Zambian-registered Kalahari GeoEnergy has announced positive results from its first five temperature gradient holes targeting the Bwengwa River geothermal resource area. The area includes geothermal springs extending over 7km on the southern bounding fault of the Kafue Trough, and Kalahari estimates a usable resource capacity in the range of 10-20MW. Kalahari is putting together funds to drill four further wells on the prospect with the aim of producing a feasibility study by 2017.
