Metal Tiger PLC - Metal Tiger - Kalahari Metals to restart drilling in Botswana

Metal Tiger Plc (LON:MTR) relayed an update from part-owned associate Kalahari Metals Limited (KML).

The company owns 62.2% of KML which is preparing to restart drilling at the Kitlanya East (KIT-E) project by the end of June. It comes as Botswana is gradually relaxing coronavirus restrictions.

Drilling at KIT-E was suspended in early April. During the lockdown period KML remodelled and interpreted data and preliminary drill results and this has led to a refinement of the follow-on targets.

Chief executive Michael McNeilly said: "We are pleased to report that KML is planning to recommence the diamond drilling programme at their Kitlanya East Project on the Kalahari Copper Belt, by the end of the month, as the Botswana government gradually relaxes COVID-19 related lockdown restrictions.

“Whilst site work had to go on hold, KML has taken the opportunity to incorporate the preliminary drilling datasets into the geophysical, remote sensing and geochemical models, updating and fine tuning the target interpretation that shows strong geological similarities with the neighbouring Sandfire Resources deposits.”
