BELMONT ENGAGES MAGEE GEOPHYSICS TO CONDUCT GRAVITY SURVEY ON KIBBY BASIN PROPERTY
Vancouver, B.C. Canada, June 16, 2016 - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; OTC: BEAAF.PK) ("Belmont", or the "Company") Further to our news release of June 10, 2016 which outlined the completion of the Geophysical Review, the Company has engaged Magee Geophysical Services LLC of Reno, Nevada to conduct the detailed gravity survey. The Property has potential to host lithium-bearing brines in a geologic setting similar to the continental brine model ascribed to Clayton Valley.
The detailed gravity survey is recommended to map the central basin in sufficient detail so as to permit generation of a three dimensional model of the basin fill; providing the coverage to determine basin depth and delineate the structural setting. A total of 400+ stations are planned. These include 500m square grid coverage over the central basin and property flanked to the north and south by 1000m staggered grid coverage. Further afield regional stations are required to determine the large scale trend in which the detailed coverage sits.
Magee Geophysics is mobilizing to the Kibby Basin this week. The results of the survey will help outline the optimum testing areas for a direct push (Geoprobe) drilling and sampling program.
