RETRANSMISSION: Spearmint Hires Forage Fusion Drilling Ltd. for the Maiden Drill Program on the 'Goose Gold Project' Directly Bordering New Found Gold Corp.
James Nelson, President of Spearmint Resources stated, "We are pleased to hire Forage Fusion Drilling Ltd. as the driller for the fully-funded maiden drill program on our 'Goose Gold Project' directly bordering New Found Gold Corp.'s (NFGC-NYSE) (NFG-TSX.V) Queensway project. With the drill permit now in hand and the driller hired, we anticipate our maiden drill program to begin in July. Not only do we border New Found Gold, but our 'Goose Gold Project' is approximately 1 km from their "Keats Zone" discovery making this one of, if not the closest projects to the discovery. This drill program is funded with flow-through funds on hand which included an investment by certain funds managed by Sprott Asset Management LP. Mr. Sprott is also one of the largest shareholders of New Found Gold. Spearmint also recently announced a major upgrade to our resource estimate in Nevada on our McGee Lithium Clay Deposit, having more than doubled the previous amount of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) to 1,369,000 indicated tonnes and 723,000 inferred tonnes of LCE for a total of 2,092,000 tonnes of LCE. We feel the second half of 2022 could have a significant impact for our shareholders."
