Kavango Resources (LON:KAV) Licence Renewals and 1 New KSZ Licence Issued

Botswana focussed metals exploration company Kavango Resources plc (LSE:KAV) (“Kavango”) announces the renewal of 5 Prospecting Licences (“PLs”) in the Kalahari Suture Zone (“KSZ”) and one PL at the Ditau Project. In addition, the Company has also been awarded one new PL in the KSZ.

Kavango’s total mineral rights in Botswana now cover 14,316km2.

Ben Turney, Chief Executive Officer of Kavango Resources, commented:

“The renewal of six of our prospecting licences and the issue of one additional licence by the Department of Mines enables Kavango to plan a substantial work program across its portfolio, as well as advance discussions with potential partners.

Securing the six Kalahari Suture Zone licences is particularly important, as it confirm Kavango’s strategic hold over this large-scale nickel/copper exploration project.

With its strategically significant mineral rights package, Kavango is well placed to become a major player in the Botswanan metals’ exploration space. We look forward to advancing our projects and making significant discoveries over the coming years.”
