American Manganese Inc.: Drill Hole Ap11-87 Returns 6.47% Manganese Over 15.6 Meters (50 Feet) Within 37.5 Meters (120 Feet) of 3.95% Manganese
American Manganese Inc (CVE:AMY) reports that it has received results for the following 10 drill holes from its 2011 Artillery Peak drilling program.
The press release is quoted as saying:
The Company initiated the drilling program on April 20, 2011 and completed on June 17, 2011. It was performed using reverse circulation drilling techniques as the mineralization is disseminated and uniform. A total of 10,607 meters (34,800 ft) was drilled in 86 drill holes.
American Manganese’s President and CEO, Mr Larry Reaugh says:
“We have now reported for just over half of the program drill holes, and are very pleased with the results. The results of Drill Hole 87 are particularly outstanding. 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. As expected, the mineralized intersections continue to demonstrate the expected lateral continuity over good widths, augmented by local higher grade intersections.”
