Nickel

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.

10,000 Metre Phase Two Drill Program on Manibridge

Preparations for Manibridge's Phase Two 10,000 metre diamond drill program are underway, with Metal Energy now acting as operator of the Project. The drilling contractor, accommodations, support services, and the Permit have all been secured.  The Company anticipates mobilization of the drill program during the first days of June.

The Company has approximately $5.5 million in cash and is fully-funded to carry out the Phase Two drill program.

Recently Completed Phase One Drill Program on Manibridge

The recently completed Phase One drill campaign included six drill holes (MNB001 to MNB006) for over 2,350 metres.  All drill holes successfully intersected nickel-copper sulphide mineralization; assay results are pending. Confirmation of nickel-copper sulphides ranged from 3.7 m thickness to 16.8 m thick, including a couple of drill holes intersecting small occurrences of massive net-textured sulphides. For full details, see Metal Energy news release dated May 2 , 2022.

The Company is preparing an in-depth video presentation to detail Phase One's drill program results, including its interpretations of mineralization controls and vectors for higher-grade nickel and copper occurrences.

  • Cut-off grade = 0.3% Ni
  • Maximum consecutive internal dilution = 3.0 m downhole
  • Historic drill holes have not been verified or confirmed with twinned drill holes
  • Metal Energy considers "high-grade" to be nickel mineralization with a concentration greater than 0.8% Ni.
  • All reported depths and intervals are drill hole depths and intervals, unless otherwise noted, and do not represent true thicknesses, which have yet to be determined.

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.
