Redzone trenches 1.52 m of 0.62% Li2O at Fortner Boyd

2018-10-11 14:03 ET - News Release

Mr. Michael Murphy reports

REDZONE COMPLETES TRENCHING PROGRAM ON THE LUCKY MICA AND DOVE DYKES, A DRILL PERMIT HAS BEEN APPROVED, AND PREPARES FOR DRILLING ON ITS 100 PER CENT OWNED FORTNER BOYD LITHIUM PROPERTY IN ARIZONA

Redzone Resources Ltd. has received assay results from its initial trenching program at the Fortner Boyd lithium project located six miles southwest of Wickenburg, Ariz. A total of 246 metres (810 feet) of trenching in 17 trenches were completed using a backhoe. Trenches were dug at both the Lucky Mica and Dove targets. An attempt was made to excavate to unweathered subcrop in each trench, which varies from one metre to 2.7 metres in vertical depth. The subcrop material was not conducive for channel sampling using a rock saw, so chip sampling by rock hammer was carried out on 1.5-metre intervals (five feet) adjusted to the lithological contacts and local ground conditions. A number of the planned trenches had to be modified due the presence of seasonal drainages (washes) and well-established species of vegetation that Redzone Resources was not allowed to disturb under the BLM trenching permit.

Despite the challenging conditions for trenching, some positive results were returned from the program. The trenches confirmed the strike length of 500 metres of the Lucky Mica dike, with widths ranging from three metres to 15 metres at surface exposure. The Dove target was successfully intercepted along a strike length of 120 metres, with widths ranging from two metres to 14 metres. Among the samples taken from the trenches at Lucky Mica, a three-metre (10-foot) section of trench LMT-5 returned 0.37 per cent lithium oxide, and in trench LMT-7, a 1.5-metre (five-foot) section returned 0.55 per cent lithium oxide. Trenching at the Dove occurrence yielded a 1.5-metre (five-foot) section of trench (trench DT-5) grading 0.62 per cent lithium oxide. The other trenches (10 out of 14 trenches) succeeded in exposing the dike, but no significant lithium results were obtained from the chip sampling. The current program confirmed the zoned nature of the lithium mineralization within the dikes, with the highest values currently observed in the eastern margins of the dike. Further investigation by drilling will be more appropriate to characterize the different zonations and the 3-D distribution of lithium mineralization in the dike; since the trenching sampling method failed to properly sample the mineralized material in the dikes. Drilling will ensure that representative samples are taken in the dike and host rocks.

The results presented above, combined with earlier grab samples, show that lithium is present in the dike and can be used to guide shallow follow-up diamond drilling. This cost-effective trenching program will be followed up by an initial diamond drilling program that will test below lithium mineralization in trenches in the Lucky Mica and Dove areas. The drill permit has been approved and the bond has been accepted, and Redzone Resources expects the actual permit to be issued imminently. An initial first phase of drilling, comprising seven drill holes for a total of 520 metres, will be conducted to assess the presence and zonation of the mineralization. Based on the results of this initial phase, an additional seven holes are planned to test for mineralization along the full currently mapped strike of the Lucky Mica dike. The drilling program, once mobilized, is expected to take approximately 30 days. The drilling will be supervised by David Lajack, PGeo, BSc, from Tucson, Ariz., who has over 30 years of experience in lode mineral exploration. He has managed numerous core drilling programs in the Western United States and Alaska for Canadian junior explorers as well as for private U.S. companies. Altar Drilling Inc. has been contracted to conduct the drilling. Altar Drilling is a privately owned American core drilling company based in Tucson, Ariz., with over 10 years of experience in the Western United States and Alaska. Altar Drilling employs an environment-friendly, tracked core rig. The drill is self-propelled and often does not require any road building or pad construction.

Redzone Resources is financed to carry out this drill program.

Quality assurance/quality control standards were submitted with the trench samples and results verify the analytical results. The field duplicates also confirm the precision of the analytical results. All samples were analyzed for 47 elements using trace elements by multiacid (with HF) near-total digestion, ICP-OES/ICP-MS analytical package at Skyline Labs in Phoenix. Due to the nature of the subcrop and the sampling method, the trenching results cannot be used for resource estimation purposes.
