Gwesan Vanadium Project

Recently, Protean gave GeoGeny Consultants the green light to commence a four-phase exploration program at Gwesan.

The aim of the initial phasis to identify vanadium prospectivity at Gwesan. The company plans to undertake a field reconnaissance program — which includes multi-commodity soil and trench sampling campaigns, approvals and permits — in the first quarter of 2021.

The second stage of the program is looking at defining anomalous zones of vanadium mineralisation to be followed up with auger drilling and aeromagnetic surveying.

Based on the first and second stage results, the company will then plan a diamond drilling program to test vanadium targets.
