About the Company
Mukuba is a Canadian mining company focused on the exploration and
development of the Northcore Project, which is located in the highly
prospective Central African Copperbelt region of Central Zambia. Mukuba
holds a 100% interest in the Northcore Project which is licensed for
both copper and cobalt and encompasses approximately 2,274 square km of
geologically prospective ground in the Domes Region of the Zambian
Copperbelt. Geological mapping, soil sampling and investigation of the
historical showings as well as ground-truthing of the geological
surveying results have confirmed existing historical geological
anomalies, and identified new anomalies. Encouraging intersections from
numerous boreholes during the Company's 2010 exploration program
confirmed the presence of copper mineralization.
Mukuba also has an exclusive Option Agreement between Lukusashi and
Lunga Resources Limited ("Lunga"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mukuba
Resources Limited, to purchase an 85% interest in the Nyimba Project
license rights (see Press Release dated September 16, 2010) located
near the town of Nyimba approximately 300 km east of Lusaka, Zambia.
The Nyimba Project is well advanced and substantial exploration work
has been completed to date. The polymetallic deposits at Nyimba host
zinc, with copper, lead, molybdenum, silver and gold and were
systematically explored and partially drilled by Minex (Mindeco), a
Zambian government department in the late 1970's and early 1980's and
were later acquired by Rio Tinto-Zinc Corporation (RTZ-now Rio Tinto)
in 1994. Mukuba continues to assess historic exploration records which
indicate there are five defined areas of mineralization within the 500
square kilometre license area. The most prospective area appears to be
Chipirinyuma, where soil sampling by Minex and Rio Tinto defined a
surface anomaly measuring 3.5 km by 1.2 km and drilling by Mukuba
confirmed base metal mineralization.
