Mr. James Nelson reports
Spearmint Resources Inc. has received the results of the drill program on the 185-acre Goose gold project in Newfoundland. Four diamond drill holes were located and drilled for a total 677 metres of drilling completed. The drill results did not provide evidence of economical gold grades. Therefore, the company has decided not to pursue this project as management has determined all of the primary targets were tested. Moving forward, the company will continue to focus on its flagship McGee lithium project in Nevada, as well as its Green Clay lithium project, both located in Clayton Valley.
On June 17, 2022, the company announced that it has received the updated technical report and mineral resource estimate for the 100-per-cent-owned McGee lithium clay deposit in Clayton Valley, Nevada. The technical report included an updated mineral resource estimate of 1,369,000 indicated tonnes and 723,000 inferred tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) for a total of 2,092,000 tonnes of LCE, more than doubling the maiden resource estimate announced on June 11, 2021. The technical report and mineral resource estimate was prepared by Derek Loveday, PGeo, and Mariea Kartick, PGeo, of Stantec Consulting Services Ltd., in conformity with CIM (Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum) estimation of mineral resource and mineral reserves best practices guidelines, and were reported in accordance with the Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 43-101.
Frank Bain, PGeo, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical disclosure contained within this news release.
