    • Botswana – Manganese  

      Giyani is currently developing three prospects (K.Hill, Otse, and Lobatse) within its large property of 8,135 square kilometers, located in the Kanye  Basin, southeastern Botswana, Africa. These prospects encompass several past producing manganese mines, and Giyani’s corporate objective is to revive these dormant resources and bring them back into production to become a leading independent supplier of low-cost high-grade feedstock manganese for the battery industry

      The Kanye Manganese Project has several advantages that make it quite unique including, near surface deposition, low levels of impurities, access to infrastructure in a mining-friendly jurisdiction, and easy access to multiple shipping ports.

      Ownership:

      • 88% Giyani
      • 12% Marcell Holdings

      Project is active and Giyani believes a sizable high grade manganese deposit can be quickly advanced to production providing feedstock to battery technology manufacturers.

      The project covers a supergene system containing high-grade manganese nodules. Manganese ore mined from 1957 to 1967 at Kgwakgwe Hill consisted almost entirely of such high-grade manganese oxide nodules grading 40-50% total manganese (Source: Botswana Notes and Records, Vol.30, p. 147-156).

      The deposit lies within the Kanye Basin, which is underlain by rocks of the Transvaal Supergroup (“Transvaal”). The Transvaal hosts roughly 80% of the world’s manganese reserves and has been identified in Botswana both under cover beneath Kalahari sands and in local outcrop within the project area. This deposit is of particular interest to Giyani because it is proof of concept that manganese deposits exist in Botswana and that the manganese displays simple yet ideal chemical compositions and grade characteristics that would be attractive to battery manufacturers.

      Filing of a National Instrument 43-101 technical report titled “Mineral Resource Estimate for the K.Hill Manganese Project, Botswana”

      Giyani Metals Corp.  is pleased to have filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report titled “Mineral Resource Estimate for the K.Hill Manganese Project, Botswana”. The mineral resource estimate, prepared by the South Africa based MSA Group, was announced on September 28, 2018 and it demonstrated an inferred resource of 1.1 million tonnes grading 31.2% manganese oxide (MnO) at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO.

      Giyani began exploration on its 8,135 square kilometer property in May, 2017 with a mapping and sampling program which resulted in identifying the K.Hill area as a priority prospect. Since then, the Company has undertaken mineralogical and hydrometallurgical testing and carried out an exploration and resource drilling campaign in which 1,832 m was drilled. Drilling was focused on K.Hill where a total of 1,109.03 m was drilled, with 368 core samples assayed together with 57 quality control (QC) samples.

      Mineral Resource summary

      The manganese mineralization at K.Hill occurs primarily as a supergene enriched manganiferous shale (the Mn-Shale) occurring in the upper portion of a shale horizon within the Black Reef Quartzite Formation of the Transvaal Supergroup. The K.Hill deposit is more or less kidney shaped, with a northern and a southern portion. The manganese shale outcrops along the northerly scarp slope of the Kgwakgwe Hill and dips into the hill. The northerly portion is elongated northwest over an area of approximately 400 m by 300 m and the average thickness of the targeted mineralization (the high-grade portion of the Mn-Shale) in this area is 3.5 m. The southerly area of mineralization is elongated northeast over an area of approximately 570 m by 200 m, and has an average thickness of 2.0 m. The manganese shale outcrops along the easterly scarp slope of the hill. Figure 1 below shows a 3D blockmodel of K.Hill

        

      Figure 1. Oblique view (left) and plan view (right) of 3D geology block model of K-Hill

      A total of eighteen vertical holes were drilled at K.Hill. Two of the drillholes were collared outside the Mineral Resource area, one was drilled for metallurgical purposes and twelve of the exploration drillholes intersected the Mn-Shale. Out of these, eleven holes intersected the high-grade mineralization in the Mn-Shale, but only ten were used for estimation due to poor recovery observed in DDKH18_0006. Drillholes not included in the grade estimate were used in defining the extent of the mineralization and for estimating the low-grade Mn-Shale and surrounding un-mineralized lithologies.

      A Mineral Resource for the high-grade layer of the Mn-Shale has been reported in accordance with NI 43-101 as shown in Table 1 below

      Notes:

      1. All tabulated data have been rounded and as a result minor computational errors may occur.
      2. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves have no demonstrated economic viability.
      3. LOI = Loss on ignition
      4. Density determination was on undried samples and tonnages are reported as wet.

