Manning controls a 100%  interest in the Dipole lithium project.

The Dipole property is located approximately 50 kilometres along strike from the Kraken discovery and within the Hermitage flexure.

The Hermitage flexure is a regional-scale structural corridor containing volcano-sedimentary rock units which are a favorable host-rocks for spodumene-bearing LCT pegmatites.

The property is host to several positive indicators for lithium mineralization.

More about Dipole

A historical work report from 1979 by Falconbridge Mines, while searching for base and precious metals, described the following:

  • Aplite dikes containing tourmaline and yellow mica.
  • Spod boulders, which may have been descriptions of spodumene
  • coarse-grained megacrystic granite intruding the volcano-sedimentary belt which may reflect LCT-style pegmatites.
  • Sampling found Tungsten, Molybdenum and Tin in boulders returning up to 1.5% WO3 (Tungsten oxide), 100 ppm Molybdenum and 238 ppm Tin.
  • 1984 historical mapping described lepidolite, a lithium-bearing mica, associated with the tourmaline-garnet bearing aplite dikes.

Kraken Lithium

The recent Kraken lithium zone discovery by of Sokoman Minerals Corp. and Benton Resources spurred an early 2022 regional metallogenic study of Southern Newfoundland by Dahrouge Geological Consulting


Their findings suggested the Dipole property is prospective for hosting Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum type pegmatite – and/or Tungsten mineralization
