Metal Tiger hits more copper on the T3 Dome Complex in Botswana

Significant intersect on the A4 zone could herald further increase to mineralised resources

There is already a significant copper resource in the ground at T3

Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has logged significant visible copper sulphides in core from the latest diamond drill hole testing the A4 Dome on the company’s Botswana joint venture with MOD Resources (ASX:MOD).

The mineralisation was intersected in veins over a 67 metre downhole interval from 232 metres to 299 metres downhole depth.

The dominant copper vein mineralisation is chalcopyrite, with localised bornite and chalcocite increasing with depth in the vein zone.

The A4 Dome is first of seven ‘buried domes’ to be drilled in T3 Dome Complex as part of a major drilling campaign, with five drill rigs now operating.

“We are delighted to report that the latest drill hole testing the core of the A4 Dome has intersected what looks to be significant copper sulphide mineralisation,” said Michael McNeilly, chief executive of Metal Tiger.

“The onsite geologists are particularly excited by the stockwork morphology of the mineralisation which is a style previously unseen by the joint venture drilling. This has further implications in that the A4 Dome appears to be an intact dome, so any vein hosted mineralisation deposited within the dome should still be there. Everyone is looking forward to receiving the assay results.”
