Cobre Limited (ASX:CBE) Drilling Commenced in Botswana

05/10/2021 | 08:09pm EDT

Sydney, Australia, May 11, 2021 - (ABN Newswire) - Cobre Limited (ASX:CBE) is pleased to announce that mobilisation to site of both Reverse Circulation (RC) and Diamond Core (DC) drill rigs has been completed and drilling has now commenced on Kalahari Metal Limited's (KML) wholly owned Kitlanya East (KIT-E) project in Botswana.

This drilling programme (refer ASX Announcement 19 April 2021 for detail) is aiming to target structurally controlled trap-sites for prospective copper/silver deposits identified in Airborne Electromagnetic (AEM), detailed magnetic, soil sampling and stratigraphic drilling which share commonalities to ASX listed Sandfire Resources Limited's (Sandfire) T3 and A4 deposits located immediately north of the KIT-E project boundary. The drill programme will include (refer Figure 1*):

- Stratigraphic DC drilling (~800m) into the core of the Perseverance prospect (previously South Target) designed to test for prospective lower D'Kar Formation stratigraphy, alteration, mineralisation and potential underlying mineralised redox contact with the Ngwako Pan Formation; and

- Focussed RC drilling (~4,000m) designed to test for mineralisation associated with several structurally controlled targets starting at the Endurance prospect (previously North Target).
Commenting on the commencement of the Drill Programme, Martin Holland, Cobre's Executive Chairman and Managing Director, said:

"I am very pleased to be able to advise drilling is underway on KML's priority targets for structural and dome style mineralisation. These styles have been shown by our neighbours in the Kalahari Copper Belt to hold the highest grade mineralisation, with the potential to be in near surface positions. I eagerly anticipate the results of this maiden drilling programme for the new KML joint venture with our partner, Metal Tiger plc."
