Deep-South Resources – Developing World Class Copper Project in Namibia


Deep-South Resources (TSXV:DSM) is advancing exploration on the Haib copper-molybdenum project located in the mining-friendly jurisdiction of Namibia. Deep-South recently signed an agreement with Teck Namibia, a subsidiary of Teck Resources Limited, that gives the company full ownership of the Haib project. The deal is representative of Deep South’s growth strategy which is focused on the exploration and development of quality assets, in significant mineralized trends, close to infrastructure and in stable countries.

With a stable democracy and economy, Namibia ranks as the best investment jurisdiction in Africa. Mining accounts for 12 percent of the country’s GDP. Namibia’s well-established mining policies are similar in structure to those of Canada and Australia, attracting several of the world’s major mining players including Rio Tinto, B2 Gold, De Beers, Areva and Exxaro.

The Haib project hosts one of the largest copper porphyry deposit in Africa and recent exploration by former owner Teck Namibia identified new high-grade zones with five highly prospective targets for further exploration. Deep-South is planning a 2017-2018 exploration program to better define those high-grade zones, grow confidence in the economics of the project, and to delineate a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate.

Deep-South Resources is led by a strong management and exploration team with decades of experience in finance, mining and exploration in Africa, particularly in Namibia. President and CEO Pierre Léveillé has decades of experience as an executive and director of several African-based exploration companies, realizing over US$70 million in transactions and financing for Namibian and African mining exploration projects. VP Exploration Vivian Stuart-Williams is a geologist with nearly 50 years of experience in the mining and exploration industry, principally in the southern African region. He has been involved with the Haib project since the mid-1990s.

Investment Highlights 

  • One of the largest copper porphyry deposit in Africa hosting recently identified high-grade zones with numerous exploration targets.
  • Located in politically and economically stable country of Namibia—best investment jurisdiction in Africa; mining-friendly policies.
  • Large database of exploration work completed by past operators including Teck Namibia.
  • Planned 2017-2018 exploration program to focus on properly delineating high grade zones to improve project economics and complete a NI 43-101 resource estimate.
  • Tight Share Structure; largest shareholder is Teck Resources with 35 percent; Namibian investment group 25 percent; management and board 25 percent.
  • Management and technical team well-versed in exploration and mining in Namibia and other regions in Africa.

Key Project: Haib Copper-Molybdenum Project, Namibia

The Haib Project covers 37,000 hectares and hosts a large copper-molybdenum porphyry deposit discovered in the early 1900s. The deposit is approximately 2 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide, extending from surface to over 800 meters deep. Haib is considered the oldest porphyry deposit in the world and contains easily identifiable porphyry veins and alteration.

Located in the Karas region of southern Namibia, the project lies 8 kilometers from the Orange River and the South African border, and 3 kilometers from main power lines and the main interstate highway which connects Namibia and South Africa. Other infrastructure in the project area includes the railway station at Grunau (100 kilometers from the property) which could provide access to multiple ports in the region.


Historical exploration

Prior to 2008, more than US$30 million in exploration expenditures we carried out on the property. Historical exploration on the property includes more than 50,000 meters of drilling by companies including Rio Tinto and Falconbridge during the 1970s.

The project has a historical (non-compliant with NI 43-101) resource estimate which includes:

  • 739 million tonnes 0.29 percent copper or 4.3 billion pounds copper in-situ, 0.2 percent copper cut-off; and
  • 244 million tonnes at 0.37 percent copper or 1.9 billion pounds copper in-situ, 0.3 percent copper cut-off.

Only the top 350 meters of the deposit was used for the historical estimate.

High-grade discovery using modern exploration techniques

Teck Namibia took control of the Haib Project in 2008. Teck’s exploration program was on a more regional scale than previous operators and focused on determining the deposit’s potential for large-scale mining and improving the economics of the project by targeting higher-grade mineralization.

Between 2010 and 2015, the company completed a total of 14,252 meters in 32 diamond drill holes on the historically defined orebody, the eastern IP anomaly, and the Haib South and Haib West satellite targets.

Teck intersected higher grade copper near surface and at depth.

These results led to the discovery of near surface zones with significantly higher grades of copper mineralization (>0.5% Cu).

Mineralizating Trends—Main Haib Body

Teck’s drilling campaign also led to the discovery of an extension of known mineralization below the historical drilling within the Main Haib zone.


Deep drilling at Haib intersects higher grade copper at depth.

“What is attractive about this project is that we have clearly defined high grade areas and Teck’s recent work shows that we can potentially increase the tonnage substantially because this porphyry system tends to open up as it goes deeper; especially between a depth of 300 and 500 meters below surface,” said Deep-South President and CEO Pierre Léveillé.

Teck Namibia has combined drilling and surface geological information to construct a provisional 3D geological model of the Main Haib zone.


New exploration targets identified

Using IP surveys and coincident copper geochemistry, Teck identified five new satellite targets.


Deep South’s 2017-2018 Exploration Program

Deep-South Resources is planning an extensive 2017-2018 exploration program aimed at completing a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimation and a new economic assessment of the project. The program will include drilling and detailed mapping of the newly discovered high-grade zones to determine tonnage and grade.
