• Permit covers an area of 28.35 km2 and lies roughly 8km SSE of Kolwezi
  • Eighty five percent of the property is overlain by recent soil cover
  • Roan sediments are interpreted to extend onto licence area
  • Roan sediments are being mined at Kamukongo and by artisanal miners immediately to the east of concessions
  • Proposed exploration consists of sampling of artisanal pits and exposures will be sampled during the due diligence period in preparation for targeted regional soil sampling and auger drilling programmes

PEPM 2315 (TAR earning 70%; SADRC Mining SARL 30%)

PEPM 2315 (Permis d’ Exploitation de Petite Mine) covers 28.35km2 and is located 8km SSE of Kolwezi in Lualaba Province as shown in Figure 6. Eighty five percent of the property is overlain by recent soil cover where mineralised Roan sediments mined at Kamukongo and by artisanal miners immediately to the east and on the licence are interpreted to extend westwards onto the licence below soil cover.

In the NE corner of the tenement, which is slightly elevated, artisanal miners are recovering heterogenite (cobalt) and copper oxide from a series of pits in an area referred to as Temoinage. Copper mineralisation in the form of malachite was observed as thin veinlets throughout a dolomitic unit exposed in the pits.

No systematic exploration has been undertaken on PEPM 2315, which has the potential to host significant mineralisation below the recent sand cover. All artisanal pits and exposures will be sampled during the due diligence period in preparation for targeted regional soil sampling and auger drilling programmes planned to test the mineralised potential of the underlying lithologies.
