White Metal Resources has revealed that the primary objective of the 2020-21 exploration programme is to update historical mineral resources in the Okohongo deposit and complete a technical report and mineral resource estimate compliant with The National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101).
The TSX-listed company has initiated its 2020-21 exploration programme on the Taranis copper-silver located in northwestern Namibia.
The news follows after the company received approval for its exploration from the Ministry of Mines and Energy (MME) as well as permission to re-log and re-sample historical reverse circulation (RC) drill hole sample chips stored in a government warehouse in Tsumeb.
In addition to the RC chip re-sampling programme, White Metals Resources is planning to complete a minimum 1 000 metre RC drilling programme, aimed largely at the historical Okohongo Cu-Ag deposit (confirmation and in-fill holes) and reconnaissance geological mapping and sampling over the property.
Michael Stares, President and CEO stated, “I am very excited to see the start of our mineral exploration programme on the Taranis copper-silver project. Although the primary target is the historical Okohongo copper-silver deposit, we will be conducting reconnaissance work over the entire EPL, including follow up on a number of promising historical copper showings.”