      The cut-off grade calculation was based on the following assumptions: EMM price of USD2,500/t (FOB, Port Elizabeth, South Africa), mining cost of USD35/t, processing cost of USD75/t, G&A cost of USD15/t, transport of USD50/t EMM, metallurgical recovery of 60% of the contained manganese.

      The Mineral Resource is reported at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO, which is the lowest grade block estimate within the mineralization model. Given reasonably assumed high-level cost and revenue assumptions, the QP considers that mineralization at this cut-off grade will satisfy the test for reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction (RPEEE). It should be noted that the cost and revenue assumptions are conceptual in nature and would not satisfy the requirements of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) in terms of NI 43-101.

      The results of preliminary metallurgical test-work suggest that the manganese mineralization at K.Hill may be amenable to processing to produce manganese metal that may be suitable for the battery market.

      Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate

      The mineral resource estimate, prepared by the South Africa based MSA Group, includes an inferred resource of 1.1 million tonnes grading 31.2% manganese oxide (MnO) at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO.

      Mineral Resource summary

      The Mineral Resource estimate was based on geochemical analyses and density measurements of core samples obtained by diamond drilling undertaken by Giyani from 16 April 2018 to 2 July 2018. A total of eighteen vertical holes were drilled at K-Hill. Two of the drill holes were collared outside the Mineral Resource area, one was drilled for metallurgical purposes and twelve of the drill holes intersected the manganese shale. The intersections obtained from ten drill holes were used to estimate the grade of the Mineral Resource. The remainder were used in defining the extent of the mineralization.

      A three dimensional geological model of the major stratigraphic units was constructed using the drillhole logging data. The mineralized envelope within the manganese shale was defined by a 15% MnO threshold and a three dimensional mineralization model was constructed. The grades of MnO, Fe2O3, Al2O3, SiO2 as well as Loss on Ignition (LOI) and density were estimated using inverse distance squared into a block model based on the geological and mineralization model. An adjustment to the modelled tonnage was made in order to account for depletion by historical mining.

      The Mineral Resource was estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Best Practice Guidelines and is reported in accordance with the 2014 CIM Definition Standards, which have been incorporated by reference into National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101). The Mineral Resource is classified into the Inferred category as shown in Table 1 above.

      The cut-off grade calculation was based on the following assumptions: EMM price of USD2,500/t (FOB), mining cost of USD35/t, processing cost of USD75/t, G&A cost of USD20/t, transport cost of USD50/t EMM, metallurgical recovery of 60% of the contained manganese.

      Dr. Ian Flint, who lead Giyani’s hydrometallurgical testing, states that “ the laboratory scale test-work on samples from the hole drilled for metallurgical test-work indicates that the manganese mineralization and leach chemistry are well suited for solvent extraction. A manganese recovery of over 95% was achieved at this stage.: It is envisaged that this would be further processed to electrolytic manganese metal (EMM).

      The Mineral Resource is reported at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO, which is the lowest grade block estimate within the mineralization model. Given reasonably assumed high-level cost and revenue assumptions, MSA considers that mineralization at this cut-off grade will satisfy the test for reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction.

      The Inferred Mineral Resource has been tabulated using a number of cut-off grades as shown in Table 2.

      Footnotes:

      1. All tabulated data have been rounded and as a result minor computational errors may occur.
      2. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves have no demonstrated economic viability.
      3. LOI = Loss on ignition.
      4. Density determination was on undried samples and tonnages are reported as wet.

      Giyani will be filing an NI 43-101 Technical Report on the K-Hill Project within 45 days of this news release.

The grades of MnO, Fe2O3, Al2O3, SiO2 as well as Loss on Ignition (LOI) and density were estimated using inverse distance squared into a block model based on the geological and mineralization model. An adjustment to the modelled tonnage was made in order to account for depletion by historical mining.

      The Mineral Resource was estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Best Practice Guidelines and is reported in accordance with the 2014 CIM Definition Standards, which have been incorporated by reference into National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101). The Mineral Resource is classified into the Inferred category as shown in Table 1 above.

      The cut-off grade calculation was based on the following assumptions: EMM price of USD2,500/t (FOB), mining cost of USD35/t, processing cost of USD75/t, G&A cost of USD20/t, transport cost of USD50/t EMM, metallurgical recovery of 60% of the contained manganese.

