The Botswana Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) has approved the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) for a drilling campaign to test numerous high priority targets along the 50km long T3 Dome, a project 30%-owned by Metal Tiger PLC and 70% owned by MOD Resources.
The T3 Dome EMP is subject to a four-week public review period, and accordingly drilling is planned to commence in May 2018.
T3 Dome EMP will increase the area available for drilling within the T3 Dome to around 680 square kilometres.
Drill targets will include an initial 10 high priority untested T3 Dome Airborne Electromagnetic (EM) geophysics anomalies thought to be related to lithological formation conductors.
“These high priority target anomalies represent an opportunity for the discovery of additional satellite copper deposits which could augment or supplement the potential offered by developing the T3 Open Pit Resource and its potential underground extensions,” said Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger.
“We look forward to the prospect of an exciting stream of regional drill results whilst the JV continues to progress the T3 Feasibility Study works.”
