Highway South

HIGHWAY SOUTH (WA)
Interest:  Manhattan 100%
Operator:  Manhattan Corporation Limited

Highway South is centred 5km along the palaeochannel to the northeast of Double 8. This prospect is within granted licence E28/1898 within the QVSNR (Figures 2 & 3).

The drilled uranium mineralisation at Highway South is also hosted in palaeochannels within reduced carbonaceous sands and weathered granitic sands in a confined aquifer overlying crystalline granite basement.

Highway South Exploration Target

The Highway South Exploration Target, reported in January 2014, is based on 33 drill holes totalling approximately 1,980 metres of drilling and down hole gamma logs. This drilling, on approximately 400m x 2km centres along the palaeochannel, is considered too wide to define a Mineral Resource to an inferred resource status.

Exploration Results have identified drilled Exploration Targets with uranium mineralisation potential at a 200ppm U3O8 cutoff, for Highway South of 12 to 24Mt grading 250 to 350ppm U3O8 containing 3,600 to 7,300 tonnes or 8 to 16Mlb of contained U3O8.

In accordance with clause 17 of the JORC Code 2012, the potential quantity and grade reported as Exploration Targets in this report must be considered conceptual in nature as there has been insufficient exploration and drilling to define a Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration and drilling will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource.

On gaining exploration access to E28/1898, and approval of Manhattan’s POW by DMP, the Company plans to complete approximately 250 aircore drill holes for 20,000 metres of infill resource definition drilling on 400 x 100m centres along the defined palaeochannel at Highway South. This drilling program, including the resource definition drilling planned for Double 8 and the Stallion South and Ponton prospects, will be completed within approximately one year of POW approval (Figure 3).

COMPETENT PERSON’S STATEMENT

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.
