The company has received a final title opinion and plans to close the proposed acquisition on or before 15 June 2011.

The area where the licenses are located has been widely characterized as an extension of the Kalahari Copper Belt, which is believed to extend from Zambia through Botswana.

According to the company, the belt is home to many producing copper mines and many more recent and successful exploration activities.

Sono Resources seeks to acquire, explore and develop highly prospective metal projects in Africa.
