PERTH ( – Junior Neometals has reported a 30% increase in the mineral resource at the Gillett deposit, at its Mt Edwards nickel project, in Western Australia.

The Gillett deposit is now estimated to host some 1.3-million tonnes, at 1.7% nickel for 22 500 t of contained nickel.

Neometals on Tuesday said that scope to further grow Gillett has driven a future work programme that would include reverse circulation and diamond core drilling to further test the extent of the mineralisation, and infill drilling to increase confidence sufficient to upgrade the mineral resource classification.

Diamond core drilling and sampling will be used to further improve the understanding of the mineralogy and metallurgical characteristics to pave the way for advanced mining studies.
