Black Canyon was established to explore and delineate manganese, copper and cobalt targets located in the mineral rich Pilbara region of Western Australia.
Our projects comprise more than 2,600sqkm of prospective tenure (granted ELs + ELAs) in a premier mining jurisdiction (East Pilbara), close to the operating Woodie Woodie manganese mine, Element 25 Ltd’s Butcherbird manganese development project and Firebird Ltd’s Sixty Sixer manganese mineral resource.
The manganese targets within the Carawine JV Projects range from grassroots to advanced exploration, with previous work identifying multiple outcropping manganese trends south of the Woodie Woodie operation with high to moderate manganese assay results previously reported in outcrop sampling and drilling.
Drilling at Flanagan Bore has intersected thick intervals of shale-hosted manganese with similarities in terms of grade Mn% and style to mineralisation currently being developed at the Butcherbird project owned by Element 25 (ASX:E25). Following a maiden mineral resource estimate of 15Mt @ 11.3% Mn in October 2021, drilling has extended the mineralised zone to 1,000m x 800m with a mineral resource upgrade due in H1 2022.
Black Canyon’s projects are prospective for both Woodie Woodie (hydrothermal) and Butcherbird (supergene) styles of mineralisation. The Companies portfolio offer an exciting opportunity for investors to gain exposure to mineral development opportunities that feed into the steel manufacturing and evolving energy storage space.
