Full work programme for next exploration year


Exploration will be carried out in three phases over the next twelve (12) months. However, this plan is subject to amendment based on climatic conditions affecting accessibility to parts of the license area and other unforeseen circumstances.


Onsite Verification of the Interpreted Remote Sensing Data

Technical staff of Magnum Link (SL) Ltd had reviewed the recommendations of the results of the RSD and would proceed to plan the next phase of exploration based on available facts. Ground truthing investigation in areas regarded as highly prospective and the possible kimberlite pipe bodies will be located and verified through instigating systematic sampling programme. The information generated and vectorized against different backgrounds from that analysis will be useful in decision making and planning processes and in trying to understand the geological characterisation and style of mineralogy in the area further. A possible structural interpretation and the temporal relationship with faults, joints, fractures and contact between lithological distinction would be determined and interpreted.


Onsite Confirmation of Geophysical Anomalies

This phase will include the following:

  •  Further literature searches to collect data and all relevant information pertaining to the economic and structural geology of the area. Reports of historic work in the area will also be collected;
  •  Establishment of a base camp for geophysical operation to commence;
  •  Mobilization of geophysical crew to the project site;
  •  May consider to instigate the use of electro-magnetic geophysical methods to collect more accurate data;
  •  Data interpretation and reporting of the final results.


Ground Truthing/Confirmation Programme

This phase of the exploration work would include but not limited to the following:

  •  Hiring and mobilization of Sierra Leonean technical team for this phase of the project;
  •  A systematic approach to test the result of the geophysical activities undertaken from surveys by confirming anomalies on the ground;
  •  Recording and reporting geological features in order to geological map the license area more precisely and effectively;
  •  Hi-lighting areas for additional ground work, including identification of potential pit, trench and drilling sites;
  •  Reporting of activities and results.
