Rox Resources Limited (ASX: RXL) (“Rox” or “the Company”) is pleased to report the first assay results from diamond drilling at the Musket prospect, part of the Fisher East nickel sulphide project 500km north of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

The first diamond drill hole, MFED042, targeted 35m down dip from previous RC hole MFEC065 (17m @ 2.2% Ni, including 2m @ 8.1% Ni), intersected a thick zone of nickel sulphide mineralisation grading 15.0m @ 2.7% Ni, including 0.9m @ 19.5% Ni of massive sulphide from 264.7m downhole. Estimated true width is approximately 10m.

The second diamond drill hole in the program, MFED043, intersected similar mineralisation style and thickness, 85m down dip from RC hole MFEC065 and 50m down dip from diamond drill hole MFEC042 (Figures 1 – 3), with assays pending.
