Galileo Mining Ltd made promising results from a recent assay of soil samples taken from its Norseman Project in Western Australia.

According to the Norseman Exploration update, nickel sulphide exploration is “progressing well” based on the results of multi-element assays received from 1,620 unique sample locations. A total of 1,726 assays were collected.

The company is currently undertaking integration and analysis of soil sampling data.

“Soil sampling at Norseman was primarily undertaken to identify areas with prospectivity for nickel sulphide mineralisation,” the announcement said.

On 15 December 2020, Galileo announced that it had outsourced a specialist remote sensing company’s services to collect hyperspectral data and integrate new mapping information with pre-existing data. 

Galileo Mining plans to pursue a follow-up exploration program once data integration and analysis is completed, a process that is expected to come to fruition no later than late February. The upcoming results will be used in drill planning for Q2 2021.

Located only 10 km from the Western Australian town Norseman, the Norseman project is a wholly-owned project containing significant cobalt-nickel resource.
