Lodestar Announces Completion of Recent Sampling Program at Flagship Peny ProjectSeptember 26, 2023
- A total of 395 samples were collected during the 2-week field program.
- Numerous pegmatite bodies were identified.
- Preliminary XRF Results used to vector potentially lithium-bearing mineralized pegmatite bodies.
- Laboratory assays are pending from the sampling program.
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – September 26, 2023 – Lodestar Battery Metals (“Lodestar” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: LSTR, OTCQB: SVTNF), focused on becoming a leading critical metals exploration company, is pleased to announce initial results from a prospecting and rock chip sampling program at its 100% owned Peny Property (“Peny” or the “Property”).
2023 Summer Work Program Summary
Lodestar has completed an extensive rock chip sampling program on the Property, with team efforts leading to the collection of 395 samples (402 including QAQC) across the Property. After ground truthing, targets generated from the spectral and geophysical analysis confirm extensive pegmatite occurrences throughout the property not previously reported (Figure 1). More information pertaining to Lodestar’s 2023 exploration initiatives can be found in the prior August 21, 2023, and September 11, 2023 news releases here and here.
Portable XRF (“pXRF”) analysis was utilized in conjunction with the field program to provide initial potassium/rubidium (K/Rb) ratios, which is a proxy pathfinder method in vectoring for lithium mineralized pegmatite dykes on the Property. This was a useful tool in vectoring and follow-up work while still in the field. The samples are to be submitted to SGS for laboratory analysis and will be announced as soon as received by Lodestar.
“We are thrilled with our preliminary sampling results on our Peny Project,” said Lowell Kamin, Lodestar’s CEO, President and Chairman of the Board. “The number of samples collected not only demonstrates our team’s hard work and dedication but also puts us in a strong position to continue our lithium exploration and development efforts. Our team is eagerly awaiting the assays from this initial program and is looking forward to carrying out the next phase of our exploration program on our 100% owned Peny Project.”
