GLOBAL BATTERY METALS BEGINS EXPLORATION ACTIVITY ALONG WITH FURTHER EVALUATION OF OTHER STRATEGIC PROJECTS UPON CLOSING THE RECENT OVERSUBSCRIBED PRIVATE PLACEMENT
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Northwest Leinster Project Update:
Global Battery Metals Ltd. (formerly Redzone Resources Ltd.) (the “Company” or “Global Battery Metals”) (TSXV: GBML) announces the next phase of work on the Northwest Leinster Project has now commenced. This work is in addition to the Due Diligence activities as described in the GBM-LRHR Agreement (dated October 23rd, 2018).
- Activities planned include verification of selected regional stream sediment sites, eight lines of soil sampling and focused prospecting.
- Six soil lines intended for the Aghavannagh target, and 1 line each intended for the Scurlocks and Sorrel targets.
- The stream sediment work will improve confidence in the selection of targets that warrant follow-up work.
- We will sample and analyze multiple soil horizons for the best anomaly contrast.
- Detailed prospecting at the Knocknaboley will target favourable lithogeochemistry from the first-pass exploration.
- Planned work at Aghavannagh should provide most of the information required to lay out drill holes and to determine the methodologies and extent of follow-up surveys on other targets.
- A limited geophysical survey may be completed at Aghavannagh depending on soil sampling results.
- The planned work at the Sorel, Scurlock, and Knocknaboley targets will help determine the nature and extent of further pre-drilling activities.
Fortner-Boyd Project Objective Updates:
Drilling to investigate grade and thickness of the mineralization:
- Define grade and thickness of pegmatite dyke on nine sections along strike
- Test depth continuity up to 150ft vertical (on nine sections) and up to 225ft vertical on 3 of the sections
- Gathered mineralized material will be used for preliminary mineralogical and metallurgical testing;
- Test northern and southern extensions of the outcropping main Lucky Mica dyke;
- Drilling sequence will be focussed on investigating economic grades observed from surface grab samples;
- Under Pit area in northern portion of the dyke;
- Under center portion of the dyke;
- Samples from the first three holes will be rush assayed to facilitate adjustments to the drilling campaign;
- Completion of the full program will be pending results from initial holes
- Logging and supervision of the campaign will be under close supervision from Jean-Philippe Paiement, P.Geo. , MSc (GBML Director)
