ChemX Materials, an Australian-based high purity critical materials business, has announced first stage assay result from its Jamieson Tank Manganese drilling campaign on the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. ChemX said 39 of 94 drill hole results had been received to date from the Jamieson Tank drill campaign of 6,164 metres.
The Manganese grades achieved include 6m (thickness) at 18.5%Mn from 9m and based on previous metallurgical testwork the ore is highly amenable to upgrade via beneficiation and conversion to a High Purity Manganese, battery grade product.
CEO Mark Tory commented: “ChemX is excited with the first results from the recently completed drilling campaign. The results which will go towards the maiden Resource Estimation, which will be used to support the potential to achieve a beneficiation plant feed of manganese, ultimately destined for the global battery grade manganese market.
“Noting the shallow depths for much of the mineralised intercepts gives confidence to swift accessibility on potential future mining endeavours. Further assay results from the exploration campaign are pending and will be released to the market progressively.”
In addition to Jamieson Tank Manganese deposit, ChemX has identified further Manganese prospects at
Bunora West, Hodgins, Windyzell, Francis and Polinga.
