Labrador Gold Announces Early Exercise of Option to Earn 100% of the Kingsway Property

Labrador Gold Corp.

TORONTO, May 16, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V : LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has exercised its option two years early to earn 100% of the three licenses comprising the Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. The Kingsway project is located in the highly prospective central Newfoundland gold belt.

The Kingsway Property is composed of three licenses 027636M and 027637M which were optioned in March 2020 and 023940M optioned in July 2020. Together these three licenses cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone along which prospecting and drilling over the past two years by LabGold and New Found Gold has resulted in the discovery of numerous near-surface high grade gold occurrences. Given the prolific nature of this fault zone and the continued success of the Company’s exploration on the property, the Board agreed to accelerate the option payments to acquire the 100% interest.

“It is clear to us that the Kingsway Property will need sustained exploration over the long term to fully understand its potential. The success we have had in just a year and half spent working in the field speaks to the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone and the remainder of the property in general,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of Labrador Gold. “Acquiring the 100% interest in the property two years earlier than required shows the confidence we have that there is more to come from Kingsway, and we are excited to continue exploring the entire 12km strike length of the Appleton Fault Zone.”

The Company now owns a 100% undivided interest in license 023940M.
The Company also owns a 100% undivided interest in licenses 027636M and 027637M subject to:
A 1.0% Net Smelter Returns royalty plus $1 per ounce of gold in the measured and indicated mineral resource categories established in a National Instrument 43-101 technical report for the development of the Property.
Expenditure target payments of $750,000 for each $10 million in exploration expenditures up to $30 million.

Upcoming Webinar

Labrador Gold is also pleased to announce that President and CEO, Roger Moss, will be providing the latest update from the Kingsway project in a live webinar taking place on Monday, May 16th at 1:00PM PT/ 4:00PM ET. To register for the event please click the link below.

About Labrador Gold
Labrador Gold is a Canadian based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects in Eastern Canada.

Labrador Gold owns a 100% undivided interest in the Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 100,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging results including the discovery of near surface gold mineralization at three of three targets drilled to date. The Company has approximately $25 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretches over 60 km. The belt is typical of greenstone belts around the world but has been underexplored by comparison. Work to date by Labrador Gold show gold anomalies in rocks, soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 km along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 40km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 156,740,526 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Eloro Resources Files Updated 43-101 Technical Report on Iska Iska Project

Eloro Resources Ltd.
Eloro Resources Ltd.

Eloro Resources Also Announces Filing of Final Base Shelf Prospectus

TORONTO, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Eloro Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Eloro”) (TSX-V: ELO; OTCQX: ELRRF; FSE: P2QM) is pleased to announce that it has filed on SEDAR an updated technical report (“Technical Report”) on the Company’s Iska Iska silver-tin polymetallic project, prepared by Micon International Limited (“Micon”) and in accordance with National Instrument 43-101.

Eloro also announces that it has filed a final short form base shelf prospectus with the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Canada except Québec.

Updated NI 43-101 Technical Report

The Technical Report supports the interpretation of the drilling and other exploration results thus far, and details Eloro’s next exploration phase leading to the estimation of mineral resources. Micon’s conclusions in the Technical Report include the following:https://embed.fireplace.yahoo.com/embed?ctrl=Monalixa&m_id=monalixa&m_mode=document&site=sports&os=android&pageContext=%257B%2522ctopid%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522hashtag%2522%253A%25221542500%253B1577000%2522%252C%2522wiki_topics%2522%253A%2522Technical_report%253BNational_Instrument_43-101%253BCanadian_Securities_Administrators%253BHelorus%253BInternational_Sport_Karate_Association%253BCompany%2522%252C%2522lmsid%2522%253A%2522a0770000002m0AbAAI%2522%252C%2522revsp%2522%253A%2522globenewswire.com%2522%252C%2522lpstaid%2522%253A%2522bfb4f0a9-3ea8-34cb-a445-59cd20f5f3d0%2522%252C%2522pageContentType%2522%253A%2522story%2522%257D

