Company announced that it has initiated the work on the now 5Mtpa & 10Mtpa scoping studies for the Manono Lithium Project. Earlier, instead of 5Mtpa, it was a 4Mtpa study, but the company has now increased the scale of the study as company decided to study the use of 5Mtpa modules given the expected economies of scale from this strategy and the size and potential of the world-class resource available to at Manono.

It is expected that a total of 5 holes will produce sufficient material to allow more in-depth metallurgical test work studies to be undertaken during the last quarter of 2018. The pegmatite intervals in the new infill holes show substantial thicknesses of higher-grade material ranging in depth from just under the weathered zones to deeper in the deposit. The company also announced that the Roche Dure mineralization continues to increase, and the company is looking forward to releasing an updated Mineral Resource Estimate for Manono before the end of the FY 2018.
