- Savannah Resources said the final results for the resource drilling programme at the Mahab 4 prospect in Block 5, Oman, have now been received.

In addition, a new four drill hole drilling programme has commenced at the Aarja/Dog's Bone prospect in the highly prospective Block 4 licence area, Oman.

Savannah is earning a 65% shareholding in the Omani company, Al Thuraya LLC, the owner of the Block 4 Project and is a 65% shareholder in Al Fairuz Mining, the holder of the Block 5 licence.


- Final results have now been received from Mahab Resource Drilling with 16B5DD018 returning a result of 14.25m at 3.86% copper, 0.62% zinc and 0.22g/t gold from 109.1m

- This new result complements previously released results, as announced on 31 October 2016 and 12 September 2016, including Mahab 4 and Maqail South;

- Mahab 4: 16B5DD009: 67.4m at 4.64% copper, 1.13% zinc and 0.3g/t gold from 18.6m incl. 35.4m at 8.30% copper, 2.1% zinc and 0.4g/t gold from 18.6m; 16B5DD017: 47m at 6.07% copper, 1.43% zinc and 0.3g/t gold from 52m; drilled oblique to section to maximise sample size for metallurgical test work

- Maqail South: 16B5DD001: 25.63m at 2.66% copper and 0.1g/t gold from 49.37m; 16B5DD001A: 20.55m at 3.09% copper and 0.1g/t gold from 48.95m

- The results of the completed drill programme point towards robust zones of VMS mineralisation at both Mahab 4 and Maqail South, with potential to extend the high grade portion of the current Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.7Mt at 2.2% copper - updated estimate is expected Q4 2016

- A new 600m diamond drilling programme is now underway targeting areas of known mineralisation to establish a JORC compliant mineral resource estimate at the Dog's Bone lens, which is part of the Aarja deposit.
