Aziana currently has three core projects in Madagascar with our efforts focused on our advanced bauxite project at Manantenina, our Copper-Gold-Molybdenum project at Anosivola and our graphite project at Belanitra.
Manatenina Bauxite Project
At Manantenina, Aziana has discovered commercial quantities of high grade bauxite with high available alumina and low reactive silica. With an initial maiden JORC resource of 10.09 million tonnes already announced for one small part of our tenement holding, Aziana is confident of defining a JORC resource of 100-150 million tonnes.
Anasivola Copper-Gold-Molybdenum Project
Anosivola is highly prospective for a significant Copper-Gold-Molybdenum discovery, with surface copper carbonate-sulphide mineralization identified over substantial widths on structures several kilometers long. Results from trench channel samples include 6m @ 2.7% Cu and 2.6m @ 5.26% Cu.
Belanitra Graphite Project
Madagascar is renowned for production of high quality large flake graphite and the Belanitra licenses lie in an area of historic mine workings. Preliminary work has confirmed the presence of thick graphite seams in a lateritic terrain at the historic Ankerakely mine. This is now the focus for more detailed work to test the extent and quality of the graphite and as a possible site for a small-medium scale production mine and processing plant/
