Shefa Yamim currently has one exploration permit and two prospecting permits covering an area of more than 600 square km that includes the Kishon River, the volcanic bodies on Mount Carmel, the Zevulun and Yizre’el valleys and their margins – Menashe Hills, Tivon-Alonim Hills and Nazareth range.
Shefa Yamim holds a well-established Operational Site & Laboratories in Akko (total of 6,000 square metres) that has the capacity to process a range of sample sizes (more than 600 tonnes) for final mineral extraction, including washing, screening, sieving, mineral identification and definition.
To date the Company has carried out an extensive exploration programme and has delineated several potential primary sources and secondary deposits that host precious stones.
Currently the Company is focusing on mapping, drilling of boreholes and taking bulk samples at the Kishon Mid Reach placer, the Company’s priority target.
The Company has devised a mine-to-marketing strategy and plans to explore, mine and use its “Gem-Box” of precious stones to design unique and branded fine gemstone jewellery pieces from the Holy Land
