  • 84 metres of 12.8 per cent manganese (MnO) starting at surface, including 78 metres of 13 per cent MnO, in SF22-66
  • 75.4 metres of 11.2 per cent MnO starting at 8 metres, including 71.4 m of 11.4 per cent MnO, in SF22-65
  • 57.8 metres of 14.6 per cent MnO starting from 4.2 metres, including 31.8 metres of 19 per cent MnO, in SF22-63
  • 56.5 metres of 12.28 per cent MnO starting at 5.5 metres, including 40.8 metres of 15.7 per cent MnO, in SF22-64
  • 26 metres of 13.3 per centMnO starting at 69 metres in hole SF22-59
  • 20 metres of 14.7 per cent MnO starting at 92 metres in hole SF22-60

Manganese X CEO Martin Kepman commented that having just completed 35 infill drill holes measuring 4,690 metres under harsh winter conditions was a challenge but returned strong results from the first 10 holes with the remainder currently at a laboratory for analysis.
