- DES’s Nata prospecting licences lie along the Cretaceous Kimberlite Corridor at the right position where an additional kimberlite cluster would be expected based on the cluster spacing along the corridor.
- However, no kimberlite discoveries have been made in this area possibly due to the extensive cover of Makgadikgadi pan sediments. Kimberlite indicator minerals have been redistributed such that they are presently along palaeo-shore lines rather than over the kimberlites themselves. This may have prevented conventional soil sampling methods from identifying any kimberlites and it necessitates the use of geophysics alone.
- Numerous high priority drill-ready magnetic anomalies exist on DES’s prospecting licences, beneath the Makgadikgadi pan sediments.
