Adavale’s Nickel Licences – Tanzania

The highly prospective Kabanga-Musongati mafic-ultramafic belt occurs in the Meso-Proterozoic Kibaran Orogenic Belt, along 350 km with a northeast-southwest trend in North West Tanzania.  The intrusions were emplaced into pelitic sediments of the Karagwe-Ankolean Supergroups that accumulated during the early rifting phase of the Kibaran orogeny and contain important nickel sulphide ores and the reef-type platinum group element concentrations.

Adavale acquired the historical Exploration Data which had been conducted by BHP and the UNDP from the mid 1970’s to 2008. This data was used to select the licences where the companies Geology team and Consultants considered highly prospective.
