Firm starts phase 1 of exploration in Tanzania Send to a friend Thursday, 10 March 2011 21:59 Vancouver. A mining exploration company, the Tanzania Minerals Corp, has started drilling its 100 per cent owned Mrangi property in northern Tanzania, according to a companys statement. The drilling programme is being implemented to test mineralized outcrops and subcrops on the property associated with banded iron formation, and also the strike extension of the Phoenix mine vein swarm. Drilling targets were identified based on the interpretation of ground and airborne geophysics, shallow solid geochemistry and satellite image structural interpretation in an area masked by overburden. A regional structural study based on Landsat satellite imagery has been commissioned and will be performed by Murphy Geological.
