Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 21, 2023) - Indigo Exploration Inc. (TSXV: IXI) (OTCQB: IXIXF) (FSE: INEN) (the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on the timing for its maiden lithium brine resource estimate for the wholly-owned Fox Creek West project in Alberta, Canada. Following on from the engagement of Sproule as announced on September 6, 2023, the Company and Sproule have been actively working on compiling the necessary information for Sproule to calculate an initial resource. Based on significant advancements in data compilation and geological modelling, Indigo has been informed by Sproule that the inferred resources are anticipated in early October.
"The delivery of a maiden NI 43-101 resource estimate for the first of our lithium brine projects represents a significant milestone for the team and Company," commented Paul Cowley, President & CEO of Indigo Exploration. "Working with one of the preeminent oil and gas engineering firms that has extensive experience in petroleum reservoirs and deep knowledge of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, coupled with their execution of multiple resource estimates for lithium brine resources in Western Canada, is what allows us to expedite the delivery of a resource estimate with confidence. This is an opportune time for lithium and lithium brine projects given the current supply deficits driven by the increasing adoption rate of electrified transportation and recent advancements within the area with E3 Lithium's commissioning of the first DLE plant to process lithium brines."
