Kavango receives Ditau Camp assays back from lab
Exploration company Kavango Resources confirmed on Thursday that the assay results from the two holes drilled at the Ditau Camp prospect had been received from Genalysis Laboratories in Australia.
The London-listed firm said a total of 489 core samples were prepared by Intertek Laboratories in Johannesburg, and assayed for 65 elements by Genalysis Laboratories in Australia using aqua regia digest with ICP finish.
Genalysis carried out 12 duplicate check assays, and ran 14 control standards and 14 blanks during the assay run.
Kavango said it was currently undertaking its own programme of checks and duplicates at an independent laboratory.
“We are pleased to have received the assay results from the two drill holes at Ditau,” said chief executive officer Michael Foster.
“Kavango is now completing its own check assays at an independent laboratory in South Africa, which is normal industry practice.
“We will then be in a position to fully check, assess and interpret the results so as to formulate our plans for Ditau.”
Foster said currently, Kavango's preferred option would be to farm-out the project to an industry partner.
“[This is] mainly due to its size, plus the fact that our main focus remains the Kalahari Suture Zone structure in southwest Botswana where drilling is expected to commence later this quarter.”
