Widgie has appointed Kalgoorlie-based Challenge Drilling Limited for its Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program. The Company’s initial focus will be in the Widgie South area, located on the northeast margin of the Widgiemooltha Dome (Figure 1), host to the Widgie Townsite, Widgie 3 and Gillett Mineral Resources. The initial program targets extensional opportunities at Gillett, to both the Mineral Resource and to recently identified new basal contact targets. As detailed further in this announcement, Widgie has identified that the Gillett West contact, adjacent to the Widgie 3 and Gillett mineral resources, has potential to host repetitions of similar mineralisation. Widgie has 20 holes planned for a total of 6,115 metres in this area. Managing Director Steve Norregaard commented “In Gillett West, we are very excited to have potentially identified another zone of mineralisation in such close proximity to existing Mineral Resources. With only a small number of historical holes identified on Gillett West, covering 250m of strike at shallow depths, I look forward to the results we can deliver with the Company’s maiden drilling campaign.” “Widgie was formed with the aim to be production ready by the end of 2023. This drilling campaign is a significant contributor to that aim, by looking to both increase the size and confidence of our existing resources and to seek additional discoveries which will allow us to fully realise the potential of the Widgie South area.” The Gillett deposit was discovered relatively recently (2006) and sits at the basal contact of a komatiitic ultramafic unit, which overlies a basaltic mafic unit. At Gillett, the basal contact trends to the northwest, dipping steeply to the southwest and is interpreted to be a folded repetition of the same basal contact which hosts the previously mined Widgie 3 deposit located approximately 300m to the southwest (Figure 2).

Diamond drilling is scheduled to commence in January 2022. Figure 3: Long section of Gillett looking southwest, showing historical drill intercepts and drillholes planned in the first phase of drilling What is particularly exciting for Widgie Nickel is that the folding of the strata into an interpreted syncline-anticline pair has resulted in a third prospective surface, the Gillett West structure (Figure 4). Gillett West is situated approximately 150m northeast of and parallel to Widgie 3 and approximately 200m southwest of Gillett and parallel from drill intercepts to date.

Potential along strike and at depth remain high. Figure 5: Long section of Gillett West looking southwest The initial focus is on the Gillett deposit with the bonus that a number of drillholes in this first phase of drilling will also pass through the Gillett West basal contact, the full potential of Gillett West will be tested in subsequent programs. The drilling also aims to gather geotechnical data for the three deposits assisting with future mine design and planning, assist with developing a better understanding of the geological controls on mineralisation and allow a period for refining drilling techniques/design to ensure accuracy prior to infilling the Gillett resource to improve geological confidence levels. At the completion of drilling, selected drillholes will be cased to allow completion of a downhole electromagnetic (DHEM) program providing guidance in further extensional drilling. Subsequent programs planned for early in 2022 which will focus on infill drilling at Gillett, Widgie Townsite and Widgie 3 with a view to updating the Mineral Resources in the second half of CY22 in line with our proposed development strategy. Importantly, Gillett and Gillett West further demonstrate the very high prospectivity of the district even at very local scale, proximal to previously known or mined deposits.
