Spearmint Resources Inc. (“SRJ” or the “Company”) (SRJ—TSX.V) (SPMTF—OTCBB) (A2AHL5–FSE) wishes to announce Spearmint has renewed the company’s 40 lithium claims in Nevada. These two claim blocks both border Pure Energy Minerals Limited’s (PE.v) Clayton Valley lithium deposit. One block lies directly inside of Pure’s Claim block and the other is on the east side and their deposit and was worked on earlier this year. The highest sample value obtained was 1,630 parts per million, with an overall average value of 843 parts per million lithium. Twenty-three of the 91 samples achieved values of over 1,000 parts per million. The samples ranged from a low of 285 parts per million to the high of 1,630 parts per million (announced March 13, 2017).
James Nelson states, “Pure Energy is one of a few junior lithium companies that Tesla Inc. (TSLA) has signed a lithium Supply Agreement (Sept 16, 2015) with. Management feels that the two lithium projects have very strategic value as we feel the results already achieved justify further drilling. Management has also been very active to acquire multiple gold, nickel and copper prospects in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia. Management anticipates commencing operations in 2017 on multiple projects and we are very optimistic about the future growth of the company.”
Yesterday Spearmint announced that it has acquired a 100 percent interest in the “EL North” Nickel-Copper Prospect in the world renowned Eskay Creek Mining Camp in the Golden Triangle of British Columbia.

Spearmint has also just recently acquired a 100-per-cent interest in four separate gold prospects located in the Golden Triangle gold district in British Columbia. These new prospects directly border GT Gold Corp’s (GTT.v) Tatogga Lake prospect.
