A 300 Meter Step-Out Hole KL23-29 Intercepted 15.1 Meters of Mineralization Grading 2.24% Nickel, 0.24% Copper, and 0.18% Cobalt

The Kabanga Camp and Special Mining Licence Are Now Connected to the Tanzanian National Power Grid

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lifezone Metals Limited’s (NYSE: LZM) Chief Executive Officer, Chris Showalter, is pleased to provide results from its 2023 Safari Link diamond drilling exploration program at its Kabanga Nickel Project located in north-west Tanzania. The 2023 exploration drilling program was designed to test for a continuation of the Tembo high-grade nickel mineralization into the Safari Link area, which comprises 1.4 kilometers of strike length north-east of the Tembo and the Safari zones.


KL23-29: 15.1 meters grading 2.24% nickel, 0.24% copper, and 0.18% cobalt, (2.83% nickel-equivalent). KL23-29 is located approximately 300 meters north-east of existing Mineral Resources at the Tembo Zone.

KL23-27: 7.0 meters grading 2.84% nickel, 0.30% copper, and 0.22% cobalt, (3.56% nickel-equivalent). KL23-27 is located approximately 150 meters north-east of existing Mineral Resources at the Tembo Zone.

A total of 11 drillholes were completed at the Safari Link area in 2023, of which 7 returned significant mineralized intercepts (refer to Table 1 below).

The Safari Link area spans the 1.4 kilometers strike length north-east of the Tembo Zone, incorporating the Safari Zone. Lifezone Metals’ geologists believe that the Safari Link area represents the best opportunity for future resource addition.

Mr. Showalter stated: “Not only is our Kabanga Nickel Project believed to be one of the world’s largest and highest-grade undeveloped nickel sulfide deposits, but we have also continued to show that there are new areas for nickel discovery and more potential for resource addition. We have achieved significant results from a limited drill program at Safari Link, and though it is too early to know if any high-grade nickel mineralization from Safari Link could be added into the Definitive Feasibility Study expected by the end of Q3 2024, we believe that Safari Link represents a near-term opportunity for resource and value addition.”

“As a clear example of our progress towards project development, and in partnership with the Government of Tanzania, we can announce that the Kabanga Camp is now connected into the Tanzanian national grid with a 33-kilovolt power line to the site. With Tanzania’s commitment to increasing the supply of clean, green hydroelectricity available on its national grid, we can expect Kabanga Camp activities to be powered by renewable energy in the near term.”

Safari Link Bridges the Gap Between Tembo and Safari Zones

An exploration drilling program was developed for the zone located north-east of the Tembo Zone (up to and including the Safari Zone), known as Safari Link. Previous drilling in the Tembo North and Safari zones showed the high potential for a continuation of mineralization along this trend. The Safari Link drilling program was designed to test for the presence of Tembo-style mineralization, as signaled by airborne EM/magnetics and ground EM coverage, which shows no significant gaps along strike to the north-east of Tembo.

Eleven exploration diamond drillholes totaling 7,424 meters were completed in 2023 at Safari Link. Seven of these holes returned assay results with significant intercepts of nickel mineralization located between 400 meters and 600 meters below surface. Exploration drilling was undertaken to test the boundaries of mineralization across the 1.0-kilometer gap between the Tembo and Safari zones. Lifezone Metals ceased exploration drilling in November 2023 after having successfully stepped out 300 meters north-east of Tembo North. An additional 700 meters of strike length remains unexplored by drilling to the north-east toward the Safari Zone. The Safari Zone itself has a strike length of approximately 400 meters (as indicated from 2007 borehole EM surveys) and has five widely spaced drillholes, each with mineralized intercepts.
