  • Results up to 1270 ppm and key lithium bearing sections averaging up to 857 ppm
  • Exploration team has high confidence in their theory that a down-dropped clay deposit exists, and the phase one drill program results has provided valuable information to locate the extension of the lithium clays ‘buried at depth’
  • Results to date have guided additional staking, which the Company advanced for competitive reasons prior to announcing drill results

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (May 31st, 2022) – Victory Resources Corporation (CSE: VR) (FWB: VR61) (OTC: VRCFF) (“Victory” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the Company’s exploration team has received lab results from its phase one, three of 15-hole drill program and as a result of its analysis has staked additional ground based on its geologic model of the target lithium deposit.

“The Victory exploration team has advanced the Smokey Lithium property substantially through the analysis of lab results, and upon those strong results through the additional staking which was conducted for competitive reasons to protect the Company’s interests,” said Mr. Mark Ireton, Victory President, and CEO. “The Company’s exploration team has advanced this property based on its theory that a significant lithium deposit is buried at depth along the adjacent Jindalee boundary margins nearest to the fault line. We want our shareholders to understand that of the three holes, one had impressive lithium values, and the other two provided important information as to the potential location and boundaries of a Li deposit. In total, the drill results from all three holes guided the additional staking so that the Company can continue to define what it believes is a significant lithium deposit buried at depth.”

Phase One Drill Program Results and Analysis Highlights


Victory executed an initial program of three drill holes with the goal aimed at locating lithium-bearing clays, similar to what has been discovered at surface by Jindalee, the neighboring property.

A northeast/southwest oriented fault becomes obscure on either end as it trends into Victory’s property. Victory’s exploration team theorizes that an extension of the lithium bearing clays, identified by Jindalee, would likely exist under the Victory property.


Victory’s Phase One drilling program produced favorable results. This initial drill program was designed to look at a wider area of the property, measure the normal fault’s displacement, and prove lithium deposits in the subsurface.

Three holes were completed as previously announced: Holes 05, 09, and 15.

  • Hole 05 encountered a large section of interesting clays from 120 to 158 feet. However, significantly enriched lithium was not encountered. Hole 05 is on the down-dropped side of the NE-SW striking normal fault. This mapped structure is thought to have displaced the known lithium bearing section to depths deeper than the exploration hole was advanced.
  • Hole 09 ended in mineralization at 417 feet (Table 1). The highest single sample interval (1270 ppm) for Phase 1 was found at 377-381 feet. The lithium values for depths 325-417 feet range from 240-1270 ppm. The average lithium value from this portion is 640 ppm. From 373 to 409 feet, the average lithium value is 857 ppm. The aforementioned section of core was chosen because it has sampled intervals with lithium values greater than 1000 ppm. It must be noted that at 417 feet where drilling stopped, the lithium deposit was present, and at this time Victory does not have the information to determine the full depth of the intersected lithium mineralization.
  • Hole 15, located on the down-dropped side of the fault, intersected 312 feet of poorly consolidated sands and sandy conglomerates. The target zone was not intersected and is now thought to occur at deeper levels due to the down dropping on the mapped normal fault.

About Smokey Lithium, Nevada

Victory’s Smokey Lithium project is a clay lithium property that lies approximately 20 miles north of Clayton Valley, to the west of American Lithium’s flagship lithium project. Smokey Lithium is located northwest of Cypress’ Clayton Valley Lithium Project and to the southwest of American Lithium Corporation's Tonopah Lithium Claims Property in southwest Nevada. Esmeralda County Nevada is a prolific region for lithium clay deposits, (Noram, Cypress, American Lithium, Spearmint, Enertopia, and Jindalee).
