Sienna Resources has commenced a high resolution ground magnetic survey on the Slättberg cobalt-nickel-copper project in Sweden.
Slättberg’s sulfide mineralisation is known to be strongly magnetic, owing to its high concentrations of pyrrhotite, a magnetic ferrous sulfide mineral associated with the Co-Ni-Cu mineralisation. The new magnetic data will be used to potentially generate additional high priority drill targets on the project. Drilling is slated to commence in the coming weeks.
Field teams are currently deployed and are using a G-859 Geometrics Cesium Vapor Magnetometer paired with a G-856AX Proton Procession magnetometer as a base station. Approximately 50 – 100 survey lines of 500 meters in length are planned at 25 meter spacing. The current survey will cover the central portion of the trend of historic mine workings where the initial drill programme will be focused. Additional surveys will be conducted across other prioritised areas in the coming months.
Jason Gigliotti President of Sienna Resources stated: “We are pleased to have started up operations on the Slättberg cobalt-nickel-copper. We have recently closed an oversubscribed placement of US$2.5 million and we plan to deploy this cash strategically and immediately. We plan to be very active on this project and expect to be drilling in the coming weeks. The global demand on battery metals such as cobalt continues to strengthen and we are very optimistic about our 2018 work programs.”
