The Highway uranium prospect is located in E28/1523 and E39/1143 centred 15 kilometres northwest of the Double 8 uranium deposit at Ponton (Figures 2 & 3).

In 2010 Manhattan completed 275 vertical aircore drill holes totalling 17,670m and 3 duplicate sonic drill holes totalling 144m of drilling along 10 kilometres of the palaeochannel at Highway (Figure 3). Drilling has been completed on 400m spaced lines with holes drilled at 100m centres along each grid line across the palaeochannel within mineralised zones. All drill holes were gamma logged.

As at Stallion, the resource potential for Highway is being assessed by the Company’s independent resource consultants. The secular disequilibrium data also indicates a positive disequilibrium factor of 1 to over 3 above 80ppm U3O8 and confirms that a disequilibrium factor for the Highway prospect may be significantly higher than the x1.2 currently assumed for the reported resource estimates at Ponton. Again, the application of the high resolution Germanium HpGe down hole probe when drilling recommences, that detects protactinium isotope Pa214 which reaches equilibrium with U238 within days, will establish (with the required statistical confidence) the conversion of the high resolution gamma logs to uranium grades for reporting of resource estimates at Highway.

Apart from some shallow lignite hosted uranium mineralisation encountered along the northern part of the palaeochannel at Highway, the geological controls and style of the channel sand hosted uranium mineralisation at Highway are similar to the mineralisation encountered at Double 8 and Stallion.


The information in this report that relates to reported Exploration Results or Mineral Resources is based on information compiled by Mr Alan J Eggers, who is a Corporate Member of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (“AusIMM”). Alan Eggers is a professional geologist and an executive director of Manhattan Corporation Limited. Mr Eggers has sufficient experience that is relevant to the style of mineralisation and type of mineral deposits being reported on in this report and to the activity which he is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2012 Edition of the Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves “JORC Code 2012”. Mr Eggers consents to the inclusion in this report of the information on the Exploration Results or Mineral Resources based on his information in the form and context in which it appears.
