Exploration Rights

Granted Exploration Rights

In January 2020 Afro Energy was granted new Exploration Rights ER 270,271 and 272 being an additional 3,577km2 to the exploration portfolio.

This increase in granted Exploration Rights provides massive potential exploration upside and value proposition for Afro Energy as it starts exploration on this ground.

  • Similar geology and structure
  • Historical data from coal mining, mineral and hydrocarbon exploration
  • Existing infrastructure and very high energy demand in the region
  • Regulator approved 3 year works programs initially comprising – Aeromag, 26 exploration core holes & 11 permeability pilot test wells
