Full base recommendation


In order to determine the geomorphological and neotectonic conditions of MAGNUM LINK (SL) LIMITED’s license area, the following primary information was used:

  •  Topographical base with scale of 1:50 000 (for the licensed area)
  •  The latest data of the radar mapping ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model Version 2 (ASTER GDEM 2) being METI and NASA products;
  •  The latest data of 1-3 second the radar mapping Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM);
  •  Multi zonal medium-resolution space images Landsat ETM+.

The project area features quite homogenous geomorphological and neotectonic conditions. Two tectonic zones were detected within the area: central zone in the form of a hilly plain with positive elevation values and north-western zone separated from the central one by the system of tertiary arc-wise and linear elements which forms the fault zone. The area has two water outlets: northern and southern ones. Within the northern outlet there are outlined basins of the rivers; Makuranko, Makoungi, Matiri and the Gbonkobon. Within the southern outlet are outlined basins of the rivers the Mabokotona and the Matui.

Within the licensed area MAGNUM LINK(SL) LIMITED, the results of decoding and analysis of geomorphological and neotectonic conditions were able to outlined fifteen (15) prospective areas for ultimate mineralization and nine (9) other areas with possible kimberlite pipe like locations. Moreover, there are outlined modern fluvial (river) network areas being favourable for concentration of valuable elements in the modern alluvial deposits.

eme Point Levels with Alluvial Deposit Forecasting

In order to assess the area prospectivity, primary verification is therefore recommended in order to identify the favourable points for heavy residue production and creation of deposit under Nos. 02, 03, 04, 06, 08, 10 in the graphical supplement. The presence of the valuable elements in the abovementioned areas shall give the unanimous image of the area prospectivity. Also, in order to assess prospectivity of the area outlined in the process of ERS data decoding, geomorphological and neotectonic analysis, it is necessary to instigate field traverses within the prospective areas for the purpose of obtaining the primary geological information about the geological structures.

The data represented in this present report do not entirely guarantee location of sources in the predicted areas but serves as the additional criteria for the concentration of exploration work which will optimize time and financial expenses in the exploration and evaluation works.

In order to also perform exploration and evaluation works, it is recommended to acquire multispectral high-resolution space images which allows to have perfect resolution for ground investigation during exploration works and to localize additional probable sources and ore occurrences (see Figure 1 and Figure 2).
