Mineral Resource Potential:
Iron: Large iron horizons have been mapped in the Chisamba formation. Mwomboshi mine (an old high grade iron mine lies within the prospect). Two samples were collected and sent for analysis and averaged 91.19% iron with less than 5% silica.
Gold: Quartz carbonate veins pregnant with gold have been mapped within the Chisamba schist, averaging 8.8g/t over an average width of 7cm.
Copper: Several occurrences have been mapped in the region mostly hosted in the Katanga formations. Within the licence the potential for copper is low the area is hosted in granitic gneissic complex of Kundelungu age, a non typical geological setting for copper mineralisation in Zambia.
Graphite: Fine grained Chisamba sericite schist contains appreciable amount of graphite.
