Surefire extends Unaly Hill vanadium mineralisation

Date: Oct 9, 2018

Vanadium explorer Surefire Resources’ recent drilling campaign has demonstrated that the mineralisation at the Unaly Hill project, near Sandstone in the Murchison region of WA, extends for several kilometres along strike.

All 10 reverse circulation holes in the campaign intersected a number of vanadiferous magnetite bands of varying down-hole widths.

This campaign, which is the first phase of a new drill program at Unaly Hill, was designed to test additional magnetic anomalies identified along strike of the company’s previous drilling.

Data from the drilling will provide additional information for the mineral resource within the licence area.

All RC samples are currently awaiting assays in Perth.

Last month, Surefire completed a single, deep, large diameter diamond drill hole targeting the three main bands of vanadium-rich titanomagnetite mineralisation at the project.

The drill core was obtained primarily for metallurgical test work with the deepest ore horizon returning a serious looking 50.8 metre zone grading 0.55% vanadium pentoxide from 298.2m downhole including a very impressive 9m high-grade section @ 0.89% vanadium pentoxide from 306m.

The two shallower ore horizons were impressive in their own right, returning 40.5m @ 0.36% vanadium pentoxide from 108.65m down-hole and 69.5m @ 0.42% vanadium pentoxide from 182.5m down hole.

All three ore zones contain significant quantities of titanium oxide and iron, which can potentially be recovered into a magnetic concentrate and sold in their own right.
