Kopore Metals Limited announced that the second Natural Source Audio Magneto-Telluric geophysical survey has been completed at the Company's highest priority Ongava domal copper-silver prospect, located in the Republic of Namibia. The Ongava Domal Prospect NSAMT survey has identified immediate drill targets from near surface to depths of 300m and has provided an interpretation of the overall geological architecture at the prospect, to approximately 1km depth. The high priority Ongava Domal Prospect is approximately 34km in strike length. The Ongava Domal Prospect was interpreted from magnetics as a shallow near surface dome, with interpreted coincident thrust faulting, believed to be important to potential mineralisation trap sites. The NSAMT survey results indicate this highly likely with the targeted D’Kar/Ngwako Pan contact appearing to be developed at much shallower depths than in the nearby Omenye Domal Prospect.

Accordingly, the Company has redirected the currently mobilising RC rig to the Ongava Domal Prospect. An initial 2,000m RC drilling program will commence across the identified targets. Based upon the results of the initial drilling, the Company will consider a larger RC and Diamond drilling program. The survey comprised an initial 12-line km of 50m spaced NSAMT data that was acquired by Namibian based Gregory Symons Geophysics (GSG) along two north-west to south-east orientated, 8km space survey lines over the Ongava Domal Prospect.

Managing Director Mr Grant Ferguson stated “The NSAMT geophysical method has provided the Company with such compelling geological information at the Ongava dome, a currently mobilising RC drill rig is being diverted from the Omenye Domal Prospect to the Ongava Domal Prospect. The Ongava Domal Prospect survey results indicate the potential target horizons are close to surface, and given the dome has a strike length of 34km, an impressive level of blue-sky potential to explore.”
