The hits included 24m grading 0.28% cobalt and 1.52% nickel from surface and 38m at 0.31% cobalt and 1.32% nickel from surface.
Metals X drilled six of 15 potential pits over a 10km extent at Wingellina.
The metallurgical results are “pending”.
The work comes as Metals X looks at smaller options for developing the project, dubbed one of the largest undeveloped nickel-cobalt deposits on the planet.
The rise and rise of the cobalt price and the potential for strong demand for both it and higher value nickel sulphate – from the burgeoning battery sector – has potentially opened the door on lower cost development opportunities at Wingellina than the originally conceived large...
