Details of the airborne survey work
Xcalibur Airborne Geophysics (XAG) from South Africa performed a detailed high resolution airborne geophysical survey. XAG used an Air Tractor system for the execution of this survey.
-- The survey consisted of a total of approximately 6,752 line-km.-- The nominal survey height was 25 meters above ground level.-- The survey was flown at 100 meter line-spacing with tie-line spacing of 1,000 meters.-- Survey groundspeed was approximately 240 km/hr resulting in a magnetic sample spacing of approximately 3.5 meters.-- Line direction was 0 degrees /180 degrees in the UTM35S system.-- Tie-line direction was 90 degrees /270 degrees in the UTM35S system
Magnetic data was collected with two Geometrics G823 Cesium Vapor sensors. The data was recorded at a resolution of 0.001nT and the rate of recording was 20Hz (twenty times per second).
Compensation to remove aircraft effects was done with a RMS AARC-500 Compensator. Horizontal navigation was carried out using an AGNAV LINAV system driven by real-time differential GPS. Vertical navigation was carried out with a laser altimeter. Navigational accuracy was better than 5 meters.
The natural gamma-ray emissions from the ground were measured by a 256 channel Radiation Solutions RS-500 advanced digital gamma-ray spectrometer using 8 crystals totaling a volume of 32 litres. Data was recorded at a rate of 2 Hz.
About the Jwaneng South Project
The Jwaneng South Project covers 799 km2 and is situated on the Archaean Kaapvaal Craton in Botswana. It is located 50 km south of the diamondiferous Jwaneng kimberlite field that hosts the Jwaneng Mine, the richest diamond mine in the world by value (http://www.debeersgroup.com/Operations/Mining/Mining-Operations/Debswana/Jwaneng).
The Project is comprised of several anomalous and large geo-botanical features associated with trace element signatures similar to those obtained over known diamondiferous kimberlites in the Jwaneng kimberlite field. Pangolin has identified more than 20 aeromagnetic targets in the Project area, several of which have surface areas exceeding 20 hectares. The largest target, GK6, is associated with a well defined geobotanical anomaly with a diameter of 1.4 km, an aeromagnetic anomaly, anomalous trace elements and an isolated gravity low.
