T3 is already known to contain a significant copper resource

A second phase of drilling undertaken by MOD Resources, the company which holds the T3 copper project in Botswana in the joint venture with Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has returned positive results.

Among the latest intersections from T3 were 17.9 metres at 2% copper and 46 grams per tonne silver, 3 metres at 1.3% copper and 10 grams silver, and 16 metres at 1.3% copper and 22 grams silver.

Results from a further 34 diamond drill holes are pending but once they are in, Metal Tiger expects that an updated resource can be compiled by early June.

The results will also feed into the feasibility study to help increase confidence in the T3 Expansion Case model which assumes an ore processing rate of 2.5mln tonnes per year for around three years, before a ramp up to 4mln tonnes for a further eight years.
