NRG Metals Inc. (“NRG” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:NGZ) (OTCQB:NRGMF) (Frankfurt:OGPN). The Company is pleased to announce that it has filed an Environmental Impact Study seeking permits to conduct exploration drilling, pumping tests, and evaporative testing at the Hombre Muerto North Project, located in the Province of Salta, Argentina. The study was completed on behalf of the Company by EC&Asociados, an ISO 9001 certified environmental consultancy based in Salta. Once permits have been obtained, the Company plans to drill up to eight diamond core holes to depths ranging from 150 to 200 m. Depending upon the results obtained from the drilling, the depth of the holes may be extended to as much as 400 m. Core holes with positive results will be followed up by larger diameter tricone holes (approximately 12 inch diameter) for pumping tests. While permitting is underway, the company will complete a geophysical survey to existing data.
