Green Battery Applies for Berkwood Graphite Drill Permits


Video Link:

Green Battery Minerals Inc. ("Green" or the "Company") (TSXV:GEM ) ( FSE:BK2P ) ( WKN:A2QENP ) ( OTC:G B MIF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the design of an up to 6000m drill program on its road accessible Berkwood Graphite Project located in Northern Quebec, Canada, and permitting is underway. The program has been designed by the Company's Board of Directors and technical advisors as well as we have engaged Longford Exploration to help coordinate the fieldwork and synchronize the program, as they have done so successfully in all our previous drill programs.  In the summer of 2019, (pre covid), Green Battery's technical team visited the Berkwood property and conducted a detailed survey of the selected drill locations in order to determine the best roads and trails to be used or opened and to locate appropriate sources for water for the drill program. The team also channel sampled new undrilled graphite outcrops that were completely exposed at surface and test results proved numerous areas with high-grade graphite with excellent metallurgy. (NR Oct 1st, 2019).

The drill program this summer will be done to accomplish three goals.

  1. 1. The first objective is to conduct step out and infill drilling designed to increase the already proven resource on Zone 1 (see news release dated Aug 19, 2019).   Having hit graphite in every hole drilled to date on Zone 1 this is not an exploratory program but rather completely designed to increase the companies resource size.

  1. 2. The second objective is to drill Zone 6.  The Company is fortunate that the graphite structure on our property bends and folds and causes numerous outcrops. One of these large outcrops is zone 6 and it has not been drilled before.   Channel samples from the zone have already proven to contain extremely high-grade graphite with excellent metallurgy.  Having surface sampled the zone 6 drill locations, and proved there is graphite there already, mitigates much of the risk going into this drill program. It is now a matter of "how big and what grade is the graphitic body" as compared to "is it graphite.

  1. 3. The third objective to use these drill results to further our preliminary economic assessmentPEA. PEAs include information on mineral project economics at various metal/mineral prices.  This will include an estimate NPV (Net Present Value) of the resource and an estimated IRR (Internal Rate of Return). (NR May 20 th , 2021)

Green Battery Minerals Inc. has a proven road-accessible graphite resource located in Northern Quebec. The uniqueness of our graphite is what makes us different from many other of the world's graphite deposits. Over the past five years, the Company has discovered and developed its Berkwood Graphite Project which has shown to have not only extremely high grades, but also extremely large flake size compared to other world graphite sources. These characteristics allow us to use a cleaner and greener purification process that reduces the use of hazardous materials. (NR Feb 7th, 2019 and Aug 27th, 2019).

ZONE 6  Geophysical Anomalies representing a large outcropping graphitic body that has returned excellent high grade graphite with excellent metallurgy.

The Company's graphite is outcropping on surface, which means there will be less waste rock removal and less disruption of the earth, as well as easier to reclaim back to its natural state.  These qualities increase the economics of the project significantly as well as allow us to maintain our environmentally friendly business model.   Green Battery is also pleased to state that the Company will benefit from existing extensive infrastructure including hydroelectric power, year-round maintained highways and a local skilled workforce.  All of our properties are road accessible so we can drive to our properties and there is accommodation close by. All these factors help make our program greener, cleaner and maintains the Companies strong ESG mandate.

CEO Tom Yingling states: " I am very pleased to have the drill permitting process underway.  We have a very exciting and large drill program designed.  Drilling zone 1 for the fifth time should add significantly to the Company's resource size as a lot of the drilling is low risk step out and infill drilling from previous successful drill holes. I am pleased to finally drill zone 6 as well as it has tested graphite from its outcrops and channel samples, so we know its graphite now we just need to see how big it is.  The geophysical anomaly which was used to initially target, discover and sample it indicates it could be very large."

The Fed Left Rates Unchanged — What Happened to the Gold Price?

The US Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged at 5.25 to 5.5 percent at its latest meeting.

The central bank was widely expected to stay the course at this month's gathering, but market watchers believe there's still one more 25 basis point hike left in this cycle — an update to the dot plot, which shows where each Fed official thinks the federal funds rate is headed, shows that the median projection is 5.6 percent by the end of 2023.

Looking forward to 2024, two cuts of a quarter point each are anticipated. That's less than the four decreases insiders were forecasting three months ago, which Andrew Patterson, senior economist at Vanguard, believes is a "telling" change.

Will Rhind: Gold in Good Position Ahead of Fed; Still Positive on Platinum

The US Federal Reserve's latest meeting will wrap up on Wednesday (September 20), and gold investors are watching closely to see whether the central bank hikes interest rates again or leaves them unchanged at 5.25 to 5.5 percent.

Speaking to the Investing News Network, Will Rhind, CEO of GraniteShares, said he thinks an increase is unlikely.

"I only see the probability of a rate hike happening if clearly there's some data to suggest that inflation's on the up again, or something that provides some catalyst for them to raise interest rates," he said during an interview. "I do think that by and large we're at the top of the cycle, and we are kind of on the way down, albeit not immediately."

Gold Grain Morphology: A Valuable Method of Gold Exploration (Updated 2023)

The high value of gold means that a deposit of very small concentration can be economically mined — a fact that is great news for gold miners, but complicated for gold explorers.

Gold is often found in ores composed of rock with very small particles. When it comes to extraction, ore with grades of gold as little as 0.5 parts per million (ppm) can be economically mined. Because ore grades of 30 ppm are usually needed before gold is visible to the naked eye, gold in most mines is invisible.

Not only can viewing individual grains of gold provide a challenge, but the nature of prospecting means that finding these grains of gold through conventional sampling can prove nearly impossible.

Kestrel Gold - Samples up to 2.051 g/t Au at King Solomon's Dome, Follow-up Drilling Planned

Kestrel Gold Inc. ("Kestrel" or the "Corporation", TSX-V:KGC) is pleased to announce preliminary results from the 2023 prospecting program on it's 100% owned King Solomon Dome property ("KSD"). The property is located in the Yukon portion of the Tintina Gold Belt, 35 minutes by road south of Dawson City, within the famous Klondike placer gold district. Creeks draining KSD have produced significant amounts of placer gold and Kestrel is evaluating the property's potential to host economic bedrock sources for this gold

The target at KSD is an orogenic-style north-south trending quartz vein system located over an approximate 1.0 kilometre east-west by 2.2 kilometre north-south area. The 2023 program focused on the Dominion Creek drainage basin which drains the southern portion of the property. Prospecting of new road cuts and active placer pits in this area identified numerous areas of sheared, quartz veined, pyritic and carbonate altered bedrock or rubblecrop, sampling of which returned values ranging from
