Dundas Minerals (ASX: DUN) has returned promising preliminary results from an audio-magnetotelluric (AMT) survey at the Albany-Fraser Orogen prospect.
An AMT survey measures variations in the earth’s natural electromagnetic fields. The AMT method provides detailed information about potential variations in the subsurface at shallow to intermediate depths.
The survey was able to identify conductive anomalies which “may be massive sulphides (which can host nickel and copper mineralisation) or possibly graphite”.
“The identification of these conductive anomalies at the Central Target is extremely rewarding, and testament to the exploration methodology that we have been following,” said Managing Director Shane Volk.
Dundas has successfully completed several surveys in the past few months, with the hopes to kick off its first round of drilling in mid 2022.
Dundus is now progressing a soil sampling program to commence on 17 March. The objective of this program is to test for any nickel, copper and other mineral anomalies at the surface.
“Anomalous values for minerals such as nickel or copper from the soil survey would be extremely encouraging, and I’d expect to see us move as quickly as possible to drilling if this was the case.”
