Spearmint Significantly Expands the Perron-East Gold Prospects Acreage in Quebec
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - February 14, 2020) - Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has significantly expanded the Perron-East Gold Prospects from approximately 2,000 acres to now covering approximately 10,000 acres consisting of 5 mineral claim blocks located in the Abitibi greenstone belt of northwestern Quebec. These new claims are situated in the direct vicinity of Amex Exploration Inc.'s Perron property and past-producing Normetal mine. These newly acquired Perron-East Gold Prospects cover prospective ground for orogenic gold and polymetallic VMS-(volcanogenic massive sulphide)-style mineralization in a region well known for its gold occurrences and historical production.
James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated, "Expanding our Perron-East property by approximately four times its original size gives Spearmint a significant footprint in this emerging gold district. Recently, Amex Exploration's shares have gone from a low of $0.58 to yesterday's high of $1.90 based on drill results at their Perron Project. Management looks forward to starting operations on our recently acquired claims and Spearmint has flow-through funds on hand to carry out a work program on this property. We are also planning to begin work programs on our Clayton Valley Lithium Property in Nevada and our newly acquired River Valley East Platinum/Palladium Prospect in Ontario. Spearmint will be extremely active in the coming months at a time when the junior mining market is seeing a rebound in investor interest."
Spearmint's Perron-East property is in proximity to the past-producing Normetal mine, from which approximately 10.1 million tonnes grading 2.24% copper, 5.41% zinc, 0.526 g/t gold and 44.45 g/t silver were extracted periodically between 1937 and 1975, with development down to a depth of approximately 2.4 kilometres (SIGEOM -- Mine Normetal). Furthermore, on February 6 and February 13, 2020 Amex Exploration Inc. announced additional significant drill results from Perron including 2.19 g/t Au over 23.6 m and 29.4 g/t Au over 8.5 m.
