Tell Exploration Update and YMEP Grant

Manson Creek is pleased to report that it has applied for, qualified and received a Yukon Mineral Exploration Grant (YMEP) to reimburse 2015 qualified field expenditures at the rate of 50%, up to a total of $19,599. Manson, with strategic partner Guatavita Gold Corporation plans a prospecting and ground geophysical program this summer with the objective of identifying massive sulphide mineralization on the Tell project.

2014 drilling demonstrated the presence of a large, previously unrecognized, mineralized exhalative system such as related to other significant Yukon deposits and which supports the potential for both VMS/SEDEX massive sulphide exploration models.

Existing stream sample data to the north west, approximately 1.2 kilometers along strike of the exhalative system outlined by the 2014 drilling program suggests that higher grade massive sulphides than found to date in drilling may be exposed along a steeply dipping creek cut. Four (4) stream samples over a discrete creek section over 1 km indicate potential exposure and erosion of sulphide mineralization, with stream samples showing high amounts of zinc (0.40 to 3%), nickel (441 ppm to >1000 ppm), and highly anomalous cobalt, barium, copper and manganese. The 2015 field season plans to fully map and prospect this area for the source of this strong geochemical anomaly, which geochemical signature is consistent with the target style, while showing many elements not seen in the assay data for the area previously drilled.
