Noram Ventures Completes Initial Sampling Program on its Hector Lode Lithium Claims in San Bernadino County, California

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Noram Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture:NRM Frankfurt: N7R OTCBB:NRVTF) (“Noram” or the “Company”) is pleased to report intial sampling results from the 100% owned Hector Lode claim block of its San Bernadino County, CA Lithium Project, which is located adjacent to an existing bentonite/hectoride mine.

“We are very encouraged by the initial sample analysis which indicates that the grades will support economic recovery of battery grade lithium and Noram will now move on to a more comprehensive sampling and  exploration plan,” said Noram’s President, Mark Ireton.

Hector Lode, California:

  • Consist of 116 mineral claims, comprising approximately 2,300 acres in San Bernardino County, California
  • Proven presence of lithium in Hectorite clays;
  • Published reports indicate lithium values greater than 1% Li2O;
  • Material is currently being mined on adjacent ground as bentonite/hectorite clays;
  • Close to infrastructure (power, transportation and labor);
  • Stable political environment;

The initial sampling program consisted of of 9 samples taken from claystone outcrops within the Hector Lode claims. Assay results ranged from 33.6 to 197.5 ppm Li. Assays were conducted with an MS-ICP analysis package by ALS in Reno, Nevada.

Noram’s independent technical consultant, Bradley C. Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist said:

“While the results of the initial sampling are encouraging, lessons learned from our first geological and sampling phase has provided a clear direction for our next sampling phases, we we anticipate will lead to lithium values similar assays reported indicated Li values greater than 1% Li2O in Ames, L. L., Sand, L. B., Jr., and Goldich, S. S., 1958, A Contribution on the Hector, California Bentonite Deposit:  Econ. Geol., Vol. 53, pp. 22 – 37 and Foshag, W. F. and Woodford, A. O., 1936, Benonitic Magnesian Clay-Mineral from California:  Amer. Mineralogist, Vol. 21, pp. 238 – 244.”

Based on the results of the sample analyses, a more extensive sampling and geological mapping program is recommended to understand and expand on these initial results, and define which areas contain the highest lithium values.

Once the geological mapping and sampling phases have been completed, shallow core drilling (60–80 feet or 18 – 24 meters) has been recommended to provide a more in-depth understanding of the geology, lithium grades and thicknesses. Core drilling is recommended contingent upon the results of the surface sample analyses and geological mapping. Drill collar locations and the numbers of holes will be determined by the sampling and geological phases of the project.

The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Bradley C. Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist, who is a Qualified Person with respect to Noram’s  Hector Lode Claim Group Project as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
