Ghana Manganese Company Ltd has a rich history of exploration discoveries and mine development. Our team of geologists and engineers is highly professional in discharging their duties. We keep reviewing our portfolio (mines and reserves) to make sure it is enhanced and that we are in good standing for future growth.

RECONNAISSANCE AND PROSPECTING LICENSES

Manganese mineralization within the Nsuta and Yakau Properties continues to be very promising. In view of this, GMC has continued to invest in exploration to expand the footprint of the mineralized area: 

  • The Yakau prospecting license covers 149km2 with manganese and gold mining potential. The greenfield project is strategically positioned and only 35km from Takoradi Port ;
  • The Wakawaka and Seripe reconnaissance licenses are providing manganese ore development opportunities in the North of Ghana.

It is estimated that a total of 2M tonnes @ 26.0% Mn for pit B and 2 Mt @ 25.7% Mn is expected to be realized after a planned drilling campaign in Nsuta. Also, approximately 36Mt @ 23.2% Mn resources will be added to the mineral resource base of GMC upon completion of the exploration work for this year.

Sterilization drilling is also planned for designated areas for waste dump extension and to test for the occurrence of detrital ore for potential extraction.
