The Zn-Pb-Cu anomalous for this area is located in a folded terrain dominated by a series of roughly east-west trending anticlines and synclines cored by Dipeta, Mwashya and Lower Kundelungu rocks, especially Grand Conglomerate, and is overlain by Nguba and Kundelungu rock units.
The concession is hosted within the folded and faulted carbonate rocks (Roan formation) and displays a strong structural control. The results of exploration activities suggest that it may closely resemble a salt-dome controlled Zn-sulphide deposit hosted in Roan formation.
Exploration works completed were a Natural Source Audio Magneto-telluric (NSAMT) geophysical survey, detailed geologic mapping, and a Land Cruiser mounted diamond drilling campaign with a total of seven diamond drill holes were completed (613.50 total meters) , with several drill holes intersecting disseminated blebby sphalerite (best intercept was 6% Zn over 1.5m). The area contains a large zinc soil anomaly, roughly 4km2 in size, with soil sample values of up to 1,270ppm Zn, 873ppm Pb and rock grab samples that have yielded up to 1.3% Zn, 2.6% and 0.2% Pb.

The drilling activity were done for Zn-Pb target from geochemistry
