About The Project
Spearmint’s Clayton Valley Lithium Clay Project 43-101 Technical Report includes a maiden resource estimate of 815,000 indicated tonnes and 191,000 inferred tonnes for a total of 1,006,000 tonnes of Lithium Carbonate Equivalent (LCE). Recently, Spearmint has discovered Lithium in all 10 out of 10 drill holes of the phase II drill program on its Clayton Valley Lithium Clay Project in Nevada achieving a 100% success rate, directly bordering Cypress Development Corp. (CYP-TSX.v). During this phase II drill program, Spearmint has discovered its highest drill core lithium values to date of 1,840 ppm Li (see map) & Hole-6 returned the best results achieved to date with an average lithium value of 966 ppm Li over 220 continuous feet, including a high value of 1490 ppm. Results from the final 5 drill holes include: Hole #11 hitting a high of 1490 parts per million lithium (ppm Li) within 235 feet averaging 817 ppm Li, including 110 feet averaging 1020 ppm Li starting at 20 feet from surface. Hole #12 hit a high of 1370 ppm Li within 105 feet averaging 1042 ppm Li, starting at 10 feet from surface. Hole #10 had a high of 1360 ppm Li. Hole #13 hit a high of 1320 ppm Li within 200 feet averaging 845 ppm Li, including 70 feet averaging 1026 ppm Li starting at 5 feet from surface. Hole #14 hit a high of 1730 ppm Li within 225 feet averaging 900 ppm Li, including 55 feet averaging 1046 ppm Li starting at 15 feet from surface.
Spearmint Resources Inc. announced that the first phase of exploration drilling, completed in 2018 on its Clayton Valley Lithium Clay Project, has intersected lithium values as high as 1,670 ppm Li. The three holes drilled into the clay formation all intersected lithium. Hole 1 had a range of 1670-396 ppm Li over 270 feet averaging 835 ppm Li, including 35 feet averaging 1,140 ppm Li. Hole 2 had a range of 1570-250 ppm Li averaging 642 ppm Li over 220 feet including 20 feet of 925 ppm Li. Hole 3 had a range of 1280-429 ppm Li averaging 772 ppm Li over 195 feet including 998 ppm Li over 20 feet.
Spearmint Resources Inc. has two separate claim blocks in Nevada that are projective for lithium known as the Elon (brine) property and the McGee (clay) property which cover an aggregate area of 1,160 acres. These two separate claim blocks border Pure Energy Minerals’ (PE.v) Clayton Valley project and Cypress Development Corp’s (CYP.v) property. Pure Energy is in the only known lithium-bearing brine in North America that is in production and Spearmint is very pleased to be in this area. Historic and recent drill programs in adjacent and nearby properties are suggestive of the potential for the discovery of lithium-bearing brines & clay.
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.
