·    Block 4 and 5 Copper Projects in Oman - recent drilling has highlighted the potential to further define the high grade portion of the current Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.7Mt at 2.2% copper.


·    Somero and Erajarvi Lithium Projects in Finland - following the acquisition of these licences earlier this year, early reconnaissance work is continuing and additional assay results are expected shortly.

Savannah Resources Plc (AIM: SAV) is a growth oriented, multi-commodity, development company.



Savannah operates combined heavy mineral sands projects in Mozambique with Rio Tinto, and can earn a 51% interest in the combined Consortium Project, which has an established initial Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource Estimate of 3.5 billion tonnes at 3.8% THM over the Jangamo and Dongane deposits.  Under the terms of the agreement with Rio Tinto Savannah must deliver the following to earn corresponding interest in the Consortium Project: scoping study - 20%; pre-feasibility study - 35%; feasibility study - 51%. Additionally, the Consortium Agreement includes an offtake agreement on commercial terms for the sale of 100% of production to Rio Tinto (or an affiliate).



Savannah has interests in two copper blocks in the highly prospective Semail Ophiolite Belt in Oman.  The projects, which have an Indicated and Inferred Mineral Resource of 1.7Mt @ 2.2% copper and high grade intercepts of up to 56.35m at 6.21% Cu, with additional gold upside potential, provide Savannah with an excellent opportunity to potentially evolve into a mid-tier copper and gold producer in a relatively short time frame. Together with its Omani partners, Savannah aims to outline further mineral resources to provide the critical mass for a central operating plant to develop the deposits, and in December 2015 outlined exploration targets of between 10,700,000 and 29,250,000 tonnes grading between 1.4% and 2.4% copper.



Savannah has Reservation Permits over two new lithium projects, Somero and Erajarvi, covering an area of 159km² in Finland.  Savannah holds a 100% interest in these projects through its Finnish subsidiary Finkallio Oy.  Geological mapping by the Finnish Government within the project areas has highlighted the presence of lithium minerals spodumene, lepidolite and petalite with the Government also identifying Somero and Erajarvi as one of the most prospective areas to discover lithium deposits in Finland.  Savannah plans to initiate an exploration programme including data compilation, geological mapping and surface sampling with the aim of generating drill ready targets during 2016.
