Australian-listed, Zambian-focused manganese company Kaboko Mining has completed an exploration drilling programme at the Mansa, Northern Zambian Manganese project.
According to the company, drilling results identified the best exploration results to date with visible intersections significantly wider than previous results.
The RC drilling programme completed 2 760 m drilled in 32 holes and confirms significant visible intersections supporting mine life extensions with the reef widening visually in key areas.
The initial drill target (phase 1 of the programme) was based on detail mapping of excavated trenches. The mapping showed three reefs: the main, the middle and the northern reef, extending in an east-south-easterly direction.
Phase 2 was designed to test the reef alongside the northern boundary of the open Pit. During the drilling of Phase 2, emphasis was placed on the intersection of the reef at depth and along the northern border of the pit, as the reef was much thicker in this area.
The completed drilling programme intersected Mn at depth and proves the downward extension of the mineralisation.
Kaboko Mining CEO Tokkas Van Heerden says the drilling results are an exciting conclusion to the drilling programme, which “adds significant support to existing mining operations and the preparation of the maiden JORC compliant resource statement”.
