VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 2, 2016) - Vendome Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:VDR)(FRANKFURT:9VR) ("Vendome" or "the Company") is pleased to announce assay results from July-August 2016 geological, geochemical and geophysical work completed at its 100% owned Clinton Manganese Property located near Clinton, British Columbia. Combined with a ground magnetometer geophysical survey, a total of 10 rock samples and 80 soil samples were collected from three claims (MN2, MN3, and MN4). The results not only confirmed the presence of anomalous values of manganese in rock and soil samples but also helped in generating targets for further exploration work on the property.

Highlights of the sampling program are:

  • Manganese (Mn) values of eight rock samples from MN4 claim are in the range of 0.69% to 28% with an average of 10.93% Mn.
  • Two rock samples from MN2 claim showed 1130 ppm (parts per million) and 1150 ppm manganese respectively.
  • Soil samples assayed using mobile metal ions (MMI) technique indicated zones of anomalous manganese values in various areas.
  • Some of the soil manganese anomalies are coincidental with higher magnetic values.
  • Manganese bearing mineralization is hosted in silicified, hematitic red phyllites that have interbedded ferruginous chert.

The exploration work was carried out during July-August 2016 and was contracted to Andris Kakuka a professional geologist registered with Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (APEGBC). Details of rock samples are provided in the table at the end of this press release and the exploration maps can be viewed at the Company's website.

All the samples were shipped to SGS Canada Laboratories in Burnaby, British Columbia. The rock samples were assayed using GE_ICP 40B - Multi-Acid (4 Acid) digestion / ICP-AES Package. The soil samples were analyzed using SGS Laboratories proprietary MMI-M5 analytical procedure. In this technique, target elements are extracted using weak solutions of organic and inorganic compounds and analyzed through ICP-MS Dynamic Reaction Cell™ (DRC II™).
