Kavango Resources PLC (LSE:KAV, OTC:KVGOF) said its Controlled-Source Audio Magnetotelluric (CSAMT) survey in the Kalahari Copper Belt in Botswana has identified potential mineralisation far deeper than previously expected.
“Initial results of inversions of the CSAMT data from the Line 4A Survey appear to provide high-quality vertical resistivity sections that identify sedimentary strata with good resolution, down to 4,000m depth,” Kavango said in a statement.
“This far exceeds expectations. Previously, at the company’s Kalahari Suture Zone and Ditau projects, Kavango had achieved detailed resolution of sedimentary strata down to roughly 1,000m depth.”
The results will be used to guide future CSAMT surveys and enhance the ongoing drill programme on licence PL082/2018 targeting copper/silver mineralisation, the statement added.
Jeremy S Brett, Kavango’s senior geophysicist, said: “CSAMT applied to the Kalahari Copper Belt is showing impressive promise as a geophysical tool to detect the primary bedding and secondary brittle controls that are well known to control mineralization in the belt.
“This method provides the detection of structure in vertical section and meshes well with the regional folding and faulting that can be interpreted very well from aeromagnetic surveys.
“The combination appears to be very powerful for exploration targeting.”
