To date, three holes have been completed for a total advance of 476 metres.
The drilling aims to test the prospective 100-metre thick quartzite unit, which hosts extensive artisanal workings at surface over an area of 2500 metres x 200 metres.
Importantly, visible coarse-grained cassiterite (a tin-bearing mineral) crystals have been logged in drill hole KKDD003.

The quartz veins occur as stacked veins perpendicular to the dip of the quartzite unit.
Additional mineralisation is expected to occur along fine-grained layer parallel alteration units now weathered to fine tourmaline and clays.
Carnavale had signed an exclusive and binding option agreement to earn-in up to 70% of the Kikagati Tin Project.
The project covers an area of about 83 square kilometres, comprising seven exploration permits and a mining lease which spans extensive surface and shallow underground artisanal workings over at least 2 kilometres of strike.
Two additional larger capacity drill rigs have arrived on site and are intended to accelerate the program over the coming weeks.
All sampling remains to be undertaken.
