Ditau Camp Project


The Ditau prospecting licence (PL169) covers 469km2 and is the most advanced of Kavango’s prospects. The Ditau prospect is a 7km x 5km magnetic and gravity anomaly (see the “Follow-up” grid on the map) with significant zinc-in-soils anomalies. Geochemical soil sampling and geophysics (magnetic and gravity surveys, as well as a ground based geophysics technique known as Controlled Source Audio frequency Magneto Tellurics (CSAMT), have identified a number of large conductive anomalies at depth.

Massive sulphide (base metal) deposits can be detected by CSAMT deep beneath the surface because they conduct electricity easily. The shape, orientation and depth of the conductors determines if the conductor should be drilled, particularly if the conductor coincides with zinc-in-soil (surface) anomalies.

In Q1 2019, Kavango drilled two holes (core).

Both holes encountered intense alteration and deformation of the Karoo age rocks, which lie above a mafic intrusive (gabbro), which is almost certainly the source of the magnetic and gravity anomaly.

The alteration in the Karoo sediments appears to be in excess of 300m thick, whilst the alteration penetrates into the gabbro for at least another 75m. Iron and copper sulphide mineralisation is present throughout the altered Karoo sediments and the gabbro. Indicative cobalt mineralisation has been identified in both holes (portable XRF analyses).

The core from both holes has been cut and sampled in Botswana and has been sent for assay and analysis at a laboratory in Australia.
