Manganese X Energy Metallurgical Update and Potential Metallurgical Project Collaboration with the National Research Council Canada

V.MN, Maganese X energy

Manganese X Energy Corp.(V.MN) has received preliminary results from SGS-Lakefield of chemical analyses, mineralogical characterizations and assessments of the Company’s Sharpe Farm and Moody Hill occurrences at its manganese property near Houlton-Woodstock, New Brunswick. Based on the initial drill assay results, chemical analyses showed manganese contents of 9.42 and 10.45% Mn in the Red and Grey composites respectively. From the X-ray diffraction and Qemscan (Quantitative Evaluation of Materials by Scanning Electron Microscopy) studies it was determined that the manganese occurs in several mineralogical forms including carbonates and silicates where the concentration across the various manganese-bearing species averaged 23% Mn (grey) and 27% Mn (red) with individual values of up to 45% Mn. In addition to the determination of the mineralogical composition of the samples submitted, PMA or particle map analysis was also carried out which permits measurement of individual mineral grain sizes and liberation characteristics. This information will prove invaluable as the Company moves towards assessing proposals from various research establishments with the goal of upgrading the ore to produce a marketable manganese concentrate.
