VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (February 10, 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 begun its drilling program on the Company’s Smokey Lithium Property in Nevada, where its exploration team has identified drill targets that will determine whether a relationship exists between the Smokey Lithium Property and the high grade Lithium zone on the adjacent Jindalee property.
“The Company’s initial 3 holes of its 15-hole drilling exploration program aims to prove its geologic concept, specifically, to test along the Jindalee boundary margins, nearest to the fault line. The program is designed to reduce the depths required to reach clays and attempt to capture the full thickness of the claystone,” said Mr. Mark Ireton, Victory President and CEO. “The remaining 12 permitted holes will be utilized for locating extensions of the clay mineralization, test depths of clays and overburden and ultimately provide data for purposes of resource modelling and follow up drilling.”
Smokey Lithium Drilling Progress Highlights
About Smokey Lithium, Nevada
Victory’s Smokey Lithium project is a clay lithium property that lies approximately 20 miles (32 km) north of Clayton Valley. Smokey Lithium is located 16 miles (25) km northwest of Cypress’ Clayton Valley Lithium Project and 22 miles (35 km) 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).
The Smokey Lithium property is located 22 miles (35 km) west of Tonopah, Nevada on the western margin of the Basin and Range province. The property's geology consists of Miocene - Pliocene tuff deposits, claystones, and siliciclastic beds (Esmeralda Formation) with overlying younger alluvium deposits and desert pavement. The claystone, which can carry high lithium concentrations, is observed at surface as highly weathered light grey to tan mounds of unconsolidated clay from 0.10 - 1.50 meters thick. The flat lying nature of the claystones, together with the frequent occurrence of transported cover requires drilling to fully validate and assess Smokey Lithium’s the potential as indicated by surface sampling.
