Canadian-based Giyani Gold Corporation announced on Monday that its regional surface mapping and sampling programme currently underway in the Kanye Basin in Botswana has confirmed multiple deposits of manganese.The company’s president Wajd Boubou said many of the deposits in Kanye are located within favourable geological horizons, similar to that at Kgwakgwe Hill in the Kanye Basin manganese deposit where the company has recently reported 60 manganese oxide. 

The company’s geologists have reported multiple occurrences of visible manganese in an area that extends around 70 kilometres to the north east and 50km to the east of Kgwakgwe Hill reaching the border with South Africa and within a short distance from Gaborone, the capital of Botswana.

“This proximity to major infrastructure gives our project yet another significant logistical advantage,” Boubou said.

He noted that it was “worth noting that our geological team has discovered several old, small scale, manganese mines during this phase of sampling.”
