As at the end of Q3 2014, Newgenco Exploration (West Africa) Pty Ltd’s JV’s in West Africa with First Quantum Minerals reports that:

On the Dablo nickel-copper project in Burkina Faso (Newgenco Pty Ltd joint venture), results from five reconnaissance diamond drill holes have returned some encouraging results although the scale of the defined mineralization appears limited. The Company has now earned 51% of the project and is expected to take over management from Newgenco.


Finding new nickel camps in komatiite rocks

This presentation was given at the Kalgoorlie 2007 “Old ground. New knowledge” conference in Kagoorlie, Western Australia in September 2007.

Its focus is squarely on the targeting and identification from early mineralisation indicators of a new nickel camp.

Exploration implications for a new style of Ni-Cu-PGE mineralisation

My 2008 paper, ‘Palaeoproterozoic Ni–Cu–PGE mineralisation in the Shakespeare intrusion, Ontario, Canada: a new style of Nipissing gabbro-hosted mineralisation’, published in the Transactions of the IMM, describes a novel type of base metal-PGE mineralisation with significant economic implications.
