Aquarius' exploration programme in South Africa is conducted at and around most operations, with the major focus on the eastern limb of the Bushveld Igneous Complex. Greenfield exploration is currently being undertaken at Zondernaam, Chieftains Plain and Walhalla while brownfield exploration is being carried out at Hoogland and Vygenhoek.

Zondernaam Project

The Zondernaam Project is situated along the east-west trending, northern part of the Eastern Limb of the BC. Lithologies of the Upper Zone, Main Zone and the upper parts of the Critical Zone underlie the Zondernaam Project.

Hoogland

Situated on the eastern limb of the BC, the Hoogland Project is located 35km south-west of the town of Mashishing, previously known as Lydenburg and 30km north-east of Roossenekal in Mpumalanga, South Africa. It is located approximately 1.5km to the south of the Everest mine.

Vygenhoek

The Vygenhoek Project is situated 35km south-west of the town of Mashishing and 30km north-east of Roossenekal in Mpumalanga, South Africa. The UG2 Reef being explored for is thought to have been deposited in synclinal structures in the floor rocks in which mineralization has “ponded” such as at Aquarius’ Everest South and Marikana Mines in the East and West Limbs of the BC respectively.
