Buxton Resources Limited (ASX:BUX) is pleased to provide an update for its 100% owned nickel-copper-cobalt projects (including flagship Merlin prospect, Double Magic Project) in the West Kimberley region of Western Australia (see Figure 4 at the end of this document for locations).
A definitive end to the 2017/18 Wet season has enabled light vehicle access to Merlin seven weeks earlier than in 2017. The MLTEM field crew arrived on-site late last week, with data acquisition now well underway. The gravity survey crew will arrive in the next few days.
BUXON Resources has called its recent drillhole, DMDD0014 as the most important every drilled in Western Australia’s remote West Kimberley, confirming that the region is a “fertile and un-explored new nickel-copper-cobalt” province.
