Metals of Africa continues graphite prospecting in Mozambique

14 May 2015

Australia’s Metals of Africa has begun a drilling programme to ascertain existing near-surface graphite resources at the Montepuez Central project in northern Mozambique, the company indicated in a statement.

The drilling involves an overall length of 5,000 metres and will focus on areas close to the surface, where the existence of high-quality mineralisation has been confirmed.

This new programme follows another at Montepuez Central completed in December 2014 which intersected several areas of high quality graphite mineralisation, including 145 metres with a graphite content of 9.6 percent and 34 metres with a vanadium content of 0.12 percent.

In the statement, Metals of Africa indicates that the new programme should be finished this coming August.

The Montepuez Central project is 100 percent controlled by the company. It is situated in Cabo Delgado province, in the same region where the Australian companies Triton Minerals and Syrah Resources area also conducting operations to exploit graphite deposits. (Macauhub/MZ)
