Highlights

  • Black Canyon (ASX:BCA) has continued to focus on developing its flagship Flanagan Bore Manganese project.
  • A recently completed Scoping Study for the Flanagan Bore Project has delivered encouraging results, indicating substantial financial value from the potential mine development at the project.
  • The Company intends to produce manganese concentrate for the manufacture of steel and to produce high-purity manganese sulphate monohydrate for the growing electric vehicle battery market.
  • BCA is backed by a highly qualified team of professionals who have a depth of experience across various critical functions.

With a large exploration footprint, Black Canyon Limited (ASX:BCA) is committed to becoming the dominant ASX-listed manganese focused explorer/developer in the Pilbara region. The company is advancing its highly prospective projects covering eight tenements totalling 1585 km2 (7 granted and 1 under application) in the region.

The project areas being explored are prospective for mineralisation similar to that of operating manganese mines at Woodie Woodie and Butcherbird.

The project portfolio indicates potential for developing minerals that are further used in steel manufacturing as well as emerging energy storage space.

Moreover, the company has completed an infill drilling across the project, delivering even thicker zones of higher-grade manganese enriched shale. The results highlight the potential to expand the FB3 Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) and grow the global mineral resources at Flanagan Bore.

In April 2022, the company announced mineral resources of 104Mt @ 10.5% Mn (Indicated) containing 11Mt of manganese.

Metallurgical Studies at Flanagan Bore

Black Canyon has longer-term plans for downstream processing. The company plans to undertake initial manganese concentrate leaching test work as part of an overall strategy to add value through downstream processing.

The aim is to potentially produce high-purity manganese sulphate monohydrate for the growing electric vehicle battery market.

Meanwhile, the company is also planning a scoping level study to evaluate the economics of processing manganese fines into high-purity manganese sulphate monohydrate.
