Geochemical and Geophysical Surveys Initiated for American Manganese’s Rare Earth Property

 

 

 

 

 

Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc. (TSX-V: AMY) (OTC US: AMYZF) (FSE: 2AM) is pleased to announce the initiation of rock and soil geochemical surveys on the Company’s 100% owned Lonnie rare earth element and niobium project. The mining claims are located approximately 6 kilometers east of Manson Creek (300 kilometers northwest of Prince George, BC). The Lonnie property features aegirine and biotie sovite (calcium-rich carbonatite) with accessory apatite, magnetite, zircon and minor pyrochlore, pyrite, pyrrhotite, and columbite.

 

In 1955, Kennecott Explorations completed trenching on the Lonnie and outlined a zone approximately 480 X 15 meters in area with niobium mineralization (MEMPR Property File, 1960). The carbonatites also contain enriched rare earth elements and zircon. Fieldwork in 2019 on the Lonnie property included 39 rock, and 124 soil samples being taken from a 1,000 X 400 meter area adjacent to the Wolverine Fault. Eleven out of 39 rock chip samples are currently being re-analyzed due to cerium, niobium, and neodymium values being above detection limits. Four out of 124 soil samples are also being re-analyzed due to cerium values being above detection limits. Results of rock and soil sample geochemical sampling will be announced when laboratory results are completed.

 

“Both the rare earths and niobium are now listed as Critical Minerals by the U.S. Government,” noted Larry Reaugh, CEO of American Manganese. Inc. “And for both of them, the U.S. is presently 100% import-dependent, which underscores for us the importance of developing potential new North American sources of supply.”

 

In addition to the mining claims, The Company’s patented lithium-ion battery recycling process, RecycLiCoTM, has the potential to supply additional minerals such as cobalt, lithium, nickel, and manganese. New results from the RecycLiCoTM Pilot Plant are expected shortly.

 

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Andris Kikauka, P. Geo, who is the Qualified Person supervising the fieldwork and reporting geochemical analysis results from the Lonnie rare earth project.
