Zenith Minerals has confirmed the presence of promising nickel sulphide targets following ground-based electromagnetic (EM) geophysical surveys at the Hayes Hill Lithium-Nickel Project, situated in the Norseman-Widgiemooltha area of Western Australia. 

Zenith Minerals’ Managing Director, Michael Clifford, said that he is pleased to announce that complementary to the Hayes Hill lithium exploration programs, EM geophysical surveying has defined two EM conductors associated with strong surface geochemical anomalies at the Green Bananas target, that are considered high priority nickel sulphide drill targets. 

“We have commenced the process for drill permitting these compelling targets and hope to get these targets tested in the near term,” Mr Clifford said. 

The findings include one discrete, strong bedrock conductor with a conductivity of up to 20,000 siemens, located immediately west of the geochemical target, and another conductor situated directly south. 

Zenith Minerals is in the process of obtaining drill permits to further explore these targets. This development follows the company’s decision to not only focus on the lithium potential of the Hayes Hill project but also to explore the nickel sulphide upside, given the project’s location in a known nickel district.

In addition to the EM survey results, recent hand auger geochemical sampling at the Green Bananas target has yielded encouraging assay results, including peak values of 0.43 per cent nickel (Ni), 0.44 per cent copper (Cu), 0.53 per cent cobalt (Co), and 203ppm platinum (Pt). 

Zenith Minerals said that these results further underscore the potential of the Hayes Hill project in hosting significant mineral deposits.
