Savannah Resources, the AIM-listed multi-commodity focused exploration and development company, has commenced the 2014 field exploration programme at its highly prospective 180km² Jangamo heavy mineral sands project, located in a world-class mineral sands province in southern Mozambique.

A two week ground geophysics programme is now underway. The first step in the 2014 Jangamo exploration programme will include ground and airborne magnetic and ground radiometric surveys, scout drilling and resource definition drilling. Drilling is expected to commence in late May 2014, and the overall objective is to define a maiden JORC Mineral Resource and commence a scoping study in the second half of 2014.

“Our 2014 exploration programme is now underway with the ground geophysics team on site at Jangamo.  The primary objective of the ground magnetics is to further define the two mineralised dune systems with strike lengths of at least 6km and 10km outlined from last year’s scout drilling campaign. This will assist in defining target zones for drilling due to commence in late May,” said Savannah CEO David Archer.

“We’re looking to more precisely define zones likely to have high heavy mineral contents.  We’re intent on executing a fast paced, results oriented exploration programme this year. Our objective is to define a JORC Mineral Resource and start a scoping study of the Jangamo project in the second half of 2014.”
