high quality proprietary datasets and model criteria refined from Boadicea and competitor exploration results. Importantly, the northern part of the project area (Targets SH-07 to SH-13) has to date been subjected to no detailed on-ground exploration.

 

Results from the MLEM survey in progress are expected in late January 2018..

SH-07 Target

The SH-07 Target was selected on the basis of encouraging coincident gravity and aeromagnetic anomalism with associated proximal weak nickel-copper-cobalt soil anomalism. The target is located on the edge of a significant palaeochannel system.

SH-12 Target 

The SH-12 Target was selected on the basis of encouraging coincident gravity, aeromagnetic and airborne EM (VTEM) anomalism. A previous incomplete ground MLEM survey was abandoned due to accessibility issues (thick scrub), which has now been resolved. This survey defined a moderate conductor that at the time was recommended for drill testing. The current MLEM survey is planned to infill and step-out from this anomaly as well as test other parts of the target area.
