Jervois completed its planned drill programme at its Kilembe area properties in central and western Uganda, and following receipt of assays from Q4 2020 exploration, announced the results on 27 January 2021.
Drilling at the Kilembe area properties targeted surficial Au-Cu mineralisation detected through earlier geochemical programmes. In total, 1,905 metres of diamond drilling was completed in 17 holes drilled at the Kilembe area properties in 2019 and 10 holes in 2020, totalling 1,409m.
All exploration activities in Uganda have been suspended due to a combination of ongoing COVID-19 risks, political and regulatory developments in-country and results to date at Bujagali which do not meet mineralisation model expectations for copper-cobalt ore deposits. Jervois is initiating a partnering process for its Ugandan exploration portfolio and in particular its Kilembe area properties.
