Sampling was completed from seven trenches for a total of 598 metres and 273 channel samples across the mineralised strata of cobalt-rich Kasombo 7.
FEL chairman Tony Sage said: “We are very excited by these results and will now plan a targeted drilling program on both Kasombo 5 and Kasombo 7 to further investigate the size of the great copper results and follow up on the good cobalt results.”
Notably, good cobalt assays were returned from trenches, including:
• 10 metres at 0.21% cobalt between 42 and 50 metres; and
• 12 metres at 0.23% cobalt between 17 and 26 metres.
Trenches completed at the Kasombo project
The channel samples returned good cobalt grades from two trenches at the expected targeted stratigraphic sequence.
The 600-hectare Kasombo project comprises three mineralised areas, Kasombo 5, 6 and 7, within two granted mining licences, which are held by La Generale Des Carrieres Et Des Mines S.A.
