- Gold exploration firm KEFI Minerals has started field work on its Hawiah Prospect in Saudi Arabia.

Modelling of these geophysical survey results should provide a robust interpretation of the geometry of any possible sulphide mineralisation allowing for a more accurate drill design and targeting.

The Hawiah is located in Saudi Arabia's Wadi Bidah Mineral District, a 120-kilometre-long copper-gold-zinc volcanogenic massive sulphide belt where over 24 VMS occurrences were defined by the US Geological Survey and French Geological Survey.

KEFI is part of a joint venture that holds a dominant position on this ground.

A follow-up trenching programme is planned to commence following completion of this geophysical survey.

Harry Anagnostaras-Adams, chairman of KEFI Minerals said he is 'pleased that exploration is progressing again at Hawiah in Saudi Arabia and is planned to culminate in drilling this exciting prospect in Q3 2019.'
