(ASX:MQR)  for the Lone Star project situated in Washington State has completed a Lone Star NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment Technical Report (the “PEA”).

The completion of a PEA is part of Marquee’s final required work commitment in order to earn an 80% interest in the Lone Star Project.

PEA Features:

  • Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) includes Indicated 9.76 Mt at 0.60% CuEq and Inferred 3.35 Mt at 0.44% CuEq, based on a 0.10% CuEq cutoff within a conceptual pit shell.
  • Life of Mine (LOM): 14 years
  • Financial Outcome: NPV: Negative US$ 123.9m and IRR: Negative 10.2%.

Please refer to for more information and a full version of the PEA.

 George Sookochoff, CEO of Belmont Resources, shared, “While the Preliminary Economic Assessment offers an initial overview of the project economics, it’s crucial to recognize its preliminary nature. The assessment serves as a roadmap for navigating the project towards a positive economic outlook and eventual production.”

“Despite the initial economic challenges outlined, the report highlights key considerations that could potentially pivot the economics towards a positive trajectory. Notably, there is the prospect of a gold deposit approximately 400m west of the Lone Star deposit within our property. Furthermore, the fact that the Lone Star deposit remains open to the east and south presents additional opportunities.”

“Our upcoming discussions with Marquee will provide insights into their strategies for advancing the Lone Star project. Following these discussions, we will promptly update our Belmont shareholders on the latest developments.”

About Belmont Resources

Belmont Resources has assembled a portfolio of highly prospective copper, gold, lithium, uranium and rare earths projects located in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Washington and Nevada States. Its holdings include:

  • Athelstan-Jackpot (A-J): 2 former gold mines. 2,000m drill program recently completed (see
  • Crackingstone Uranium-Rare Earths: Some of the highest grade Rare Earth Elements (REE’s) are being discovered in Northern Saskatchewan due to the presence of Uranium, Thorium & Pegmati Crackingstone project meets the criteria for potentially discovering a large REE’s deposit with its high grade uranium along with thorium and pegmatite. A review of 3,000m of 2008 drill data shows a 1.3km pegmatite dyke drilled but only assayed for uranium at that time. 2023 plans are to re-assay pegmatite sections for REE’s ;

  • Come By Chance (CBC): 2021 geophysics delineated potential large copper-gold porphyry;
    2022 drilling provided further vectors towards potential core of porphyry


  • The Lone Star Copper-Gold: optioned to Australian Marquee Resources ASX:MQR. MQR has spent in excess of $2.5M in drilling, completed new resource in Dec. 2022, and is currently preparing a Preliminary Economic Assessment in order to earn 80% interest.


  • The Kibby Basin Lithium project located 60 kilometers north of the lithium rich Clayton Valley Basin: Optioned 80% of the central Kibby Playa claim block to Australian Marquee Resources – MQR. MQR has spent in excess of $2.5M in drilling in 2022 for potential deep seated lithium brine. 2022 Drilling confirmed high levels of lithium-bearing sediments along with dissolved lithium in the groundwater. Mineralized intervals containing up to 924 ppm lithium with greater than 300 ppm lithium over thicknesses in excess of 450m have been identified in core samples of clay-rich playa sediments
