Global Energy Metals Corporation announced that its strategic partner, Kingsrose Mining Limited, has acquired and interpreted ground-based electromagnetic (EM) and other surveys at the Bruvann Mine area of the Råna Project in Norway.
The surveys identified strong apparent conductive bodies with the potential for massive sulphide mineralization in three localities proximal to the past-producing Bruvann Mine, the company said.
Meanwhile, West and down plunge of disseminated mineralisation remains open at Bruvann Mine, as indicated by historical drill results including 20.4 metres at 0.45% nickel, 18.3 metres at 0.48% nickel, 23 metres at 0.42% nickel and 11.4 metres at 0.67% nickel.
Drill testing of the targets is underway to investigate the potential for massive sulphide nickel-copper-cobalt mineralisation associated with the conductive bodies, the company said.
Looking ahead, an extension of the EM geophysical survey and downhole EM is expected to be conducted in late July 2023 to further define the targets and provide additional confidence in future drill targeting.
“The initial geophysical results at Bruvann are highly encouraging in demonstrating the presence of previously unidentified, strongly conductive bodies proximal to the mined-out mineralisation,” said Andrew Tunningley, Kingrose head of exploration.
“Our aim is to validate the geophysical interpretation with drilling and follow up detailed geophysics and work towards discovery of new zones of massive sulphide nickel-copper-cobalt mineralisation.”
Elsewhere, a ground-based magnetotelluric (MT) survey at the Rånbogen prospect and Mobile MT survey over the entire Råna intrusive complex have been completed and results will be interpreted over the coming weeks, the company said.
