Hagenhof Copper-Cobalt Project
- The Hagenhof Copper-Cobalt Project is a highly prospective copper-cobalt project, hosted within a major structural setting, within the Damara Belt in central northern Namibia.
- Hagenhof has potential to host large scale sediment hosted copper-cobalt mineralisation
- Exploration licence covers a total of 197km² and is 100% owned
- Outcropping mineralisation mapped and sampled by Tanga during a recent field trip, with visible malachite mineralisation from surface samples returning significant copper, cobalt and gold assays, including:
- 3.24% Cu and 303ppm Co (Sample 71496)
- 2.97% Cu and 221ppm Co (Sample 71498)
- 2.4% Cu and 230ppm Co (Sample 71497)
- 1.98% Cu, 244ppm Co and 0.6 g/t Au (Sample 71499)
- Numerous historical stream sediment copper anomalies never followed up
- Major north-south regional magnetic structure with no previous exploration outside the main gossan
About Hagenhof Copper-Cobalt Project
The Hagenhof Copper-Cobalt Project is a granted exploration permit covering 197.26km² in central northern Namibia, approximately 200km northwest of the capital, Windhoek and approximately 80km west of the Joumbira Zinc Project.
The copper-cobalt mineralisation at Hagenhof is hosted within calc-silicate rocks, quartz-biotite schists, black shale and folded dolomite, within the Okonguarri Formation of the NeoProterozoic Swakop Group of the Damaran Metallogenic Belt, which runs through central Namibia.
Structural mapping completed at Hagenhof by Phelps Dodge Exploration Co. Ltd and TG Exploration Ltd shows the copper mineralisation to be hosted within the axial planes of steep, overturned east-north-east striking anticlines, cut by later north-north-east trending cross folds.
The host rock is sheared with tight, asymmetric fold patterns which can be seen from the regional satellite imagery over Hagenhof Copper-Cobalt Project (Refer to Figure 3), with the regional aeromagnetic data showing a major north-south trending structure with north-east trending cross faults.
