Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has reported visible signs of metal from first drilling on its new target in the Kalahari copper belt in Botswana.

The mining junior recently re-jigged its interest in the area by swapping a direct stake in the T3 prospect for 30% of Tshukudu Exploration, a joint venture which has numerous licences in the surrounding area.

MOD Resources (ASX:MOD), which is set to list in London soon, holds the remaining 70% of Tshukudu.

“Diamond drilling in the first two widely spaced holes at the T23 Dome has intersected visible copper mineralisation at very shallow depth that may be of significant potential,” said the statement.

T23 Dome is 100km west of the T3 Project and if confirmed will be the sixth significant copper mineralisation found on the joint venture licences over the last 3 years.

Michael McNeilly, Metal Tiger’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to report the intersection of shallow copper mineralisation on the T23 Dome.

 “With drilling at the T23 Dome returning potentially significant visible copper intersections and rigs being mobilised to follow-up on the previous high-grade intersections at T4, we are looking forward to a potentially exciting new chapter of Kalahari copper discoveries.”
