Exploration and Transformation: A Look into Kavango Resources with CEO Ben Turney

View descriptionShare

In the episode, we have a returning guest who appeared back in January 2022 (Episode 206). Ben Turney is the CEO of Kavango Resources, who are a listed exploration company targeting world-class base and precious metal discoveries in Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Ben has a background in the financial markets and also worked as an investigative writer so has been involved in many transactions within the mining industry. Ben gives us an update on Kavango Resources since we last spoke with recent financing, their move into Zimbabwe, and some very encouraging drill results.


  • Kavango Resources has made significant progress in the last two years, focusing on exploration projects in Botswana and Zimbabwe.
  • The company is pursuing near-term cash-generating opportunities in Zimbabwe, with plans to scale up and build a significant business in the region.
  • Kavango Resources has secured strong financial backing, allowing them to accelerate their exploration and mining activities.
  • The company is strategically managing the complexity of exploration and mining by establishing a separate entity, Kavango Mining, to focus on revenue generation.
  • The outlook for Kavango Resources in 2024 includes high-impact drilling campaigns in Botswana and ongoing exploration efforts in Zimbabwe, aiming to prove the presence of a copper mineralising system.


"We're very bullish on the future, but we see in the near term that there being some hard times still to come."

"We're very excited about the opportunity in Zimbabwe to scale up and build quite a big business." 

"I think any companies that can make it through this time, and I think we are going to see quite a lot of failure that we haven't seen in the past."

"It's brutal out there at the moment for pretty much the entire sector is on its knees."
