On February 28, 2019, reconnaissance drilling within the prospecting licence area indicated additional satellite feed potential from the Ombepo target, 7 kilometres from the proposed Etango primary crusher.

A total of eight reverse circulation (RC) drill holes were drilled for 973 metres, testing the Ombepo and Rossingberg targets north of Etango.

Four drill holes for 575 metres were drilled at the Ombepo prospect and four drill holes for 398 metres were drilled at Rossingberg.

Highlighted results included:

  • 2 meters at 452 ppm uranium from 70 metres;

  • 13 metres at 203 ppm from 146 metres, including 2 metres at 401 ppm from 147 metres;

  • 19 metres at 203 ppm from 140 metres, including 5 metres at 372 ppm from 153 metres; and

  • 11 metres at 238 ppm from 153 metres.

Both targets have been retained within the renewed licence area.
