VANCOUVER, BC, January 30, 2023 /CNW/ – Nevada Sunrise Metals Corp. (“Nevada Sunrise” or the “Company”, formerly Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp.) (TSXV: NEV) (OTC: NVSGF) is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with McClelland Laboratories Inc. of Funken, NV (“MLI”) to perform metallurgical leach testing on samples of lithium mineralization intersected by the Company at the Gemini Lithium Project (“Gemini” or the “Project”) County of Esmeralda, Nevada. Gemini is in the Lida Valleyapproximately 25 miles (38 kilometers) southwest of the only producing lithium mine in The United States at silver peak, Nevada.
“Nevada Sunrise looks forward to the continued collaboration between MLI and ours Nevada-based metallurgical consultant, Mr. Willem Duyvesteyn“, said Warren Stanyer, President and CEO of Nevada Sunrise. “We anticipate that the work of MLI’s technical team will provide important information on lithium mineralization and extractability from sample material collected during our 2022 drilling campaign to guide future exploration and development at Gemini.”
MLI has been providing metallurgical, environmental, analytical testing and consulting services to the mineral exploration industry since 1987 and operates an ISO 17025 accredited facility providing high quality laboratory services throughout all phases of project development and project operations. Willem Duyvesteyn, MSc., is known as an innovator in his field and is the principal inventor and author of over 100 patents for mineral and hydrocarbon recovery technologies, including numerous applications for the extraction and leaching of metals and minerals from ores, brines and solutions (see Nevada Sunrise press release dated November 15, 2022).
Gemini consists of 582 unpatented placer and vein claims (covering approximately nine square miles) to the west Lida Valley, County of Esmeraldaabout 10 kilometers east of the town of Lida, Nevada. The Lida Valley is a shallow, dry basin with a similar geological setting to the more familiar ones Clayton Valley basin where Albermarle Corporation operates the Silver Peak lithium brine mine, which has operated continuously since 1966.
Gemini is next to that Gold Point solar energy zonea Office of Land Management Land reserves earmarked for solar and wind power generation projects until 2033. Exploration at Gemini is complemented by the Company’s 80.09 acres/ft/year water right, a requirement for exploration and development of lithium brine projects in Nevada. According to the laws of NevadaNo water may be pumped from an underground source without a valid water permit.
In March 2022Nevada Sunrise has begun drilling geophysical targets at Gemini and has intersected significant zones of lithium mineralization in sediment and groundwater in the first two drill holes (see Nevada Sunrise press release dated June 6, 2022). Drilling will continue in 2023 with a Phase 2 drill program of up to six additional drill holes. Final geochemical assays for lithium in sediments and groundwater are pending for drill hole GEM23-03, which was completed in 2017 Mid December 2022.
