Kopore Metals Ltd (ASX:KMT) has identified two copper and nickel soil anomalies from its Virgo group of licences in Botswana.

A total of 326 soil samples over a combined area of 28.3 kilometres were collected by Kopore and dispatched to Intertek Laboratories for analysis by the Terra Leach method, which continues to demonstrate its suitability for the Kalahari Copper Belt.

Potential for copper mineralisation

Managing director Grant Fergus said: “The Virgo group soil anomalies lie within and adjacent to the highly prospective Central Structural Corridor and within 50 kilometres of the Zone 5 and Banana Zone Copper Projects known as the two largest copper projects on the Kalahari Copper Belt.

“Two of our Virgo prospecting licences have started to demonstrate their potential for anomalous copper mineralisation and we will be actively exploring these two prospects.

“The company intends to assess the prospectivity of the two other untested licences and update the market in due course.”

These anomalies are coincident to the interpreted Ngwako Pan and D’Kar formation geological contact.

The largest of the two anomalies extends across 3 kilometres in strike length and is interpreted to overlay the southern end of an identified dome straddling the anticline axis.

Another soil anomaly extends 2.5 kilometres along the D’Kar and Ngwako Pan Formations contact, around 38 kilometres southwest of the Cupric Canyon Zone 5 Copper Project.

The company is working on completing the unfinished borehole at the Korong Central Domal prospect, a ground geophysical program and review of the Korong Central Domal plan.
