Immediate exploration targets – Ghanzi West Group
- Preliminary exploration identified potential bedrock sulphide targets.
- Airborne EM survey identified ‘domal’ target at GWD1.
- Two soil anomalies delineated, each approx. 10km in strike length.
- Historical drill holes intercepted pyrite.
- Two interpreted domal structures as yet untested.
The Ghanzi West Project comprises nine prospecting licenses over a 6060.2km2 area, approximately 22km south west of Ghanzi and approximately 670km north west of the Republic of Botswana capital city Gaborone.
Access to the Ghanzi West Project from the north east is via the Ghanzi/Maun Highway and transected by the Trans Kalahari Highway, connecting Windhoek, Republic of Namibia (530km east south east of Ghanzi) to Ghanzi.
Metallum completes Global Exploration Technologies (GET) acquisition and its Botswana project portfolio.
The Ghanzi West Project has been largely unexplored, with a previous explorer conducting a soil sampling program defining two 10km soil anomalies (GW1 and GW2). Upon granting of the licences, Kopore conducted a ground magnetic and electromagnetic survey defining potential bedrock conductors across both soil anomalies.
GW3 and GWD2.
- GW3 Prospect – Three copper/zinc soil anomalies have been identified across interpreted geological contacts, interpreted to cover a historically mapped thin dolomitic limestone bands interbedded with siltstones and sandstones.
- GWD2 Prospect – Three copper/zinc soil anomalies have been identified across the interpreted northern limb of the GWD2 dome prospect.
November 2017 – December 2017
Airborne Magnetic and EM (AEM) survey field activity. Kopore engaged South African based NRG Geophysics to conduct a 1,091km2 magnetic and EM survey over the GWD1 target, seeking to confirm the presence of potential D’Kar Formation, provide potential indications of geological structure.
Kopore’s technical team secured a historical airborne magnetic survey raw data file, which has been reprocessed by Perth based Geophysicist Mr Kim Frankcombe. This information has allowed the Company to refine its targeting and demonstrate the presence of the D’Kar Formation at the GWD1 Prospect. The D’Kar Formation is known to host the copper-silver mineralisation across the Kalahari Copper Belt.
February – March 2018
The final interpretation of the AEM has been completed with the interpretation of eight strong EM conductor zones upto 10km in strike length and from 50m below surface (Table 1). Interpreted geometry include potential anticlinal (KM1 Target), Synclinal (KM2 and KM3 Targets) and Fold Limb (KM5 to KM8 Targets).
Kopore commenced its initial soil sampling program over the higher priority KM1 and KM3 targets, before the commencement in April 2018 of ground EM surveys across the selected targets.
Exploration Program and Upside
Kopore will continue its aggressive exploration program in 2018, seeking to delineate potential copper/silver mineralisation from its current and future exploration targets. Kopore believes its projects are closer to surface than previously interpreted and will be conducting the following activities:
- Soil Sampling Programs
- Ground EM Surveys
- Continued Ground Reconnaissance
- Airborne EM Surveys and
- RC and Diamond Drilling Programs.
