GIYANI COMMENCES PRELIMINARY ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT AND BULK SAMPLE CHARACTERIZATION
Giyani Metals Corp. has engaged SRK Consulting to complete a preliminary economic assessment (PEA) at its K.Hill manganese deposit in Botswana. Furthermore, the company has also engaged WorleyParsons South Africa to conduct a bulk sample characterization test for its direct shipping ore (DSO) program from the K.Hill and Otse manganese deposits.
The scope of the PEA study by SRK will include geology, mining, processing, water management, infrastructure, environment and financial modelling, and will provide conclusions and recommendations for the definitive feasibility study (DFS), which is planned to commence in Q3 2019.
The scope of the bulk sample characterization testing by WorleyParsons will include sample collection criteria, lab testing and process flowsheet design. Upon the completion of this engagement, Giyani will have a more detailed understanding of the economics of the DSO program as well as the specifications of the various manganese products that can be produced from K.Hill and Otse.

"The commencement of the PEA for K.Hill and the DSO test program are very important steps to kick-start our operational program for 2019. We will have a very active year with multiple work streams developing in parallel as we work towards our ultimate goal of producing high-purity electrolytic manganese metal (EMM) for the battery electric vehicle market."
The company has appointed Aamer Siddiqui as chief financial officer. Mr. Siddiqui is a chartered professional accountant (CPA) and chartered accountant (CA).
