Louis Coetzee, executive chairman, said the LiDAR survey would add integrity and confidence to the ongoing pre-feasibility study (PFS).
“Thanks to completing previous milestones at Imweru ahead of schedule, we can deliver this supplementary survey without compromising the timeline for the PFS and at no additional cash cost.”
The airborne LiDAR survey will cost US$14,000 (to be paid in shares) and create a highly accurate data set over the entire envisaged Imweru mining area.
LiDAR works by illuminating a target with a pulsed laser light and measuring the reflected pulses with a sensor.
