Mount Burgess Mining NL has started a drilling program of about 1,200 meters at its Kihabe zinc project in Botswana.
The program will primarily focus on Target 52, a geochemical soil anomaly identified 2 kilometers southeast of the company’s Nxuu deposit.
The geochemical soil results suggest a possible mineralized strike length of more than 5 kilometers, which is more than double that of the combined strike lengths of the Kihabe and Nxuu deposits.
Drilling of anomalies other than Target 52 in the license area is also planned in the near future, the company said Oct. 12.
The results of the drilling are expected in November.
