First Graphite - Hikkaduwa

The southern license consists of 10 square kilometers of exploration grids. These grids were selected due to the high occurrence of historical workings and extensive residual graphite at their surface.

Many access roads within the license area are littered with residual vein graphite. This, in combination with historical concrete winch plinths in the area, provides MRL with confidence for the future of the project area for exploration and mining.

Exploration activities in this project area will include:

•  Detailed geological mapping, concentrating initially on areas surrounding  historical workings

•  Possible clearing selected abandoned underground workings to provide 

    access for mapping access of underground graphite vein sets

•  Geophysical mapping of selected areas
