Sama Resources Begins Aerial Radiometric and Magnetometer Survey at Samapleu, Lola Projects

Sama Resources, a growth-oriented resource company in West Africa, has reported that the company has started a 13,500 line-km aerial radiometric and magnetometer survey at the Lola and Samapleu projects.

An aircraft has been mobilized by Xcalibur Airborne Geophysics (XAG) from the Republic of South Africa, adjacent to the Samapleu project location and XAG has commenced collecting the data. The Lola project’s east portions and the complete license of the Samapleu project in Côte d'Ivoire will be covered in the airborne survey.

This aerial survey will help the company’s geological analysis of the complete area of Lola-Samapleu project. The survey will highlight the discovery of further structural and geological controls with the possibility for huge chromites mineralization and copper-nickel sulphide mineralization.

XAG employs a Turbine Islander aircraft, which is fitted with RMS AARC 500 Compensator and two magnetometer Geometrics G823 Cesium Vapour sensors. An Exploranium GR 820 gamma ray spectrometer together with 32 l crystal packs is used to measure the radiometric emissions.

Currently, the company includes the Lola Project and the Samapleu project in its exploration phase. This Samapleu property is a joint venture between Sama Nickel and Société pour le Développement Minier de Côte d'Ivoire. Sama possesses the exploration licenses for Guinea-based Lola project.
