Draft from the Executive Summary of The Report on Exploration License EPL7167 in Namibia.
License EPL7167 as of June 2022 is under renewal for a period of three years. The R500 main focus in the license area focused on three trends in the license area with anomalies in uranium and possibly massive sulfide base metal (massive sulfide) mineralization.
SRK consider sufficient information exists to undertake work on the ground and this should focus on the identified trends with surface geochemical sampling then drilling
The Erongo Licence EPL7167
Single license in the Erongo region to the east of Swakopmund. The license contains evidence of Damara aged granite pegmatite- and palaeochannel hosted uranium mineralization and possibly massive base metal sulfide mineralization in Proterozoic metamorphosed sediments and volcanics. The area has current and historic mines for all three including the world class Rossing mine to the immediate west (390 Mt grading 0.022% U3O8) and Husab mine to the south west (446Mt at 0.048% U3O8 in Zone 1 and an additional inferred resource of 102Mt at 0.054% U3O8 in Zone 2). In addition the operating palaeochannel hosted uranium mine at Langer Heinrich is to the immediate south (71 Mt @ 0.06% U3O8).
Minimal geochemical surveys have been completed to date over EPL7167. The results of two grab samples collected by SRK provided confirmation of uranium anomalies (Table 2-3).

The combined results of the remote sensing and geochemical surveys to date suggest that there are two types of uranium mineralization present on the EPL:
• Rossing style alaskiite hosted uranium
• Calcrete or palaeochannel hosted uranium
