Canadian Manganese Reports Second Quarter 2023 Results

Toronto, August 15, 2023 – Canadian Manganese Company Inc. (“CDMN” or the “Company”) (NEO: CDMN; OTC: CDMNF) reports its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

This news release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s condensed interim consolidated financial statements and associated management’s discussion and analysis for the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, which are available on the Company’s website at or under the Company’s profile at


During the second quarter of 2023 the Company continued its focus of advancing the Woodstock manganese project, which includes the adjacent Plymouth and Hartford deposits, near Woodstock, New Brunswick.
The Company recorded a loss of $454,592 during the second quarter, compared to a loss of $615,316 in the second quarter of 2022. The loss in the second quarter of 2023 included non-cash share based compensation of $24,241, whereas the loss in the second quarter of 2022 included non-cash share based compensation of $187,705 and $177,155 of other income from the reversal of flow-through share premium.

The Company invested $1,200,147 in exploration and evaluation activities during the second quarter of 2023, including the completion of a diamond drilling program on the North Hartford deposit.

At June 30, 2023, the Company held exploration and evaluation assets with a carrying value of $16,763,599, including the Woodstock manganese project in New Brunswick with a carrying value of $9,753,155, and subsidiary Mongoose’s Cobequid IOCG property in Nova Scotia with a carrying value of $7,010,443 (before a 59.5% non-controlling interest).
The Company had a working capital deficit of $2,872,509 at June 30, 2023. The Company is pursuing various financing alternatives to fund its working capital deficit and its continuing operations.

With reference to the proposed financing previously announced on May 16, 2023, the Company continues in negotiations to complete the proposed non-brokered convertible debenture of $5 million. Closing has been delayed by market conditions but is expected to be completed in the third quarter. However, there are no assurances that the Company will be successful in completing such a planned financing. The company has decided to defer the previously announced proposed flow through financing to the usual flow through season towards the end of the year, when market conditions for flow through financings are expected to be more favourable.

If the Company is unable to obtain adequate additional financing or liquidity in the immediate term, the Company will be required to curtail its operations and activities. Failure to continue as a going concern would require that the Company’s assets and liabilities be restated on a liquidation basis, which may differ from the going concern basis.
