Shefa Gems (LSE: SEFA), a precious stone exploration and prospecting Company in Northern Israel, is pleased to announce that its first Prospecting Licence, over its alluvial exploration target, the Kishon Mid-Reach Zone 1 Project, has been renewed for a period of 12 months.


The renewed Prospecting Licence (869C10) is granted for Diamonds, Gold and Precious Stones in the Kishon Mid-Reach Zone 1, covering an area of 252 Dunams (25.2 hectares).

In addition to the Prospecting Licence (869C10), the Company has prospecting permits 837A12, for the Carmel site covering an area of 327,551 Dunams (32,755 hectares), and 899A7, for the Ramot Menashe site covers an area of 112,904 Dunams (11,290 hectares). The Company also has exploration permit 869B11 covering 173,636 Dunams (17,363 hectares), which has been recently renewed, as announced in July 2019.


The four permits extend over an area of approximately 600,000 Dunams (60,000 hectares) that includes the Kishon River, the volcanic bodies on Mount Carmel, the Zevulun and Yizre'el valleys and their margins - Menashe Hills, Tivon-Alonim Hills and Nazareth range.


Avi Taub, CEO of Shefa Gems, said: "We are pleased to renew our Prospecting Licence which is another step forward as we continue to progress through the planning and regulatory procedures to advance the Kishon Mid-Reach Zone 1 with a view to begin trial mining in 2020."
