Dual-listed Bluejay Mining has identified more than 20 large-scale drill-ready targets on licence holdings at its Disko-Nuussuaq magmatic massive sulphide (MMS) nickel/copper/platinum project in West Greenland.

The licence holdings have recently expanded from 2 556 km2 to 2 776 km2 following further exploration.

The 2019 work programme was designed to refine both new and previously defined drill targets by reprocessing and validating historical data; and acquiring new geophysical and geochemical data.

The licence area aerial survey used AustinBridgeporth’s Lockheed Martin developed Enhanced Full Tensor Gradiometer Gravity (eFTG) technology.

Work to augment geological understanding of Disko included reprocessing original Titan 24 survey data from six survey areas; magnetic, photogrammetric and hyperspectral imaging surveys; spatiotemporal geochemical Hydrocarbon (SGH) surveys; mobile metal ions (MMI) surveys; and geological field work.

A recently undertaken site identified significant and multiple nickel/copper gossans in the licence area.

Multiple occurrences of nickel and copper sulphide bearing boulders were identified throughout the licence holdings.

“Disko’s work programme for 2019 will refine and validate all defined drill targets through a combination of modern reprocessing techniques and the acquisition of new geophysical and geochemical data, including the exciting eFTG survey,” the company said.

“Significantly for Bluejay, confidence in the Disko-Nuussuaq region hosting a large nickel/copper district, analogous to the Norilsk District in Siberia, increases with every newly acquired piece of data.

“The 2019 field programme at Disko will lay the groundwork to refine our more than 20 drill targets and will hopefully ultimately make a major discovery for our shareholders,” it added.
