The T3 copper project in Botswana currently being worked in a joint venture between MOD Resources (ASX:MOD) and Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has secured a further environmental approval for drilling to the north of the mineralisation.
Approval has also been granted for the construction of an accommodation camp outside Ghanzi.
And meanwhile, the broader Environmental Impact Assessment for the planned T3 mine is now underway.
All of which means that work for the pre-feasibility, which has been ongoing for some time, will shortly be complete.
“We are delighted to report a number of important approvals which will allow the scope of the T3 project to broaden significantly,” said Michael McNeilly, chief executive Metal Tiger.
“We are particularly pleased that the T3 extension drilling application has been approved, allowing the JV to test the geophysics targets to the north of the T3 Deposit and effectively doubling the area of ground we are permitted to diamond drill.”
