JOHANNESBURG ( – JSE-listed Kiwara has verified the presence of high-grade nickel sulphide minerals at its Kawako project, in Zambia.

The company on Thursday stated that various analytical techniques, by independent laboratories had also confirmed that there were no elements, which might adversely affect mining or processing in the area.

The nickel-in-soil anomaly associated with the drill-intersected nickel mineralisation has been identified over at least 1,2 km of strike and is open-ended along strike and depth.

"We are extremely pleased that the follow-up work conducted has confirmed the initial result and our original prognosis. Having confirmed the results, we are currently defining the model prior to implementing an aggressive exploration programme," said Kiwara chairperson Colin Bird.