  • The potential of the Iska Iska Project is unquestionable in terms of its regional geological setting. It is in the midst of a proven metallogenic district with well-established world-class mines such as Cerro Rico de Potosi, Chorolque, and San Vicente. The fact that nearby mines of the Bolivian polymetallic type are operating profitably, is positive for the current drill definition and metallurgical investigations at Iska Iska.
  • Proximity of the deposit to surface offers an opportunity/potential for both open pit and underground exploitation, especially in the Santa Barbara – Huayra Kasa area.
  • Geological mapping, geophysical surveys, and diamond drilling have revealed a potentially large deposit of significance but yet to be converted into a resource. So far, the mineralization/deposit is isotropic, lacking any preferred alignment; this is corroborated by variography and downhole IP surveys.
  • All holes drilled across the project to date display intervals of alteration and significant mineralization, and the limits of the system have not yet been delineated. The deposit is wide open for expansion in all directions.
  • The “epicentre” of mineralization appears to be in the Santa Barbara adit area, where the highest grades and widest widths have been encountered to date. Therefore, resource development and expansion should radiate outwards from here.

In making recommendations in the Technical Report, Micon states: Eloro’s nearer term objective is a maiden mineral resource estimate within this large target area. This work is advancing well with the initial mineral resource targeted to be completed in Q3 2022. Exploration drilling is also planned on other major targets in the Iska Iska Caldera Complex including the Porco and Mina 2 areas. Accordingly, Micon recommends a two-pronged approach for Eloro to achieve its objectives, namely an initial phase of geophysics and additional delineation drilling followed by a second phase of resource expansion and preliminary economic assessment.

Final Base Shelf Prospectus

The base shelf prospectus filed by Eloro will allow Eloro to qualify the distribution by way of prospectus of up to C$100 million, in aggregate, of common shares, warrants and units, or any combination thereof, from time to time during the 25-month period during which the base shelf prospectus is effective. The specific terms of any future offering will be established in a prospectus supplement to the base shelf prospectus, which supplement will be filed with the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities in connection with any such offering.

Eloro has filed the base shelf prospectus to provide the Company with greater financial flexibility going forward but has not entered into any agreements or arrangements to authorize or offer any securities of the Company at this time.

A copy of the final short form base shelf prospectus is available under Eloro’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of, any securities of the Company in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Millrock Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MRO, OTCQB: MLRKF) (“Millrock” or the “Company”) reports on advancements at the 64North gold exploration project, including an imminent drilling program. The project is the subject of an earn-in agreement whereby Resolution Minerals Limited (ASX: RML) (“Resolution”) is earning a joint venture interest from Millrock.

Drilling Program: The Resolution–Millrock technical team has developed a strong drill target area at the Tourmaline Ridge prospect, located on the West Pogo block. The target area was developed through analysis of all historic data, in addition to work that has been funded by Resolution over the past thirty months. Resolution plans to execute a drilling program of approximately 2,200 meters in five boreholes that will commence in late June 2022.

Earned Interest: Resolution has earned a 42% interest in the project by making cash payments (US$150,000), share payments (30,000,000 shares), and expending at least US$7.0 million on exploration (US$7.87 million spent as at January 31, 2022). Additionally, Resolution has elected to continue sole-funding exploration to earn a 51% interest by making further expenditures in 2022 and making further share and cash payments to Millrock.

Millrock President & CEO Gregory Beischer commented: “There is an abundance of geologic evidence pointing to a possible gold deposit at Tourmaline Ridge. We wish Resolution the best of luck as they move the project forward, and we are hopeful for a new gold discovery.”

