Botswana Diamonds optimistic about Orapa project as it identifies 12 targets

05 september 2012

Botswana Diamonds said preliminary results from its prospecting licence PL170/2012 in Orapa, Botswana, have been positive.
It said in a statement that 12 targets had been identified of which five were top priority.
Detailed ground magnetic and gravity surveys and a follow up percussion drilling programme would commence shortly, the miner said.
The entire programme was expected to be completed within six months.
"The new licence, PL170/2012 is proving to be as good as we hoped.  We have outlined twelve targets on the ground of which five look particularly interesting,” said company chairperson John Teeling.
“We are mobilising crews to undertake ground surveys on these five to identify drilling targets."
The licence was awarded earlier this year and it covered 262.6 square kilometres and lies 70 kilometres to the southwest of the giant Debswana owned Orapa diamond mine.
