Drilling to Commence at Osborne Nickel Target


Artemis Resources Limited (ASX:ARV AIM:ARV, Frankfurt: ATY, US OTCQB: ARTTF) is pleased to announce that the maiden drill program to test the highly prospective Osborne Nickel Sulphide target, a joint venture project owned 100% by Artemis Resources with GreenTech Metals Ltd (ASX:GRE) earning up to 51% (the "Joint Venture"), is underway. Identified by Legend Mining in 2007 as a key nickel (and copper) target, the Osborne target was not followed up due to land access issues. Having received the final report for the recent heritage clearance survey, the Joint Venture has planned the initial drill program of up to 6 RC drill holes (~1,000 metres in total) to test Osborne.




·   Maiden RC drill program underway at the Osborne Nickel Sulphide target following recent heritage clearance.


· Osborne sits within the Andover Mafic-Ultramafic Intrusive Complex, which is host to the Andover Ni-Cu-Co project held by Azure Minerals Ltd / Creasy Group, 20km to the east.


· Azure Minerals recently announced a maiden JORC compliant resource at Andover of 4.6Mt @ 1.11% Ni, 0.47% Cu and 0.05% Co.


· The Osborne Nickel target is modelled by Fixed Loop Electromagnetic (FLEM) as dipping 30 - 45 deg to the north with the top of the target at a depth of around 155 -175m (Figure 1).


· Joint Venture partners Artemis and GreenTech Metals Ltd have planned a two-stage program to test the Osborne Nickel target (Figure 2). The stage one program will comprise up to 3 RC drill holes for a total 750m and aimed at testing the shallowest portion of the target.

The Osborne Nickel target, which is located 5km northeast of the Sholl B1 nickel-copper deposit and 20km from Azure's Andover project, is a discrete VTEM anomaly that coincides with the contact between mafic and ultramafic intrusions of the Andover Intrusive Complex (Figure 3).  The target is modelled as dipping 30 - 45 deg to the north with the top of the target at a depth of around 155 -175m.
