Quarterly Activities Report
Brisbane, July 31, 2015 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Axiom Mining Limited (ASX:AVQ) had excellent results from the drilling program during the quarter. The company recorded a total of 129 holes with an aggregate of 2236m using one drilling rig, and consistently intercepted high grade nickel mineralisation especially at the prospect areas of Havihua and Kolosori Ridges. The company looks forward to delivering more encouraging results with six drilling rigs during the next stage of exploration - resource definition drilling. This drilling program is well on its way to determining a resource sufficient to support the first two to five years of our planned direct shipping of ore (DSO) operation.
