Metals of Africa Limited (ASX:MTA) is an Australian resources company, focused on metals exploration, with the objective of creating shareholder wealth via the discovery and development of mineral deposits. MTA registered on the ASX in October 2012 and is presently exploring and advancing projects in Mozambique, Tanzania and Gabon.

The company’s primary focus is its Rio Mazoe Project in Mozambique, which is a Broken Hill Type (BHT) target prospective for lead-zinc-silver. Also in Mozambique the company has commenced exploration of its 100% owned Montepuez Graphite Project located in the Cabo Delgado Province.

In Tanzania the Company’s core focus is on the Mkindu Project which represents an IOCG type target. The Mkindu Project boasts a significant aerial magnetic anomalism, indicative of a conceptual Olympic Dam IOCG style target. The anomalism is strongly supported by detailed geophysical survey and colonial era mapping which confirm breccia vents along with encouraging alteration, mineralogy and sulphides.

In Gabon, MTA is focusing on the 90% owned Kroussou Project, which boasts a zinc –lead –silver –barite target thought to be a Mississippi Valley Type or Lennard Shelf Type target. So far, over 100 surface occurrences of zinc or lead mineralisation have been mapped, plus 1960’s BRGM drilling intersected shallow zinc dominant Zn-Pb-Ag mineralised lenses in every drill hole.

Supporting these world-class exploration assets, the Company has a 100% owned project pipeline of licenses in Mozambique, Tanzania and Gabon, which boast a wide variety of mineral assets, all of which have pre-identified potential and first mover advantage.
