UK's African Eagle Resources plc has announced the discovery of early nickel assay on the basis of results from drilling at its Dutwa gold and base metals project in Mwanza Region.

The company said yesterday in a statement that it is conducting a programme of vertical reverse circulation drilling at Dutwa to investigate a promising 2.5 km-long nickel anomaly from last year's geochemical soil sampling programme.

Seven of the first ten drill holes yielded high nickel values from a considerable thickness of laterite within the top 50m.
