ZIMBABWE WILDCAT FINDS GAS

Exploratory drilling has turned up probable coalbed methane production in Zimbabwe. Trotter Exploration of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, is drilling a second well about 1 km north of 1 Mwenje School, the country's first well drilled exclusively for gas. The 1 Mwenje School, 40 km east of Chiredzi in the lowveld area, found gas in three horizons in Permo-Triassic Karoo coal measures and fractured black shales at 300-450 m.
