Tyranna’s managing director Bruno Seneque said “This is an outstanding deal for Tyranna and our shareholders which we have secured via a scrip issue.

“Historical mining results suggest that this area holds some of the highest grade cobalt mines that can be found in the district.

“In the 1920’s the mines in this area produced approximately 20 tonnes of cobalt rich ore from copper mining and historical grades were reported between 6% and 29%.”

No modern mining techniques used

Seneque added: “No modern mining techniques have been used here and we are confident that good exploration and mining methods will handsomely reward the Company here at Goodsprings.

“The acquisition of US Cobalt adds Goodsprings Cobalt and Base Metals Project as another high value asset to Tyranna’s project portfolio and enhances our value as a diversified resources exploration and development company.”
