The initial phase of work, at licences PL40/2018 and PL39/2018, aims to define targets for drilling. The programme will include ‘heliborne’ electromagnetics (EM) geophysical surveys as well as reconnaissance soil sampling.
“We are pleased to announce the commencement of exploration activities on Kalahari Copper Belt (KCB) tenures PL40/2018 and PL39/2018,” Colin Bird, Galileo’s chief executive said in a statement.
“Initial exploration will include Heli-EM and soil sampling surveys, which are routine exploration techniques within the KCB and have been responsible for the identification of multiple prospects that have become copper-silver mineral deposits for companies such as Discovery Metals, Cupric Canyon and MOD Resources.”
Galileo noted that the licences are interpreted by management to have similar geological settings to Cupric Canyon Capital’s Zone 5 and Zone 5N deposits, which are only 25 kilometres due west.
Additionally, the acreage lies along strike of Sandfire Resources’ T3 and A4 copper-silver deposits, as well as Cupric’s Banana Zone and Eland Zone copper deposits.
