May 10, 2022 – Cruz Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: CRUZ) (OTC Pink: BKTPF) (FSE: A3CWU7 (“Cruz” or the “Company”) wishes to announce that it has received drill results from three holes of the phase II drill program on the 100-percent owned, 8,135 total contiguous acre ‘Solar Lithium Project’ in Nevada. Hole-3 achieved values as high as 900 parts per million Lithium (ppm Li), hole-4 achieved a high value of 790 ppm Li, and hole-5 achieved a high value of 820 ppm Li. Cruz is still awaiting further drill results from the phase II drill program, of which samples were sent for assaying on a rush basis to ALS labs in Reno. The ‘Solar Lithium Project’ directly borders American Lithium Corp.’s (LIACF – OTC, LI – TSX.v) TLC project. On May 21, 2020, American Lithium Corp. announced a maiden resource estimate, prepared by Stantec Consulting Ltd., for the TLC lithium claystone property containing 5.37 million tonnes lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE) measured & indicated with another 1.76 million tonnes LCE inferred.
The lithium-bearing claystone formation was encountered in all the holes drilled during Cruz’s first phase of drilling on the ‘Solar Lithium Project’, including values as high as 1,300 ppm/Li (announced on January 17, 2022). Cruz Management cautions that past results or discoveries on properties in proximity to Cruz may not necessarily be indicative of the presence of mineralization on the Company’s properties.
Jim Nelson, President of Cruz Battery Metals stated, “Cruz has encountered further evidence of lithium present on the Solar Lithium Project, close to the border of American Lithium Corp.’s TLC project. We are still awaiting the reaming results of the phase II drill program. The data provided by the first two phases of drilling will allow the Company to plan a larger phase III program in the second half of 2022. Cruz has a large footprint and a similar size property to our neighbor, American Lithium. Cruz’s goal is to locate and provide a new, domestically sourced, battery grade lithium deposit.”
