THE DRILL SERGEANT: Tanga Resources (ASX: TRL) announced drillinhg has commenced at the company’s Hagenhof copper project in Namibia.
Tanga Resources explained the program has been updated to now consist of approximately 3,000 metres of diamond and Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling to test copper mineralisation at several targets at Hagenhof.
The company had to revise its previously announced RC drill program due to an unexpected delay in the arrival of an RC rig from South Africa, resulting in the drilling contractor providing a track mounted diamond drill rig, at no additional cost to the company, until the RC drill rig arrives, at which time the program will revert back to RC drilling.
“Diamond drilling has commenced at the Main Gossan targeting a prominent ground magnetic anomaly and will test the strike, plunge and grade of the historically reported copper mineralisation,” Tanga Resources said in its ASX announcement.
“It is expected that RC drilling will then test the prominent magnetic anomaly coinciding with a large interpreted structural domal feature at Liv’s Hill, before going on to test copper mineralisation at Jette’s Hill, Copper Cap and P5; all of which have never previously been drilled.”
