Metal Energy receives drill permit for Manibridge project

May 16, 2022 | By Monica Ferguson

Metal Energy has received a three-year work permit from the province of Manitoba allowing for 100,000 metres of diamond drilling on the nickel and copper Manibridge Project 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 three years,” said James Sykes, CEO, Metal Energy. “We are optimistic that there are more high-grade nickel and copper greenfield discoveries to be made on the project.”

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 program is anticipated to begin in early June.
