The first drill hole from Impact Minerals Limited’s (ASX:IPT) maiden drill programme at the Red Hill Prospect near Broken Hill in New South Wales has intersected a 30 metre wide zone that contains high-grade nickel and copper in six separate zones.
The six vein and breccia-style zones are each up to 4 m thick (total width of about 15 m) and occur from 46 m to 76 m down-hole in diamond drill hole RDH001. They contain a mixture of nickel and copper sulphide, oxide and carbonate minerals together with pyrite and pyrrhotite.
In a few places the veins comprise massive sulphide up to 20 cm thick and these may have been remobilised from a larger body of massive sulphide at depth.
A hand held XRF instrument has been used to analyse the drill core at 50 cm intervals through the mineralised zone.
