Symons Hill

Symons Hill- Fraser Range


Tenement covers 96km2, 6kms SSW of Independence Group’s (ASX:IGO) Nova Nickel Mine.


Symons Hill on Regional Aeromagnetic Image


Exploration to date; regional soil sampling, high resolution, aeromagnetics, gravity, ground electromagnetics, aircore, RC and diamond drilling.



Geochemical and EM Targets

>1% Ni in weathered olivine gabbro at SHG02, SHG03. Typical intercepts include:

  • SHG03, 13m @ 1.52% Ni, 0.012% Cu, 0.035% Co (SHAC591)
  • SHG02, 3m @ 0.98% Ni, 0.005% Cu and 0.12% Co from 21m (SHAC040)

RC drilling confirmed strongly enriched Ni values in fresh olivine-bearing gabbro which is interpreted to form part of a regionally extensive complexly folded stratabound metagabbro unit.


Regional, high powered (150-200A) EM survey was completed. 


Survey carried out as part of a research and development project, designed to develop and improve EM equipment and techniques to explore for massive sulphide deposits to a depth of >700m below surface.


Tenement wide EM survey completed based on 800m x 1200m loops.


HPMLEM identifies sulphides (Iron Sulphide) at Targets C56 and VA11.


Conductor C56


Collaborative Research Project with CSIRO

Collaborative research project jointly funded by Matsa and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organisation (CSIRO). 

Project is intended to integrate geochemical data, drilling data and airborne and ground geophysical data to provide a more complete understanding of geological processes in this deeply weathered terrain.

Aims to improve techniques to explore for Nova style NiCu massive sulphide deposits.
