Vancouver, British Columbia – August 17, 2023: Lancaster Resources Inc. (CSE:LCR) (OTC Pink:LANRF) (FRA:6UFO) (“Lancaster”), is very pleased to announce the filing of annual renewals of BLM claims as part of the Alkali Flats option agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Alkali Flat Lithium Project. The annual filing with the BLM includes the original 67 claims for the Project along with a significant addition of 193 claims under the Area of Interest provisions under the option agreement. These 260 claims build out a contiguous mineral placer claim asset base over the heart of the Alkali Flats playa near Lordsburg, New Mexico.
Spanning ~5,200 acres, the claims cover the majority of the Alkali Flat playa and present significant exploration opportunities on leases with surface sediment concentrations up to ~149ppm Lithium.
“The potential for net zero or near zero lithium extraction from the Alkali Flat Lithium Project in New Mexico is exciting. With Direct Lithium Extraction technologies advancing to commercial scales and the feasibility of solar power in New Mexico, we’re optimistic about sustainably powering a Lithium DLE project,” says Lancaster VP of Engineering Andrew Watson. “The renewal of our expanded claim package sets us up for geophysical MT surveys and a maiden drilling program, where we hope to identify and sample lithium bearing subsurface brine for this promising lithium project.”
Lithium is a critical mineral to produce electric vehicle batteries and a host of other applications that are propelling the global shift towards decarbonization and renewable sources of energy.
Andrew Watson, PEng, a qualified person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this news release.
