Ambodilafa - Exploration Summary
1964 to 1969
Follow up of a Cu-Ni alluvial geochemical anomalies with an EM survey resulted in the discovery of Ni-Cu-PGM mineralisation.
Drilling intersected a 93m of disseminated sulphides averaging 1% Cu equivalent.
An additional 28 holes were drilled with mixed but generally poor PGM results.

Drilling results did not support further base metals exploration at the time but the geophysical survey identified a 5km long 100 to 400m wide magnetic anomaly.
Mapping and rock chip sampling validated the 5km strike length zone with potential to host BIF horizons.
The 421 rock chip samples collected along the zone and analysed with a hand held XRF instrument averaged 44% Fe.
Drilled a total of 7 drill holes these intersected relatively narrow BIF horizons within the volcano-sedimentary package. Significant mineralisation intersected is summarised on the table below.
2012 to 2014
Intensive exploration including a helimag survey and deep drilling.
WAI have not yet reviewed all of the AKORA data or conducted a site visit but regard Ambodilafa as an “Exploration Target”.
