Digitisation of Historical Datasets Reveal Multiple High- Grade Uranium & Copper Targets at Radium Point

White Cliff Minerals Limited (White Cliff or the Company) is pleased to announce early results from the digitisation and GIS integration of historic, but high quality analogue datasets for the northern half of the Radium Point Project (“the North”). The North, as the name implies, refers to the northern half of the approximately 2,9002 km Uranium (U), Gold (Au), Silver (Ag), Copper (Cu) licence area held by the Company. Results have exceeded expectations and highlight multiple large & high-grade U-Cu-Au & Ag targets, all of which will be assessed during the upcoming 2024 field work.


Highlights include:

  • Examples of some of the highly anomalous rock chip assays from sampling carried out by state survey and previous operators throughout the North can be seen below. Importantly, subsequent follow up work of these exceptional results and prospects appear to be limited:
    • Thompson Showing:
      • 14.15% U3O8, 6.22g/t Au and 122g/t Ag
      • 7.5% Cu, 1.63% U3O8, 729/t Ag and 1.56g/t Au
      • 15.15g/t Au, 6.6% Cu, 2.32% U3O8 137g/t Ag, 1.11% Cobalt and 0.58% Nickel
    • Spud Bay:
      • 22.72% Cu, 619g/t (~20oz) Ag and 0.59 % Pb
      • 11.69% Cu, 1330g/t (~40oz) Ag, 8.30% Zn and 0.44% Pb
      • 6.61% Cu, 1427g/t (~45oz) Ag, 3.66% Zn and 0.35% Pb
    • Bullwinkle:
      • 7.43% U3O8 and 2.77% Cu
    • Doghead South:
      • 1.56% U3O8, 10.30% Cu, 3.68g/t Au and 34g/t Ag
      • 3.85% Cu, 4.05g/t Au and 7g/t Ag
    • Sparkplug Lake:
      • 8.28g/t Au, 1.86% Cu and 43.4g/t Ag
      • 3.97% Cu, 4.42g/t Au and 12.4g/t Ag
      • 3.01% Cu, 5.37g/t Au and 2.60g/t Ag

Commenting on the update, White Cliff Chairman, Roderick McIllree said:

“Firstly, I would like to express my appreciation to shareholders for their patience while the Company works through the digitisation and verification process for Radium Point. It has taken considerable time to collate and verify these historical results however it has been worth the wait. Work continues on the assimilation of the remaining datasets for the balance of the 2,900 km2 licence area however the tenor of these results already gives us great confidence in our upcoming field season.

It’s important to stress that these results are from the northern half and near mine project areas only. The area to the south contains results that appear higher grade in nature with a larger surficial expression however we need more time to complete the verification process for this vast area and will release these results in due course.

I am very comfortable saying this is the most exciting multi-element project I have seen, even though this is a first pass on these near mine and regional anomalies I am confident we are well placed to make significant discoveries on our ground during 2024.

Utilising this new database of geophysical targets alongside surface geochemistry will assist greatly with the finalisation of our target definition for the upcoming field program. I make no guarantees, but with results like this, on only half of the assessed ground to date its, worth making every effort possible to drill this project during the coming year.

During the coming weeks we will conclude the 2024 work programmes at both projects to deploy what will be a holistic campaign leveraging all available synergies between activity, location and service provider”.

AM Resources Completes Compilation Work with the Discovery of 94 New Pegmatites for a Total of 281 Pegmatites on its 1,500 km² Land Package in Austria

AM Resources Corporation(“AM Resources” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AMR) (Frankfurt: 76A), a dynamic junior mining company focused on the exploration and development of high-potential pegmatite lithium deposits, is pleased to announce that it has completed the compilation of government data on its newly acquired 1,500 km2 land package (see press release dated March 21, 2024) with the discovery of 94 new pegmatites. AM Resources has now identified a total of 281 pegmatites, consolidating its strategic position in one of Austria’s most prospective lithium areas.

  • Recently announced 1,500 km2 land package gives AM Resources control over a large area of the Austrian Pegmatite Belt.
  • Compilation of government data resulted in the discovery of 94 additional pegmatites across two groups, with sizes ranging from 40 metres to 2,100 metres.
  • Many pegmatites are strategically located within mica schists, indicating favorable conditions for lithium-bearing minerals.
  • Latest discoveries continue to reinforce AM Resources’ position in the Austrian Pegmatite Belt, located within proximity to European battery manufacturers.

Lithium Market Update: Q1 2024 in Review

Lithium prices remained subdued in the first quarter of 2024, well below highs set in late 2022 and 2023. Various factors, including oversupply and weak electric vehicle (EV) demand, kept prices muted over the 90 day period.

Even as a market glut weighs on prices, Fastmarkets is forecasting that lithium supply will increase by 30 percent by the end of the year. The firm notes in a January report that some new supply is being ramped up, while some high-cost output is being cut — it remains to be seen how the current price environment will impact these plans.

"Market participants expect downstream lithium demand to remain relatively weak and with no imminent concerns about supply shortages, we forecast a tentatively balanced market in 2024," Fastmarkets explains.

Top 7 Lithium Stocks of 2024

The lithium market exhibited greater stability in Q1 after fluctuating in 2023. Lithium carbonate prices, which began the quarter at US$13,377.44 per metric ton, concluded around US$14,874.31, up 11 percent.

Market oversupply prompted some lithium producers to trim their 2024 output targets in hopes that excess material will be absorbed. Spending for project expansions and new developments was also put on the back burner.

“We believe we are approaching the bottom of the market, considering the industry is moving fairly deep into the cost curve. This is likely to support lithium prices as producers consider further production cuts to balance the market and stem further losses," states a January report from price and market reporting agency Fastmarkets.

Strong electric vehicle sales in January helped support prices for the important battery metal, which continued to rise through February and March, reaching a quarterly high of US$16,109. This rally was fueled by reports from China indicating a sustained growth trend in lithium demand for batteries and energy storage technology.
