Metallon’s three mines have potential for further exploration with open-ended depth extensions.
At Mazowe Mine, there are conceptual targets which are currently under review.
The mineralisation at Mazowe mine is collectively hosted by granodiorite stock and feldspar porphyries, with a similar style of mineralisation. These lithologies are host to multitudes of narrow, sub-parallel mineralised shear zones which form an imbricate thrust shear zone system. To date, more than 15 sub parallel shear zones have been identified. These shear zones strike east west and dip to the north at 10 to 50 degrees. There is potential for additional reefs. The conceptual target size is approximately 2.5-3 million ounces.

At Redwing Mine, there is approximately 3.5-8 million ounces of potential. These targets are situated in rich quartz veins, and offer additional exploration upside potential.
