Meet the Team Driving MRG Metals Towards Being a World-Class HMS Explorer

Interestingly, few Heavy Minerals Sands (HMS) are not easily replaced and are exclusive in select Countries, making them both rare and valuable. Of late, the HMS industry has been gaining business traction due to the soaring demand in the manufacture of important construction and industrial products, which makes them both valuable and rare.

An explorer of HMS in the world-class location of Mozambique is MRG Metals Limited (ASX: MRQ). The Company has relinquished all its Australian projects to focus on the recently acquired Corridor Projects HMS in the Southeast African nation, which hosts the largest HMS titanium feedstock resources in the World. Mozambique also is home to few of the World’s superlative mineral sands mines.

Exploration to date has shown excellent results at the Project and 2020 is anticipated to be an exciting time for MRG with an extensive flow of information to come to Shareholders as it materialises the development of a World class HMS asset at Koko Massava (the initial prospect at the Project) and other HMS assets to follow.
