Sono Resources Inc., the Canadian company, said it has begun calling for drilling tenders in preparation for a diamond drilling program beginning this month on its tenements in Botswana.
It said in an update that the drill targets will be selected from a combination of the targets generated from the recently completed high-resolution airborne magnetic survey and conventional soil geochemical soil surveys on its 100 percent owned Bonnyridge Copper/Silver property located in north-western Botswana, Africa.
“The drilling program will be designed to test for the presence of sediment-hosted copper / silver mineralisation at depth and along strike,” it said.
The Bonnyridge Property is located within the central portion of the Kalahari Copper Belt (“KCB”) in Botswana.
The KCB is widely characterized as the south-westerly extension of the Zambian/DRC Copper Belt extending through Botswana and into Namibia.
The KCB is home to many producing copper mines located in Namibia and many more recent and successful exploration activities, including planned production in 2012 in Botswana.
Sono Resources Inc. is a mineral exploration company seeking to acquire, explore and develop highly prospective metal projects in Africa.
Its core project is the 100 percent owned Bonnyridge prospect located in north-western Botswana, Africa.
Bonnyridge consists of three contiguous license blocks which cover 2965.6 square kilometres and is in the centre of the Kgalagadi Copper Belt, recognized as one of the largest copper belts in the world.