A large soil geochemical anomaly measuring 1,800 by 750 meters occurs on the Tourmaline Ridge prospect. Recently Resolution reported that it had received rock sample assay results from trenches excavated at Tourmaline Ridge in fall of 2021. Numerous narrow, gold-bearing veins were detected. These steep-dipping veins are interpreted to be “antithetic veins”, which commonly occur in the hanging wall above gold ore bodies at the nearby Pogo mine. Prior historical drilling intersected these veins along with characteristic rock alteration and pathfinder minerals. From geophysical surveys, a moderately northwest dipping structure is interpreted to lie beneath the soil anomaly and historic drill holes. Resolution and Millrock interpret this structure to be the “Pogo Trend”, which appears to be traced from the Goodpaster deposit on the adjacent Pogo Mine property operated by Northern Star Mines Ltd. (“Northern Star”).

Northern Star recently announced a maiden inferred resource estimate of 1.1 million ounces of gold in 3.2 million tonnes of rock, averaging 10.3 grams per ton gold for the Goodpaster deposit.

As of March 31, Pogo is reported by Northern Star to host 6.59 million metric tonnes of proven and probable reserves, averaging 8.5 grams per metric tonne (1.8 million ounces) gold. (Northern Star ANNUAL MINERAL RESOURCE AND ORE RESERVE STATEMENT, May 5, 2022). More than 4 million ounces of gold has been mined at Pogo.

Note: Millrock has not independently verified the information reported by Northern Star. Also, Millrock cannot assure that the structures that host gold ore bodies at Pogo continue onto ground controlled by Millrock and that gold deposits of similar magnitude and concentration will be discovered.

“Although we are in the early days of exploring Eliza, these high-grade samples provide further evidence that the Project, including the newly acquired California Patent, is an exciting and high potential area,” stated President & CEO Morgan Lekstrom. “Our exploration work continues to demonstrate the existence of high-grade silver mineralization in a historic mining district that has seen limited modern exploration work. An especially interesting aspect of the results from this recent round of sampling is the presence of high-grade copper, lead and zinc, in addition to the silver. This particular suite of metals is characteristic of vein and replacement-style mineral deposits commonly found peripheral to porphyry copper deposits. Given the recent sampling results, the potential for porphyry-related mineralization will be assessed by our geologists as we further investigate the known silver prospects and potential.”

Table 1: Notable Results from the Spring Sampling Program at Eliza

https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/4cc37fae-9ae8-44e6-869b-8a48ef2bb77d

Ongoing field work at Eliza includes soil sampling and geological mapping. A program of geophysical surveying is planned to commence in Q2-Q3, 2022. Results of the geochemical and geophysical surveys will be used to define priority drill targets ahead of an initial phase of drilling at the Project.

Technical Observations at Eliza

The geological setting at Eliza is similar to that of other mines in the area. District-scale folding of Middle Paleozoic limestone and shale formations appears to have formed open-space fault and fracture zones which channeled mineralizing fluids through chemically receptive host rocks, specifically the Devonian Guillmette and Joana Limestone formations.

The spring sampling program done at and around the historic mines found on the Eliza Project has shown that the replacement-style mineralized zones in limestone exist along axial planar faults and fracture zones and commonly weather into resistant ridges.

The assay results from the sampling program confirm observations made in the field: limestone and dolomite micro-breccia replacement zones show strong to very strong enrichments in Ag, arsenic (“As”), barium (“Ba”), Cu, manganese (“Mn”), Pb and Zn. Notable results are shown in Table 1 and Figure 1.

Qualified Person

Technical aspects of this press release have been reviewed and approved by Philip Mulholland, a Certified Professional Geologist (CPG) with the American Institute of Professional Geologists, a contractor of the Company and the designated Qualified Person (QP) under National Instrument 43-101.

Quality Assurance, Quality Control Sample Security

The following measures were taken to ensure sample security: samples were submitted to AAS American Analytical Services; only authorized personnel attended the samples; samples were collected and recorded by Silver Hammer geologists and then shipped to the AAS lab in Osburn, Idaho.

Analysis Suite

All samples were analyzed by AAS using conventional assay methods involving fire assaying of 50-gram charges of pulverized sample material for gold and silver, with Fire Assay ICP Finish (FA-ICP); AND ICP-35 Element Scan (M-ICP-35).

