Artillery Peak Initial Plant Layout
Tetra Tech, Inc. provided American Manganese Inc. with a preliminary plant fly-through video. It clearly gives an understanding of the scale and infrastructure required to produce high-purity manganese products.
American Manganese Inc.’s expanding range of multi mineral resources are focused on building a metal portfolio attractive to the Steel Industry. Manganese is a commodity in demand, with the price per ton having seen a rise from $1,225 to over $4,000 since 2006 year-end. American Manganese Inc. is poised to capitalize on the potential of this market with the acquisition in June 2007 of the Artillery Peak Manganese Properties in Arizona.
Properties in British Columbia includes the Rocher Deboule property, with four historical operations and several additional exploration targets. A vital component of the property is the IOCG target (Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold), a mineralization type made famous by the mammoth Olympic Dam deposit in Australia (with resources of nearly 4 billion tonnes) and Candelaria mine in Chile (300-500 million pounds of copper per year).
