Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – January 14, 2022) –( ) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the “Company” or “Spearmint”) is pleased to announce that drilling has now commenced on Spearmint’s 100-percent owned ‘McGee Lithium Clay Project’ in Clayton Valley, Nevada directly bordering and . On June 11, 2021, Spearmint received the Technical Report on its ‘McGee Lithium Clay Project’ which included a maiden resource estimate of 815,000 indicated tonnes and 191,000 inferred tonnes for a total of 1,006,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE). The Technical Report was prepared in accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 by Stantec Consultant Ltd.’s qualified persons (Allan Turner, PGeol, and Derek Loveday, PGeo). The goal of this drill program will be to increase the maiden resource estimate by following the drilling recommendations provided by Stantec in the Technical Report. Spearmint’s two other lithium projects in Clayton Valley, Nevada include the recently acquired ‘Green Clay Lithium Project’ comprised of 97 contiguous claims totaling approximately 2,000 acres, and the ‘Elon Lithium Brine Project’ which has access to some of the deepest parts of the only lithium brine basin in production in North America. Lithium prices have recently broken out to new all-time highs, increasing by over 500-percent since the start of 2021.
On December 22, 2021,announced it “successfully completed a seven-day continuous run at the company’s pilot plant. During this period, the pilot plant operated at its designed feed rate of one tonne per day of lithium claystone from the company’s Clayton Valley lithium project.” As seen on the map below, and Spearmint share this blanket-like, lithium-bearing claystone formation. 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 Resources, stated, “We are very pleased to have now started this next phase of drilling on the ‘McGee Lithium Clay Project’ in Clayton Valley, Nevada, with the goal to build upon our maiden resource estimate of 815,000 indicated tonnes and 191,000 inferred tonnes for a total of 1,006,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE). Since releasing the results from our last drill program in February 2021, where we discovered lithium in all ten out of ten drill holes, lithium prices have gone parabolic, increasing by approximately 500%. Clearly, this is an exciting time for lithium companies in Clayton Valley, Nevada, and an opportune time to be recommencing operations on our lithium holdings. Along with our Perron-East Gold Project in Quebec, we now have two major drill programs currently underway. Spearmint has approximately $3 million in the treasury with no need to raise additional funds and we are about to enter a major news flow cycle. We are headed into 2022 with a full head of steam and potential catalysts coming ahead on multiple projects.”

Kibali Delivers Another Stellar Performance and Expects to Grow Its Mineral Reserves Net of Depletion
All amounts expressed in US dollars KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of Congo, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Barrick Gold Corporation (NYSE:GOLD)…
All amounts expressed in US dollars
KINSHASA, Democratic Republic of Congo, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —(NYSE:GOLD) ( ) – The Kibali gold mine produced a total of 812,152 ounces1, well within guidance for 2021, and expects to increase its mineral reserves net of depletion for the third successive year, maintaining its plus 10-year life as one of ’s Tier One2 assets.
At a media briefing here, Barrick president and chief executive Mark Bristow noted that this performance, which grew steadily stronger during the year, was achieved with no lost time injuries during the last quarter. Like all Barrick’s mines worldwide, Kibali retained its ISO 45001 safety and ISO 14001 environmental accreditations.
At the same time, Kibali continued to lead the group’s clean energy drive with power sourced from its three continuously upgraded hydropower stations supported by new back-up battery technology.
“Kibali’s performance was supported by reinforced Covid-19 protocols to deal with the fourth wave of the virus. The mine worked closely with the DRC’s health authorities and the provincial government to source vaccines and to date has partially vaccinated 60% of its workforce, with 43% of the workforce fully vaccinated,” Bristow said.
“It also strengthened its local business partnerships to build a sustainable economy in the region. During Q4 it spent $40.6 million with local contractors and suppliers, bringing the total since the start of Kibali to $2.1 billion. To date, Kibali has invested some $3.7 billion in the DRC in the form of taxes, permits, infrastructure, salaries and payments to local partners.”
During the fourth quarter Kibali paid a dividend of $170 million to shareholders of Barrick, AngloGold Ashanti and government parastatal, SOKIMO, bringing the total distribution for the year to $200 million. Bristow said Barrick and the Congolese authorities were working together on a program to release cash for the repayment of offshore loans.
During the quarter Kibali launched the Garamba Alliance, a biodiversity partnership with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) designed to preserve this World Heritage park through anti-poaching actions and other conservation initiatives. This partnership is also designed to secure a sustainable economic future for the local community surrounding the park.
Looking ahead, Bristow said underground drilling at the KCD orebody was defining a new high-grade lode above the base of the shaft infrastructure. This was an exciting discovery which could add an entirely new orebody to the existing KCD series of orebodies.

