Broad areas of brecciated rock being bored boost Buxton's belief

BUXTON Resources has again flagged the big potential it sees at its Double Magic nickel and copper project in northern Western Australia, with recent drill results encouraging the company’s exploration team to believe they are “vectoring in on the source that is creating such vast, high grade and high tenor mineralisation”.

Buxton claims its drilling continues to highlight the project's big 'blue sky' potential.

Buxton's assessment is the intersection of brecciated massive sulphides within three separate conductors up to 1000m apart at the Merlin prospect mean the "highly prospective target area (has) grown substantially".

Buxton further said the conductors "remain open, unconstrained and plunging towards (the) gravity high" at Merlin.

Drilling is continuing.

Last year the company said the presence of brecciated sulphides "indicates forceful injection or re-working of sulphides in a high-energy magmatic environment, something usually considered an essential part of the processes involved in forming large, high-grade magmatic sulphide deposits".

Merlin is about 80km north east of Derby.
