Concordia Copper Project - Drill Results Update

Galileo (AIM:GLR) is pleased to announce the preliminary results of the initial 14-hole drilling programme on its Concordia project ("the "Project"), completion of which was announced on 15 May 2017.


-- The Company announces preliminary results of the completed 14-hole 2,170 metre initial drilling programme

-- The targeting contribution of induced polarity (IP) geophysics to this deposit did not prove precise enough for the purpose of testing the technology as a means for directing future exploration

-- Copper sulphide mineralisations were intersected more consistently in dill holes targeted by traditional exploration methodology

-- Drilling of basic rock bodies identified by outcrop, limited ground magnetic survey and previous aeromagnetic survey data intersected encouraging potentially mineable near-surface copper mineralisation with good grade

-- Best holes, GSPD 008 011 and 014 in basic diorite outcrop, intersected respectively, 6 metres (m) from 23m to 29m downhole assaying 0.90% Cu; 10m, from 28m to 38m, assaying 0.85% Cu; and 8m, from 3 m to 11m assaying 1.06%Cu

-- Assessment of the results continues in order better to understand the geology and the structural controls governing mineralisation

-- Decision to turn the project to account for the benefit of the JV parties and to increase the Company's interest in the Project by way of issue of Galileo ordinary shares to JV partner is pending the outcome of this continuing assessment and results from intended completion of the programme with the remaining committed funds

-- JV partner, SHIP claims the Company should dilute to 15% interest in terms of the Cooperation and Joint Venture Agreement ("Agreement"). This claim is not supported by the Agreement given that no decision has been made by the Company to turn the project to account .

Colin Bird CEO said: "The purpose of this drilling programme was primarily to test IP as a tool in detecting sulphide bodies on Concordia. Unfortunately, it became apparent during the programme that that IP was less effective than traditional methods employed in the area. The Company, along with SHIP, therefore decided to direct the balance of the drilling using traditional exploration including visible geology, basic rock outcrops and magnetic geophysics. The results tabulated below are promising and well worth pursuing. At a previous strategic discussion with SHIP, it was decided to continue to drill a number of holes to test for continuity and extension of mineralisation and this we intend to do. After final expenditure of the balance of committed funds and full assessment of results thereafter we will advise SHIP of our future level of interest."

Project Background

Following a strategic joint review of Minxcon Consulting (Pty) Ltd's ('Minxcon') independent assessment of exploration potential on 34 possible prospects on the Concordia Project, and their ranking in terms of prospectivity, the Company prioritised four main areas: the Homeep Trend, the Shirley Trend (including the Klondike Prospect) and the Henderson Prospect area for exploration activities, commencing with an Induced Polarity (IP) geophysical survey.

The modelling of Homeep East (announced 7 September 2016), a small part of the Homeep Trend of prospects, indicated the potential over a very small portion of strike of the overall Trend estimated at 942,435 tonnes grading 0.89% Cu at 0.2% Cu cut-off, thereby confirming the expected high grade of the Homeep prospect.

The Shirley Trend, the on Concordia was selected for its long 7km-strike length, the occurrence of sporadic historic high copper values and a few clusters of historic drilling positions but for which the drilling data are missing.

In September 2016, the Company commissioned GeoSpec Instruments (Pty) Ltd to execute a 3-phase induced polarisation (IP) geophysics survey on Concordia: 1(st) Phase -the Homeep Trend ; 2(nd) Phase - the Homeep/Shirley Trend and 3(rd) Phase - Shirley Trend and Henderson/Klondike prospects) and mandated Minxcon to manage the data base integration of the survey. The geophysics filed work survey was completed in November 2016. 3D (three-dimension) modelling of the IP data identified bodies (zones) with high chargeability - up to 12 mV/V - in contiguous sections across both Homeep and Shirley Trends.

Galileo commenced drilling, in March 2017. The programme comprised initially of up to six RC holes down to 300 m depths. The objective of the drilling programme focused principally to test the reliability and usefulness of geophysics anomalism in identifying copper mineralisation targets.

Galileo to date has committed 100% of the funds required for a 51% earn-in to Concordia in terms of the Cooperation and Joint Venture Agreement with Shirley Hayes IPK.

The Department of Mineral Resources granted a renewal, for three years to 17 August 2019, of the Prospecting Right (PR) on Concordia to SHIP Pty Ltd, the holder of the PR and the Company's partner in the project.
