Sovereign Metals has announced Phase 9 drill results from Kasiya, the Company’s flagship, large, high-grade rutile deposit in Malawi. This large batch of over 200 drill-holes has further substantially extended the high-grade mineralised envelope to 89 km2.
Sovereign’s very large and expanding rutile footprint in Malawi could prove to be one of the world’s most significant sources of the highest purity and most environmentally sustainable titanium feedstock.
Sovereign’s MD Dr Julian Stephens comments:
“This drilling has served to significantly further increase the high-grade, near surface rutile mineralisation at Kasiya. We now have a grand total of well over a hundred square kilometres of mineralisation defined across Kasiya and Nsaru.
“This is the final batch of results we have been awaiting in order to complete the dataset required for our maiden Kasiya JORC resource estimate.”
“These very large, high-grade areas of mineralisation may well become one of the largest primary rutile deposits in the world.
“Unlocking a new, globally significant source of direct feed natural rutile could help meet the growing demand for low carbon feedstock across the titanium industry supply-chain.”
