Otavi Mountain Land Projects

 Otavi Mountain Land Licences with main prospects and mineralised trends

The Otavi Mountain Land is a highly prospective, underexplored area in northern Namibia which has potential for high-value copper mineralisation, stratabound zinc-lead mineralisation and vanadium deposits.

The Otavi Mountain Land contains numerous historic mines, including the Tsumeb copper-lead-zinc mine and smelter complex, plus the Kombat copper mine. These mines are currently on care and maintenance, however, the Tsumeb copper smelter remains one of only five operating copper smelters in Africa. The presence of these mines and other significant historical mining and processing operations has resulted in the provision of excellent infrastructure throughout the region.

The Otavi Mountain Land Project comprises two tenements, EPL 3540 (SBR 80%) and EPL 3542 (SBR 70%), which cover about 172.5km2 of the ‘Otavi Triangle’. Renewal applications for EPL3540 and EPL3542 have been granted for an additional two-year term and will now expire in May 2021.

The Company is actively exploring its licence areas in Namibia, with an ongoing program of drilling, soil sampling, trench sampling, underground sampling, geophysics and mapping being conducted by the Company's geologists.

The objective of the exploration program is the discovery of significant mineralisation on the Company’s licences through the systematic application of modern exploration techniques.

In the December 2019 quarter, Sabre conducted sampling of the historic Utisab workings. Reconnaissance work and sampling of historic workings have continued in the March 2020 quarter, with sampling programs completed at the Baltika and Lucas Post prospects. Results of the sampling will be reported when all the assay results have been received and interpreted.

At the historic Lucas Post workings, rock chip samples were taken on a grid pattern to test the grade of the surface stockpiles and dumps. Results will be announced when all assay results have been received and interpreted.
