Mining Weekly reported that an independent review of IronClad Mining Ltd.’s (ASX:IFE) South Australia-based Wilcherry Hill iron project confirms its manganese potential.

As quoted in the market news:

Independent reviewer Arc Resources on Tuesday reported that IronClad’s most recent drilling campaign had intersected significant manganese at the Hercules East prospect, which added weight to the prospect of discovering significant manganese resources.

Work at the Pier Dam prospect had also shown encouraging results, with Arc noting that additional work in the area would enable IronClad to generate drilling targets.

‘The potential to discover additional occurrences, and develop and exploit manganese on the IronClad tenements is highly feasible. The manganese complements the existing iron-ore, as well as the current plans to develop the mining and upgrade port infrastructure,’ the Arc review read.
