Sirius Resources (ASX: SIR) will tomorrow commence its first drilling program on the Fraser Range project in Western Australia.
Mark Bennett, Managing Director and CEO, said the program will comprise of initial 2,000m reverse circulation (RC) drilling, testing three nickel-coppercobalt soil anomalies: Gnama South, Talbot and Talbot 1.
The three soil anomalies are located at the extreme southern end of the project area, and are each 300-400 metres long.
The program also aims to verify a hole drilled in 1969 at the Gnama South prospect which is reported to have intersected minor disseminated sulphides in mafic and ultramafic rocks.
The initial drilling program is scheduled to take approximately two weeks to complete and the company anticipates that assay results will be available by mid-May.
Elsewhere on the project, several previously reported regional soil geochemical anomalies are awaiting more detailed infill sampling to define additional drill targets. Sirius Resources said this will be undertaken as time permits over the coming months.
