Venus Metals has nailed a broad platinum group element drill intercept at its Youanmi PGE and base metals project in the Murchison district of Western Australia, with a 30m hit grading 0.95 grams per tonne combined platinum, palladium and gold, 0.22 per cent copper and 0.24 per cent nickel from 40m depth. The intersection extended mineralisation some 50m west of a previous thick intercept.

The new broad hit at the company’s 90 per cent owned Vidure prospect also featured two higher-tenor intervals of 11m going 1.12 g/t platinum, palladium and gold, 0.18 per cent copper and 0.26 per cent nickel from 52m, in addition to 3m at 1.64 g/t platinum, palladium and gold, 0.32 per cent copper and 0.42 per cent nickel from 66m.

Venus says the PGE mineralisation remains open along strike and at depth.
