Keras Resources begins bulk sampling programme at Nayega manganese project

(Togo First) - Keras Resources launched this week the 10,000 tons bulk sampling testwork at the Nayega manganese project, in Northern Togo. The programme aims to assess ore ability in smelters, and obtain real-time data on operating costs and logistics involved in exporting the product to end-users.

According to a statement released by the company on Tuesday, Carriere Mines Travaux Public (CMTP), the firm hired to conduct the testworks, has established the site and began extracting the bulk sample, within the set deadline. The mobile screening unit has arrived at the Port of Lomé and will reach Nayega in the first week of September for the second phase of the programme. Final stage which should commence mid-November will focus on washing and scrubbing.  

“I am pleased to report that the bulk sampling has commenced as planned and the start of phase 1 yesterday represents another milestone in the Nayega manganese project’s progression towards regulatory approval for commercial production,” declared Keras CEO Russel Lamming.

AIM-listed Keras Resource operates the Nayega project via its subsidiary Société Générale des Mines SARL (SGM) in which it holds an 85% stake.
