Other Prospects

South Ridge, Toggenburg and Nosib H Prospects

South Ridge Prospect

The South Ridge prospect is located at the eastern end of the Pavian Trend, just 900 metres from the sealed Grootfontein-Tsumeb highway; it is approximately 6 kilometres to the east of the Border deposit. Sabre has discovered a broad zone of outcropping lead and zinc mineralisation, measuring around 1,500 x 50 m, during mapping of a geochemical anomaly at the South Ridge.

The mineralisation is composed of vein network and shear-hosted zinc-lead mineralisation and is similar in style and geometry to the Border deposit located to the west. The fresh galena and sphalerite mineralisation at South Ridge has now been mapped continuously for over 1.5 kilometres of strike and outcrops at the base of, and on the northern slopes of, a prominent hill.

A number of channel samples were undertaken across the outcropping mineralisation at South Ridge and returned very encouraging results:

SRCS0001 38 metres @ 4.04% Zn+Pb (1.42% Zinc + 2.62% Lead)

SRCS0002 23 metres @ 7.61% Zn+Pb (1.09% Zinc + 6.52% Lead)

Following the successful channel sampling program, a program of reconnaissance drilling was undertaken at South Ridge. An initial program of 17 Reverse Circulation (RC) holes was completed, with better results including:

SRRC 013 21 metres @ 1.53% Zn+Pb & 2.12 gpt Ag from 31 metres
   including 7 metres @ 3.11% Zn+Pb & 3.50 gpt Ag from 35 metres

SRRC 016 23 metres @ 1.07% Zn+Pb & 1.00 gpt Ag from 76 metres

This program was designed to confirm key attributes of the zinc-lead-silver mineralisation at South Ridge, in particular its orientation and mineralogy.


The Toggenburg prospect is located along strike from Sabre’s Border zinc-lead-silver deposit and is interpreted to be controlled by the same structures as Border. The Toggenburg prospect measures over 2.8 km long and up to 250 m wide, with maximum combined zinc and lead values in excess of 2.9 %.

The anomalies defined at Toggenburg, which are open to the east and west, have an area more than four times the size of the equivalent anomaly at Border, where a 0.1 % Zn+Pb cutoff in the near-surface approximates the footprint of zinc and lead sulphide mineralisation at depth. The JORC 2012 Inferred Resource at Border is 16.0 Mt @ 1.53 % Zn, 0.59 % Pb and 4.76 g/t Ag.

Nosib H

The Nosib H prospect is the largest zinc-lead geochemical anomaly on the Pavian Trend. The anomaly covers over 2 kilometres of strike along a prominent ridge line. The prospect area has had little drill testing and will be further evaluated as part of Sabre's Zinc-Lead exploration program.
