Metal Tiger submits application for drilling around T20 Dome complex

The AIM-listed miner said the application, lodged with the Botswana Department of Environment Affairs, would cover drilling around a circa 697 square kilometre area

An airborne electromagnetic geophysics survey is also planned

Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has submitted an application for an environmental management plan (EMP) for drilling at its T20 Dome complex in Botswana.

The AIM-listed miner said the application, lodged with the Botswana Department of Environment Affairs (DEA), would cover drilling around a circa 697 square kilometre area.

Metal Tiger added that the EMP would allow the drilling of new and existing strike targets identified along a 140 kilometre long strike of the Central Structural Corridor.

An additional airborne electromagnetic (EM) geophysics survey covering 939 square kilometres is also planned to commence at the site in mid-2018, to link up with previous EM trail survey blocks over the centre of the T20 Dome.

The news comes following the approval of an EMP at the group’s T3 Dome complex on 3 April 2018, which expanded the drilling area available there to 680 square kilometres.

Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger, commented: “The submission of the EMP for the T20 Dome will, where awarded, provide access to important strategic ground for the JV and open up an additional 697km2 of under explored and prospective Kalahari copper belt for drilling.

He added: “Opening the T20 Dome for drilling will allow the possibility of adding to a pipeline of confirmed copper targets whilst we move the T3 Resource through the mine feasibility study process. With the recently awarded T3 Dome EMP, drilling is planned to commence at the T3 Dome in May, and we look forward to the prospect of exciting drill intersections.”

Metal Tiger shares were steady at 1.98p in early trading Monday.
