VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Sono Resources Inc. (OTCQB-SRCI); the "Company" or "Sono") has begun its first stage of exploration on its Bonnyridge copper/silver concession area in Botswana, Africa with a high resolution airborne survey by GEX Surveys (Pty) Ltd ("GEX").
GEX will be flying 11,110 line kilometers of fixed-wing aeromagnetics at 100 meter spacing over the property in NW Botswana spanning a specific target area of 1009 square km. The horizontal axis airborne magnetic survey will provide very high-resolution gradiometer data. This will aid geologists in choosing more advanced drill targets and help to further delineate potential target horizons in the Kalahari Copper Belt where Sono is exploring.
The high resolution airborne survey will enhance the ongoing soil geochem programme and is designed to provide well-defined drilling targets in the area, which is of high prospectivity as annotated by the zones on the image available for viewing at http://goo.gl/mOSqM.
The area where the Sono's licenses are located has been widely characterized as an extension of the Kalahari Copper Belt, which is believed to extend from Zambia through Botswana and into Namibia. The belt is home to many producing copper mines and many more recent and successful exploration activities.
