Wildcat Hole Returns 7.39% Manganese over 7.62 meters (25 feet) on Upper Shannon Patented Claims

August 16, 2011

Larry W. Reaugh, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Manganese Inc., (TSX.V: AMY; Pink Sheets: AMYZF; Frankfurt: 2AM) (“American Manganese” or the “Company”) is pleased to report the Company has received results for the following 8 holes from its 2011 Artillery Peak drilling program.  The results for first 73 drill holes have been previously announced.

The company initiated the drilling program on April 20, 2011 and completed on June 17, 2011.  It was performed using reverse circulation drilling techniques as the mineralization is disseminated and uniform.  A total of 10,607 meters (34,800 ft.) was drilled in 84 drill holes.

Mr. Reaugh states that “We have now reported results for all drill holes, and are very pleased with the results.  Of all the holes drilled, only three (No. 61, 55, and 131) contained no mineralization, or mineralization too weak to report.  These holes serve to delineate the manganese bed sub-crop.  Two holes were deferred to the next program at the last minute.  We are closing information gaps and increasing the amount of known mineralization on the patented lands.”
