Drilling commences at Mabale Hills Project

  Sub-Sahara Resources has advised that drilling has commenced on the Mwamazengo prospect (Mabale Hills project) which forms part of the Lake Victoria Joint Venture with Canadian-listed Currie Rose Resources Inc.Ground work in preparation for drilling has been ongoing at Mwamazengo and the current drill program will test the extension of mineralization at depth and the potential southern extension of the discovery. A multi-purpose drill will provide both Reverse Circulation (RC) and diamond drilling capabilities so as to return the best possible result.Orevious drilling at Mwamazengo returned good results and a first pass drill program at the Dhahabu prospect, located 5km north of Mwamazengo, returned one significant result (MBNR024). Trenching and geophysics are currently underway with further drilling planned for later this year.Michael Griffiths, Managing Director of Sub-Sahara Resources said, “The recent drill results from Mwamazengo and Dhahabu have demonstrated the prospectivity of the area and we look forward to expanding on these results with this current drill program to further unlock the potential of the Mabale Hills project.”The results from the drilling program will be announced over the coming weeks.
