Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire) - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible – CUSIP 080499403); (“Belmont”, or the “Company).
Further to our news release of March 14, 2018, Belmont Resources Inc. has initiated discussions with companies in the lithium extraction space that have requested samples from the Kibby Basin for testing our soils and brine. This is a very positive step in establishing the company’s long term strategy.
The Company is planning up to five holes for the next phase of drilling, based on the potential aquifer locations indicated by the recent Quantec Geoscience’s Spartan Magnetotelluric (MT) survey. The Company is finalizing its drilling contractor and anticipates the confirmation of our drill permits shortly.
As previously announced the Company was very encouraged with last year’s drill core assays, ranging from 70 ppm to 200 ppm Li with 13 of 25 core samples assaying over 100 ppm Li; indicating that the sediments could be a potential source of lithium for the underlying aquifers.

On March 30, 2016; the Company acquired sixteen placer (16) mining claims, representing 1036 hectares (2,560 acres) in Esmeralda County, Nevada, U.S.A. The Kibby Basin property is located 65 km north of Clayton Valley, Nevada-U.S.A. The Company believes the property to be highly prospective to host lithium. Subsequent ground geophysics & gravity surveys, surface sampling and a two hole- 2046 ft. diamond drill program have confirmed the presence of lithium on Kibby.
On July 11, 2016; the Company reported it has arranged the staking of 213 x 20 acre additional placer mineral claims totaling approx. 1724 hectares (4,260 acres), adjoining the Kibby 16, increasing the total Kibby Basin land position (the “Property”) to 2,760 hectares (6,820 acres).
In 50/50 ownership with International Montoro Resources Inc., Belmont has acquired and is exploring joint venture opportunities for its two significant uranium properties (Crackingstone – 982 ha & Orbit Lake – 11,109 ha) in the Uranium City District in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada.
