Cupric's work has concentrated on defining the Khoemacau Project's Zone 5 underground Cu-Ag resources, as well as the high-grade Cu potential of the district. The Company expanded its land position with the acquisition of the Boseto Property in 2015, and now controls 4,040 square kilometers of mining & exploration licenses in this highly prospective region of the Kalahari Copper Belt
A number of mineralized zones with MI&I resources have been identified by previous operators beyond Zone 5. 2015 exploration by Cupric led to the discovery of the Zone 5 North deposit. During 2016, in-fill and deep drilling on this deposit and the previously discovered Zeta NE delineated new high grade resources. As a result, these deposits present the next phase of development for Cupric, after Zone 5.
The district's MI&I contained metal totals 6.8 million tonnes of copper (over 14 billion pounds of contained copper) and 274 million ounces of silver. This substantial metal endowment over a large area is characteristic of sediment-hosted, stratiform Cu-Ag deposits and districts. Given this broad geologic context, high-grade upside in zones of Cu-Ag enrichment is the Company's ongoing exploration focus, along the 150km trend within Cupric's land position.
