Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Noram Ventures Inc. (TSX-Venture: NRM / Frankfurt: N7R / OTCBB: NRVTF) (“Noram” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary Green Energy Resources has completed the Phase I drilling program on its lithium clay property in Clayton Valley, Nevada. Further to Noram’s news release on (December 5th 2016) Alba Minerals Ltd. (“Alba”) (TSX-V: AA.H AXVEF:US) under the terms of the Letter of Intent (“LOI”) has made todate 70% of the payments for the Phase I drilling program.
The Phase I program consisted of 658.4 meters (2,160 ft.) of core drilling over 46 holes with an average hole depth of 14.3 meters (47 ft.). Drilling was focused on Noram’s South Block claims with 45 holes drilled in the main target area that measures approximately two and a half miles (4.1 km) by one and a half miles (2.4 km) on the Zeus claims and border of the Zeus Extension claims (Photo 1). One additional hole was drilled on the adjacent Hades claims around the historical shaft where lithium values over 1,000 ppm were sampled from the spoil pile (Photo 2).
All drill core has been logged and sampled with a total of 421 samples having been shipped to ALS Labs in Reno, NV for analysis. Analytical results from the drill core samples will be released as soon as available and incorporated into a National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate.
“The drilling program went well overall,” said consulting geologist, Brad Peek. “Good core recovery was achieved in spite of the difficulties involved in drilling through the soft sediments.”
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Bradley Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist, who is a Qualified Person with respect to Noram’s Clayton Valley Lithium Project as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
