Drilling updates from Alphamin’s DRC interests

Alphamin Resources, a producer of 4% of the world’s mined tin from its high-grade operation in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has announced drilling progress at its Mpama North mine and Mpama South deposit.

Chief Executive Officer, Maritz Smith comments:

“We are delighted with the recent drilling results and ground-breaking interpretations of these exploration initiatives and look forward to realising our exceptional resource and production expansion potential.”


  • Strike extension to the operating Mpama North mine identified from significant visual cassiterite drilling intercepts

Further Mpama South high-grade assay results received, which include:

  • BGH075: 14.4 metres @ 3.2% Sn from 115.4 metres
    BGH074: 18.4 metres @ 2.2% Sn from 278.9 metres
  • BGH066: 2.6 metres @ 8.5% Sn from 276.0 metres
    BGH067: 4.7 metres @ 3.2% Sn from 295.8 metres
    BGH070: 5.4 metres @ 3.0% Sn from 331.0 metres
    BGH072: 5.1 metres @ 2.7% Sn from 274.6 metres and 4.4 metres @ 3.6% Sn
    from 290.4 metres
  • Mpama South drilling intercepts are now within 200m of the Mpama North orebody
    Indications are that Mpama South and Mpama North was one zone of high-grade tin mineralisation offset and displaced by a fault
  • Potential for synergies and fast-tracking of underground access to Mpama
    South exists
