Commenting KEFI executive chairman, Harry Anagnostaras-Adams, said: 'We are pleased that drilling of our Hawiah prospect in Saudi Arabia has commenced.

'Hawiah has all the hallmarks of being a great target within a significant copper-gold-zinc VMS district. Major deposits have already been discovered and developed in the Arabian Nubian Shield and we are confident of positive results from our exploration programme, the results of which we will report as results warrant over the coming weeks and months.'
