20th August 2008: Lithic Metals & Energy (AIM:LMY), a joint venture partner of Zambezi Resources announces identifying 18 new uranium radiometric anomalies on the Mpande licence.
14th July 2008: Rio Tinto, joint venture partner of Zambezi Resources, announces that a recently completed VTEM survey highlights conductors in a regional shear zone over 30 kms in strike. These conductors are coincident with uranium anomalism identified in a previous radiometric survey. Based on these results both parties have agreed to expand the existing JV to incorporate newly identified prospective areas.
