Galileo Mining begins AC drill programme at Norseman project in WA

ASX-listed Galileo Mining has started a 10,000 metres air core (AC) drilling campaign at its Norseman Project in the Kambalda nickel belt of Western Australia (WA).

The programme will test multiple prospective palladium and nickel targets within the region that have been identified by soil sampling and previous drilling.

Galileo managing director Brad Underwood said: “We are delighted to be underway with our air core drill campaign at Norseman. 10,000 metres of drilling allow us to cover the five priority palladium-nickel targets as well as drilling new prospective areas at the Mt Thirsty and Woodcutters prospects.”

The campaign is planned to run for about six weeks and is designed to develop multiple prospects for follow up reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling programmes scheduled for 2022.

Galileo’s wholly-owned Norseman Project contains a cobalt-nickel JORC resource and additional prospects with potential for copper, nickel and cobalt mineralisation. The company has been involved with the Norseman Project since 2006 as a private company and is now accelerating its exploration and development activities as a publicly listed outfit.
