By September 4, 2020 September 10th, 2020 No Comments

September 4, 2020 – Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the “Company”) wishes to announce that Harrison Land Services (HLS) has been engaged to carry out a drill program on its Clayton Valley Lithium Project. This next phase of drilling will be a multi-hole drill program to test the known claystone hosted lithium mineralization within Spearmint’s McGee lithium project. Spearmint has two lithium projects in Nevada consisting of the McGee property (Clay) and the Elon property (Brine) which cover an aggregate area of 1,160 acres. Previous drilling on the McGee project intersected lithium as high as 1,670 ppm Li (announced April 17, 2018).

           
James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated “We are pleased to have retained Harrison who have many years of knowledge and experience drilling in the Clayton Valley.  Our initial drill program was successful, and we are optimistic that a second series of drill holes could help define our project. This project lies within a known lithium formation which we share with Cypress Development Corp. (CYP.v)  who recently announced (August 11, 2020) a measured resource estimate which was increased to 574.1 million tonnes averaging 1,081 ppm Li or 3.3 million tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) (see map). Lithium and battery metals in general have been enjoying positive market sentiment recently as electric vehicle sales have taken off, therefore we are eagerly looking forward to commencing operations on one of our flagship properties. Including this planned drill program, Spearmint has multiple projects about to commence including properties in Newfoundland and Quebec and we expect September to be a very active month”

Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Spearmint may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties. Mr. Greg Thomson, P.Geo., a director of Spearmint and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical disclosure contained within this news release.

Spearmint is also pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Twila Jensen as an independent Director to the Company. Ms. Jensen is a director of numerous public companies with over 20 years in the capital markets. Spearmint will also grant two million incentive stock options to directors and officers of the company at an exercise price of $0.085 per share. The options are exercisable for a period of one year pursuant to its rolling stock option plan.
