Adavale holds 100% of the Kabanga Jirani Nickel Project Area located in Kagera, Tanzania. The company holds 7 granted licences plus 2 x “Luhuma” Farm-in licences contiguous to Adavale’s Kabanga North East adding a further 99km2 , totalling 1,244km2 (see table below), surrounding or proximal to one of the world’s largest undeveloped high-grade nickel sulphide resources of 58Mt @2.62% Nickel namely the Kabanga Nickel Deposit which is, located along the Karagwe-Ankolean system in Tanzania.

The highly prospective Kabanga-Musongati mafic-ultramafic alignment 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 also acquired the historical Exploration Data which had been conducted by BHP the UNDP as well as other data 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. The extensive data package covers much of the Kabanga / Kagera region and includes geochemical data including rock chip, soil and stream sediment sample results, high-level results of geophysical programs, geological maps and reports, previous drilling results and drill logs and relevant geological interpretation and reports.
Adavale’s additional geochemical and geophysical activities as well as maiden 3,000m Diamond and current RC drill testing program have unlocked several exciting targets and high priority corridors for continued exploration of mafic-ultramafic mineralised systems.
