Adavale licensed to explore coveted nickel area in Tanzania

ASX listed Adavale Resources has been granted a key prospecting license in the broad Luhuma trend within its Kabanga Jirani Nickel Project in Tanzania.

The Kabanga Jirani Nickel Project is in the Kagera Region of Tanzania on the Karagwe-Ankolean system.

Luhuma Central covers about 3.74km2 and contains an historical 8.4m intersection of massive sulphide grading 1.14% nickel (Ni).

According to Adavale’s Chairman, Grant Pierce, Luhuma Central is now a high priority target under the current drilling program.

Pierce explains that Adavale applied for Luhuma Central because it viewed the area as a geologically important addition to its the company’s exploration tenure, due to its historical results and being within the broader 15km Luhuma trend discovered by Adavale.

Historical results included the abovementioned intercept of 1.14% Ni over 8.4m in massive sulphides.

“Adavale has from the outset applied for its licences on geological merit rather than nearology alone.

“The company recognised Luhuma Central as a coveted area, being within favourable lithologies and with demonstrable nickel sulphide mineralisation.

“It will play a key role in our broader exploration success. The granting of Luhuma Central is opportune timing as Adavale has recently recommenced drilling, being a ~5,000m program and Luhuma Central will definitely feature in this program.”

Luhuma Central, despite its small size, is considered geologically and technically significant as the licence area contains a coincident magnetic and gravity anomaly based on proximal surveys previously completed by Adavale in addition to an historic drillhole undertaken by BHP in the 1990’s.

Pierce says that Adavale plans to initially twin this historical hole and utilise Downhole Electromagnetics (DHEM) and audio magnetotelluric (AMT) surveys.

“Adavale will then further assess the potential to step out drilling to fully understand the potential extent of mineralisation and its orientation.”

WhyAfrica will visit a number of project sites in Tanzania later in the year during our annual WhyAfrica Road Trip
