EXTENSIVE EXPLORATION CONDUCTED THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER TO DEVELOP DRILL TARGET ZONES
VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (October 19th, 2021) – Victory Resources Corporation (CSE: VR) (FWB: VR61) (OTC: VRCFF) (“Victory” or the “Company”) is excited to announce that the Company has filed its drill permit application for its Smokey Lithium property in Esmeralda County, Nevada.
Highlights of Smokey Lithium Advancement
Through May and June, Victory’s exploration team conducted mapping and sampling using both a Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) Analyzer* and the collection of claystone samples which were submitted to ALS in Reno. Values up to 630 ppm Li were returned from the surface sampling. The LIBS results were often several times higher than the associated rock sample results, possibly due to the high summer heat and/or the unconsolidated nature of the samples, therefore these results could only be used qualitatively.
Victory’s exploration team continued to conduct exploration activities through July in order to better understand the geology and confirm a strategy for drilling. Surficial sediment sampling was conducted in the southwest and central zones of the property and taken from animal burrows. In addition, seven sites for deeper sampling were chosen based on their elevated surficial lithium values. Holes were dug and samples were taken from > 1 m deep in an attempt to find claystone beneath the generally unconsolidated surficial sediment.
As a result of the extensive exploration work and analysis conducted to date, the Company’s exploration team has identified drill targets that will determine whether a relationship exists to the high Li zone on the adjacent Jindalee property.
Victory’s Smokey Lithium project is a clay lithium property that lies approximately 20 miles north of Clayton Valley, and 20 miles west of American Lithium’s flagship lithium project. Smokey Lithium is located 25 km northwest of Cypress’ Clayton Valley Lithium Project and 35 km southwest of American Lithium Corporation's Tonopah Lithium Claims Property in southwest Nevada. Esmeralda County Nevada is a prolific region for lithium clay deposits, (Noram, Cypress, American Lithium, Spearmint, Enertopia, and Jindalee).
The Smokey Lithium property is located 35 km west of Tonopah, Nevada within the Walker Lane trans tensional corridor on the western margin of the Basin and Range province. The property's geology consists of Miocene - Pliocene tuff deposits, claystones, and siliciclastic beds (Esmeralda Formation) with overlying younger alluvium deposits and desert pavement formation. The claystone, which can carry high lithium concentrations, is observed as highly weathered light grey to tan mounds of unconsolidated clay from 0.10 - 1.50 meters thick. The flat lying nature of the claystones, together with the frequent occurrence of transported cover requires drilling to fully validate and assess Smokey Lithium’s the potential as indicated by surface sampling.
Scientific and technical information contained in this press release was reviewed and approved by Mr. Helgi Sigurgeirson, Victory Geologist, and a "qualified person" under NI 43-101.
* Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a rapid chemical analysis tool that is used to detect and characterize materials. Focusing a powerful laser pulse onto the surface of solid, liquid or even gaseous matter is analyzed to determine the elemental composition of the sample.
