A trenching programme at Aim-listed Armadale Capital’s Mahenge Liandu graphite project, in Tanzania, has intersected high-grade, coarse-flake mineralisation over a width of 73 m.   Three additional trenches are being excavated to support structural modelling of the deposit and prioritise higher-grade areas of mineralisation for drilling and bulk sampling. “This, combined with the consistently encouraging test work returned from the project, which has shown that purity of up to 99.99% graphitic carbon can be achieved from graphite concentrates, reinforces our view that Mahenge Liandu has the potential to be a strategically important high-grade graphite mining operation,” director Nick Johansen said in a statement on Wednesday.   He added that the company’s immediate focus was to continue the trenching programme, which would support the structural modelling of the deposit, and initiate the 2017 drilling campaign.
