Unlocking the magic of a new Nickel-Copper Province
Buxton Resources (BUX) first commenced exploration in the West Kimberley region of WA in 2015, following the identification of prospective mafic intrusive rocks and reports of nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation in historical drilling. Early drill success followed, with massive, net-textured and disseminated nickel-copper sulphides confirmed over the project area in the Company’s very first drill campaign.
In the next two field seasons, BUX added to the technical merits of the project, confirming the right age and type of intrusives (Proterozoic), geological setting (Craton margin), geochemistry (fertile host rocks), and mineralisation (high nickel tenor) to tick the boxes for a significant nickel-copper deposit. The Company now needs to tick the final box and prove economic accumulations of nickel-copper sulphides are present within the large magmatic system.
