Apollo Minerals (ASX:AON)
Apollo Minerals (ASX:AON) is a responsible exploration and development company focused on the Kroussou zinc-lead Project in Gabon.
The Krossou Project represents a significant, large scale, near surface project with exploration to date validating the province-scale base metal potential.
Previous exploration work has resulted in the identification of 150 zinc-lead mineral occurrences over more than 70km of strike length of prospective geology within the project area.
The mineral occurrences are associated with 18 channels (prospects), each of which is considered a priority exploration target. Only four of these 18 prospects have been drill tested to date, with zinc-lead mineralisation being intersected at very shallow depths at all four prospects.
A strong pipeline of news flow is expected as the Company commences an exploration program at the Kroussou Project, including drilling to delineate the Projects scale.
Initial exploration will focus on defining sufficient shallow (open-pittable), high grade zinc-lead mineralisation to justify commencement of feasibility studies.