      Dr. Ian Flint, who lead Giyani’s hydrometallurgical testing, states that “ the laboratory scale test-work on samples from the hole drilled for metallurgical test-work indicates that the manganese mineralization and leach chemistry are well suited for solvent extraction. A manganese recovery of over 95% was achieved at this stage.: It is envisaged that this would be further processed to electrolytic manganese metal (EMM).

      The Mineral Resource is reported at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO, which is the lowest grade block estimate within the mineralization model. Given reasonably assumed high-level cost and revenue assumptions, MSA considers that mineralization at this cut-off grade will satisfy the test for reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction.

      The Inferred Mineral Resource has been tabulated using a number of cut-off grades as shown in Table 2.

      Footnotes:

      1. All tabulated data have been rounded and as a result minor computational errors may occur.
      2. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves have no demonstrated economic viability.
      3. LOI = Loss on ignition.
      4. Density determination was on undried samples and tonnages are reported as wet.

      Giyani will be filing an NI 43-101 Technical Report on the K-Hill Project within 45 days of this news release.

    • Botswana – Manganese  

      Giyani is currently developing three prospects (K.Hill, Otse, and Lobatse) within its large property of 8,135 square kilometers, located in the Kanye  Basin, southeastern Botswana, Africa. These prospects encompass several past producing manganese mines, and Giyani’s corporate objective is to revive these dormant resources and bring them back into production to become a leading independent supplier of low-cost high-grade feedstock manganese for the battery industry

      The Kanye Manganese Project has several advantages that make it quite unique including, near surface deposition, low levels of impurities, access to infrastructure in a mining-friendly jurisdiction, and easy access to multiple shipping ports.

      Ownership:

      • 88% Giyani
      • 12% Marcell Holdings

      Project is active and Giyani believes a sizable high grade manganese deposit can be quickly advanced to production providing feedstock to battery technology manufacturers.

      The project covers a supergene system containing high-grade manganese nodules. Manganese ore mined from 1957 to 1967 at Kgwakgwe Hill consisted almost entirely of such high-grade manganese oxide nodules grading 40-50% total manganese (Source: Botswana Notes and Records, Vol.30, p. 147-156).

      The deposit lies within the Kanye Basin, which is underlain by rocks of the Transvaal Supergroup (“Transvaal”). The Transvaal hosts roughly 80% of the world’s manganese reserves and has been identified in Botswana both under cover beneath Kalahari sands and in local outcrop within the project area. This deposit is of particular interest to Giyani because it is proof of concept that manganese deposits exist in Botswana and that the manganese displays simple yet ideal chemical compositions and grade characteristics that would be attractive to battery manufacturers.

      Filing of a National Instrument 43-101 technical report titled “Mineral Resource Estimate for the K.Hill Manganese Project, Botswana”

      Giyani Metals Corp.  is pleased to have filed a National Instrument 43-101 technical report titled “Mineral Resource Estimate for the K.Hill Manganese Project, Botswana”. The mineral resource estimate, prepared by the South Africa based MSA Group, was announced on September 28, 2018 and it demonstrated an inferred resource of 1.1 million tonnes grading 31.2% manganese oxide (MnO) at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO.

      Giyani began exploration on its 8,135 square kilometer property in May, 2017 with a mapping and sampling program which resulted in identifying the K.Hill area as a priority prospect. Since then, the Company has undertaken mineralogical and hydrometallurgical testing and carried out an exploration and resource drilling campaign in which 1,832 m was drilled. Drilling was focused on K.Hill where a total of 1,109.03 m was drilled, with 368 core samples assayed together with 57 quality control (QC) samples.

      Mineral Resource summary

      The manganese mineralization at K.Hill occurs primarily as a supergene enriched manganiferous shale (the Mn-Shale) occurring in the upper portion of a shale horizon within the Black Reef Quartzite Formation of the Transvaal Supergroup. The K.Hill deposit is more or less kidney shaped, with a northern and a southern portion. The manganese shale outcrops along the northerly scarp slope of the Kgwakgwe Hill and dips into the hill. The northerly portion is elongated northwest over an area of approximately 400 m by 300 m and the average thickness of the targeted mineralization (the high-grade portion of the Mn-Shale) in this area is 3.5 m. The southerly area of mineralization is elongated northeast over an area of approximately 570 m by 200 m, and has an average thickness of 2.0 m. The manganese shale outcrops along the easterly scarp slope of the hill. Figure 1 below shows a 3D blockmodel of K.Hill

      A total of eighteen vertical holes were drilled at K.Hill. Two of the drillholes were collared outside the Mineral Resource area, one was drilled for metallurgical purposes and twelve of the exploration drillholes intersected the Mn-Shale. Out of these, eleven holes intersected the high-grade mineralization in the Mn-Shale, but only ten were used for estimation due to poor recovery observed in DDKH18_0006. Drillholes not included in the grade estimate were used in defining the extent of the mineralization and for estimating the low-grade Mn-Shale and surrounding un-mineralized lithologies.

