So far 944 metres have been drilled of a planned 10,000-metre programme at Songwe Hill.

The drilling programme is a key component of the ongoing Feasibility Study for Songwe. 

“These are an excellent first set of results from the current programme and we look forward to announcing results from the remaining approximately 75 drill holes as they become available,” said chief executive William Dawes.

“The drill programme and planned resource update are fully funded following investments by Talaxis Limited totalling £6 million in January 2018. Talaxis will invest a further £7 million to fund completion of the feasibility study for Songwe on Mkango publishing an NI 43-101 technical report in relation to the resource update."
