Dynamic study beefs up nickel grades at Goldfields prospect

Geochemical analysis on 1m split samples from drilling at Dynamic Metals’ Dordie Far West prospect in Western Australia’s Goldfields has revealed a solid bump in nickel grades, including a 5m hit at an impressive 2.84 per cent nickel from 30m.

The significant 5m section is housed within a 16m intercept going 1.96 per cent nickel from only 27m, with further analysis also showing a 15m segment at 1.56 per cent nickel from 48m, including 3m at 2.06 per cent nickel from 50m and 1m grading 2.71 per cent nickel from 50m.

The same hole also recorded a shallower 6m hit at 1.6 per cent nickel from 29m, including a 1m section going 2.07 per cent nickel from 29m.

The company previously announced the results of its five-hole RC program, which tested Dordie Far West near Kambalda using analysis of 3m samples. That data showed corresponding results of 15m at 1.86 per cent nickel from 27m, 15m grading 1.11 per cent nickel from 30m and then another 12m hit further down the same hole going 1.58 per cent nickel from 48m.

While the width of the intercepts remains the same, the 1m analysis has seen a significant jump in grade that the company will use to confirm a nickel mineralisation model and determine targets for a follow-up drill program.

Dordie Far West sits on the north-west margin of the Widgiemooltha dome, where RC drilling by Mincor Resources in the late 2000s gave encouraging results up to an impressive 10.7 per cent nickel, 3.1 per cent copper and 0.3 cobalt from 45m and 16m at 1.1 per cent nickel from 20m.

Dynamic says the thick widths and high-grade tenor intersected in its drilling program compare favourably with the historic results, confirming and enhancing the potential for significant mineralisation along the trend.

The prospect is part of the broader Widgiemooltha project in WA’s Goldfields region, some 40km south of Kambalda. Surrounding nickel sulphide mines have a strong pedigree and include Cassini, Wannaway, Mariners, Miitel and Lanfranchi.

The company already has plans in place for a two-hole RC program in the southern area of Dordie Far West, with drilling expected to be completed this quarter.

Dynamic has also wrapped up a 6000m air-core program across its Lake Percy project near Norseman, where it tested for new nickel and lithium targets. Management says the samples will also assist in the assessment of the lithium-caesium-tantalum potential of the operation by providing further information on the nature and extent of pegmatites in the region for a follow-up RC and diamond drill campaign.

Located about 60km east of the Mt Holland lithium project, Lake Percy covers an area of about 200 square kilometres and sits along the Lake Johnston Greenstone Belt. Dynamic says it has identified spodumene-bearing pegmatites around 20km south of the site’s Mt Day prospect, in addition to anomalous lithium intersected in historic drilling.
