ASX-listed explorer, Venus Metals Corporation, says it has picked up a couple of early polymetallic sniffs at its Bridgetown East nickel-copper-PGE project in WA’s south-west region as the company looks to emulate the feats of Chalice Mining following its exciting Gonneville nickel-copper-PGE discovery at the Julimar project further north.

Recent reconnaissance surface sampling done by Perth-based Venus encountered platinum-palladium-copper anomalies in laterite, which together with historical data point to what the company says are high-priority targets in mafic‐ultramafic rocks prospective for potential nickel‐copper‐PGE mineralisation.

Venus now plans to undertake further surface sampling and detailed ground electromagnetic surveying work across several geochemical targets and previously identified airborne electromagnetic anomalies. A subsequent round of drilling is proposed.
