Toronto-based Madison Metals has started its maiden 2024 drill programme at the Khan project at Madison West in Namibia’s Erongo uranium province. 

In April, the company announced that it had embarked on a mapping programme ahead of the drill programme, which consisted of infill geological mapping, along with ground scintillometer and spectrometer surveys over several Anomaly 5 drill targets.

Madison’s original surveying was completed at 40 m line spacing with 10 m station spacing. The company added new drill targets at Anomaly 5 by surveying at 20 m line spacing.

Previously, Madison had reported surface sample assays at Anomaly 5, which included 9 m grading 0.25% triuranium octoxide (U3O8), including 1 m grading 1.28% U3O8, in Trench 4, 9 m grading 0.39% U3O8 in Trench 5 and 5 m grading 0.12% U3O8 in Trench 3.

The company said the assays from the six trenches confirmed the surface continuity of mineralised alaskites at Anomaly 5, with uranium grades above 0.1% U3O8.
