The company’s seven tenements cover an area of over 2,700 km2 in West Africa. HAR has a two-year exploration and development budget mapped out for two of its key projects. These include the Senegal-located Saraya uranium project which has been subject to more than 65,000 m of historical drilling, and the Ibel South gold project located in Senegal. Both projects are serviced by the company’s 40-man exploration camp.

Further, Haranga is continuously exploring options to expand its reach by assessing more acquisition targets in Africa that are complimentary to its existing portfolio of projects.

Impressive developments unlocking uranium potential at Saraya

A 3,021 metre drilling program has been completed at the project, with 22 holes. HAR has said that in all drill holes, outcomes indicate that zones of potential uranium mineralisation were intersected consistent with historical drilling.

At Saraya, HAR is also advancing on its regional permit-wide termite mound sampling campaign. In early February 2023, HAR reported that initial results of the sampling program have revealed numerous uranium anomalies in Saraya’s northern parts. The anomalous uranium value ranges between 7 ppm or parts per million and 17 ppm with respect to 188 samples. To know more, read here.  

Interestingly, this regional sampling program covers only 32% or 520km2 of the permit.

The project has seen historical drilling of more than 65,000 metres. In 2010, Areva (now Orano) undertook drilling at the Diobi prospect, nearly 5 kilometres NNE of the Saraya prospect. This Areva campaign delivered uranium mineralisation that further confirmed the uranium anomalies.

The current focus is on converting the exploration target into its first mineral resource. Given a couple of these uranium anomalies coincide with regional historical drill success to the NNE of Saraya prospect, it is already looking like further uranium discoveries will be made on this permit, highlights the company.  

Haranga Resources believes that it is an exciting period for the company, which aims to prove that Saraya could potentially host significant uranium resources.
