Great Dyke Investments (Pvt) Ltd (GDI), which implements the joint Russian – Zimbabwean Darwendale deposit development project, moves to the stage of design of the mining infrastructure for the Project. Large-scale geological exploration activities were successfully completed at the end of 2015. In total, 130,000 running meters (870 drill holes) were drilled, which made this Project the largest in terms of geological exploration in Zimbabwe for the past decades.
In accordance with the long-term strategy of the Darwendale Project implementation, which was approved earlier by the Board of Directors of Great Dyke Investments (Private) Limited, large-scale geological exploration works at the deposit commenced in January 2015. As of beginning of May more than 40,000 running meters have been drilled out of the total 300,000 running meters planned for drilling in 2015–2016.
According to the long-term strategy of implementation of the Darwendale Project, which was approved earlier by the Board of Directors of Great Dyke Investments (Private) Limited, large-scale geological exploration activities commenced at the deposit on January 5, 2015.
