Ditau - Large-scale Lode Gold Exploration Potential

A review of the mineral exploration potential of the Ditau Project, Botswana, has been carried out for Kavango by Dr. Hamid Mumin, Professor and Former Chair of the Department of Geology at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada. The Review has identified a possible high potential Banded Iron Formation hosted Lode Gold model at the Ditau Project.

This review of Ditau core could be a very important breakthrough for Kavango. Dr Mumin has identified the potential for a large Banded Iron Formation-hosted Lode Gold system, such systems can be capable of hosting world-class multimillion-oz gold deposits. In particular, Dr Mumin highlighted the thickness of the Banded Iron Formation intersected by DITDD004, which extends for >100m and is open at depth.

Given the thickness of the Banded Iron Formation (BIF), the extent of structural disruption, & the highly anomalous gold values Dr Mumin believes we are “as close as is possible” to definitively indicating a Lode Gold system at Ditau. Our job now is to work with Dr Mumin on verifying Ditau’s potential and we are  prepping assays/samples for petrological testing & completing a thorough review of our geophysics data, we’re making sure our understanding of the project is as comprehensive as possible before we define targets & begin discovery drilling.
