The Ditau Camp Project
Large land holding (1,386km2) centred within an area highly prospective for carbonitites.
Airborne magnetic survey over the property identified 11 ring structures within the Property with diameters up to 11km.
Carbonitites are a primary source of rare-earth element (REEs) as well as niobium-tantalum, thorium, uranium, vanadium, copper and other critical metals.
The Kalahari Copper Belt
Kavango’s commands one of the largest prospecting licence holdings within the entire burgeoning Kalahari Copper Belt.
Licences are proximal to several near-term copper/silver producing mines owned by Sandfire Resources Ltd., and Cupric Canyon Capital.
Multiple geophysical and geochemical surveys completed by Kavango have led to the identification of several drill-ready targets.
The Kalahari Suture Zone
Licences cover underexplored structural zone which displays many similarities to the giant Ni-Cu-PGE Norilsk deposits in Russia.
Academic reviews have confirmed that the KSZ possesses many of the requirements for the formation of Ni-Cu-PGE Sulphide Deposits.
Large magnetic anomalies are caused by Karoo-aged and Proterozoic gabbroic units, both of which are prospective for the formation of Ni-Cu-PGE Sulphide Deposits.
