Edenville Energy, the company developing a coal-to-power in south western Tanzania, is on track to deliver the project.
The company has been conducting work across the Rukwa Coal Project, the area which hosts its 170 million tonnes of coal resource.
Marker units have been identified in each of the coal basins which give a better understanding of extent of the coal-bearing horizons at the margins of the Mkomolo and Namwele deposits.
Gathering of magnetic data in the field will continue until the end of the dry season in December this year, with a focus on the edges of the Mkomolo basin.
Edenville said the exploration activity is secondary to the development of the power generation project, but could provide valuable data regarding the increased potential for near surface coal seams at the edges of the Mkomolo basin.
Chief executive Rufus Short, said: “We must emphasise that whilst additional tonnes in the Mkomolo area would be a positive outcome, these are not required for the current plan for the 120MW Power Plant development.”
