Nelson Resources to begin geophysics survey at Woodline Project

Nelson Resources Ltd (ASX:NES) will begin a geophysics survey at its Woodline Project in the Fraser Range, Western Australia on August 17 2020.

The company is planning to conduct around 750 line kilometres of ultra-high-resolution ground magnetics on a 25-metre line spacing.

Nelson will also conduct a passive seismic survey to map cover for the same area.

The company plans to begin drilling in the next six to eight weeks subject to drill rig availability.

Next phase of exploration


Nelson Resources executive director Adam Schofield said: “This is a significant milestone for the company, after spending the past 18 months consolidating the Woodline tenure which already hosts a significant 20km gold geochemical and bedrock anomaly.

“We are now embarking on the next phase of exploration in potentially discovering the next Tropicana.”

Tropicana-style deposit


Nelson has five wholly-owned projects – Woodline, Tempest, Fortnum, Yarri and Wilga Well – in Western Australia across 956 square kilometres.

But the companys key focus is its 828 square kilometres Woodline Project, which is on the boundary of the Albany Fraser Oregon and the Norseman-Wiluna Greenstone belt.
