- Metal Tiger said its Botswana joint venture with MOD Resources had intersected what appeared to be a significant copper sulphide mineralisation from a drill hole at the Kalahari copper belt.

Strong visible copper mineralisation was intersected in veins currently over a 67m downhole interval commencing from 232m to 299m downhole depth, the company said.

The drill was continuing to a deeper depth and other holes were planned.

'We are delighted to report that the latest drill hole testing the core of the A4 Dome has intersected what looks to be significant copper sulphide mineralisation,' chief executive Michael McNeilly said.

'The onsite geologists are particularly excited by the stockwork morphology of the mineralisation, which is a style previously unseen by the JV drilling.'

'This has further implications in that the A4 Dome appears to be an intact dome, so any vein hosted mineralisation deposited within the dome should still be there. Everyone is looking forward to receiving the assay results.'
