JOHANNESBURG (miningweekly.com) – Aim- and FSE-listed Bluejay Mining has increased its landholding in south-west Greenland, where it sees potential for mineralisation similar to that of the Norilsk-Talnakh nickel/copper sulphide mine, located in northern Russia.
Bluejay increased its land package for the Disko-Nuussauq magmatic massive sulphide (MMS) nickel/copper/platinum project by 200%, following the granting of additional exploration licences. The project now comprises 462.3 km2 and the licences are valid until December 2022.
Seven significant MMS targets have been identified to date at the licence area, with the largest being 5.9 km long by 1.1 km wide.
Bluejay has started a high-powered moving loop electromagnetic survey at Disko, which is expected to be completed in four weeks. The results are expected to identify locations for drilling.
"While early stage, the potential of Disko is unquestionable.
“Based on the work conducted at Disko to date, together with our understanding of the region, we believe there is significant discovery potential here and as such we have increased our land position accordingly,” says Bluejay CEO Roderick McIllree.
Alongside the exploration at Disko, Bluejay remains focused on starting production at its flagship Pituffik titanium project in 2018.
