Project Overview

The 39.1km2 Ouarzazate Project is comprised of three licence blocks situated in the Anti-Atlas terrain of north-central Morocco, approximately 20km west of the Company‚Äôs Agdz Project, 30km south of the city Ouarzazate and 350km south of the capital Rabat.

Exploration Programme

A number of artisanal mine workings have been discovered by the Company which are interpreted to have been exploiting barite, due to the abundance of related spoil. Copper mineralisation has also been observed, both disseminated within rock and on fracture surfaces.

Further work at the Ouarzazate Project is planned to include rock chip sampling and geological mapping to identify the scale and the nature of the mineralisation.
