November 18, 2020 – Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the “Company”) wishes to announce that based on the initial positive indications of the completed drill holes to date, the Company has decided to extend the drill program by one additional hole. Spearmint has encountered the targeted potential lithium bearing claystone (see figure 1) in each drill hole to date and has already rushed the first three holes in for assaying. The company has received approval from the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) to extend this program.

James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated “We are pleased to once again extend this drill program after management has determined positive initial indications to date.  We are very encouraged to have encountered the targeted claystone in every hole drilled to date and we look forward to adding one more hole to this program. Nevada lithium is garnering a significant focus right now as Noram Ventures Inc. (NRM.v) and American Lithium Corp. (LI.v) are also both underway with drill programs targeting lithium claystone formations. We are very optimistic about the outcome of this drill program.”
