Empire Resources (ASX:ERL) has discovered new outcrops of nickel and copper sulphide at Yuinmery, south Western Australia. Dubbed as the Constantine prospect, the ironstone outcrop has traces of anomalous nickel, copper, cobalt, platinum and palladium. It is about 350 meters in length and 48 meters in width.
The new outcrop discovery is located 6.5 km north east of the ‘Just Dessserts’ deposit which is part of Empire Resources’ Yuinmery copper gold project. The project is located 80 km south west of Sandstone in the province of Western Australia.
Managing Director of Empire Resources, David Sargeant has said that they have already planned a reverse circulation (RC) drilling program for this month. This would allow them to test various geochemical and geophysical targets in the La Mancha Resources Australia area and in the tenements owned solely by Empire Resources.
The Constantine prospect tenements currently are in an area where La Mancha Resources Australia and Giralia Resources have a joint venture in progress. Empire Resources has entered in to an agreement to acquire an interest in the 75.82% stake held by La Manch Resources in the joint venture.
