RETRANSMISSION: Spearmint Hits Claystone in Every Drill Hole on Its Now Completed 10-Hole Drill Program on the Clayton Valley Lithium Clay Project in Nevada
Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 25, 2020) - Spearmint Resources Inc. (CSE: SPMT) (OTC Pink: SPMTF) (FSE: A2AHL5) (the "Company") wishes to announce that the Company has now completed a major 10-hole drill program that encountered the targeted potential lithium hosting claystone (see figure 1) in every drill hole. Samples from all 10 drill holes have now been submitted for assaying with the first three holes submitted on a rush basis. The Company expects to receive the initial results back in the coming 1-3 weeks. The second to last hole drilled, #13, encountered a substantial, approximate 260 feet of continuous targeted clay starting at 5 feet from the surface. Management was not expecting hole #13 to encounter such a significant amount of continuous clay from so close to the surface.

James Nelson, President of Spearmint, stated, "We are extremely pleased to announce the completion of our 2020 10-hole drill program on the Clayton Valley Lithium Clay Project in Nevada. We are very encouraged to have hit substantial intercepts of the targeted and potentially lithium hosting claystone in all 10 drill holes and at proximity so close to the surface. This is the most ambitious drill program that Spearmint has ever undertaken and we are very optimistic about what the results could yield. This drill program should enable Spearmint to start to establish a resource estimate for this project. We look forward to seeing two waves of drill results from this project, starting with results from the first 3 completed drill holes that were sent for assaying on a rush basis. We feel that battery metals will have a strong resurgence in 2021 especially in light of the explosive growth of the EV sector globally in 2020. Ever since the comments Elon Musk made about Tesla's intention to enter the lithium mining business in Nevada (on Tesla's battery day September 22, 2020) there has been a spotlight on the few known lithium deposits within the State of Nevada. Spearmint expects to be the first lithium explorer to have drill results out in this exciting known lithium district since Mr. Musk made those comments. Not only has Spearmint just successfully completed a lithium drill program in Nevada, but we also recently announced the discovery of positive gold indictors from our Goose Gold project in Newfoundland, directly bordering and closest to the discovery by New Found Gold (announced on November 12, 2020). Spearmint is also currently underway with a work program in Quebec on its Perron-East Gold Project. Clearly Spearmint is one of the most active junior mining companies in the market right now."
