ACME Lithium Starts Exploration Program at Bailey Lake Pegmatite Discovery Area in Saskatchewan Canada

ACME Lithium Starts Exploration Program at Bailey Lake Pegmatite Discovery Area in Saskatchewan Canada

ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") is pleased to announce that it has commenced a summer exploration program at its Bailey Lake pegmatite discovery area in northeastern Saskatchewan.

Starting August 21st, 2023, ACME will be conducting a 3-in-1 Airborne Geophysical Survey on the Bailey Lake Property which will include Helicopter-borne Tri-axial Gradiometer Magnetics, Radiometrics, and LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) to identify regional structural trends and localized controls of pegmatite bodies and other key information to aid in future drill targeting.

Immediately following the geophysical survey, a field program will be conducted to follow up on any anomalous signatures detected from the geophysical survey, as well as to conduct follow-up prospecting from the work completed on the property in 2017. This program will consist of prospecting, geochemical sampling (soils, boulder, outcrop, and channel samples), and structural measurements on the Bailey Lake property. This exploration program will focus on delineating and identifying potential sources for the 2017 boulder sampling completed by Paul Ramaekers and David Turner which returned samples with elevated values of lithium and critical mineral elements. The goal of these programs is to locate and analyze the pegmatites on the property and delineate which ones are hosting spodumene and lepidolite for upcoming drill programs.

ACME Lithium has acquired the services of Axiom Exploration Group LTD. (Axiom) to complete the upcoming Geophysical Surveys and Field Exploration programs at Bailey Lake Project. Axiom is an employee owned, Saskatchewan based consulting firm providing a diverse set of technical services within, and integrated across multiple divisions: Exploration, Geophysics & Geomatics, Environment & Energy Services. Axiom has a team of diverse geoscientists with multi-jurisdictional experience, managing numerous on-going lithium projects across Canada. Staff are specialized in the field of rare-element pegmatite exploration and Axiom's geoscientists are equipped with the latest industry knowledge and tools to provide reliable and accurate data to aid in the initial design, operation, and management of grass-roots exploration programs to the optimization of advanced projects.

ACME announced on December 12th, 2022, that it had entered into two agreements, an option ("Option") to purchase a 100% interest in a core block of 13 contiguous mineral claims encompassing 25,900 hectares (or 100 square miles) and a purchase ("Purchase") of five additional contiguous claims comprised of 15,794 hectares (61 square miles). Together, the Project Claims comprise 41,694 hectares (or 161 square miles).

Highlights:

  • The large claim block contains multiple indications of spodumene-bearing pegmatites with potentially economic lithium grades.
  • Spodumene-bearing pegmatites with evolved mineralogy are found on surface in outcrop and boulder trains.
  • Historical reported sampling by Gem Oil includes up to 3950 ppm Li in the Bailey Lake region.
  • Historical reported sampling by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey includes results up to 3470 ppm Li at Misaw Lake region to the east of Bailey Lake.
  • Till sampling in the region by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey reported numerous sites with elevated lithium and lithium pegmatite associated elements.
  • The geological setting, granitic suite characteristics, evolved pegmatite characteristics, occurrence of float with potentially economic lithium grades, and absence of extensive historical exploration in the region is strongly encouraging for exploration expansion in this discovery area.

ACME Lithium Successfully Completes 10-Day Pumping Test at Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project

ACME Lithium Successfully Completes 10-Day Pumping Test at Clayton Valley Lithium Brine Project

ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") is pleased to report that the Company has successfully completed a 10-day pumping test at test well TW-1 located in Clayton Valley, Nevada. The data generated during the test will be used to estimate the transmissivity and the storativity of the Lower Gravel Unit (LGU) at the TW-1 location. Preliminary Phase 1 and Phase 2 data suggest the perforated casing of TW-1 captures approximately 500 feet of potential lithium brine aquifer hosted in the LGU. The LGU is the basal gravel overlaying bedrock in Clayton Valley.

ACME Lithium Announces Results from Phase 1 Winter Drilling Program at Shatford Lake Manitoba

ACME Lithium Announces Results from Phase 1 Winter Drilling Program at Shatford Lake Manitoba

ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the "Company", or "ACME") announced today drill core sample results from its 2023 winter drill program at its 100% owned Shatford Lake and Birse Lake lithium projects in southeastern Manitoba, Canada. ACME's Shatford-Birse claim area are contiguous to the south of Sinomine's world-class Tanco Mine, a Lithium, Cesium and Tantalum producer (LCTs) since 1969.

Core drilling was based on geological prospecting/mapping with lithium determinations by LIBS and geophysical magnetic interpretation. Drilling and magnetic interpretation was successful in defining broad structural belts with multiple unexposed pegmatites and specific cross structural features in these broad belts that control pegmatite injection. Recent results from this maiden drilling program at Shatford Lake will help the Company vector in the fertile pegmatite zones. Twenty-six pegmatites were intersected in 6 of 8 drill holes.

Battery Metals Investing in Australia

The energy sector is largely shifting away from carbon-based fuels and towards renewable alternatives, with the green battery boom being an especially salient example of this trend.

As the name suggests, battery metals are key components of electric vehicle (EV) batteries, and as this sector continues to grow these commodities are quickly becoming critical raw materials. What metals are in batteries? Investors have likely already heard about lithium and cobalt, the darlings of the EV industry, but other common battery metals include nickel, graphite, manganese and vanadium.

Among the battery metals Australia produces, lithium reigns supreme. In fact, the country is the world’s largest supplier of this popular metal. Cobalt, graphite and manganese are also part of the lithium-ion battery market, while vanadium can be used to create vanadium redox batteries.
