(CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Case Lake South Cesium Prospect in Ontario consisting of approximately 2500 contiguous acres. These new claims are directly bordering Power Metals Corp.'s Case Lake Cesium Property located in the Larder Lake Mining Division in Northeast Ontario. This new prospect is accessible year-round with proximity to the Translimit road that connects Ontario to Quebec. In a news release from November 13, 2018, Power Metals Corp.'s announced Cesium grades as high as 14.7 per cent Cs2O (cesium oxide) over 1.0 metre in drill hole PWM-18-126 on their Case Lake Cesium Property.

Spearmint has projects that explore for each of these.
James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated "The acquisition of the Case Lake South prospect positions Spearmint in the arena of cesium which has generated a significant increase of interest recently.
