Adavale to begin maiden Mundowdna uranium exploration

Adavale Resources (ASX:ADD) has scheduled ground surveys for mid-March 2024 at its Mundowdna and Mundowdna South projects in South Australia.

The company says notice of entry has been submitted to both native title holders and pastoral station owners ahead of the initial uranium exploration. 

Key contractors and field crews are now planning for site exploration activities.

Executive Director David Riekie says the upcoming program will provide a ‘significant’ amount of information on the flagged palaeochannels and the potential they contain.   

“The submission of the notice of entry is the key step in getting the exploration program underway.

The presence of uranium in historic rock chips provides a line of evidence that indicates the area to be prospective. The near term goal is for Adavale to repeat these results and confirm the uranium is present upstream of these areas and the potential of the Mundowdna licences.”

The planned exploration activities incorporate the collection of about 800 soil and rock chip samples, gamma survey, and ground gravity readings along existing pastoral tracks. 

Soil samples will be analysed at Intertek in Perth using an ionic leach method. 

Adavale Resources is a nickel sulphide explorer that holds 100% of the Kabanga Jirani Nickel Project, a portfolio of 12 ‘highly prospective’ granted licences covering 1,216km-square along the Karagwe-Ankolean belt in Tanzania.
