Metal Tiger makes drilling headway in Botswana

Hole OCP06 intersected two wide zones, totalling 85 metres, with visible copper-sulphide mineralisation

Metal Tiger Plc -

Kalahari Metals Limited, in which Metal Tiger Plc (LON:MTR) has a near 60% stake, has provided an encouraging drilling update from its Okavango Copper Project in Botswana.

It has completed six holes for a total of 1,656 metres, which successfully proved the existence of the of D’Kar and Ngwako Pan formations that are prospective for both copper and silver.

Hole OCP06 intersected two wide zones, totalling 85 metres, with visible copper-sulphide mineralisation.

Chief executive Michael McNeilly said this may represent a “mineralised halo to potentially higher-grade copper mineralisation nearby”.

Only one hole did not intercept the D’Kar and Ngwako Pan formations at the modelled depth.

In the same announcement, Metal Tiger said the Botswana Department of Environmental Affairs has authorised the start of exploration activities including drilling at Kitlanya West and Kitlanya East projects.

Drilling is planned to start testing structural targets at Kitlanya East, around five kilometres from the T3 Deposit, owned by a company called Sandfire Resources.

At Kitlanya West seven “compelling drill targets” have been identified.