Audits or reviews

Internal review of sampling techniques, data, and results by the Company’s geologist’s and management was routinely done through the course of the project.

Blanks and Duplicates

For quality assurance/quality control purposes, the batches of samples sent to AAS for assaying and ICP analyses were regularly infused with ‘duplicate’, and ‘blank’ samples. The ‘duplicates’ were created during sample preparation at AAS. The laboratory also provided analytical results for their own reference samples for further QA/QC check.

Labrador Gold Intersects 54.17 G/T Au Over 0.95m at the Big Vein Target

TORONTO, May 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Labrador Gold Corp. (TSX.V:LAB | OTCQX:NKOSF | FNR: 2N6) (“LabGold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the continued extension of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest with an intersection of 54.17 g/t Au over 0.95m as well as the intersection of near surface gold mineralization from initial diamond drilling of the Pristine target at its 100% controlled Kingsway project near Gander, Newfoundland. These holes were drilled as part of the Company’s ongoing 100,000 metre drill program at Kingsway.

At Big Vein, the intercept of 54.17g/t Au over 0.95m in hole K-22-122 contains visible gold and is the furthest intersection of the Big Vein Zone to the southwest drilled to date. This extends the strike length of the zone to 320m and it remains open in this direction. Hole K-22-116 targeted the HTC zone and intersected 14.67 g/t over a 1m interval that also contained visible gold.

At the Pristine target the first six holes all intersected significant near surface gold mineralization, including hole K-21-109 that assayed 3.55 g/t Au over 2.33m from 17.15m that contained visible gold and hole K-21-100 that intersected 3.89 g/t Au over 3m from 53m downhole.

The initial assays from the Pristine target, located approximately 800m northeast of Big Vein along the Appleton Fault Zone, are very similar to the first reported holes from Big Vein that assayed 1.11 g/t Au over 5.50m, 5.0 g/t Au over 0.9m and 2.26 g/t Au over 7.0m in Hole K-21-01 and 1.72 g/t Au over 3.0min Hole K-21-02 (see news release dated May 10, 2021).

The stratigraphy encountered is also very similar to Big Vein, with the mineralized Doyle Zone defined by a network of shear veining that is associated with a highly fractured sandstone in fault contact with a deformed black graphitic shale.

“We are very pleased with the initial results from the Pristine target which proves our interpretation of the existence of a gold occurrence not too far up ice from the pristine gold grains found in till. Pristine is the third of three targets tested to date to show significant near surface gold assays, a result of our systematic exploration strategy at Kingsway and the prospectivity of the Appleton Fault Zone,” said Roger Moss, President and CEO of the LabGold. “We have named the mineralized zone at Pristine the Doyle Zone after our friend and strong supporter James Doyle, who passed away suddenly, and much too early, in late 2020. James helped and advised us in every financing since the start of Labrador Gold in 2017, and gave us support in the market, often when no-one else was interested. James would have loved witnessing all the exploration activity in central Newfoundland over the last two years and would have been working the telephones daily. We will endeavour to ensure that the Doyle Zone lives up to the big personality of its namesake.”

Pristine Target and Appleton Fault Zone

The visible gold found in hole K-21-109 drilled into the Doyle Zone is the third occurrence of visible gold found, after Big Vein and Golden Glove, along the Appleton Fault Zone. The Doyle Zone is the furthest northeast, approximately 4.5km from Golden Glove which lies close to the southern property boundary. The Doyle Zone lies to the east of a fault with a major damage zone approximately 30m wide which may represent the expression of the Appleton Fault Zone in this area. Further work is necessary to determine if this is, in fact, the the case or if it is a major splay of the Appleton Fault Zone. In either case it is a significant structure associated with gold mineralization in the Doyle Zone.

The most detailed exploration along the Appleton Fault Zone to date has been over an approximately 2km section from just southwest of Big Vein to the Pristine target, leaving the remaining 10km length of the fault zone relatively underexplored. This will be a major focus of LabGold’s upcoming field program.

