Galileo Hits Intersect At Lantern Project

Galileo Mining has announced some significant results from its Lantern Project,  as part of the Kitchener northern tenement as part of the Fraser Range Zone.

Reverse Circulation drilling revealed a source of geochemical anomaly by intersecting nickel and copper sulphidemineralisation in fresh rock.  Of three RC Drill holes, the following results have been revealed with a reported 0.1% copper cut off grade.

  • LARC001 10m @ 0.21% nickel and 0.14% copper from 62m (weathered rock)
  • LARC002 21m @ 0.19% nickel and 0.18% copper from 59m (weathered rock)
  • LARC003 12m @ 0.38% nickel and 0.33% copper from 124m (sulphide)
  • LARC003 5m @ 0.13% nickel and 0.13% copper from 150m (sulphide)

LARC001 and LARC002 confirmed the anomaly while LARC003 identified the source by intersecting it.

“This is an excellent result from the first ever RC drilling program at the Lantern Prospect. We have now discovered a fertile mineralised system containing nickel and copper sulphides. Our next step is to define the extent and quantity of the target metals and, given that we have over two kilometres of untested strike length at this one target alone, the potential for a large discovery is outstanding.” According to Brad Underwood, Managing Director of Galileo Mining.

Galileo now has further downhole EM surveys on LARC003 to complete as well as step out aircore and RC drilling around the LARC003 hole. There is also planned aircore and diamond core drilling as part of the upcoming drill program.
