The Kithulgala project site is located in the Kagalle district. The site is approximately 5km from the Bogala Graphite mine which had operated for over 150 years and is circa 600m deep.
The Kithulgala fault zone lies along the main strike zone as Bogala mine.
Kithulgala is located 5km along strike from the operating Bogala graphite mine run by German company GK, and there are three other active mines within 10km of Margosa’s licence (see figure below). Bogala has operated for over 150 years and is currently around 600m deep circa. Kithulgala lies on the same fold axis as Bogala with look-alike cross-structures.
Field reconnaissance has located old graphite workings that reputedly pre-date Bogala, in an area of very rugged bushland. Margosa is treating Kithulgala as a Tier 1 target and is very confident that the 2017 airborne EM survey will locate additional graphite within the licence area.
