UGANDA

Part of the Congo Craton wedged between producing goldfields in the eastern DRC and northern Tanzania

Permitting processes and legal tenure clearly set out in the law
Encouraging the development of its mineral sector Has invested heavily with World Bank and NDF supported airborne data surveys (SMMRP) A number of our targets host past and current artisanal workings High levels of international and local interest in the mineral sector Functional infrastructure, upgrades to road and power networks ongoing 2

OUR FOCUS AT KAMALENGE

Regional and Detailed Exploration for GOLD and IOCG Type Deposits
Minimum of 4 magnetic lineaments defined at Kamalenge for exploration and mining. 13 hard rock Gold & IOCG areas defined at Kamalenge by Trenching and Soils Geochemistry. 1 hard rock zone defined at Kamalenge for mining (Targets 1,2 and 3) with a preliminary resource of 45,000 tonnes at 6.2 g/t (Target 1).

Airborne Magnetic Trends Related to Current Defined Targets


The GMU License Areas are shown compared with the magnetic anomalies defining a minimum of 4 possible zones of mineralisation.

Kamalenge Mining Area

The aero-magnetic anomalies vary between 8 and 16 km in length are part of a larger structure which is in excess of 25 km the Lusaba Shear.
The Kamalenge Mining License represents 6 km2 within a potential area of 150 km2.
Scale Each quadrangle is 4 x 4 km

32 km

Scale Each quadrangle is 500 x 500 m2

SOIL GEOCHEMISTRY SIGNATURES All 13 defined Target Areas based on the Au (Cu, As, Pd) signature (Yellow)

and the IOCG (Cu, U, Au, Ag, LREEs Light Rare Earths) signature (Brown).
Targets B through to H still have to be investigated. Detailed sampling and trial mining in progress on Target 1.
