Australian minerals exploration company Rox Resources has recorded the best visual intercept to-date at its Camelwood nickel sulphide prospect during RC drilling.

The drilling at hole MFEC014 returned 4m of massive and 4m of semi-massive sulphides included in 30m of mineralization from total drilled 144m, including 25m of disseminated sulphides.

Diamond drill hole MFED002, meanwhile, returned 16.3m at 1.8% nickel, with 6.3m at 2.5% nickel from 211.7m, including 0.47m at 5.4% nickel from 212m.

Finally, hole MFED003 that was further drilled 100m south of MFED002 returned 7.5m at 1.2% nickel, including 0.4m at 3.8% nickel from 178.3m.

Rox Resources managing director Ian Mulholland said: "This RC result is particularly pleasing being the thickest and most near-surface massive sulphide intersection to date"

The company has stated that it is currently continuing diamond drilling near holes MFED001 and 002 with plans to test the Camelwood North EM conductor located, 500m north of Camelwood.

"RC drilling is continuing on 50m infill sections along the 700m strike length of Camelwood, plus testing extensions to the north," it concluded adding that the results from holes MFED004 to 006 will be released by early April 2013.

Camelwood nickel sulphide prospect is located at Fisher East, 450km north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
