· Further information in respect of the Company and its business interests is provided on the Company’s website at www.kavangoresources.com.

 

Michael Foster, Chief Executive Officer of Kavango commented:

 

"We are pleased to announce that the necessary permit has been granted which allows us to commence flying of the VTEM survey over the Kalahari Suture Zone prospecting licences in Botswana.

 

The area to be surveyed displays a geological setting with distinct similarities to the extensive Norilsk nickel, copper and platinum group element deposits in Siberia and our exploration programmes, historically and going forward, have been designed with this in mind.

 

This VTEM survey announced today is a key step in the targeting process for what is a considerable strategic area under the 12 prospecting licences held outright by the Company most notably the 450km long structural/magnetic feature previously identified.

 

Flying is expected to commence shortly and we look forward to updating the market with material developments as this work is undertaken.”
