Proactive Investors Tuesday, 18 December 2018
Walkabout Resources Ltd (ASX:WKT) has increased resource tonnage at its Lindi Jumbo Graphite Project in southeast Tanzania by 41% to 41.8 million tonnes for 4.5 million tonnes of graphite. An updated JORC-compliant resource estimate for Gilbert Arc deposit lifted global resource tonnes from 29.6 million tonnes with 5 million tonnes of high-grade material grading 22.5% total graphitic carbon (TGC). There is now 51% of the resource that will form part of the initial mining area in the measured and indicated categories for 1.67 million tonnes of contained flake graphite.

Resource category breakdown of the Gilbert Arc. Walkabout’s technical director Andrew Cunningham said: “The Gilbert Arc deposit at Lindi Jumbo continues to deliver value for our shareholders. “Unique, very high-grade domains from surface are one of the factors that makes this deposit the standout project amongst its graphite peers in East Africa.” The updated resource estimate was calculated by independent geological consultancy, Trepanier Pty Ltd. Drilling and trenching work It incorporates results from drilling and trenching over the northern inferred resource area as well as a new mineralised zone south of the Gilberts Arc deposit. There were 17 drill holes completed for 1,354 metres and seven trenches for 654 metres. In these trenches, spectacular high-grade mineralisation was encountered at surface with individual metre samples of up to 44% TGC.

High-grade domains extended Domains 7, 8 and 9, which contain the 22.5% grades, have been extended towards the north and remain open. These high-grade domains form the core of the current mine plan.
