Galileo Mining Ltd (ASX: GAL) has commenced RC drilling targeting three separate prospects at the company’s 100% owned Norseman project in Western Australia.

 Drilling at our Norseman project has commenced as we follow up target generation work with the all-important drill testing. We have three advanced prospects ready for drilling and each has a chance of delivering significant results,” Managing Director, Brad Underwood, said.

“Our exploration strategy follows a cyclical pattern with campaign drilling, review and interpretation of results, integration of new information, and then follow up drilling. We believe this cycle of exploration activity gives us the best opportunity of making further discoveries.

“We look forward to the results of the current round of drilling as we seek to unlock the potential of a newly discovered mineral district.”

North Callisto Prospect:

First pass drilling of the North Callisto prospect was undertaken in September 2023. Drill assays from the September programme showed an anomalous result of 28m @ 0.18 g/t 3E in drill hole NRC472. Review of this drill hole shows that the anomalous intersection occurs at the base of an ultramafic sill where it overlies a volcanic substrate. This geological configuration is interpreted as being analogous to the Callisto deposit where the mineralised intrusive sill overlies a volcano-sedimentary sequence.

The zone along strike of NRC472 will be initially tested with two drill holes while the prospect area is subject to ongoing IP surveying aimed at identifying large accumulations of sulphide mineralisation.

Jimberlana South Prospect:

The Jimberlana Prospect is an east-west trending ultramafic-mafic dyke with sulphides developed on the northern and southern margins. Drilling by Galileo has intersected wide zones of anomalous PGE-nickel- copper sulphide at the Jimberlana South prospect at the juncture between mafic and ultramafic rock units in contact with the host country rock.

Three follow up drill holes are planned in the current programme.
