Results released earlier this week has confirmed a hunch by Canadian project developer Giyani Gold that the Transvaal Supergroup, which hosts roughly 80% of the world’s manganese reserves, extends from South Africa into south-eastern Botswana, giving it first-mover advantage in an area long ignored by geologists.

TSX-V-listed Giyani said initial surface sampling programme conducted at the historic Kgwakgwe Hill manganese mine, located in the Kanye Basin, confirmed high-grade mineralised shale grading 58% to 61% manganese oxide.
