Apollo Minerals Limited (ASX:AON) has commenced an airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey at the province-scale Kroussou zinc-lead (ZnPb) project in Gabon.
The AEM survey, utilising the helicopter-borne Xcite AEM system, will cover the entire Kroussou prospective trend including all 18 Target Prospects along the 80km strike length.
The survey will be the first time that modern airborne geophysics have been undertaken at Kroussou and has the potential to identify and refine shallow, embayment-style, high-grade mineralisation targets like those discovered at Dikaki (TP11) and Niamabimbou (TP6).
The AEM survey will also extend into the western basin region, which is interpreted as being a potential source for the base metal mineralisation at Kroussou. The western basin region is also prospective for high-grade mineralisation and has not previously had systematic exploration undertaken.
Apollo Minerals is currently actively drilling at TP13 and TP11 and expects to have additional exploration drilling results available in the upcoming weeks.
“This AEM survey is a major step forward for our regional-scale exploration activities at Kroussou and has been in the planning since the start of the year. The results from the survey will enable us to test the entire 80km Kroussou trend, identify and refine exploration targets, and provide valuable structural targeting information,” Managing Director, Neil Inwood, said.
