Mincor's 'Golden Mile' an exploration 'nirvana'

It will not be drilled until the first half of next year but Mincor Resources is very excited about getting the opportunity to explore ground it believes is about as prospective as it gets in the hugely historically prolific Kambalda nickel belt (reports MiningNews).

The ground lies between the Durkin North and Long resources at Kambalda, with Mincor hopeful mineralisation may be continuous over the circa 1.1km between the two deposits.

The area hasn't been drilled before because according to Mincor managing director David Southam, the area between the two deposits was cut by a lease boundary owed either side by Mincor and IGO.

He described as akin to the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea, with Mincor the South Korea of the situation according to Southam.

Now consolidated, Southam described it as "premium nickel space".

However, the clear pointer as to just how prospective Mincor sees the ground is surely seen in evocatively calling it "The Golden Mile of Nickel" and "Nickel Nirvana" at Paydirt's Australian Nickel Conference.

Meanwhile, Mincor is current firmly focused on bringing its Cassini discovery into production, with the deposit funded, permitted, approved and ready to go".

Full-scale development expected to ramp up in the current quarter, with first ore late in the March quarter 2021.

Drilling of the "Golden Mile" will likely begin around the same time.
