TWO companies in Fiji are carrying out exploration works for potential mineral manganese ore.

In an Information Ministry statement issued yesterday, director Mineral Resources Department Malakai Finau said Viti Mining had been granted a permit to mine and had worked on its first shipment recently.

“Oak Mines is into advanced stages of exploration and had expressed interest to mine and are working towards lodging their application,” Mr Finau said.
