VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tearlach Resources Limited (TSXV: TEA) (OTC: TELHF) (FRANKFURT: V44) (“Tearlach” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the expansion of the Gabriel property by 558 acres (226 hectares). This expansion was achieved by staking 37 unpatented mining claims on public land administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
Key highlights of the expansion include:
- 37 claims covering 558 acres (226 hectares) contiguous to the original Gabriel land position.
- The favourable Siebert Formation underlies the claims.
- The highest surface rock chip sample resulted in 840 ppm lithium.
The 37 newly staked and filed claims are dominantly located in Section 22, Township 3 North and Range 42 East (Mount Diablo Base & Meridian), south of the central portion of the original Gabriel claim block (see map below). Much of the claims are within the one-mile Blackrock Silver Corp. area of interest.
These claims overlie exposures of favorable Siebert Formation, the host to Gabriel lithium mineralization. TEA geologists conducted limited surface rock geochemical sampling of the area prior to the filing of the 37 new claims, with the highest result being 840 ppm lithium.
Tearlach will conduct additional detailed mapping and sampling of the new claims to determine if drilling is warranted as part of the planned Gabriel Phase 2 program.
“Our regional mapping and sampling program has successfully identified multiple targets compromising favourable Siebert formation and elevated lithium geochemistry. The team aggressively staked and filed the Section 22 claims and thereby expanding the Gabriel land position. I am optimistic that this program will lead to further land acquisition opportunities in the greater Tonopah area,” said David C. Flint (Director of Tearlach Resources Limited).
