Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)Noram Ventures Inc.(TSXV:NRM) (OTCBB:NRVTF:US) is pleased to report it has engaged Bradley C. Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist to take additional surface samples on its 100% owned Hector Lode Lithium Project, ,, which is located adjacent to an existing bentonite/hectorite mine in San Bernardino County, CA.
Bradley Peek, Noram’s independent geological consultant,  had the following to say about the Project:
“Lessons learned from our first geological and sampling phase provided a clear direction for this new sampling phase. We expect the assay’s will lead to lithium values comparable to the 1% Li2O reported in the literature (Ames, L. L., Sand, L. B., Jr., and Goldich, S. S., 1958, A Contribution on the Hector, California Bentonite Deposit:  Econ. Geol., Vol. 53, pp. 22 – 37 and Foshag, W. F. and Woodford, A. O., 1936, Benonitic Magnesian Clay-Mineral from California: Amer. Mineralogist, Vol. 21, pp. 238 – 244). Based on the results of the sample analyses, a more extensive sampling and geological mapping program was recommended to understand and expand on the initial results, and define which areas contain the highest lithium values. Twenty-one new samples have now been collected and are being sent to ALS Labs in Reno, NV for analysis. During the initial sampling an area of previous excavation was found (see Figure 1). During this second sampling phase other areas with past excavations were also discovered and sampled. These areas contained geology very similar to that described in the two references cited above. Once the geological mapping and sampling phases have been completed, shallow core drilling (60–80 feet or 18 – 24 meters) has been recommended to provide a more in-depth understanding of the geology, lithium grades and thicknesses. Core drilling will be recommended based upon the results of the surface sample analyses and geological mapping.
