BELMONT RESUMES DRILLING AT KIBBY BASIN, NEVADA LITHIUM PROJECT
Vancouver, B.C. Canada, March 01, 2019 - Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible - CUSIP 080499403); ("Belmont", or the "Company").
Jim Place, CEO/President reports the following news from Kibby. “After making significant alterations to their drill equipment on location; Harris Drilling of San Diego, California has re-commenced drilling on hole KB-4. Highly unusual weather conditions in the area including snow, freezing rain, and ice earlier in February; were also a cause for the delay in restarting hole KB-4.”
Hole KB-4 has a targeted depth of 300 meters into the lakebed sediments. The hole targets a potential fault as interpreted from the geophysical survey data, which looks deep into the sub-surface layers. Geophysical and geological interpretation has indicated potential geothermal activity may have brought concentrations of dissolved minerals close to the surface. The drill hole KB-4 is in the center of the measured gravity low targeting the center of the anomaly on the interpreted fault.
Belmont expects that the drilling will proceed with no further delays.
