Jangada Mines completes drilling programme

Global Mining Review,

Jangana Mines plc, a natural resources company, has announced additional drilling assay results and reported that it has concluded its diamond drilling programme at its Pitombeiras Vanadium Project, Brazil.

The programme evaluated the structural corridor associated with the known vanadium titanomagnetite (VTM) mineralisation, which includes the Pitomeiras North and Potomeiras South anomalies and the newly discovered Goela VTM targets.

Highlights include:

  • 19 drillholes have been concluded for a total of 1360.80 m.
  • Successfully tested VTM anomaly boundaries and remaining assays for 11 mineralised drillholes to be received in order to complement data base or initial JORC mineral resource estimate.

Brian McMaster, Chairman of Jangana, said: “We have successfully completed our drilling campaign at Pitombeiras and the diamond drill rig and drilling crew have now been demobilised from the field, which brings us comfort in these challenging times caused by COVID-19. In total, 16 drillholes intersected significant VTM mineralisation and we have seen consistent Vanadium-Titanium-Iron grades and widths from the 9 drillhole assay results we have received so far. Upon receiving the remaining 11 drillhole results, we will be ready to calculate and report our initial JORC mineral resource estimate, followed by a Preliminary Economic Assessment.”
