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;

  1. Intersected high-grade nickel mineralization in every drill hole which demonstrates mineralization over a minimum one kilometre strike length;
  2. Discovered at least 4 zones of mineralization which provides for multiple zones of overlapping mineralization;
  3. Intersected thick intervals of continuous mineralization at shallow depths less than 300 m from surface which could be amenable to bulk tonnage mining operations; and
  4. Filled in gaps where no mineralization was previously defined which opens the mineralization potential in all directions.

We're excited to continue exploring and developing Manibridge with our Phase Two and future drill programs," said James Sykes , CEO of Metal Energy.

The Program consisted of six diamond drill holes for a total of 2,350 metres.  Drill hole collar locations are provided in Table 2.   Figure 1 shows the locations of the drill hole results on a long-section of mineralization.

Drill holes MNB003 and MNB004 intersected thick accumulations of composite mineralization defined over 100 and 80 metres drill hole length with 40% and 55% of those intervals being mineralized, respectively.  These results demonstrate the continuity and thickness potential of mineralization that exists at Manibridge.

The grade-thickness results (Ni eq% x metres) of the first reported interval from MNB004 is better than a number of historic drill hole intersections that were part of the mine workings, demonstrating significant quantities of nickel sulphide mineralization were left in the ground well-outside of the mined area.

Drill holes MNB001 and MNB003 both filled gaps in the mineralization model defined by historic drill hole results which indicates that mineralization is still open along strike and at depth.  Both depth and strike length potential remain largely untested at Manibridge and will be the targets for future drill programs.

Drill holes MNB002, MNB004 and MNB005 all intersected mineralization starting shallower than approximately 200 m from surface.  All drill holes (MNB001 to MNB006) remain open in the up-dip direction and it's presumed that mineralization continues in this direction which provides potential for bulk tonnage open pit style of mining operations.

Drill hole MNB006 successfully defined the continuation of high-grade mineralization beneath the old mine workings indicating that mineralization controls of the Manibridge system are continuous down to at least 700 m depth and could continue deeper.  All drill holes remain open in the down-dip direction.

Geochemical analysis was completed at Saskatchewan Research Council's Geoanalytical Laboratories in Saskatoon , Saskatchewan.  The samples were analyzed for whole rock and multi-element results using ICP1 Total 4 Acid Digestion methodologies.

Metal Energy is the operator of Manibridge and owns 49% of the Project. Metal Energy has surpassed the work commitments required to earn 70% ownership, with a short-term objective to achieve 100% ownership of Manibridge from CanAlaska Uranium Ltd.

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.

Osisko Metals Establishes a Technical Consultation Committee to Develop the Pit Dewatering Plan for Gaspé Copper

Osisko Metals Establishes a Technical Consultation Committee to Develop the Pit Dewatering Plan for Gaspé Copper

Osisko Metals Incorporated (the " Company " or " Osisko Metals ") ( TSX-V: OM ; OTCQX: OMZNF ; FRANKFURT: 0B51 ) is pleased to announce the creation of a technical consultation committee to assist in developing a plan for the dewatering of the Mount Copper open pit at Gaspé Copper, located close to Murdochville in the Gaspé region of Quebec. The committee is led by Osisko Metals' newly-hired VP Environment and Sustainable Development, Dr. Ann Lamontagne (see below).

Since closure and remediation of the former Gaspé Copper mine site, the Mount Copper open pit has flooded. In order to evaluate the viability of restarting open pit mining operations at Gaspé Copper, the pit must be dewatered as soon as possible to allow for improved deeper in-pit resource evaluation and geotechnical drilling. Osisko Metals is committed to doing so in a responsible manner that is inclusive of environmental factors and key stakeholders in the region. Following ongoing environmental and engineering studies, Osisko Metals will elaborate a plan in collaboration with the committee and will then go through necessary steps to obtain permits from government authorities.
