VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tearlach Resources Limited (TSXV: TEA) (OTC: TELHF) (FRANKFURT: V44) (“Tearlach” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has engaged TonaTec Exploration LLC, of Elko Nevada, to conduct the Phase 1 core drill program commencing this month at the Company’s Joint Ventured Gabriel Project formerly the Blackrock Silver (TSXV: BRC) Tonopah North Lithium Project in Nevada.
- Planned Phase 1 drill program of a 3000-meter core drill program.
- Re-drill several past holes with Core drilling to perform concurrent metallurgical testing and understand geological constraints.
- 19-hole program down to a maximum depth of 200 Meters.
- Permits with BLM submitted with expected mobilization in February.
TonaTec is recognized by the exploration community as a leading drill company with experience operating in the Tonopah area. A collaborative relationship with Blackrock Silver has created operational, and contractor synergies for both companies that management believes represents a unique advantage.
CEO Morgan Lekstrom commented, “From signing the initial Joint Venture and engaging a world-class team of geologists with significant clay lithium experience to permitting and anticipated drilling to commence all within two months, this shows the commitment the entire team has to advance The Gabriel Project. We plan to expand on the original discovery in what is becoming a leading lithium district with American Lithium and American Battery Metals Corp, which are companies with significant market caps and our neighbors. Both companies have seen significant shareholder value creation, and we believe we can come out as a leader in the area through our accelerated programs, geological team, as well as a unique engineering approach.”
