- Metal Tiger said its Kalahari copper joint venture in Botswana with MOD Resources was due to complete a mine feasibility study for the so-called T3 prospect by March.

The study was progressing well and within budget, Metal Tiger said.

The company owns a 30% stake in the project, while MOD owns the rest.

'T3 continues to surprise to the upside and, at each juncture, capitalises our belief that this is a highly economic and significant copper project,' chief executive Michael McNeilly said.

'The findings of the feasibility level metallurgical test work are particularly encouraging with the coarser grind metal recoveries supporting a reduction in anticipated capital, operational and power costs versus the pre-feasibility study stage model.'
