Manning Ventures Updates Phase One Exploration at the Copper Hill Project, Nevada, USA

Manning Ventures Inc.

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – April 2, 2024 – Manning Ventures Inc. (the “Company” or “Manning“) (CSE:MANN); (Frankfurt:1H5); (OTC:MANVF) is pleased to announce that Phase One exploration is underway at its Copper Hill Project, located within the Walker Lane Trend, Nevada, USA.

Geological personnel are on site and conducting phase one work of the staged exploration program at the Copper Hill Project, within the Walker Land Trend, Nevada, USA. The first phase of target generating work consists of detailed geologic mapping, soil geochemistry, and a property-wide gravity survey. These programs will be integrated to develop a comprehensive picture of the project. The results will be combined with all available historic data to outline target areas that can be tested with core and reverse circulation drilling.

Geologic mapping will add details to the property-wide geologic map completed in the early 2000’s. Copper Hill is centered on a Jurassic Age quartz monzonite porphyry that intrudes the surrounding Triassic Age Luning Limestone, which was then cut by a variety of intrusive dikes. Zones of porphyry-related copper and gold-bearing skarn mineralization occur at the intrusive-limestone contacts and along fault zones in the intrusive.

Detailed mapping will focus on defining:

  • The extent and location of the skarn mineralization.

  • Delineating skarn mineralization zoning details, around the historic mining and other areas of the project with anomalous copper and gold in the rock geochemistry.

  • Delineating porphyry-copper alteration zoning that may provide a vector to a hidden porphyry copper type target.

A soil geochemistry program to collect approximately 220 soils is laid out to sample rock contact/skarn zones, fault zones interpreted from a ground magnetic survey, and areas covered by shallow colluvial gravel. Sites are spaced every 61 meters (200 feet) on north-south lines spaced 91 meters (300 feet) apart. Samples are laid out to outline and extend the areas of high-grade and anomalous copper, gold, and molybdenum mineralization sampled in the historic rock chip samples. The samples will be analyzed using a 4-acid digestion method which will provide analyses for economic minerals plus trace elements that are known to be associated with porphyry-related skarn mineralization (silver, zinc, bismuth, and tin).

The gravity geophysical program will aid in determining the extent of the intrusive and limestone rocks. Sample locations are laid out to provide enough points to show the density contrasts between the different lithologies. This will provide data to help delineate the various rock types and define fault zone orientations at depth, below the surface.

About the Copper Hill Project

Copper Hill hosts copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization in both porphyry and skarn styled deposits in Mineral County, Nevada. The property consists of 66 mineral claims covering an area of 2.3 miles. The property is located 22 miles north of Hawthorne, Nevada and is accessible using well-maintained County Roads.

The Project is centered on a Jurassic Age quartz monzonite porphyry intruding Triassic age Luning Limestone. The claims cover 2.3 sq miles and are 33 miles east of the Yerington Copper District which hosts the Yerington Copper Mine (Anaconda 1952-1978), Ann Mason Deposit, Bear Deposit, MacArthur Deposit, and the Pumpkin Hollow Mine.

Historically at Copper Hill, reported high-grade copper was mined from underground shafts from skarn and porphyry-copper styled mineralization at the Copper Mountain Mine. Between 1914 to 1926 mining from the “Copper Mountain Mine” produced an estimated 1,000,000 pounds of copper from shallow underground workings. Historic reporting from the period of production describes ore zones of contact skarn- type and porphyry-type mineralization with shipping grades ranging from 3.5 to 11.0% copper*.

*Historic Minning information was summarized from an “Unpublished Report on the Carson Sink Area, Nevada by F.C. Schrader, U.S. Geological Survey (Field work 1911-1920) 1947”. Manning Ventures cautions investors that the historic exploration and production information is believed to be accurate but has not been verified by a qualified person.

The Copper Hill mineralizing system forms a topographic high surrounded and partially covered by younger volcanic rocks. Mineralization identified at Copper Hill are bornite, chalcocite, chalcopyrite, chrysocolla, copper-native, covellite, cuprite, gold, malachite, molybdenite, silver, sphalerite (rare), and tetrahedrite.

The Copper Mountain area was explored between 1959 to 1979 by Idaho Minning Corp. and Walker-Martel who conducted ground geophysics, underground mapping, prospecting and reported 6000 feet of Rotary drilling. Since that time ground magnetics were conducted in 2007.

Rock sampling collected at this time returned values from select samples of 7.2% and 12.7% copper and 1.06 g/t gold and 1.19 g/t gold respectively.

The target being sought at Copper Hill is a porphyry styled copper-molybdenum-gold deposit.
