Invictus Vitality is anticipating to mature a number of leads in its tasks in Zimbabwe to drill prepared prospects, including to a big exploration portfolio and potential useful resource base.
The corporate is constant its 2023 seismic acquisition program at its 80 % owned and operated Cabora Bassa venture.
“The corporate is happy to have already made important progress with the 2D seismic knowledge acquisition marketing campaign in EPO 1848 and EPO 1849,” managing director Scott Macmillan stated. “Seismic acquisition has commenced throughout a number of thrilling leads on development from Mukuyu and we anticipate maturing numerous these to drill prepared prospects, which is able to add to our already world class exploration portfolio and substantial potential useful resource base.”
Along with the EPOs 1848 and 1849, Invictus’ asset portfolio consists of SG 4571. Cabora Bassa is among the largest under-explored inside rift basins in Africa. The venture consists of the Mukuyu construction, which was drilled in late 2022, confirming a working hydrocarbon system within the Cabora Bassa basin and de-risking different exploration prospects alongside the Central Fairway play.
