BELMONT’S DRILLING CONTRACTOR MOBILIZES TO KIBBY BASIN
Vancouver, B.C. Canada, November 22, 2018 - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible - CUSIP 080499403); ("Belmont", or the "Company").
Kibby Basin – Drilling to Commence
Harris Exploration Drilling and Associates owner, Pat Harris, has advised Belmont that they are ready to begin mobilizing drilling equipment to the Kibby Basin and drilling is expected to commence after the Thanksgiving holiday. Hole KB-4 targets a prominent structure within the large MT anomaly defined from the Quantec’s MT survey completed in February, 2018. The site is located approximately 2300 metres northeast of hole KB-3, drilled in August. See drill hole map which outlines Holes KB-1 to 4 and other proposed hole locations; http://www.belmontresources.com/maps-kibby%20basin.html
Harris will be using a RD-10 rotary drill and estimates that KB-4 will take approximately one week to reach the proposed initial depth of 1200 feet, after which down-hole geophysical surveying will be carried out. After the results of the geophysical survey are analyzed, the most favorable layers for lithium brine will be identified for sampling and testing of formation waters, possibly followed by deeper drilling. Specialized casing and equipment will be used in the drill hole to allow the best and most representative samples to be obtained.
Sediment samples will also be taken by Belmont’s on-site geologist during drilling and these samples will be logged and prepared for assay in the same manner as for previous drill holes.

About Belmont Resources Inc.
On March 30, 2016; the Company acquired sixteen placer (16) mining claims, representing 1036 hectares (2,560 acres) in Esmeralda County, Nevada, U.S.A. The Kibby Basin property is located 65 km north of Clayton Valley, Nevada-U.S.A. The Company believes the property to be highly prospective to host lithium. Subsequent ground geophysics & gravity surveys, surface sampling and a two hole- 2046 ft. diamond drill program have confirmed the presence of lithium on Kibby.
In June 2018; the Company has updated its land position staking, and now holds 126 x 20 acre additional placer mineral claims totaling approx. 1,020 hectares ( 2,520 acres) , adjoining the Kibby 16, for a total Kibby Basin land position (the “Property”) to 2,056 hectares (5,080 acres).
In 50/50 ownership with International Montoro Resources Inc., Belmont has acquired and is exploring joint venture opportunities for its two significant uranium properties (Crackingstone -982 ha & Orbit Lake - 11,109 ha) in the Uranium City District in Northern Saskatchewan, Canada.
