Mustang kicks off Feasibility Study drilling at vanadium-graphite play

Date: Aug 9, 2018

Mustang Resources Ltd (ASX:MUS | FRA:GGY) has today informed the market that the Feasibility Study drilling program is now underway at its flagship Caula Vanadium-Graphite project in Mozambique. MUS has planned 4075m of diamond and reverse-circulation (RC) drilling to be completed in the current third quarter of 2018, with a future Resource upgrade firmly in mind.

The purpose of the drilling program is not only to expand the existing Caula vanadium and graphite JORC Resource, but to provide additional core samples for feasibility level metallurgical testing programs; to conduct geological, geohydrology and geotechnical studies; and to act as a foundation for feasibility studies for the Caula project in the following two quarters.

The drilling program in detail

The drilling program for the Caula Project has been set out by MUS independent competent person Johan Erasmus of Sumsare Consulting, with 3025m of diamond drilling over 18 holes and 1025m of RC drilling over 16 holes.

A geological office, including core logging, cutting, sampling and storage facility has also been established and camp and site construction is currently underway.

It should be noted it is still early stages here, so investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for their portfolio.

MUS Managing Director Dr Bernard Olivier commented on today’s announcement: “This drilling program is a significant step forward for Mustang Resources as we expect to see an expansion of the already valuable Caula Vanadium and Graphite Resources.

“Samples from the drilling will be used to conduct further metallurgical testwork to validate and confirm the company’s previous testwork and reinforce the simplicity of the recovery process. We look forward to updating the market once the results become available.”

The company believes the potential exists to expand the Caula Project significantly through the drilling program, which is in progress with independent drilling company, Major Drilling International Inc.

In the immediate vicinity of the Caula discovery, vanadium-graphite mineralisation has now been defined over a 540m strike length (open-ended to the south) and this mineralisation is up to 230m wide (estimated true thickness), with the depth being completely open-ended at the limit of the current drilling.
