Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) – Noram Ventures Inc. (TSXV:NRM) (OTCBB:NRVTF:US) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary Green Energy Resources (“Green Energy”) has commenced a 55 hole drilling program just east of Albemarle’s lithium brine operation and approximately six miles (10 km) northeast of Silver Peak, Nevada (Figure 1).
As previously announced on December 5th 2016, Noram entered into a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Alba Minerals to option up to a 50% interest in Green Energy and its lithium projects. In keeping with the terms of the LOI, Alba has made the initial option payment of $127,500 and the drilling crew has been mobilized.
The Phase I core drilling program will focus on Noram’s South Block claims with some 50 holes to be 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). And an additional five holes to be 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). The Program, that will include drilling, core logging, splitting, sampling, and assay analysis, is expected to be completed by mid-January 2017.
“We are very pleased to be underway with our first phase of drilling in the Clayton Valley,” said Mark Ireton, CEO and President of Noram. “Our objective is to delineate a portion of the lithium mineralization on the South Block claims and produce an initial, National Instrument 43-101 resource estimate by the end of January 2017.”
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Bradley C. Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist, who is an independent Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101 with respect to Noram’s Clayton Valley Lithium Project.
