THE DRILL SERGEANT: Tanga Resources (ASX: TRL) announced it has received the Environmental Clearance Certificate (ECC) for the company’s 100 per cent-owned Hagenhof copper project in Namibia.
Tanga Resources said it now has all approvals required for its maiden RC drilling program at Hagenhof, which is expected to commence in the coming weeks.
The plus-2,000 metre drill program will initially focus on the Main Gossan to test the grade and tenor of the of historical copper mineralisation reported from previous diamond drilling.
Subsequently the program will test additional targets the company recently identified over an eight-kilometre copper bearing stratigraphic horizon which trends east of Main Gossan.
The company indicated a recently completed ground magnetic survey over Main Gossan, Liv’s Hill and Copper Cap will assist in refining targets for the planned drilling program.
“With the Environmental Clearance Certificate secured we are now fully permitted to commence our maiden drill program at Hagenhof,” Tanga Resources CEO Matthew Bowles said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“This program will initially follow up on the historical Phelps Dodge drilling to confirm the grade and tenor of the significant copper mineralisation previously reported at the Main Gossan, before going on to test several additional targets which host extensive stratabound copper and gold mineralisation.
“We are really encouraged by the exploration results that we have received to date and believe this drilling program is the next step in unlocking the significant copper potential we are seeing at Hagenhof.”
