The Manyingee exploration licence (E 08/1480) is located 85 km south of the port of Onslow. The tenement (total area 86 km²) was granted early February 2006 and surrounds the mining leases containing Paladin Energy Limited’s Manyingee resource, a stacked series of paleochannel hosted roll front uranium deposits.
A review of airborne EM data and historical exploration in the area has interpreted a number of palaeochannels extending into the tenement from the Paladin Manyingee deposit. An aircore drilling is proposed to target extensions to the existing defined mineralisation as well as untested channels to the south.
An initial heritage survey was undertaken by the Thalanjyi people following the signing of an access agreement, as noted in the previous quarterly report. The survey covers a proposed aircore drill program testing for extensions to the palaeochannel uranium mineralization. This proposed aircore program (approximately 3000m) will be undertaken in the second half of this year.
