Bezant Resources sees potential in Zambia after initial assessment

“The Zambian IOCG province has to date been under-explored due to the existing production hub centred around the country's main historic copper belt."

Bezant Resources PLC (LON:BZT) is to carry out further exploration at its Buffalo copper/gold option in Zambia after identifying possible extensions to the existing mine pit. 

A review of the historic data and site visit suggests that the steeply-dipping target shear zone is open at depth and to the southwest into the Buffalo hill. 

Mapping of the pit and surrounding area is now planned alongside sampling and trenching, which might lead eventually to a drill programme. 

One of the key elements of this further work will be to compare the data obtained from the site visit with the known characteristics of the existing mining operations in the region, said Bezant. 

Laurence Read, chief executive, added: "In addition to assessing the potential for extensions at depth and across the licence area, our key ongoing work will centre on the characteristics of Buffalo as an ore body.
