Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) – Noram Ventures Inc. (TSX-V: NRM / Frankfurt: N7R / OTCBB: NRVTF) (“Noram” or the “Company”) is pleased to report it has hired Harrison Land Services (“HLS”) to carryout an initial drilling program on its Clayton Valley Lithium Brine/Clay Project.

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)Noram Ventures Inc. (TSX-V: NRM / Frankfurt: N7R / OTCBB: NRVTF) (“Noram” or the “Company”) is pleased to report it has hired Harrison Land Services (“HLS”) to carryout an initial drilling program on its Clayton Valley Lithium Brine/Clay Project.
The drilling program will follow the recommendations set out in the recently completed National Instrument (“NI”) 43-101 Technical Report and focus on the Zeus, Zeus Extension and Hades portions of the South Block claim group (Figure 1). A total of 55 drill-hole targets have been selected for core drilling based on the results from three phases of surface and sub-surface sampling.
Targets include 45 holes on the Zeus claims and five holes on the border of the Zeus Extension claims (Photo 1) to test areas that returned some of the highest sample values (up to 1,670 ppm lithium in ZS-2-019); and five holes on the Hades claims adjacent to the historical shaft (Photo 2), where lithium values over 1,000 ppm were sampled from the spoil pile. Drill holes are expected to range from 60 to 80 feet (18 – 24 meters) in depth.
The objective of the drilling program is to begin to quantify the volume and grade of the mineralization, and generate data for a resource estimate to move the project forward. In conjunction with the drilling, additional surface sampling will be undertaken to add to the body of project knowledge and help complete a resource estimate model.
Leading the drilling team will be Gavin Harrison, President of HLS, who has over a decade of mineral exploration experience; and Bradley Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist, who has over 40 years of global experience within the exploration sector. All drill core samples will be sent to ALS in Reno, Nevada, for MS-ICP analysis.
Mark Ireton, President of Noram, said, “The analytical results from this initial drilling campaign will assist us greatly in determining the depth and breadth of the lithium-rich sediments that occur on our South Block claims.”
The technical information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Bradley C. Peek, MSc and Certified Professional Geologist, who is a Qualified Person with respect to Noram’s  Clayton Valley Lithium Project as defined under NI 43-101.
