Announcement summary: Auroch Minerals Limited (ASX:AOU) (Auroch or the Company) is pleased to announce an update on exploration activities at the Nepean Project in Western Australia (Auroch Minerals 80%). The second drill-hole into the Nepean Deeps target area, NPDD013, successfully intersected 12.5m of disseminated and matrix to semi-massive nickel sulphides from 576.8m (Photographs 1 and 2; Table 1), within a 76.15m intersection of ultramafics from 534.65 – 610.80m down-hole, which is interpreted to be the underexplored Sill 1 ultramafic directly west of the mine sequence (Figure 1). The nickeliferous sulphides were intersected just below the down-hole electromagnetic (DHEM) conductor 1A/1B, and are interpreted to be the cause of the DHEM conductor, the uppermost of three DHEM targets identified by the first Nepean Deeps drill-hole NPDD008 (Figure 1). The intersected sulphides are pyrrhotite dominant, with both pentlandite (nickel sulphide) and chalcopyrite (copper sulphide) observed in the semi-massive to matrix sulphides. The core is currently being cut and sampled for priority assay submission.
