Arcadia Minerals hero image - tree over landscape


Arcadia is a Namibia focused diversified explorer, mainly focussed on battery metals.

The minerals currently under investigation consist of the advanced Swanson Tantalum project and the Battery-Metals portfolio consisting of the Kum-Kum Nickel Project, the Bitterwasser Lithium-in-Brines and Lithium-in-Clays Project and the Karibib Copper Project.

The Karibib project also contains significant gold exploration potential. The Company’s project portfolio is displayed below.

Project Portfolio

The Swanson Tantalum project holds the promise to underpin the core value proposition of Arcadia’s character as a diversified explorer and envisions providing early cash flows that could increase shareholder value, by fulfilling expenditure requirements of the exploration assets, when required.

At this project 15 shallow and near horizontal pegmatites are being explored over one of the 6 pegmatite-swarms present on the property.

Drilling has shown some of the Swanson pegmatites to be amenable to opencast mining operations.

Existing test-work results indicate that the average grade of 15 pegmatites is around +420ppm (which is considered high grade by global standards). Five additional pegmatite swarms remain in the area that are yet to be explored.

Mineralogical studies at the Kum-Kum Nickel Project indicated magmatic-hosted Ni-Cu-PGE massive sulphides. Historical drilling in the 70’s and 80’s, which were drilled up to depths of 200m, returned results of 0.21% – 0.58% Nickel over mineralised widths of up to 30m, and 0.30% – 0.50% Copper over the same widths. In addition, surface sampling completed by Arcadia returned results of 4.62 % Ni and 6.3 % Cu.

Interestingly, PGE sampling on surface returned 0.51g/t – 1.03 g/t mineralisation.
