Kavango Resources PLC - Southern Africa-focused metals explorer - Says it has begun its IP surveys over four prospects at its Hillside gold project in Zimbabwe. Says the surveys are designed to identify sulphide bodies associated with high-grade gold-bearing shear structures related to historic and artisanal workings. Adds that four diamond core holes have been completed for a total of 1,306 metres at four prospects at Hillside, noting that visual observations from the cores are "encouraging". The samples are awaiting export permission for assay testing. An additional 1,400m of diamond drilling is planned to test targets identified by the current IP survey programme and extend intersections observed in recent drilling. Chief Executive Officer Ben Turney says: "IP surveys can be used to map underground metal mineralisation that is associated with gold. This can be a powerful exploration tool to plot the extent of possible ore bodies. The extra IP data will help guide future drilling, by providing Kavango with focused target areas."
