Sono Resources Exploration Program Harnesses Mobile Metal Ion Exploration Procedures to Assist in the Discovery of Ore Deposits at Depth on Its Copper/Silver Concession in Botswana, Africa
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Sono Resources Inc. (OTCQB-SRCI; the “Company” or “Sono”) is exploring for copper/silver mineralization in the Kalahari Copper Belt, which has an overlying thick blanket of Kalahari sand cover. The Company is implementing a complementary exploration technique, namely analyzing for mobile metal ions – a method using soil samples to detect mineralization at depth where small concentrations of metals coating sand grains are brought to the surface by the action of water in the soil.
The procedure of analyzing mobile metal ions or MMI is used to chemically strip off the adhered elements, which have migrated upwards from depth, from the surface of soil grains and then determine the low-level range of metal ion concentrations, which are commonly in the parts per billion range.
By measuring mobile metal ions in surface soils, the technology has provided sharp anomalies over deeper seated ore deposits below the Kalahari in other areas. Utilizing this method, the Company anticipates reducing exploration costs by improving target generation for follow-up high resolution airborne and ground geophysics and drilling. These combined procedures will enhance the expectations of locating copper/silver mineralization on the Company’s licenses in the Kalahari Copper Belt.
The area where the Sono licenses are located in the Kalahari Copper Belt has been widely characterized as the southwesterly extension of the Zambian/DRC Copper Belt extending through Botswana and into Namibia. The belt is home to many producing copper mines and many more recent and successful exploration activities.
