  • Blackstone’s drill holes BP20-26, BP20-27 and BP20-28 are located within the centre of the KCZ where the Company continues to drill at depth;
  • The King Cobra discovery remains open down dip and along strike;
  • Blackstone continues with one diamond drill rig targeting down dip extensions of the KCZ and two diamond drill rigs testing massive sulfide vein (MSV) targets at Ban Chang;
  • Blackstone’s Scoping Study on downstream processing to produce nickel sulfate for the lithium-ion battery industry and a Ban Phuc maiden resource are on track for completion during Q3;

Blackstone Minerals’ Managing Director Scott Williamson commented:

“Drilling at our KCZ continues to deliver high-grade, shallow, disseminated nickel sulfide mineralisation. The broad intersections are proving up down-dip extensions to what looks like a very economic starter pit scenario at King Cobra.”

“We look forward to further shallow, high-grade results from King Cobra while we also continue to aggressively drill the exciting MSV targets such as Ban Chang to supplement the bulk tonnage opportunities from Ban Phuc and KCZ.”

Blackstone has completed initial resource drilling at Ban Phuc and placed two rigs on standby, however it continues its aggressive exploration program with one diamond drill rig targeting the down dip extents of the KCZ and two diamond drill rigs testing MSV targets throughout the Ta Khoa Nickel-Cu-PGE project, initially at the Ban Chang prospect.