      A Mineral Resource for the high-grade layer of the Mn-Shale has been reported in accordance with NI 43-101 as shown in Table 1 below

      Notes:

      1. All tabulated data have been rounded and as a result minor computational errors may occur.
      2. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves have no demonstrated economic viability.
      3. LOI = Loss on ignition
      4. Density determination was on undried samples and tonnages are reported as wet.

      The cut-off grade calculation was based on the following assumptions: EMM price of USD2,500/t (FOB, Port Elizabeth, South Africa), mining cost of USD35/t, processing cost of USD75/t, G&A cost of USD15/t, transport of USD50/t EMM, metallurgical recovery of 60% of the contained manganese.

      The Mineral Resource is reported at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO, which is the lowest grade block estimate within the mineralization model. Given reasonably assumed high-level cost and revenue assumptions, the QP considers that mineralization at this cut-off grade will satisfy the test for reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction (RPEEE). It should be noted that the cost and revenue assumptions are conceptual in nature and would not satisfy the requirements of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) in terms of NI 43-101.

      The results of preliminary metallurgical test-work suggest that the manganese mineralization at K.Hill may be amenable to processing to produce manganese metal that may be suitable for the battery market.

      Maiden Mineral Resource Estimate

      The mineral resource estimate, prepared by the South Africa based MSA Group, includes an inferred resource of 1.1 million tonnes grading 31.2% manganese oxide (MnO) at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO.

      Mineral Resource summary

      The Mineral Resource estimate was based on geochemical analyses and density measurements of core samples obtained by diamond drilling undertaken by Giyani from 16 April 2018 to 2 July 2018. A total of eighteen vertical holes were drilled at K-Hill. Two of the drill holes were collared outside the Mineral Resource area, one was drilled for metallurgical purposes and twelve of the drill holes intersected the manganese shale. The intersections obtained from ten drill holes were used to estimate the grade of the Mineral Resource. The remainder were used in defining the extent of the mineralization.

      A three dimensional geological model of the major stratigraphic units was constructed using the drillhole logging data. The mineralized envelope within the manganese shale was defined by a 15% MnO threshold and a three dimensional mineralization model was constructed. The grades of MnO, Fe2O3, Al2O3, SiO2 as well as Loss on Ignition (LOI) and density were estimated using inverse distance squared into a block model based on the geological and mineralization model. An adjustment to the modelled tonnage was made in order to account for depletion by historical mining.

      The Mineral Resource was estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) Best Practice Guidelines and is reported in accordance with the 2014 CIM Definition Standards, which have been incorporated by reference into National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101). The Mineral Resource is classified into the Inferred category as shown in Table 1 above.

      The cut-off grade calculation was based on the following assumptions: EMM price of USD2,500/t (FOB), mining cost of USD35/t, processing cost of USD75/t, G&A cost of USD20/t, transport cost of USD50/t EMM, metallurgical recovery of 60% of the contained manganese.

      Dr. Ian Flint, who lead Giyani’s hydrometallurgical testing, states that “ the laboratory scale test-work on samples from the hole drilled for metallurgical test-work indicates that the manganese mineralization and leach chemistry are well suited for solvent extraction. A manganese recovery of over 95% was achieved at this stage.: It is envisaged that this would be further processed to electrolytic manganese metal (EMM).

      The Mineral Resource is reported at a cut-off grade of 18% MnO, which is the lowest grade block estimate within the mineralization model. Given reasonably assumed high-level cost and revenue assumptions, MSA considers that mineralization at this cut-off grade will satisfy the test for reasonable prospects for eventual economic extraction.

      The Inferred Mineral Resource has been tabulated using a number of cut-off grades as shown in Table 2.

      Footnotes:

      1. All tabulated data have been rounded and as a result minor computational errors may occur.
      2. Mineral Resources which are not Mineral Reserves have no demonstrated economic viability.
      3. LOI = Loss on ignition.
      4. Density determination was on undried samples and tonnages are reported as wet.
