Drilling Commences at Butcherbird Targeting Reserve Extension to Support Financing

Element 25 Limited (E25 or Company) (ASX: E25; OTCQX: ELMTF) is pleased to advise that resource infill drilling has commenced at the Company’s 100%-owned Butcherbird Manganese Project (Butcherbird or Project). E25 recently completed a Feasibility Study (FS) to expand the processing facility at Butcherbird to support manganese concentrate production of 1.1 million tonnes per annum1. The current reserve is constrained by the drill hole spacing in the inferred resource areas.


The additional drilling will provide infill data aimed at converting inferred resources to indicated or measured categories to support the re-estimation of mine reserves and extend the life-of-mine (LOM) plan to ~20 years based on conversion ratios seen at Butcherbird previously. The increase in the “reserve tail” is important for project financing and can open the project up to a wider range of potential financiers in addition to NAIF, who are currently undertaking due diligence2.

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Program comprises approximately 209 percussion drill holes for 6,270m targeting infill of existing inferred resources.
  • Drilling designed to extend current reserves of 7.2 years to approximately 20 years at 1.1M tpa concentrate production.
  • Reserve increase is an important component of securing project financing at favourable rates.

The Project hosts a global resource of over 260Mt of manganese ore however the current reserves are limited to the areas which have been drilled out to a sufficient density to support measured and indicated classifications which are required as the basis for a statement of reserves. The current drilling programme has been designed to infill existing inferred resources to a sufficient data density, based on variographic analysis, to convert the inferred resources within granted mining lease M52/1074 to indicated and/or measured.

Top 5 Manganese Reserves by Country (Updated 2024)

Manganese, a key ingredient for the steel market, is also seeing growth in demand from the electric vehicle battery sector, particularly when it comes to high-purity manganese chemical products.

Manganese investors are often interested to hear which countries produce the most of the metal. After all, if a nation is producing a lot of manganese, many companies are likely operating there — and investment opportunities may thus be available. However, what investors sometimes fail to consider is manganese reserves, or how much economically mineable manganese a country holds, and what companies are working to bring those reserves into production.

CPM Group told the Investing News Network that there are about 60 development-stage manganese ferroalloy projects scheduled to start production in the next few years. If all of these new projects in the pipeline are brought online, the impact on the global market would be about a 6 percent increase in manganese ferroalloy production capacity.