About Labrador Gold
Labrador Gold is a Canadian based mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and exploration of prospective gold projects in Eastern Canada.

In early 2020, Labrador Gold acquired the option to earn a 100% interest in the Kingsway project in the Gander area of Newfoundland. The three licenses comprising the Kingsway project cover approximately 12km of the Appleton Fault Zone which is associated with gold occurrences in the region, including those of New Found Gold immediately to the south of Kingsway. Infrastructure in the area is excellent located just 18km from the town of Gander with road access to the project, nearby electricity and abundant local water. LabGold is drilling a projected 50,000 metres targeting high-grade epizonal gold mineralization along the Appleton Fault Zone following encouraging early results. The Company has approximately $28 million in working capital and is well funded to carry out the planned program.

The Hopedale property covers much of the Florence Lake greenstone belts that stretches over 60 km. The belt is typical of greenstone belts around the world but has been underexplored by comparison. Work to date by Labrador Gold show gold anomalies in rocks, soils and lake sediments over a 3 kilometre section of the northern portion of the Florence Lake greenstone belt in the vicinity of the known Thurber Dog gold showing where grab samples assayed up to 7.8g/t gold. In addition, anomalous gold in soil and lake sediment samples occur over approximately 40 km along the southern section of the greenstone belt (see news release dated January 25 th 2018 for more details). Labrador Gold now controls approximately 40km strike length of the Florence Lake Greenstone Belt.

The Company has 156,439,526 common shares issued and outstanding and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol LAB.

Mr. Rauno Perttu, Co-Founder and Chairman of Provenance stated, “The Eldorado and White Rock Projects represent tremendous opportunities to add significant value in the near-term and we are excited to continue working towards maiden resources on both projects.”

Eldorado Project Summary

Provenance signed a binding option to purchase the Eldorado property located in eastern Oregon from Nevada Select Royalty Inc. and has completed the first year’s payment as announced on December 13, 2021. Nevada Select is an arm’s-length company that is a subsidiary of Gold Royalty Corp., a leading growth and Americas-focused precious metals royalty company.

The Eldorado Property was first explored in 1980 by Westley Mines. Exploration continued intermittently up until 1998 by Degerstrom, Ican Minerals, Billiton Minerals and, lastly, North Mining Ltd. There has been no work done on the property since 1998. Previous work on the property included 236 reverse circulation holes and six core holes for a total of 21,866.9 meters of drilling, including trenching, soil sampling, metallurgy, geophysics, and modelling.

A resource study was conducted by Pincock, Allen and Holt on behalf of Billiton in 1990 and at the time estimated the Eldorado property contained 38,416,000 tons averaging 0.68 g/t for 764,000 ounces of gold (at a 0.292 g/t cutoff grade) and encompassed a limited portion of the known mineralization. This estimate is considered to be historical in nature, should not be relied upon, and is provided only for historical context on development of the property. A Qualified Person has not completed sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource, and it predates current CIM (Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum) categories. Provenance is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource or reserve. Significant data compilation, redrilling, resampling and data verification will be required by a qualified person before the historical estimate can be classified as a current resource.

Other work that is underway includes an analysis of the current drill hole data base in preparation for a maiden model of the gold mineralization on the Eldorado gold property. This work includes review and verification of the 242 historic holes drilled on the property. Provenance plans to commence the first drilling program at Eldorado during mid to late summer, subject to drill rig availability and permitting.

White Rock Project Summary

The White Rock Property consists of 258 lode mining claims covering a combined area of approximately 5,160 acres, located approximately 105 kilometers northeast of Wells, Elko County, Nevada. On June 12, 2020, Provenance, through its subsidiary Provenance Gold USA, entered into a four-year option agreement with Nevada Select Royalty Inc., an arm’s-length company that is a subsidiary of Gold Royalty Corp., a leading growth and America’s-focused precious metals royalty company which grants Provenance Gold USA the sole and exclusive right to purchase 100% of Gold Royalty’s right, title and interest to the Property.

