February 15, 2022 – Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the “Company” or “Spearmint”) is pleased to announce the phase-I drill program has been completed on the Company’s 100-percent owned Perron-East Gold Project in Quebec, located in the direct vicinity of Amex Exploration Inc. (AMXEF – USA, AMX – TSX.V) and Starr Peak Mining Ltd. (STRPF – USA, STE – TSX.V). Laurentia Exploration, the same geological team who’ve conducted significant drill programs for both Amex Exploration Inc. and Starr Peak Mining Ltd., oversaw all aspects of Spearmint’s drill program.
The drilling campaign started in December 2021 and finished in February 2022. A total of 2,100 m of NQ size was drilled and a total of 545 samples were collected during this campaign. The samples will be sent to ALS for assaying with an expected turnaround time of 8-12 weeks. The drill program was aimed to test different targets based on historical data and recently acquired data. The first portion of the drill program targeted a similar geological context then nearest historical showings (Turgeon Lake: up to 18.7 g/t Au over 3.09 m. (GM 54287, April 29th 1996) and; Rollmac: 31,298 tons grading 11.99 g/t Au (historical and non-compliant NI43-101, Northern Miner, July 13, 1992). The other portion of the drill program, was based on soil anomalies, chargeability anomalies coupled with various different structure identified with hi-resolution mag survey. 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.
James Nelson, President of Spearmint Resources stated, “We are very pleased that we have completed this drill program on budget, and we look forward to what the assays will show. Not only are we awaiting these assays, but we are also awaiting assays, sent on a rush basis, from our McGee Lithium Clay Project in Clayton Valley, Nevada, where we recently drilled two of the longest continuous potentially lithium-bearing clay intercepts ever recorded in Clayton Valley. Clearly the coming weeks will be a transformative time for Spearmint.”
Mr. Hugues Guerin Tremblay, P.Geo. (OGQ #1584), an independent Qualified Person as defined by Canadian NI 43-101 standards, has reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release.
