Global Battery to Commence Ground Gravity and Ground Magnetics Surveys
May 5, 2021
Vancouver, British Columbia, May 5, 2021 – Global Battery Metals Ltd. (TSX-V: GBML, Frankfurt: REZ, OTCQB: REZZF) (the “Company” or “GBML”) is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract to initiate ground gravity and ground magnetics data collection at its Lithium King Property in Utah. Quantec Geoscience Ltd., a Canadian company based in Toronto, has been engaged to complete the work. Crews are expected in the field this week, with the work expected to take approximately two weeks.
Michael Murphy, President and CEO, commented: “We are very excited to begin work on our 7,900 acre Lithium King Property in Utah. The results from this program will help shape a drill program slated to begin this summer and targeting lithium brines within the Pilot Valley Basin. With lithium prices continuing to increase as a result of a continued push for a greener economy, GBML is well positioned to benefit from our portfolio of battery metals projects.”
The surveys will be conducted on three northwest-southeast lines across the property area plus a further northwest-southeast line at the basement margin of the Pilot Valley Basin. The objective of the program is to image the depth to basement and location of possible faults in the vicinity of the property.
The interpretation from the gravity and magnetics data will help the Company plan the initial exploratory drill hole with the objective to evaluate the potential for lithium bearing brines in the Pilot Valley Basin. GBML is in discussions with drilling contractors and is aiming to commence drilling this summer in July 2021.
