Botswana Metals Granted Halt Pending Assays From Wholly-Owned License

Botswana Metals (ASX:BML) has been granted a trading halt by the ASX this morning, with its shares placed in pre-open.

BML requested the halt pending exploration results from the first of a three hole drilling program at its wholly-owned PL59/2008, known as Maibele North Extension.

This drilling is along strike and 4 kilometres away from the joint venture with BCL Limited, known as Maibele North.

Maibele North has a resource of 2.38 million tonnes at 0.72% nickel, 0.21% copper and 0.63g/t of PGE, plus gold.

The halt will remain in place until the opening of trade on Monday 26th October 2015, or earlier if an announcement is made to the market.
