Kambal International – Block 78



Aurum spent 2015 working on an exploration strategy covering 2500 sq. km on Block 78 for Kambal International. The Kambal licence is in Eastern Sudan adjacent to the Eritrean Border 120km north of the city of Kassala. The area has huge potential for gold and is heavily worked by local artisanal miners in many locations.

During 2015 Aurum planned and supervised a series of exploration programmes developing targets across the block this included mapping, prospecting and trenching at six of the best localities prior to planning and executing a 3,700m drilling programme characterising the styles of mineralization seen at each of the localities. Whilst most of the mineralization relates to orogenic lode gold systems we are also on the lookout for VMS zones with surficial gold rich gossans.

The work has continued into 2016 where Vaughan Williams spent most of February initially out at camp working with the local technical team and then in Khartoum where he attended the Sudan International Mining Business Forum & Exhibition flying the flag for Aurum over three days at both the conference as a speaker and also the exhibitors’ hall. He was also chosen as one of five delegates to be taken to the Sudan Parliament building to form part of a delegation to make representations to the Parliamentary Sub-committee for Mining.
