Canadian firm Geotech is carrying out the VTEM survey over the Kalahari Suture Zone. Kavango is exploring for sulphide orebodies rich in nickel/copper/platinum group metals.
In the first phase, the helicopter will fly at a height of 60-70m above the ground with the survey equipment only 30-40m above ground;
The survey is initially being flown over Kavango's licences in the Hukuntsi area.
Michael Foster, chief executive, said: "We are pleased to be able to announce that Kavango's contractors have completed all VTEM system tests and have now commenced flying the helicopter-borne geophysical survey over the KSZ prospecting licences, which cover almost 7,000 Km2 of south-west Botswana.
“This is only five weeks from listing of Kavango's shares on the London Stock Market and demonstrates the company's efficient planning and operations in Botswana”.
