Hana Mining Adds Percussion Drill Rig to its Copper-Silver Project in Botswanaadmin
Hana Mining Ltd. “We now have three drill rigs operating in three separate areas; two are in Zone 2 and 4 kilometers apart and the third is 95 kilometers northwest in Zone 6. We are intersecting copper mineralization everywhere the prospective horizon has been drilled,” states Peter Wilson, President of Hana Mining.
Hana is pleased to report it has added a percussion drill rig to its expanding drill program at its sediment-hosted Ghanzi Copper-Silver Project in Botswana, Africa.
Copper-sulphide mineralization was intersected in the first percussion hole and additional drilling will be carried out to determine the extent of the mineralization along strike and at depth. This area is located 13 kilometers along strike from Zone 1 and 4 kilometers north of current core drilling at Zone 2. Following completion of drilling at this target the percussion rig will move on to another fold structure 10 kilometers southeast of Zone 2. This structure, interpreted from an airborne magnetic survey, has not been explored previously.
The percussion drilling is being carried out by Pula Groundwater Developers (Pty) Ltd. and has begun testing the north limb of the Zone 2 anticline (refer to map here: www.hanamining.com/s/Ghanzi.asp?ReportID=303741). The drilling is designed to test areas interpreted to lie along the mineralized horizon but with little or no previous exploration.
Ongoing core and RC drilling will continue testing two separate areas. RC drilling is in progress at Zone 6 along a parallel syncline and core drilling continues on the south limb of the anticline at Zone 2. The core rig will also test targets generated by ongoing IP and HLEM geophysical surveys.
The Drilling program is designed to test 220 kilometers of prospective strike length defined by previous drilling, soil geochemistry and an airborne magnetic survey.
Drill sections to date are summarized in a 3D model which can be viewed at http://www.corebox.net/properties/ghanzi/ or by following a link on the Company’s website.
