Sienna Resources Inc announce it has approved an extended sampling and geophysical program on the Slattberg nickel-copper cobalt project in Sweden. Samples of stream sediments, soil and glacial till will be collected in areas where magnetic anomalies have been identified. These magnetic anomalies occur in areas where the highest historic stream sediment cobalt and nickel anomalies occur. The historic data was collected during 1970’s era sampling programs, but were never followed up on. The focus of the ongoing programs is to identify additional high priority drill targets for the Project.
Recently Sienna announce plans for a downhole EM survey on the property. The EM survey is an ideal exploration tool to utilize at the Slattberg project due to the highly conductive nature of the cobalt-nickel-copper mineralization. The intent of the EM surveys will be to identify conductive anomalies in the immediate vicinity of the drill holes that were not intercepted in the initial holes. This may generate a new series of prioritized drill targets for immediate follow-up, and will also help constrain the geometries of known bodies of mineralization on the project.
Mr Jason Gigliotti, President of Sienna states that “The initial results of the drill program were encouraging but further target definition is still ongoing. The current work programs should enable us to prioritize the next phase of drilling. We will focus the next phase on the highest cobalt centric locations as we are now able to work on these areas as the snow melt has now afforded us this ability. The EM surveys and new sampling work should provide multiple high priority drill targets, which we plan to test this summer. We look forward to a very active second half of 2018 as we still cash reserves to cover the plan work programs.”
