The Company is pleased to report that the application has been submitted to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Mohave County, Arizona for the permitting of 16 widely spaced diamond drill holes entailing approximately 4900 meters (16,000 feet) on their 100% owned Artillary Peak Manganese Project located 28 miles from Wikieup, Arizona.
The work will include geological mapping and baseline studies. The drill program was designed by N. Tribe & Associates Ltd., utilizing existing roads and workings, known showings of manganese and geology within the claim boundaries.
The Company estimates the drill program should commence by mid to late November.
At the present time, there are no exploration drill holes on the manganese beds on the Chapin West Showings. Surface sampling has established the presence of the manganese in economic grades and although Rocher Deboule Minerals Corp. has not generated the engineering parameters for mining this mineral deposit there is little doubt that the volume and grade will be of economic interest. The historical resource for the Artillery Mountain manganese deposits is estimated at 175,000,000 tonnes averaging 3.5 – 4% Mn as reported in Manganese Deposits of Western Arizona 1958 Information Circular #7843 by (L.L. Farmham and L.A. Stewart). Approximately half of the deposits are on the Rocher Deboule Minerals Corp. claims.
**Where historical estimates are referred to, the Company has no classification of the resource or reserve, and the Company has not obtained enough of the original data and has not done the work necessary to verify the classification of a resource or reserve, the Company is not treating the estimates as a NI 43-101 defined resource or reserve verified by a Qualified Person, and the historical estimate should not be relied upon.