High-Grade Assay Results at the Parnell-Vulture Trend
HIGHLIGHTS First phase of a 15,000 metre reverse circulation (“RC”) drilling program across shallow oxide mineralization on granted mining leases…
- First phase of a 15,000 metre reverse circulation (“RC”) drilling program across shallow oxide mineralization on granted mining leases at the Parnell-Vulture Trend was completed prior to the 2021 holiday period, with 83 holes drilled for a total of 5,200 metres
- PhotonAssay gold results from Parnell have been received, with significant assays including:
- 7 m at 7.75 g/t gold from 31 m in 21NU0198,
- 4 m at 10.19 g/t gold from 31 m in 21NU0196,
- 13 m at 2.51 g/t gold from 21 m in 21NU0156, and
- 8 m at 3.14 g/t gold from 4 m in 21NU0156
- Initial results received from Vulture include:
- 8 m at 10.02 g/t gold from 11 m in 21NU0216
- Further results from holes drilled prior to the holiday period will be released in coming weeks
- Drilling on the Parnell – Vulture trend is scheduled to recommence on January 24, 2022
The above results are not necessarily representative of mineralization throughout the Parnell-Vulture Trend. Refer to Table 1 for drill results for all holes drilled to date at Parnell – Vulture.
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 21, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — figure 1). Parnell – Vulture is located some 45 kms from the Company’s Golden Eagle processing facility (“Golden Eagle Plant”) and is accessed by a robust, reliable haul road and associated infrastructure.(“Novo” or the “Company”) ( , NVO.WT & NVO.WT.A) (OTCQX: NSRPF) is pleased to provide a drilling update for the Parnell-Vulture trend in Western Australia. The RC drilling planned at Parnell and Vulture is part of the Nullagine Gold Project (“NGP”) exploration program ramp-up, with forward programs currently being generated at several priority basement targets (
(Figure 1: Location map for NGP showing Novo tenure and priority prospects.)
Drilling completed before the holiday period comprised 83 RC holes for 5,200 metres (figure 4), drilled by experienced contractor Stark Drilling using a truck mounted Schramm 450. The initial program at Parnell focussed on every alternate planned drill line, in order to fast track strike coverage. The quick assay turnaround means that best drilling intersections can be followed up immediately whilst the remainder of the program is ongoing.
Parnell – Vulture covers a strike length of approximately 2 kms and contains a series of vein-hosted targets with historical drill intercepts including 9 m at 8.4 g/t gold from 7 m, 12 m at 14.6 g/t gold from 40 m and 7 m at 6.1 g/t gold from 40 m1. These results are not necessarily representative of mineralization throughout the district. Refer to Table 2 for drill results for all holes drilled to date at Parnell – Vulture.
Recent results for Parnell – Vulture, received via the Company’s priority arrangement with Intertek2, show similar width and grade tenor as historical drilling intersections, improving confidence in historical data and potential strike extent.
Most significant results are located around the historic workings at Parnell, including 4 m at 10.19 g/t gold in hole 21NU0196 (figure 2). The main target is a ~ 10m wide E-W to WNW trending shear variably intruded by porphyry. Mineralization dips moderately to steeply to the south (generally 70 degrees). Sandstone and interbedded siltstone-sandstone sequences adjacent to the main shear are extremely bleached in the weathering profile, indicating likely sericite alteration of the original rock. Alteration is up to 50 m wide. Several other dykes are present in the area, mainly sub-parallel to stratigraphy, including a 6 m thick dolerite dyke and a hornblende porphyritic gabbro.
Results show good continuity along strike (figure 3), and on section show numerous small but frequent high-grade shoot like components. Further infill and extensional drilling will be designed to test this area.
(Figure 2, section at Parnell showing 21NU0196 results in relation to the main shear zone)
Importantly a series of significant drill intersections are located approximately 550 m along strike to the north-west including 13 m at 2.51 g/t gold from 21 m in 21NU0156, and 8 m at 3.14 g/t gold from 4 m in 21NU0156 (figure 3). This shows the complexity of the system at Parnell and the scale potential of the system along strike.
In addition, the 6 m at 5.28 g/t gold from 29 m in 21NU0204 is located to the north of Parnell in one of the mapped vein swarms. The vein swarm was identified from rock sampling and anomalous results in historical drilling and was tested with a single line of drilling.
Assays received to date also included the first batch from Vulture, including 8 m at 10.02 g/t gold from 11 m in 21NU0216 drilled adjacent to a historical working and in an area of complex quartz veining. Historical results in this area are sparse, and include a best result of 12 m at 2.76 g/t. These results are not necessarily representative of mineralization throughout Vulture. All other results from Vulture are pending and are anticipated within the next three to four weeks.
(Figure 3: Map of historical and Novo significant intercepts at Parnell and Vulture prospect to date.)
(Figure 4: RC drilling status at Parnell and Vulture.)
Drilling was based on detailed mapping and targeted to be perpendicular to mineralization as much as practical. In some areas, the geology is complex and due to the explorative nature of the work, the true width of mineralization cannot yet be precisely determined.
RC samples from Parnell and Vulture were submitted to Intertek in Perth, Australia. Samples are crushed to -2 mm and RSD split into a single 500-gram jar for PhotonAssay. To test for gold variability and potential coarse gold effect, field duplicates and crushed duplicates were analysed. Standards and blanks are inserted in the sample sequence to test for lab performance.