The White Rock Property lies at the northern end of the basin and range geological province of the western United States. The White Rock Property hosts gold mineralization and alteration patterns with similarities to low sulphidation epithermal deposits. Drilling by Provenance commenced in July 2021 and defined the stratigraphic and structural controls and grades within the extensive central area of sediment-hosted gold mineralization. The target mineralization extends across a 3.2 km by 1.6 km area centered on a complex dome structure that is believed to have formed on the upper plate of a system of thrust faults. In addition, drilling was intended to confirm results from historical drillholes that intersected numerous thick intervals of potentially open-pit grade gold mineralization, while confirming Provenance’s new understanding of the structural and stratigraphic controls of the gold mineralization.

The drillhole assay results confirmed similar results achieved by past operators and confirmed the location of a newly recognized open-ended gold mineralization feeder structure that extends across the core mineralized area of 3.2 km in length and 1.3 km in width (WR-45) while bottoming out in mineralization. In addition to the newly identified plumbing structure, recent step-out drilling continued to expand the gold mineralization in several directions from drillhole WR-23, which returned an interval of 80 meters (265 feet) of gold mineralization. Large step-out drilling tested new areas including the Rhyolite Graben to the northwest, the Nose area to the south and the newly identified plumbing structure. The Rhyolite Graben, located to the northwest and west of hole WR-23 was tested with two holes. Both intercepted gold mineralization with hole WR-32 assaying 65.5 meters (215 feet) of 0.305 g/t gold which included 20 meters (65 feet) of 0.411 g/t gold. The hole bottomed out in mineralization at 115.8 meters (380 feet) and was lost. The importance of this intercept suggests that the host rocks in the graben will host gold mineralization and now become a substantial new target.

Other work that is underway includes an analysis of the current drill hole database in preparation for a maiden model of the gold mineralization on the White Rock gold property. This work includes review and verification of the 65 historic holes drilled on the property in addition to the Company’s recent drilling on the project. As with Eldorado, it also includes certification of all drill assays. Provenance plans the next stage drilling program at White Rock during the late summer/fall, depending on drill rig availability.

Noram Receives Results for CVZ-72 with the Longest and Highest-Grade Intercept from all of the Zeus Drilling to Date

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 5, 2022 / Sandy MacDougall, CEO of Noram Lithium Corp. (“Noram” or the “Company“) (TSXV:NRM | OTCQB:NRVTF | Frankfurt:N7R) is pleased to announce the successful completion of CVZ-72 (PH-06) and release of the final assay results. The Company completed core hole CVZ-72 at a depth of 428 feet (130.5 m). Sampling for assay began at 60 ft (18.3 m) and continued to the bottom of the hole, an interval thickness of 368 ft (112.2 m) was intersected, which was the entire assayed portion of the hole. The hole ended in mineralization and the weighted average lithium values present were as follows:

Figure 1. Comparative stratigraphy and assay results for drill holes CVZ-72 as compared to CVZ-53 and CVZ-68, which were drilled as part of the Phases IV and V programs. CVZ-53 and CVZ-68 both had long intercepts of high grade lithium mineralization. The histogram on the sides of the holes are the composited lithium grades in ppm Li. The cross section has a 4X vertical exaggeration.

“CVZ-72 was the second hole completed in Noram’s 12-hole Phase VI drilling program. These assays represent the longest and highest-grade interval of lithium mineralization intersected to date on the Zeus property. This hole also clearly reaffirms the consistently high lithium grades across this blanket-like mineral deposit. If the program continues to produce results such as these, we could reasonably expect our PFS to outshine our PEA. Ending in mineralization at depths such as these suggests even greater potential for the size and extent of this resource” comments Brad Peek, VP of Exploration and geologist on all six phases of Noram’s Clayton Valley exploration drilling.
