22 October 2013

Australian company Triton Minerals has expanded the area in which it is prospecting for graphite after being granted another exploration license in Mozambique, the company said in a statement issued in Perth Monday.

“The granting of Exploration License 5966 now provides the Company the ability to start exploring the highly prospective graphite area of Nicanda Hill Prospect,” managing director Brad Boyle said.

In the statement Boyle said that geological mapping had identified some graphite exposures in an area roughly 3.75 kilometres long.

According to the statement, “the company is now redefining its exploration programme to obtain a better understanding of substructures and to test continuity of graphite mineralisation between the Cobra Plains Prospect on License 5365 and Nicanda Hill Prospect on License 5966, which now spans over 10 kilometres in length.
