Spearmint commences operations on Perron-East Gold Project in Quebec

Oct 28, 2020

Spearmint Resources says it is underway with an initial work program at Spearmint's Perron-East gold project in the direct vicinity of AMEX Exploration Inc.'s Perron property. The geological team conducting the work program, Laurentia Exploration, is a full-service exploration provider staffed with people specializing in gold exploration, grassroot exploration, structural geology, drilling, remote logistics, and deposit evaluation. Laurentia Exploration also brings a very good knowledge of the Normetal Area. Their geologists are associated with numerous discoveries and development projects in the region. The phase 1 work program will include a complete compilation and evaluation of historical data, a high-resolution magnetic survey, an extensive sampling program, and the identification of the highest priority drill-hole targets for phase 2. Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Spearmint may not necessarily be indicative to the presence of mineralization on the Company's properties.

James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated "We are pleased to be underway with operations on our Perron-East gold project in Quebec which has multiple fault lines running through our property. The team at Laurentia Exploration have developed significant experience in the area having done work for AMEX Exploration as well as Starr Peak Exploration and we look forward to what this phase 1 work program will uncover. We are also awaiting results from multiple other projects. In Clayton Valley, Nevada, the first three completed drill holes from our multi-hole drill program targeting the known lithium clay formation that we share with Cypress Development Corp. were sent for assaying on a rush basis after encountering visual clay and clay intercepts ranging between 175-200 feet. Spearmint's previous drill results on the Clayton Valley lithium clay project have returned lithium values as high as 1670 ppm Li (see map). We are also eagerly awaiting results from Spearmint's recently completed phase 1 work program on the 'Goose' gold project which is directly bordering, and the closest property to, New Found Gold's original discovery hole in Newfoundland. New Found Gold continues to release fantastic drill results. The remainder of 2020 will be one of the most active periods in Company history."
