The coal mine covers 19,236 hectares of the Karro Mid-Zambezi coal basin in the Hwange (Wankie) mining district.

The results received from the ALS laboratory in South Africa, were taken from five boreholes drilled at Lubu.

The main seam thickness ranged from 20.40m to 15.14m confirming the continuity of the coal formation.

Importantly, the average yields have increased from 21% to 26% in the new batch of samples.

The Phase 1 of the drilling program has now commenced that will both in-fill the Phase 1 drill holes to publish a JORC compliant resource on Lubu

This will be followed by the drilling of Area 2, which is south of the current drill location.

The company said that two new targets within the special grant area have been identified that present a good opportunity for additional shallow coal to be explored in the near future.

Sable Mining CEO Andrew Groves said that this second batch of results further confirms the potential for Lubu to host a large metallurgical and thermal coal deposit.

"Our aim is to rapidly advance Lubu through further drilling in order to upgrade the current 360 million tonne estimate and publish a JORC compliant resource," Groves said.
