Adavale targets high priority areas at Kabanga in Tanzania

The drilling program at ASX listed Adavale Resources’ Kabanga Jirani Nickel Project in Tanzania has recommenced.

The company has mobilised Diamond Drilling (DD) and Reverse Circulation (RC) rigs to the Luhuma trend location and several new DD and RC drill collar locations have been prepared for drilling, following integration of recent soil geochemistry results.

An audio magnetotelluric (AMT) survey team has joined the exploration team on site to assist with the drilling, while the exploration team has started drill core logging and processing.

According to Adavale’s Executive Director, David Riekie, the company is excited to recommence drilling on its high priority targets.

“Drilling is expected to include an initial mix of RC and diamond drilling totalling 5,000m over the coming months.

“The initial drilling program has recommenced within the Luhuma Trend situated within a narrow strike extensive zone in Adavale’s Kabanga North-East Licence,” says Riekie.

Drilling will include an initial RC and DD campaign of 5,000m, comprising 12 RC holes to ~150m depth and 8-10 DD holes to ~350m depth.

Priority areas identified for drilling in 2023 include the promising HEM 2 target and confirming a 15km strike extension to the north that sits within the broader Luhuma trend.

This trend hosts a series of mafic-ultramafic intrusions from which several historical massive Nickel (Ni) sulphide intersections have been reported and contain prospective host rocks and known sulphide mineralisation and is considered highly prospective.
