Pele also announced that a Versatile Time-Domain Electro Magnetic ("VTEM") airborne survey has just been completed at its Timmins Nickel Project, which included the high priority target area along with substantial portions of the property that were not covered by previous HLEM
Nevsun has continued drilling at Harena on sections representing 100 meters step outs, primarily along strike of HLEM
and gravity anomalies.
Surface mineralization and a coincident HLEM
conductor indicate good continuity in the zone.
In 2004, work on the property included magnetic and HLEM
surveys and an extensive geochemical orientation survey (bark and twigs) on the Page Block and a portion of the Peterson.
Diamond drilling of a coincident gravity anomaly, HLEM
anomaly and gold in soil anomaly resulted in the first hole intersecting gossan mineralization from 33.
TEM (UTEM and Crone PEM), HLEM
and Magnetics ground geophysical programs have been completed at the Bucko Deposit and on priority areas of the Bowden Lake (Bowden and M11A Deposit, Bucko South Extension and North Limb Ultramafic) and Gonlin Lake properties and are in progress at the Halfway Lake, Resting Lake, Moak/Strong, Burntwood River and Airport properties.
Harena has coincident residual gravity, HLEM
and soil geochemical anomalies in association with a sub-cropping gossan.
survey identified numerous high priority electromagnetic ("EM") conductors throughout the claims.
