Manganese X Energy Corp.(V.MN) is pleased to announce assay results from the recently completed diamond drill program at its Houlton Woodstock manganese property located in Carleton County, 5 km NW of Woodstock, New Brunswick. The drilling program consisted of 16 holes totaling 3,589 meters, and was designed as an initial evaluation of three historic manganese occurrences on the property (Iron Ore Hill, Sharpe Farm and Moody Hill). In addition, the drill program provides core samples for metallurgical testing, planned for 2017.
Five holes totaling 1,051 m were completed in the Iron Ore Hill sector of the property and eleven holes totalling 2,538 m in the Sharpe Farm – Moody Hill sector. Drilling was completed over a 1.8 km strike length of the prospective manganese occurrence trend. During the drill program, emphasis was placed on the Sharpe Farm – Moody Hill sector, henceforth called the Battery Hill Deposit by the Company.
