Full name:
Maligreen Gold Mine
Mwana interest:
Mwana Africa has a 50% interest in the dormant Maligreen Gold Mine. The interest was acquired through the purchase of Cluff Mining in December 2005. Pan African (Private) Limited, a Zimbabwe registered company, holds the other 50% and manages the property.
Geology and history:
The Maligreen deposit is located in the Nkayi-Silobela Greenstone Belt approximately 70km west of Kwekwe. Reunion Mining (Zimbabwe) Limited discovered the deposit in 1995 defining a gold resource through a percussion and diamond drilling programme. Mineralization has been identified in lenses in an envelope over 50m wide with a strike length of 900m and to a depth of 200m with the deposit open in depth and to the north.
The ore body has been mined to the base of the weathering by two small open pits. The mine produced 22,500oz of gold by heap-leaching 213,000t of weathered ore from August 2000 to September 2002. Irrigation of the dumps continued to August 2004 with some minor gold recovery.
The site is currently maintained on a care and maintenance basis.
