Spearmint engages Laurentia Exploration for Perron-East work program in Quebec near AMEX Exploration

Oct 11, 2020

Spearmint Resources Inc. has secured the services of Laurentia Exploration based out of Quebec to conduct the initial work program over Spearmint's Perron-East Gold project in the direct vicinity of AMEX Exploration Inc.'s Perron property. 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. 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 incredibly pleased to be working with the team at Laurentia. They have developed significant experience in the area having done work for AMEX Exploration, as well as Starr Peak Exploration. We are also now well underway on our multi-hole drill program in Clayton Valley, Nevada, targeting the known lithium clay formation that we share with Cypress Development Corp., on which Spearmint's previous drill results have returned lithium values as high as 1670 ppm Li (see map). These two factors coupled with the fact we are awaiting results from a recently completed work program on our 'Goose' gold project bordering New Found Gold in Newfoundland, we are clearly well underway with one of the most active periods in Company history."
