One of the country's most extensive drilling projects has been initiated at Jwaneng Mine.
Sample data from drilling will help unearth geoscientific information to be used to design Jwaneng Underground Mine.
Four drilling companies have teamed up with Debswana to drill almost 100 kilometres of cored boreholes.
The project introduces new generation drilling rigs that are not only more productive than earlier models but are safer to operate too.
Although drilling was suspended following the outbreak of Covid-19, more than 60.2 kilometres have already been drilled.
Data from borehole samples will help build models for future scenarios to sustain mining production, identify new opportunities and remedy potential safety hazards before mining starts in a particular zone.
The drilling programme is one of a number of Horizon 2 projects aligned with Debswana's "One Dream. One Team'" strategy, that will unlock greater shareholder value and create a better future for all.
