Drilling includes 2,500 metres of diamond drilling and 8,300 metres of reverse circulation drilling.

The drilling program aims to define a maiden JORC resource, currently targeted for mid-2018.

Significantly, preliminary mineralogy confirms the potential for very large flake graphite deposits.

Previous diamond drilling at Maniry returned graphite mineralisation within 50 metres of surface.

Intersections included 10 metres at 10.2% total graphitic carbon (TGC), 12 metres at 11.6% TGC and 14 metres at 11.3% TGC.
