The samples, taken from the prospect located within the recently-granted E52/3523 tenement, ranged from 14.3 per cent manganese to 52.6 per cent manganese. Such promising samples provide yet more evidence that the project could well be hosting a significant manganese system. Previous samples from the site have returned values as high as 54.8 per cent manganese.

The below table shows the recent results in full.

At the same time, it’s worth noting that this is an early stage play and investors should seek professional financial advice if considering this company for their portfolio.

Exploration at the Five Fingers prospect has indicated it contains multiple outcropping and subcropping manganiferous beds over a strike length of over five kilometres, however it has only been subject to limited drill testing so far. PM1 has confirmed that today’s results will see Five Fingers treated as a priority target as the company commences the upcoming drilling programme.

Regarding today’s news, Pure Minerals’ Executive Director and CEO, Sean Keenan said: “These surface results have identified multiple zones of manganese mineralisation at-surface, many with an enriched grade that is above the thresholds required for direct shipping operations. Five Fingers will be a priority target area once the Plan of Work has been approved and Native Heritage clearances have been attained.”

The company has now submitted to the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) a plan of work to begin RC drilling within the Battery Hub project.
