Helix Resources (ASX:HLX) is pleased to advise that a 600 line‐kilometre VTEM‐Max helicopter‐borne geophysical survey has been completed over the 25km of strike on the Collerina tenement. Helix controls an additional 60km of contiguous prospective VMS trend.
Helix had previously identified a series of targets along the trend from historic records, mapping and aeromagnetics. The VTEM‐Max survey has fast‐tracked Helix’s exploration program by identifying multiple late‐time EM conductors associated with these areas, as well as numerous brand new anomalies. The copper deposits in this region are known to form in clusters, as is evident in the Tritton‐Girilambone mining camp.
At the Collerina discovery, a late‐time EM anomaly has been identified adjacent to and immediately south‐east of previous drilling. This is coincident with surface copper anomalism and is considered a priority drill target.
Regional targets modelled from this survey will be followed‐up with detailed close‐spaced surface geochemistry sampling and prioritised for first‐pass drilling.
