Metal Tiger PLC - Metal Tiger: Kalahari Metals suspends drilling as Botswana enters 28-day coronavirus lockdown

Metal Tiger PLC (LON:MTR) has told investors that its Kalahari Metals joint venture has suspended drilling operations at the Kitlanya East project in Botswana, as the African country goes into coronavirus ‘lockdown’.

The group noted Botswana has gone into a national lockdown for 28 days from April 2 following confirmation of the country’s first three cases of coronavirus.

In a stock market statement, Metal Tiger said: “Drilling completed to date at Kitlanya East has intersected shallow lower D’Kar formation units, highlighting the potential for Cu-Ag mineralisation in close proximity to neighbouring Sandfire Resources T3 deposit.

“Continuation of drilling and sampling programmes at Kitlanya East are planned to recommence as soon as restrictions on movement are relaxed.”

The Kitlanya East programme kicked off in early March and it was designed to comprise at least four diamond core holes, totalling around 1,200 metres of drilling.
