The search for Nickel Sulphides in the world of geoscientists is akin to the search for the Holy Grail. It would benefit investors to understand what is required to make a discovery in mineral exploration.

Brad Underwood, Chairman and Managing Director of Galileo Mining Limited (ASX:GAL) often visits Noel Ong, CEO of Samso to share some insights. The last time they spoke was almost two months ago and today Mr. Underwood brings in fresh perspectives on the mineral exploration industry.

In Coffee with Samso Episode 87, they chat about what it takes, step-by-step, in the company's methodical exploration for nickel sulphide.

We also hear about the different types of surveys (magnetic, electromagnetic, geophysical) as well as the thinking and science behind the new Palladium target in Norseman. Today's conversation is chockful of information and insights. We have got our notepads ready for juicy nuggets.

What gets Noel Ong sitting up when he looks at the variety of companies out there is the quality of their management. And for him, Galileo Mining Limited has got quality management which will keep them steady and going through the good and bad.


“Our ongoing review of the Norseman Project has delivered results with the recognition of the outstanding prospectivity for palladium in the region. The existing drill results demonstrate the quality of the project and have provided the basis for a new understanding of the mineralising processes. This has led to the development of robust drill targets with the potential for a significant palladium discovery. We will be aggressively pursuing this exceptional opportunity in conjunction with our search for nickel sulphide deposits at the Fraser Range which includes upcoming diamond drilling at the Delta Blues prospect.”
