  • Eclipse Metals has DSO manganese potential at Mary Valley in Queensland
  • Eclipse Metals is investigating the potential of its Mary Valley Project near Gympie in Queensland to host DSO manganese mineralizationEclipse Metals (ASX: EPM) is investigating the potential of its Mary Valley Project in Queensland to host DSO manganese mineralisation.This follows a desktop review of historical data which found that 32,724 tonnes of ore grading 42% to 51% manganese had being shipped from the two exploration permits that make up the project, which is located just 165 rail kilometres from Brisbane.
  • Limits of the deposit are not known either along strike or at depth. Historical assays also indicate that the manganese, iron, silicon and phosphorus levels are all within the direct shipping ore parameters, which further support the economic potential of stand-alone mining operations at the Mary Valley Manganese Project.
