The Project is situated within the Proterozoic Albany-Fraser Mobile Belt on the south-east margin of the Yilgarn Craton. The Belt hosts the Fraser Complex which is a series of layered mafic intrusions where recently a new nickel province has emerged following the discovery of the Nova-Bollinger deposits by Sirius Resources Ltd, just 23kms NNE of Supernova.
Very little exploration has been carried out to date on the tenement; however the Company recently commenced field work with a geochemical soils program targeting magmatic nickel sulphides. The east-west program comprised 150 samples with 100m spacing over 400m spaced lines. Samples were submitted to Quantum Analytical Laboratories in Welshpool for multi element analysis. Results revealed a multi element soil anomaly centred over the area of the quarry where intrusive mafic rocks outcrop. The program identified a positive area some 2km long and 300m wide with coincident Ni, Cu, Cr and Co that warrants additional investigation.
