BELMONT RECEIVES ACCEPTANCE OF KIBBY BASIN PROPERTY AGREEMENT & NI 43-101 TECHNICAL REPORT
Vancouver, B.C. Canada, May 30, 2016 - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; OTC: BEAAF.PK) ("Belmont", or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted for filing the Property Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") to acquire a 100% interest in the Kibby Basin Property (the "Property") located 65 km north of Clayton Valley, Nevada-U.S.A. The Property has potential to host lithium-bearing brines in a geologic setting similar to the continental brine model ascribed to Clayton Valley.
Kibby Basin Property - NI 43-101 Report:
The Kibby Basin Property consists of sixteen (16) unpatented association placer mining claims, totaling approximately 1036 hectares (2,560 acres) in Esmeralda County, Nevada. The claims are 35.8 direct air miles northwest of Tonopah, Nevada. The Kibby property is located in Kibby Flat, which is the geographic name for the playa in the lowest portion, of the Monte Cristo Valley. Vehicle access is good to all portions of the Property.
Due to the regional setting, geologic research has made available extensive information on the area. Using a continental-brine lithium model based on Clayton Valley, the available data is very useful. Detailed published structural interpretation at Clayton Valley from boreholes, seismic surveys, and gravity surveys has defined a hydrogeologic setting sufficient to host the lithium resource. A basin with similar features exists at Kibby Flat.
Clayton Valley's centralized location between Las Vegas and Reno; highways; access to power, water and labour; provide excellent infrastructure for mineral exploration and development. Regional and property-wide geology reviewed for the Kibby Basin Property shows key features that are similar to the known lithium mine area at Silver Peak-Clayton Valley.
The data suggests two work phases will prudently and effectively test for the presence and quality of the four key features mentioned above. Phase one results will determine how best to execute the drilling proposed in phase two.
The phase one program consists of a regional geophysical review and a detailed gravity survey. The Company plans to immediately execute the exploration program.
