Tembang Exploration

Tembang is located within a 99.8sq km production permit (IUP) valid for 20 years to April 2032 and is surrounded to the east and south by an additional 98.5sq km exploration permit (IUP) valid to December 2017. Both IUPs are held by 100%-owned subsidiaries of Sumatra Copper & Gold plc.   

Since entering the construction phase at Tembang, exploration activities were curtailed and limited to the on-going evaluation of several near mine prospects. No regional exploration was completed.

A detailed exploration strategy review was completed in late 2015 to develop a robust geological model and exploration framework that will facilitate targeted drilling during 2016 to efficiently grow the Tembang Mineral Resource base. The review highlighted potential for discovery of additional high grade vein targets associated with the lightly tested northeast trending Bujang and Belinau host structures
