Nickel

Metal Energy Corp. ("the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to announce the acquisition of 70% interest in the Manibridge project (" Manibridge " or the " Project ") effective August 16, 2022 . Metal Energy also announces it has elected to continue exploration to earn up to 100% interest in Manibridge and expects to complete this milestone in the near term.

"We were enthused about the recent results of Manibridge's Phase 1 drill program of intersecting wide high-grade nickel interceptions in every hole. These intersections and the visuals from Phase 2's drill core continue to affirm our belief that Manibridge has excellent redevelopment potential. We are very pleased to not only complete this milestone but do so well in advance of the original option agreement time frames," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.

The Company has issued a total of 5,000,000 Common Shares to the optionor of the Project, CanAlaska Uranium Ltd., and $100,000 in cash as a part of its notification of intent to achieve 100% ownership.

Metal Energy needs to complete approximately $1 million in additional exploration work on Manibridge, of the required $2 million within this final tranche, to fully satisfy all of the 100% ownership conditions. Metal Energy has 24 months to complete this milestone, however, the Company anticipates completion of this work in the near term and to exercise its ownership rights.

Metal Energy Assays Confirm High-Grade Nickel in All Drill Holes From Phase One Drill Program

Metal Energy Assays Confirm High-Grade Nickel in All Drill Holes From Phase One Drill Program

Highlights Include:
  • 0.92% Ni eq. over 32.95 m starting at 150.45 m including 1.24% Ni eq. over 11.45 m at 169.1 m in drill hole MNB004
  • 0.81% Ni eq. over 13.5 m starting at 337.5 m in drill hole MNB003
  • 1.13% Ni eq. over 9.0 m starting at 700.0 m including 1.62% Ni eq. over 5.0 m at 701.0 m in drill hole MNB006
  • Two drill holes intersected thick composite mineralization over 100 and 80 metres in length with 40% and 55% of those intervals being mineralized, respectively

 Metal Energy Corp. (the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to announce assay results ( Table 1 ) from the Phase One drill program (the " Program ") completed in March and April on the high-grade nickel and copper-cobalt Manibridge project (the " Project " or " Manibridge ") in the Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba.  The Program successfully intersected high-grade nickel-sulphide mineralization over a one kilometre strike length within the shadow of the past-producing Manibridge mine that produced 1.3 million tonnes at 2.55% nickel and 0.27% copper from 1971 to 1977.

"The results from the Program are very encouraging and better than expected. They've answered many of our preliminary questions on Manbridge's Phase 1.  These six holes have;

Metal Energy Starts 10,000 Metre Drill Program on its Manibridge High-Grade Nickel Project

Metal Energy Starts 10,000 Metre Drill Program on its Manibridge High-Grade Nickel Project

Metal Energy Corp. (the " Company " or " Metal Energy ") (TSXV: MERG) is pleased to announce its started its Phase 2 10,000 metre drill program (the " Program ") on the high-grade nickel and copper Manibridge project (the " Project " or " Manibridge ") in the Thompson Nickel Belt, Manitoba . Drilling will focus within the shadow of the past-producing mine that produced 1.3 million tonnes at 2.55% nickel and 0.27% copper from 1971 to 1977.

"We're very excited to start this large drill program on Manibridge. There's a lot of underexplored potential within the shadow of the old mine workings and we intend to prove up the nickel and copper endowment. Our Phase 1 drill program within the same target area had a 100% drill hole intersection success, indicating that our model is accurate and hinting that a lot of nickel-copper sulphide mineralization remains to be discovered along this trend. Our current drill program will include a series of drill fans along twelve 50 metre-spaced drill setups. We believe this drill density will provide sufficient detail to accurately characterize the geology of the mineral system. We recently received permit approvals for up to 100,000 metres of diamond drilling on the Project; this is Phase 2 of a 2-year plan. We're committed to advancing Manibridge efficiently and effectively. There's potential for bulk tonnage mineralization within 300 metres of surface and we intend to start defining it with this drill program," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.

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.
