Impact Minerals Limited, Further High Grade Copper-Nickel Sulphides Intersected at the Red Hill Prospect, Broken Hill

A second drill hole, RHD006 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 27 m thick zone containing multiple zones of high grade nickel and copper including, for the first time, massive sulphide in a 0.5 m wide unit.
The mineralisation occurs above the recently reported high-grade coppernickel- platinum group element (PGE) mineralisation from RHD001 that returned an intercept of:
32 metres at 1% copper, 0.5% nickel, 3.9 g/t Pt+Pd+Au and 10.6 g/t silver from 46 m down hole.
Within this intercept in RHD001 there are three higher grade zones of veins and breccias, two of which can be correlated with the mineralised zones in RHD006 (announcement dated 17th December 2014).
The two zones in RHD001 returned best intercepts of:
4.2 m at 2.6% copper, 0.5% nickel 10.6 g/t Pt-Pd-Au from 71.6 metres
5.1 m at 1.9% copper, 0.9% nickel, 6.2 g/t Pt-Pd-Au and 18 g/t silver from 57.3 metres.
Assays from RHD006 are expected in about three weeks.
