READ: Canyon Resources identifies 70 bauxite targets through survey at Cameroon Project

Last week the company identified more than 70 additional bauxite plateaux across three permits (Minim Martap, Makan and Ngaoundal) at the project using a light imaging, detection and ranging (LiDAR) and high-resolution ortho-photographic survey.

Canyon then processed data from the survey into a highly detailed elevation model (DEM).

The newly identified plateaux represent 65% of all the plateaux surface area identified at the target elevation on the three Minim Martap project permits.

An independent assessment of the existing Camrail network adjacent to the project was also completed in March 2019 which concluded that the existing rail line from the project to Cameroon’s largest city Doula has the capacity to transport commercial tonnages of bauxite.

Canyon’s managing director Philip Gallagher said: “The study confirmed our belief that the existing rail line is in good condition and has the capacity to transport bauxite from Minim Martap to the Kribi Port via the future rail link.”
