This resource upgrade represents another major step forward in the Company’s plans for development of the Manono project. This update provides further assurances as to the demonstrated world-class scale, grade and nature of the Manono project. We are encouraged by the results of the upgrade in resource categories which were expected given the results of the drilling program. This ongoing work shows us that Manono will continue to grow significantly and will be underpinned by a high grade Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource for the Majority of the Roche Dure pegmatite drilled to date.’

According to the announcement, the greatly increased confidence levels of the Roche Dure Mineral resource is ‘more than sufficient to support the production schedules and financial modelling within the 5 Mtpa scoping’, now close to completion.

AVZ Minerals share price 2019 outlook

Things are looking more positive for AVZ Minerals share price as we head further and further into 2019.

With Manono confirmed as the world’s largest lithium deposit, we are increasingly confident that the project will continue to develop into production and potentially become a world leading source of lithium and tin,’ Mr Ferguson said

Investors should keep watch of this company.

More to come.
