Botswana Metals and BCL Limited Commence Regional Exploration Drilling into Three Prospective Ni-Sulphide Targets on PL54/1998

Botswana Metals announced that JV partners, BCL Limited, have commenced regional exploration drilling into three of 23 highly prospective Ni-sulphide targets on PL54/1998. A program of four deep holes will test several very attractive Ni-sulphide targets that are marked by prominent VTEM anomalies and corresponding SQUID EM conductors coincident with ultramafic intrusions and anomalous Cu and Ni soil geochemistry. The drill program will comprise 4 vertical diamond holes for an anticipated total of 1600m. The holes will be located across three high-priority regional targets on the JV PL54/98 ­ Takane licence. The three targets include Kudumane (Kudu1), Makhantlele (Mak1) and Mmatsiane (Mmats1). This area contains a very promising conductor plate that corresponds with strong magnetic residual anomalies. The 1km x 400m plate is relatively flat-lying and occurs at approximately 390m below the surface. A large ultramafic body is interpreted to occur coincident with the conductor and a number of other large conductive bodies as indicated by the VTEM survey occur within the target zone. Elevated nickel and copper responses have previously been revealed in soil geochemical sampling. This prospect contains a very strong conductor at 260m depth on the southern contact zone of an interpreted ultramafic intrusion. The plate is over 500m in strike length and models as relatively flat-lying zone. Further VTEM conductors surround the ultramafic intrusion and remain to be surveyed using the SQUID EM method. Elevated nickel and copper responses have previously been revealed in soil geochemical sampling. This prospect contains a large (>1km), strongly conductive plate at a depth of approximately 400m. The plate is interpreted to lie on the contact of an ultramafic intrusion and presents as a very attractive drill target. The survey also identified a very strong, shallow conductive plate also spatially associated with an interpreted ultramafic intrusion. Elevated nickel and copper responses have previously been revealed in soil geochemical sampling.
