Kalahari Metals Ltd, a company in which Metal Tiger Plc (LON:MTR) holds a 59.8% interest, has identified veinlet and disseminated sulphide copper mineralisation in drilling on its licences in Botswana.
To date, nine drill holes totalling 2,008 metres have been completed across two projects, Ngami and Okavango.
"This is a very positive start to KML's inaugural drilling campaign, and we are delighted that the airborne geophysics modelling and the technical team's iterative interpretation of this in conjunction with magnetics and other factors is proving a reliable methodology,” said Metal Tiger chief executive Michael McNeilly.
“We are very encouraged by the visible copper mineralisation seen in the core and look forward to testing for further mineralisation along strike. This bodes well for future drilling campaigns, especially at the Kit-East project which is proximal to the T3 project.
“I am encouraged by the thoroughness and professionalism that goes into the geological interpretation that has allowed for such early success."
