Concordia Copper Project Update  


Galileo (AIM:GLR) is pleased to provide a further update now that it has completed its initial drilling programme  on its Concordia Copper project  in the northwest of Northern Cape Province of South Africa.




·     Approximately 60% of assay results received from recently completed drilling programme


·     Results undergoing Quality Assurance – Quality Control (QA-QC) checks 


·     Assaying of remaining samples on hold pending the outcome of QA-QC checks


·     Ongoing review of historical data identifies different grid coordinate systems have been used for   historical and current drilling databases.


·     Geological consultants transforming all drill coordinate data to a common (current) coordinate system      


·     Review of historical airborne magnetic geophysics data in conjunction Company’s current IP geophysics indicates magnetic geophysics as potential complementary tool to IP geophysics 


·     Ground magnetometer survey undertaken over drilled Shirley Trend to complement and or reconcile with its IP geophysics data


·     Decision on election to continue development and issue of 30 million shares to Shirley Hayes extended to 31 July 2017 



Colin Bird CEO said:   “Our drilling performance and the ground conditions for drilling were better than expected, which led to Galileo deciding to drill more than twice the number of holes than planned.  The Company’s concurrent on-going evaluation of historical maps and plans revealed that these often were drawn using different base grid coordinate systems and to that currently used. The Company has decided to put all the data onto a common coordinate grid system: work still in progress.  Our geological consultant Minxcon continues with modelling the raw data, the aim of which includes testing the drilling against the IP geophysics anomalies identified earlier and incorporating new ground magnetic survey data.  On completion of these activities, which are taking longer than scheduled (now target for end July), we will be able to develop, if appropriate, a drilling programme towards resource definition.”
