Project Details

The Ditau Project covers 2,652.9km2 in southwest Botswana. During an exploration drilling campaign focused on the Project’s i10 target, one of Kavango’s holes – DITDD004 – encountered a 100m thick Zone of Interest containing anomalous gold. The zone runs from 293m to 393m and is open at depth.

The Company commissioned Dr. Hamid Mumin – Professor and former Chair of the Department of Geology at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada – to analyse core from the Zone of Interest. Dr. Mumin concluded the likely presence of a large alteration system with excellent gold potential within a very thick, open Banded Iron Formation (“BIF”) in the area.

Kavango has subsequently completed a number of work programmes to build on this potential.

The Company relogged Hole DITDD004, which determined that localised brecciation of the BIF has enhanced its permeability, allowing the passage of sulphide and gold bearing fluid. It also found that previously-reported gold assays coincide with fine pyrite in the BIF – something typical in many gold deposits worldwide.

Kavango also completed a review of core and logs from two holes drilled by a diamond exploration and mining company targeting the same i10 geophysical anomalies as Kavango in 2021. The core appears to have intercepted the same mineralised BIF as DITDD004, indicating strike potential.


Next Steps

With pyrite and carbonate levels increasing towards the end of the holes Kavango has reviewed, the Company is investigating the scale of mineralisation at i10 and across the wider Ditau Project area.

The Company has expanded its licence area to secure additional ground that could be relevant to Dr. Mumin’s ore deposit model.
