Montezuma Mining drilling flagship manganese deposit in Western Australia


Montezuma Mining (ASX: MZM) will commence metallurgical test work drilling at its Butcherbird Manganese project, Western Australia, in the coming days.

The diamond drilling program comprises 16 vertical holes to 35 metres deep, and one angled hole to 60 metres.

The deeper angled hole is designed to provide structural and provenance information about the supergene-style manganese mineralisation observed at surface.  

All holes will be cored from surface to test four of the eight mineralised zones at the project.

Geological and geotechnical logging will be completed on site prior to core being transported to Perth laboratories for classification, petrology studies, density measurements and metallurgical test work.

Butherbird's eight resource areas currently total 119.0 million tonnes at 11.6% manganese using a 10% cut off grade, and an additional 55.9 million tonnes at 9.3% manganese in the 8 to 10% range.
