Nimy (ASX:NIM) pulls copper-nickel feed from Masson jar at Mons in Forrestania

Nimy Resources’ latest assays from its Masson copper-nickel sulphide discovery have extended known mineralisation and further demonstrated the potential for a high-grade feeder source within its district-scale Mons project on the northern end of Western Australia’s Forrestania nickel belt.

The company’s sulphide-rich down-hole intercepts from Masson prospect at Mons Nickel Project near Paynes Find were up to 45 metres thick and intersected massive to disseminated metals in sulphides.

Nimy’s intercepts had copper values of up to 0.69 per cent, and nickel at 0.7%, cobalt to 0.16%, and platinum group elements to the tune of 0.59 grams per tonne.

The Masson area was previously mapped as entirely granite, but Nimy marked a discovery at the overlooked area within a new greenstone belt late last year, noting the belt lay roughly 80 kilometres north-south and 20km east-west, and entirely within Nimy’s borders.

Nimy Executive Director Luke Hampson said the latest results had not only enhanced the prospectivity of Masson but highlighted the outstanding potential of an entire greenstone belt under the company’s control.

“The follow up eight-hole drill program has significantly enhanced the prospectivity of the Masson prospect and the entire newly identified greenstone belt under cover and unexplored that is held by Nimy Resources,” Hampson said.

“Drilling has extended the sulphide zone to a 160m strike length and to a depth of 216 metres. The copper, nickel, cobalt and platinum group element sulphide mineralisation is associated with a mafic intrusive rock similar the Nova Bollinger and Savannah deposits in Western Australia.”

Nimy’s Masson mineralisation is subvertical, now extending to 160m along strike and 216m down dip and remaining open in all directions.

The mineralisation is also notably entirely different to the thick komatiite flows found in the project’s southern end.

Nimy’s strategy is to close in on high-grade mineralisation, with the company planning to immediately extend exploration at the prospect with higher-level geophysical surveys and drilling.

The explorer’s fully owned tenements cover over 2500 square kilometres and the majority of currently identified mineralised systems.

It intends to continue to review its unexplored greenstone belt, with a view towards choosing priority orogenic gold and sulphide-hosted copper and nickel targets for the drill.
