Kavango highlights similarities between northern Kalahari Suture Zone and Norilsk with new images

The Kalahari Suture Zone could turn out to be transformational for the company

Kavango Resources PLC -

Kavango Resources PLC (LON:KAV) has published initial images of three dimensional geological modelling developed from data obtained from the Kalahari Suture Zone (KSZ) project in south-western Botswana.

The images confirm significant similarities between the northern Hukuntsi section of the KSZ and the giant Norilsk mining centre in Siberia. Norilsk accounts for 90% of Russia's nickel reserves, 55% of its copper and virtually all of its' platinum group metals.

Kavango said it increasingly believes that Hukuntsi has the potential to host very significant copper, nickel and platinum group metal deposits.

The 3D model incorporates thousands of data points, collected from two phases of airborne electro-magnetic and magnetic surveying as well as drill hole data and resistivity surveys completed over the Hukuntsi section of the KSZ.

"The imagery coming out of the computer-generated geological model is quite spectacular and potentially transformational for the company,” Kavango chief executive Mike Foster said in a statement.

“We are now able to view the gabbroic intrusions in 3D. We can see their shape, size thickness and their depth from surface. We can clearly identify and locate the thicker parts of the sills for follow up EM surveying. This is a major step forward in our exploration, which should culminate in an extensive drilling programme in the KSZ," he added.
