Tete West (3245L)
3245L is located 12km west of the city of Tete and extends over 182km². The tenement lies immediately to the southwest of the Riversdale Mining Limited tenement 946L where an Indicated and Inferred Coal Resource of 9.0Bt was recently reported to occur. Some 20km to the east is the 4.0Bt Benga coal deposit where RIV has commenced mining.
The Company has a 70% interest in this tenement, with the remainder held with local partners including Camal & Companhia Lda. Geological mapping and ground verification indicates the potential for coal-bearing Lower Karoo sediments in the north east of the license.
The Company’s recent capital raising has ensured sufficient funding to undertake the initial exploration programme. The planned drilling programme will involve an estimated 2000m of core drilling. Initially, the programme will centre on five wide-spaced deep drillholes at 500-1000m spacings. This will be followed by systematic wide spaced drilling to determine the extent of the coal-bearing stratigraphy. All drill holes will be geophysically logged. The programme will be followed by resource definition drilling in areas of mineralisation.
