MANNING VENTURES to Begin Exploration Program at the Dipole Lithium Project, Newfoundland & Engages Investor Relations Consultant

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – October 20, 2022 – Manning Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Manning”) (CSE:MANN); (FRA:1H5) is pleased to announce that it is planning an initial sampling and reconnaissance program at its newly acquired Dipole Lithium Project, located in southern Newfoundland, Canada.  

The Company is scheduled to have a team of geologists on the property during the latter half of October to identify and begin sampling pegmatites for Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum type pegmatite- and/or tungsten mineralization.  

Dipole is located approximately 50 kilometers along strike of the Sokoman/Benton Kraken Lithium discovery and within the Hermitage Flexure.   Sokoman Minerals Corp (TSXV: SIC) and Benton Resources (TSXV: BEX), uncovered a large area of lithium mineralization across an apparent strike length of over two kilometers with surface sampling up to 1.93% Li2O and reconnaissance drilling of up to 8.4 meters over 0.95% Li20.  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.

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, 
  • Tungsten, molybdenum, and tin mineralization in boulders that returned up to 1.5% WO3 (with visible scheelite), 100 ppm Mo and 238 ppm Sn.  These elements are commonly associated on a regional-scale with LCT-style pegmatites in other areas, and 
  • Descriptions of “coarse grained megacrystic” granite which intrude the volcano-sedimentary belt, which may reflect LCT-style pegmatites. 

In addition, a historical mapping campaign of O’Brien and Tomlin (1984), also describe lepidolite, a lithium-bearing mica, associated with the tourmaline-garnet bearing aplite dikes.  Lepidolite is a commonly associated mineral at or near spodumene-bearing LCT-style pegmatite(s).
