American Manganese Inc.: Artillery Peak Manganese Project Reports Higher Grade Manganese Within Thick Sections of Manganese
American Manganese Inc. (CVE:AMY) reports that it has received results for the 14 drill holes from its 2011 Artillery Peak drilling program.
The press release is quoted as saying:
The Company initiated this drilling program on April 20, 2011 and was completed on June 17, 2011. It was performed using reverse circulation drilling techniques as the mineralization is disseminated and uniform. The reverse circulation drilling is more economic than core drilling and will provide the information needed to evaluate the deposit. A total of 10,607 meters (34,800 ft) was drilled in 86 drill holes.
American Manganese’s President and CEO, Larry W. Reaugh says:
“We are very pleased with the results of the first 20 holes. We are closing information gaps and increasing the amount of known mineralization on the patented claims along the northeast flank of Manganese Mesa. The extensive mineralization at Artillery Peak occurs within sedimentary beds taking the form of paleo-alluvial fans spreading out down slope from a number of source vents. The mineralized intersections continue to demonstrate the expected lateral continuity over good widths, augmented by local higher grade intersections.”
