Manganese X Update - Metallurgical Tests Successful, Spring Drill Program Completed

 

Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - June 29, 2017) - Manganese X Energy Corp. (TSXV: MN) (FSE: 9SC2) (TRADEGATE:9SC2) (OTC Pink: SNCGF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the spring drill program has been completed at its Houlton Woodstock manganese property located in Carleton County, 5 km NW of Woodstock, New Brunswick. The drill program consisted of 9 holes totaling 1599 meters on the Sharpe and Moody Hill areas of the deposit where previous drilling in 2016 intersected MnO grades such as 16.73% over 32.85m (107.8 feet) and 13.87% over 52.6m (172.5 feet) (news release dated Feb 14, 2017). Assay results should be in-hand by mid to end of July.

 

Manganese X Energy Corp. is also pleased to announce that it has received the results from a series of diagnostic leaching tests conducted by two of Canada's renowned  test process research laboratories, in its pursuit of developing a value added manganese product to furnish the North American Li-ion battery market The kinetics of the leaching process appear very favourable to high levels of manganese extraction of up to 96% with a short contact time, while the solubility of iron and other alkali metals remains low which could simplify downstream processing requirements.

 

With these positive results in hand the company is now in the process of an RFP (request for proposal) for a marketing and economic cost assessment project to investigate and pursue a variety of marketable manganese products. This economic and cost assessment project will be aimed primarily at the li-ion battery production sector in order to select the optimal combinations of co-products and by-products (concentrates) for further technical development and future initiatives. "I am very optimistic from our recent high percentage extraction leaching test results and these results further validate our findings towards production of various value added manganese product concentrates to include EMD- Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide for Li-ion batteries, Electric Vehicle batteries as well as solar panels back-up storage units. We are committed in aggressively pursuing our goal of becoming the first North American manganese mining company to produce a viable zero emissions manganese value added product," stated Martin Kepman CEO.

 

We are still further continuing our due diligence of our potential acquisition of an additional manganese property.

Manganese X Energy would like to acknowledge the financial support provided by the Province of New Brunswick through the New Brunswick Junior Mining Assistance Program (NBJMAP).
