Sono Releases First Phase High Resolution Airborne Magnetics Interpretation in Preparation for Its 2012 Drilling Program on the Bonnyridge Copper/Silver Exploration Licenses in Botswana, Africa
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Sono Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCI) (the “Company” or “Sono”) announces that the first definitive drilling targets have been generated from the interpretation of the data of the high resolution airborne magnetic (“HRAM”) survey which was recently acquired.
The results of the HRAM are of high quality and provide invaluable insight into the structural and geological setting. It would appear from the interpretation of the data that the geological evolution of this portion of the Kalahari Copper Belt (“KCB”) underwent two tectonic episodes: one, a simple compressive regime, which generated the ubiquitous synclines and anticlines observed throughout the belt, followed by a later compression from a possible left lateral regional shear couple. This second episode has overprinted many Reidel structural elements and thrusting.
Company geologist, Luc Antoine states, “The geology of the Bonnyridge License Blocks is all structurally controlled and the HRAM allows us better insight into interpretation. Encouragingly, several of the priority targets from the HRAM data interpretation coincide with the geophysical anomalies.”
A detailed HRAM Map with drill targets is available for online viewing here (http://tinyurl.com/7j2vtg8).
Sono engaged Dewet Drilling of Botswana in late November to utilize its 50 years of drilling experience in the region to handle the Company’s phase one drilling program. The drilling program is being designed to test for the presence of sediment-hosted copper/silver mineralization at five of the initial target locations. It is slated to begin early January 2012.
The Bonnyridge Property is located within the central portion of the Kalahari Copper Belt in Botswana. The KCB is widely characterized as the southwesterly extension of the Zambian/DRC Copper Belt extending through Botswana and into Namibia.
