Reunion Gold Corporation (TSXV:RGD) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Reunion Manganese Inc., has been awarded by the Government of Guyana four (4) prospecting licenses (PLs) to conduct exploration and development activities for manganese in the North West District of Guyana, South America.

The press release is quoted as saying:

The PLs cover an area of 45,729 acres and are centered in and around the abandoned manganese mine at Matthews Ridge and Pipiani which was operated by a subsidiary of Union Carbide Corporation from 1962 to 1968. The closure of the mine in 1968 was mainly due to the large fall in the price of manganese. In excess of 1.66 million tonnes of manganese concentrate were shipped from the mine site during that period.
