CEO of URU Metals, Mr John Zorbas, commented: ” We are excited to be moving forward with the Prospecting Right approval process. Being the adjoining property to the Zebediela Nickel Property, owned by Zeb Nickel Corp (TSXV: ZBNI) increases the exposure of URU to the massive nickel sulphide and PGE exploration potential on the Northern Limb of the Bushveld Complex. Subject to the approval of the Prospecting Right Application by the South African Department of Mineral Resources we look forward to fast tracking the exploration of this project in order to quickly understand any economic potential the ground may hold.
