Giyani Metals Enters Into Research Collaboration With Rhodes University
TSX VENTURE: EMM
Research collaboration agreement with Rhodes University
As part of its research efforts, Giyani established a relationship with Professor Hari Tsikos, head of Postgraduate Research in Iron and Manganese Ore Resources (PRIMOR) at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa. PRIMOR is a formal research unit established in the Geology Department at Rhodes University in early 2014. It was initially conceived and ultimately developed as a formal research entity under the leadership of Professor Hari Tsikos. The primary goal of PRIMOR is to provide a hub for world-class research on the economic geology of iron and manganese. After a site visit by Professor Tsikos, to the Company’s Kanye Manganese Project in Botswana, it was proposed that Giyani and PRIMOR join efforts in a research program that entails one PhD level project to be entitled: “Assessment of the origin and economic potential of battery grade supergene manganese mineralization in southern Africa” and one MSc level project entitled: “Understanding the development of primary and secondary manganese enrichments in Transvaal-aged rocks at Lobatse, Southeastern, Botswana”.
Prof. Tsikos, head of PRIMOR and prospective supervisor of the proposed research projects, stated:
