Serengeti Completes 2020 Drilling Program at Kwanika: Resource & Exploration Upside Successfully Identified

20.10.2020  |  GlobeNewswire

VANCOUVER, Oct. 20, 2020 - Serengeti Resources Inc. (SIR: TSX-V) ("Serengeti" or "the Company") reports that additional mineralized zones have been intersected in resource step-out drillholes at Kwanika, and the drilling program is now complete for 2020. A total of 4,350 metres were drilled in 9 holes testing a number of exploration targets and resource expansion opportunities. All core samples have been shipped to the analytical laboratory and all results are pending. The advanced resource-stage Kwanika project is ~26,000 hectares, held by Kwanika Copper Corporation (KCC)* and is located in the northern Quesnel Trough of British Columbia which hosts numerous porphyry copper-gold deposits.


  • A total of 9 drill holes for 4,350 metres, tested five exploration and resource expansion targets.
  • Holes K-197 and K-202 expanded mineralization south from Central Zone resource along the Central Fault and demonstrates it remains open in that direction.
  • Hole K-198 yielded a long mineralized interval within and below the proposed mining shape, and encountered the bounding fault further west than anticipated, potentially expanding the Central Zone underground mining shape**.
  • K-201 confirms near surface continuity of Cu-Mo mineralization within the South Zone resource.
  • K-196 intersected two mineralized intervals, including a new at one at depth, 500 m north of the Central Zone, opening exploration potential in that direction.

David Moore, President and CEO of Serengeti commented, We look forward to receiving the assay results from the recently completed program and these will be released in batches beginning with the first two holes when they are available from the laboratory. We believe turning the focus at Kwanika back to exploration and resource expansion this year will be successful in adding value to the project. The Serengeti team set out to demonstrate upside at Kwanika and believe those objectives were accomplished by demonstrating that the Central Zone resource remains open for expansion to the south and furthermore determined that a bounding fault that limits the resource to the west, lies further west than previously modeled, hence potentially bringing already identified resource into an eventual mine plan. The South Zone was also tested for near surface better grade material and a deep target to the north of the Central Zone continues to offer the possibility of additional resource discoveries on the property. Adding additional exploration upside, geophysics at the Rottacker target, 22 km to the south has identified an IP chargeability anomaly coincident with a previously identified geological and geochemical target and now represents a high priority target for future drilling.

Hole ID Length
K-196 861 Two zones of strong potassic alteration; presence of Cu-sulphides confirmed by XRF
K-197 419 Strong potassic alteration; intercept of Cu-sulphides confirmed by XRF
K-198 965 Long intercept of Cu sulphides confirmed by XRF; Intersected Pinchi Fault further west than anticipated
K-199 170 Hole deviated more than anticipated; hole abandoned
K-200 278 Central Zone/Central Fault – South; intersected narrow interval of Cu sulphide at faulted unconformity
K-201 202 South Zone West Fault; near surface intercept of Cu-Mo sulphides confirmed by XRF
K-202 426 Central Zone/Central Fault – South; Cu sulphide intercept confirmed by XRF
K-203 179 Pinchi Fault – South; geophysical target tested, no mineralization encountered
K-204 851 Central Zone/Central Fault – North; at depth, largely intersected a dyke swarm interpreted to lie east of the mineralized domain

*Serengeti is sole funding this year’s Kwanika program. As a consequence, the Company’s ownership of KCC will increase to approximately 67%, with POSCO International Corp. holding ~33%.
