VANCOUVER, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Callinex Mines Inc. (TSXV: CNX) (OTCQX: CLLXF) is pleased to announce that it has received final title from the Manitoba Department of Mines for the 17,500 hectares of Mineral Exploration Licenses in Northern Manitoba previously reported as having been applied for. This final government approval brings the land package in the district to a total of 44,300 hectares in area. Callinex is the sole holder of the Mineral Exploration Licenses, and several additional mineral claims. The Company has acquired this land package strategically, for the purpose of discovery-oriented graphite exploration.
As previously reported, the property, called the "Neuron" property, was the subject of a 1,850 line-kilometer VTEM survey conducted by the company this past fall. The survey uncovered several areas of conductivity coincident with magnetic lows, which the company's exploration team has identified as potential targets for graphite mineralization. The Company has received a drill permit and access to the property is being arranged via winter roads. The Company plans to begin an exploration program at the earliest possible date.
