Tearlach (TEA) has begun the first phase of drilling at its Gabriel Project in Nevada.

TonaTec Exploration LLC has mobilized a core drill rig. The drill program has been designed to confirm lithium mineralization intersected in holes drilled by Blackrock Silver Corp. (TSXV:BRC) and to complete step-out holes for prospective locations throughout the Gabriel property. Material from mineralized intervals will be utilized for initial metallurgical testing.

Highlights:

  • Accelerated drilling from the collaborative nature of the Joint Venture
  • Initial holes utilizing Blackrock Silver’s existing drill pads
  • 19-hole core drill
  • 3,000 metres of HQ core drilling
  • Estimated 2-3 months
  • Concurrent metallurgical testing
  • Further mapping and targeting for the extended drill program
  • Wide pattern to confirm and significantly extend the previously drilled zones

The Gabriel Lithium project has past lithium results comparable to its neighbour, American Lithium Corp. (TSXV:LI). Past lithium values up to 1,217 ppm lithium have been intercepted in drilling, in addition to the continuity of broad zones of mineralization up to 56.4 metres in thickness.

CEO Morgan Lekstrom hailed the depth and experience of the team as the key contributor to the speed at which they can execute from the project’s inception to drilling within a month.

“We believe this is only one step in a multipronged approach that uses concurrent geological and engineering processes to drive our project forward quickly. We are accelerating not only drilling and permitting but the ability to understand the larger picture for the Tonopah lithium district. We plan significant catalysts over the next few weeks and months that will provide a clear path forward for shareholders of Tearlach and our JV partner, Blackrock Silver. Being next to American Lithium and in a very mining-friendly jurisdiction has significant advantages as their resource size and potential district size makes what we believe Tonopah to be the fast-growing and future Lithium District in America.”

Tearlach is a Canadian exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of lithium projects.
