Project Details

The Kalahari Copper Belt (“KCB”) stretches 1,000 km from northeast Botswana into Namibia and has become a focal point for the discovery of sediment-hosted copper deposits. Total resources to date exceed 8 million tonnes of contained copper.

Kavango’s large contiguous licence package covers two mineralising systems on the Botswana side of the KCB. The ground is along strike of the region’s major mines – MMG’s (HKG:1208) Khoemacau Mine and Sandfire Resources’ (ASX:SFR) Motheo Mine.


Kavango’s team believes its ground has been historically overlooked due to inaccurate mapping and surveying. Recent developments in the understanding of the KCB’s geological setting and advances in exploration methods have underlined the prospectivity of the ground.

Kavango has recruited a skilled team to explore its KCB properties fronted by Dave Catterall – a leading KCB exploration geologist.

The Company’s priority focus is the Karakubis Project, which spans four licences close to the Namibian border. Helicopter-borne gravity data has clearly defined the WSW-ENE trending Kara gravity high underlying the Kara Anticline within the Karakubis licences.

The Kara gravity high is one of two linear features that may indicate the presence of basement highs defining multiple edges between two deeper basins. Basin margins along the KCB are considered prospective sites for Cu-Ag mineralisation.

Preliminary interpretation of magnetic survey data combined with re-processed regional magnetic data and satellite images clearly define fold hinge targets in the

D'Kar Formation (DKF) that correlate with preliminary AEM targets. Fold hinges are associated with mineralisation elsewhere on the KCB, such as the Motheo Mine.

Next Steps

Kavango placed a drill contract in May 2024 for 5,000 m of diamond core drilling targeting the shallower Kara Anticline’s potential to be a copper mineralising system. Updates will be provided as the program advances.
