Kavango Resources plc (LSE:KAV), the exploration company targeting the discovery of world-class mineral deposits in Botswana, is pleased to announce that the Company has requested Mindea Exploration and Drilling Services (Pty) to extend Hole TA2DD002 to 1,000m depth, which is the technical limit of the drill rig on site within acceptable safety margins, to assist in further developing and refining the Company’s model of the KSZ.
At end of shift at 0500 today, 17 September, Hole TA2DD002 was at 821m. So far the Company has encountered 170m of continuous Proterozoic mafic/ultramafic rocks. Kavango’s senior field geologists have continued to make visual inspection of the core and have reported visible alteration and interstitial blebs of chalcopyrite in different sections of the hole. The lithologies range from coarse grained to extremely pegmatitic, the latter logged in zones that extend 20-30m in thickness.
The Company advises shareholders that thorough analysis is required of all core samples retrieved from the Proterozoic Complex in Hole TA2DD002, before any conclusions can be drawn as to what has been encountered so far. This analysis will include (but not necessarily be limited to) assay testing and whole rock analysis.
The Company will make further updates as necessary.
