MOD: Significant Visible Copper Intersected at Shallow Depth in T23 Dome

The company’s managing director said the results open up the wider potential of the extensive T20 Exploration Project.

MOD Resources (ASX:MOD) has announced what it calls potentially significant widths of visible copper mineralization at very shallow depth, from the first two widely spaced diamond core drill holes at the large T23 Dome, in the Kalahari copper belt in Botswana.

As highlighted in the press release;

  • First two holes intersect significant visible copper in T23 Dome at shallow depth
  • T23 Dome is the sixth substantial new copper find on MOD’s holdings in 3 years
  • Results confirm strategy of drilling large structural domes defined by EM and magnetics
  • Opens up wider potential of the huge T20 Exploration Project (covering ~3,350km2 )

MOD managing director, Julian Hanna said:

“The immediate success of finding copper near surface at T23 Dome confirms the prospectivity of this exciting new target. It also opens up the wider potential of the extensive T20 Exploration Project, dominated by a wide, ~60km long zone of copper and zinc soil anomalies which are as yet undrilled.

The early results from T23 Dome and previous drilling success at T4 in early 2016 suggest this could be another copper rich region, in addition to the prolific T3 region 100km to the east. MOD and our 30 percent JV partner Metal Tiger have built a very experienced team, developed an effective strategy and applied the best exploration techniques to find copper across our huge landholding along the copper belt.”
