MetalsGrove uncovers ‘large’ conductor zone at Woodie Woodie North 

MetalsGrove Mining (ASX: MGA) reports the presence of a large conductor zone following a technical review of historical airborne electromagnetic survey data at its Woodie Woodie North Manganese Project in Western Australia.

The discovery of the ‘large’ conductor zone has led to the commencement of a 1596-line kilometre helicopter borne magnetic and radiometric survey to provide detailed lithological and structural mapping of the project area.

With the current airborne magnetic and radiometric survey still ongoing, MetalsGrove announces that additional exploration activities, including surface mapping and soil geochemistry are on schedule to be completed this quarter within the Woodie Woodie North Project area.

Commenting on the results, MetalsGrove Mining Managing Director Sean Sivasamy said: “We are delighted with the outcomes of our technical review which has further reinforced the underlying prospectivity of the Woodie Woodie North Manganese Project and provided our team with a significant target area for our upcoming exploration campaign. 

“our technical review … has further reinforced the underlying prospectivity of the Woodie Woodie North Manganese Project”

The identification of a broad conductor along the major structural corridor is significant and this area remains largely untested by modern exploration methods. 

The Woodie Woodie North Project is a highly mineralised region which has clearly demonstrated the potential to host significant manganese mineralisation.

MetalsGrove has assembled a world-class portfolio of critical metals assets in prime exploration jurisdictions and our initial technical reviews have provided our team with great momentum as we scale up our exploration efforts.”

The company also notes that new target generation and data processing is set to be undertaken simultaneously as the current magnetic and radiometric survey progresses.

MetalsGrove is an Australian-based exploration and development company, focused on the exploration and development of its portfolio of high-quality lithium, rare earth, copper-gold, manganese, and base metal projects in Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

The company is committed to green metal exploration and development to meet the growing demand from the battery storage and renewable energy markets in the transition to a decarbonised world.

Located about 100km east of Marble Bar within the eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia, the Woodie Woodie North Project covers a total land tenure of 13,740 hectares.
