Lucas Post Copper-Vanadium Trend
The Lucas Post Trend lies on EPL 3542 (SBR 70%) and covers more than 25 kilometres of strike, immediately to the north of the Hoek Zinc-Lead Trend. The Lucas Post Trend takes in a number of highly prospective copper targets, including Rooikat in the west through to Jagers in the east.

These copper targets include a number of historical mining areas, as well as conceptual targets generated by Sabre. The trend hosts some rare styles of mineralisation, including late stage lead-vanadium mineralisation in the near-surface environment, which shows a strong association with earlier, deeper seated, sulphide mineralisation. The central portion of the trend is dominated by the recent Kaskara discovery.
Kaskara was highlighted by conceptual targeting undertaken by Sabre and its consultants, in particular Douglas Haynes. Kaskara is a mineralised lithological & structural target, which appears to be similar to the nearby Tsumeb copper deposit (24.9 Mt @ 5.5% Cu 11.8% Pb & 171 gpt Ag), located less than 40 km to the north.
