Mkango said all samples have now been transported overland from Malawi to a specialist assay laboratory, Scientific Services in Cape Town, South Africa.

Preparation of samples for heavy mineral separation is in progress, following which detailed mineralogical analysis will take place, the company added and it looks forward to updating the market further once it has received and evaluated the assay and mineralogical results.

The auger holes included a grid of holes centred around hole A6, drilled in June 2020 to 8.9m depth, which produced nine consecutive samples that contain between 4.10% and 9.01% total heavy minerals (specific gravity greater than 2.95) and grade between 3.17% and 4.09% titanium dioxide (TiO2).
