The Project consists of two exploration licence applications E46/1456 and E46/1457, which cover an area of 51Km2. Access to the Project is through the all-weather Port Headland-Marble Bar-Ripon Hills-Nifty Road.
A large amount of historical work has been completed across the Donkey, Crossroads and Wandanya Prospects, with a total of 113 holes for 1,975m. Drilling has delivered significant, near-surface drill intercepts, with results of up to 40.8% Mn. Rock chip results of up to 64.96% Mn at Wandanya and 55.2% at Crossroads yet to be drill tested.
Moving forward, Firebird’s plans include further drilling and development work to delineate a Mineral Resource, which can be immediately supplied into a growing end user market for manganese.
