The company initiated its Phase 1 Exploration Program in Brazil on March 3rd. After an intensive review of the filed NI 43-101 Brasnorte Summary Research Report prepared by John Harper P.Geol. and announced on March 30th, ground work was scheduled on the 4 Juina claims located north of Juina, MT. The claim package totals 39,667.89 hectares in size.
Maxtech’s exploration work performed to date focused on claim 866872/2016, part of the Juina claim group. In this area 3 pits were hand dug and samples sent to SGS Geosol Laboratórios LTDA, Belo Horizonte, Brazil for analysis. The 3 assays were received by Maxtech and analyses details were announced by the Company in a news release on April 28th. The samples returned the following assay values; MLB-01 52.9% Mn, MLB-02 55.9% Mn and MLB-03 51.5% Mn. Further to initial pitting there were 16 auger holes drilled covering an area 50 m by 25 m, centered around pit MLB-03. The mineralized horizon occurred from surface to an average depth of 0.6 m. Some peripheral auger holes did not encounter Mn at the surface but are now being followed up with further prospecting and remain open as exploration continues. Pits MLB-01 and MLB-02, located in the same claim, were sampled and also returned high assay values for manganese. These mineralized pits have not yet been followed up. Detailed exploration is on-going.
The Maxtech team is Brazilian based and organized by MLB Mining and Marcio Bastos who has led successful manganese exploration teams for companies in the region. Mr. John Harper B.Sc., P.Geol, who is a Qualified Person with respect to Maxtech’s manganese project as defined under National Instrument 43-101 is in charge of all exploration activities for the Company in Brazil.
Peter Wilson, CEO said, “The company’s preliminary assay results are fantastic, therefore Phase 2 exploration will be immediately ramped up. The grades of Mn found are directly attributable to our on-the-ground prospecting team in Brazil.”
