Metal Energy Corp. ("the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 49% interest in the Manibridge project (" Manibridge " or the " Project ") effective March 22, 2022 . The Company has also elected to continue exploration to earn up to 70% interest in Manibridge. These transactions are a part of Metal Energy's option agreement to earn up to 100% of Manibridge.

"This is a monumental step forward for Metal Energy as we advance the Manibridge project.  We firmly believe Manibridge has the potential to contribute to the evolving global electrification transition, particularly in the electric vehicle and renewable energy markets.  Manibridge was a past-producer of high-grade, high-tenor sulphide nickel and the historic operators left a lot of high-grade nickel in the rocks.  Our current and planned 10,000 metre summer drill program are designed to help us understand the geological controls of nickel mineralization in order to advance the Project towards a mineral resource estimate," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.

CanAlaska are the operators of the on-going diamond drilling program within the shadow of the past-producing Manibridge mine which produced 1.3 million tonnes at 2.55% nickel and 0.27% copper from 1971 to 1977.  The drill program is planned for 3,000 metres with 9 drill holes within a kilometre strike of the Manibridge mine (see Metal Energy news release dated March 7, 2022 ).

The Company has issued a total of 1,198,630 Common Shares to the optionor of the Project, CanAlaska Uranium Ltd. (" CanAlaska "), at a price of $0.146 per Common Share (20 day VWAP) and has also granted a 1% NSR royalty on two claims and a 2% NSR royalty on all other claims.‎  The Common Shares issued have a four-month resale restriction.

Metal Energy Receives 100,000 Metre Drill Permit for 3-Years on Manibridge Project

Metal Energy Receives 100,000 Metre Drill Permit for 3-Years on Manibridge Project

Metal Energy Corp. (the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to announce it has received a 3-year Work Permit (the " Permit ") from the province of Manitoba to allow for 100,000 metres of diamond drilling on the high-grade nickel and copper Manibridge Project (the " Project " or " Manibridge ") in the Thompson Nickel Belt of Manitoba .

"This is a big step forward for Metal Energy as operators advancing Manibridge.  The Permit provide us the necessary approval to continue definition drilling of the Manibridge Mine target, expanding on the Manibridge North high-grade nickel deposit, and drill testing kilometres of prospective greenfield exploration targets over the next 3 years ( Figure 1). We are optimistic that there are more high-grade nickel and copper greenfield discoveries to be made on the Project. Still, we are more confident that the historic Manibridge Mine target has significant growth opportunities for a viable nickel-copper resource.  We are weeks away from starting Phase Two's 10,000 metre summer drill campaign, which is largely focused on delineating a resource on the Manibridge Mine target," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.

Metal Energy Corp. ("the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to provide an update on the upcoming drill program planned for the high-grade nickel Manibridge project (the " Project " or " Manibridge ") in the Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba . The Project incorporates a past-producing mine that produced 1.3 million tonnes at 2.55% nickel and 0.27% copper between 1971 and 1977.

"Drilling at Manibridge remains our top priority as our internal projections for the Project suggest it has the potential to yield a bulk mineable resource. Our first drill program for Manibridge is scheduled to start within the next 3 to 4 weeks. Drill targets have been planned to assess historic high-grade nickel drill intercepts beneath the old mine workings and along strike of the past-producing mine, as well as targeting areas within the mine's shadow that remain untested. Nickel demand is forecast to grow by 2x to 4x within the next 10 to 20 years spurred on by the electrification revolution and battery storage systems to complement a global effort to replace fossil fuels with renewable energy sources," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.
