Eclipse Metals prepares to test Amamoor manganese deposits in Queensland with diamond drilling

The drilling program is scheduled to start in the Central area of historical mining activity, adjacent to the two best drill holes from the 2018 program.

Mobilising equipment for the stage-2 diamond drilling program

Eclipse Metals Ltd (ASX:EPM) has mobilised equipment to the Amamoor manganese deposits near Gympie in southeast Queensland for stage-2 diamond drilling.

In March 2018 the company identified manganese mineralisation with direct shipping ore (DSO) characteristics through exploration surveys and first phase drilling.

The stage-2 program is designed to test the width, depth and grade potential as well as chemical characteristics of mineralisation proximal to historical high-grade workings at Amamoor, intersected in the stage-1 program.

Potential for large deposits 

Historical results suggest the potential for large deposits of manganese mineralisation laterally and at depth with discrete, dense gravity anomalies on or proximal to the known historical mine workings.

The drilling program is scheduled to start in the central area of historical mining activity, adjacent to the two best drill holes from the 2018 program.

Several holes are planned to test extensions along strike and at depth.

Drilling of the Northern historical workings, inaccessible during the earlier program, will follow the Central area, with possible drilling in the area of the Southern workings subject to ground evaluation.

At the Northern workings, a face of manganese mineralisation some 8 metres high and 25 metres long has been exposed and may represent a substantial body of mineralisation.
