Kastan’s primary commercial efforts have been directed towards a copper, gold, silver mining project near the village of Ulelingombe in the Kilosa District (the “Kilosa Project”) and on a limestone mining project near the village of Vitono in the Iringa Region (the “Iringa Project”). Recently discovered gemstone deposits in the Kilosa Project are being evaluated to determine commercial potential.
