New Project for 2021
The Company received four 3-year Prospecting Licences (PL) (PL001-004/2021) starting 1 July 2021. The work programme agreed to with the Department of Mines requires exploration during the two years that leads to drilling during year 3. Providing the work programme is fulfilled, The Company may renew the licences for two additional 2-year terms.
Historical work with in PL included drilling. Our research has uncovered reports of anomalous nickel-in-soil. These results are historic and were not verified by the Company.
Presently, full airborne geophysical coverage is available and our exploration plans include re-processing of these data for geological interpretation and target identification. The historic drill cores may also be available at one or more of the high quality core storage facilities operated by the Botswana Geological Institute (BGI). These may be investigated and possibly re-sampled as part of the initial programme.
