Manganese X Energy Corp. has concluded its drill tender process and, after signing a drill contract, intends to commence the spring drill program mid-May at the Battery Hill deposit, on the company's Houlton Woodstock manganese property in New Brunswick. The drill programme will consist of 7-8 holes of approximately 1,600 meters total. The purpose of this spring drill programme is to investigate and establish some key structural issues such as dip, true thicknesses and folding in preparation for designing and implementing a larger resource oriented late summer drill program. Focus of the spring drill program will be on the Sharpe and Moody Hill sectors. The spring program should also help to indicate the tonnage range potential for Red and Grey ore types and provide guidance towards the possibility of achieving higher grades within these two sectors of the property.
In reference to our latest Press Release dated April 6th, 2017: "Manganese X Energy Announces Potential Acquisition", the Company is continuing in its negotiations to acquire an additional manganese deposit, the parties are very close to finalizing a binding letter of intent and expect to have it completed within the next 14-21 days.
