The Imperial project is located on the border of Bauchi and Taraba states approximately 420km ENE of Abuja. Aside from the work Symbol is doing currently, there has been little modern exploration on the site. Significant historical mining has occurred as artisanal miners followed the surface expressions of high grade lead and zinc.
The known prospects are fault-controlled veins that have many of the characteristics of significant Pb/Zn deposits described as poly metallic or clastic hosted veins.
Product previously mined at the site had grades of 38% Pb and 19% Zn with discrete layers of Galena and Sphalerite over significant strike distance. With over 400km2 of tenement package there is significant regional prospecitivity.
The Imperial main vein is a sandstone hosted 1600m strike length of artisanal, open pit and underground historical mining. Significant tonnage has been extracted from the site historically. The orebody is clearly defined with extensive weathered massive sulphides of galena, sphalerite, pyrite and chalcopyrite through multiple veins.
