Great Boulder secures interest in highly prospective WA copper-nickel project

Petrography and geochemistry samples taken from Great Boulder RC drilling confirm the high nickel-tenor of the sulphide mineralisation, with pentlandite observed in both drill holes. Based on the recent metallurgical testwork from Mt Venn, the high nickel-tenor at Winchester makes it particularly attractive as a blend for Great Boulder’s Yamarna project, as does its potential to host higher grade nickel sulphide mineralisation.

Great Boulder Managing Director Mr Stefan Murphy said the Winchester project could play an important role in the Company’s strategy to establish a substantial copper-nickel-cobalt operation.

Mr Murphy said that “The Winchester project represents part of a large igneous province with magmatic sulphide mineralisation now identified over a vast area. Only a very small area has been drill tested at Winchester and the presence of high-grade copper and nickel mineralisation, confirmed through petrography, is extremely promising. Combining Winchester with our Mt Venn and Eastern Mafic deposits at Yamarna is an important step in building a consolidated copper-nickel-cobalt business for the region.”
