A-Cap Resources has reported positive results of independent study for Mea coal project in Botswana.

Sedgman was commissioned by A-Cap to assess the potential for development of the Mea coal project covering geological, engineering and marketing.

A-Cap CEO Paul Thomson said the study will support A-Cap’s decision to assess the potential of the project as well as the development options available for this exciting discovery.

"From our initial drilling results we knew the Mea coal project had distinct advantages because the quality of the coal is superior to many other deposits in Botswana," Thomson added.

"We chose Sedgman as they have excellent experience in Botswana and South Africa both within the coal sector and also developing mining operations within the region."

Currently determining options to advance exciting discovery to feasibility and production, Sedgman recommended that A-Cap’s project proceeds to a definitive feasibility study (DFS).
