Blackstone Minerals begins exploration at new high-grade nickel-copper-PGE target of Ta Khoa project
Proactiveinvestors - The company is targeting MSV prospects analogous to the previously mined Ban Phuc MSV, where previous owners mined 975,000 tonnes from an average vein width of 1.3 metres and average grades of 2.4% nickel and 1% copper.
Blackstone Minerals Ltd (ASX:BSX) has begun exploration at Ta Cuong, its second massive sulphide vein (MSV) prospect at the Ta Khoa Nickel-Copper-Platinum Group Elements (PGE) Project in northern Vietnam.
After completing a highly successful geophysics program at Ban Chang, Blackstone’s geophysics crew has mobilised to the newly generated Ta Cuong target associated with the highly prospective Ban Khang ultramafic intrusion.
Ta Cuong is 6 kilometres along strike from Ban Chang and proximal to a major regional structure that is also close to the Ban Phuc and Ban Chang prospects.
