the forrestania mineral belt, a lenticular massive sulfide ore body of mainly pentlandite pyrrhotite, encompasses several deposits, including cosmic boy, flying fox, new morning, diggers rocks and diggers rocks south. the deposit is located about 130 km south of southern cross, wa.
Cosmos will be the catalyst for new nickel production in WA, particularly as Class 1 nickel sulphides in the battery and EV market is forecast to grow over the coming years. Since 2015, the Company has embarked on numerous exploration campaigns, including geophysics and drilling. The Cosmos Nickel Operation is located 30km north of Leinster.
At this juncture in the exploration work program, it is important to reflect onwhy Forrestania is an attractive region to be targeting nickel sulphide mineralisation. The ultramafic belts at Forrestania host some of the most attractive nickel sulphide deposits in Australia and possibly the world.
