Covering an area of 2km by 1km, Dambludi is a base and precious metal project located 8km south-west of the Madneuli mine. A structurally controlled, east-west trending swarm of vein style mineralization is hosted within mid-Jurassic carbonate sediments and diorite intrusive bodies.
Historical (Soviet-era) drilling totalled 18,750m and typically extended to 100m below surface, and there are extensive adits in both the eastern and western areas. Much of the deposit appears to be shallow but is also open at depth.
During 2017 Empire Metals carried out grab and chip channel sampling, soil geochemistry and geophysics surveys (Induced-Polarisation). In 2018 a small portion of the adits were also inspected and resulting grab samples yielded very attractive grades of up to 14.3 g/t Au & 4.16 % Cu.
