Perth, Australia — 20 June 2013 – Australian base metals exploration and development company, Sabre Resources has found high grade copper mineralisation from channel sampling at Schlangental at the western end of the Guchab Mining Centre, in Namibia.
allAfrica.com quotes Sabre as revealing in a statement here that notable results include 15m at 4.21% copper and 28.06gpt silver, including three metres at 14.11% copper and 68.63gpt silver, as well as 42m at 3.58% copper and 18.34gpt silver, including one meter at 19.62% copper and 200gpt silver and two metres at 11.96% copper and 50.25gpt silver.
The results, which are associated with historical open pits and trenches at Schlangental, extend the boundaries of the Guchab mining centre and are further evidence of copper mineralisation along the Kombat Mine sequence.
Sabre said it was now carrying out a programme of shallow percussion drilling, covering an area of about 1.2km by 1.0km in preparation for a deeper reverse circulation and diamond drilling programme in the near future.
The Schlangental prospect area consists of a series of shallow open pits located in a 500m wide sand-covered valley, with outcropping mineralisation and workings on the margins of the valley.
The primary focus of Sabre is the exploration and development of the Ongava Multi-Element project in Namibia. The Guchab Mining Centre comprises extensive historic workings and outcropping copper mineralisation covering around 3.5km of the Kombat copper trend, 10 km east of the Kombat copper mine.
