The Manindi Project is located on the Murchison District of Western Australia, 20 km south west of the historic Youanmi gold mine.

The project, which is located on three granted mining licences, has current estimated mineral resources of 1.076Mt @ 6.52% Zn for 70,102 tonnes of contained zinc metal (at a cut-off grade of 2% Zn).

Metals Australia Chairman Sol Majteles said the drilling program will focus on exploring high priority resource extension targets and greenfield targets within the project.

“We have now mobilised our chosen drilling crew and geological team at Manindi with drilling set to commence in the next 48 hours,” Mr Majteles said.

“This drilling program will aim to delineate extensions of the existing Manindi mineralisation and will set the scene for the next stage of development. We are excited about our prospects for success in this exploration drilling campaign and look forward to keeping shareholders informed of our progress.”
