VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tearlach Resources Limited (TSXV: TEA) (OTC: TELHF) (FRANKFURT: V44) (“Tearlach” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Pakwan Extension claim block which is positioned contiguous with Frontier Lithium Inc. claim block.
Acquisition Highlights – Technical:
- The Pakwan Extension claims have two mica granite to the north, west and south within 100 – 800 metres of claim boundaries; the western two mica granite is the same one that hosts the PAK deposit
- The metasediments are the same distance (1.0-1.5 km) from the muscovite-bearing granite that hosts the PAK deposits as Frontier’s Spark and Bolt deposits
- Consists of 23 cell claims and 452 hectares.
Morgan Lekstrom, CEO of Tearlach stated, “This is another piece of the puzzle in the same geological trend as Frontiers Spark and Pak Deposits adding to our Final Frontier Project. Acquisitions like this are cost effective and give us a stronger foothold and higher chance of major discovery within Tearlach’s Final Frontier Project, north of Red Lake.”
The Pakwan Extension Property is located between Tearlach’s Pakwan Property and Margot Property and is 1.8 km south of the Pakwan Property. The Pakwan Extension Property is contiguous with Frontier’s PAK Property. All three properties are within the same North Spirit Lake greenstone belt on the Sachigo – Berens River Subprovincial boundary as Frontier Lithium Inc. Li-Cs-Ta PAK Property. The Pakwan and Pakwan Extension Properties are also within and adjacent to the same Bear Head Fault Zone as the PAK Property. All three Properties are in close proximity or contain the same two-mica granite and metasedimentary rocks as the PAK Pegmatite.
The Margot Property is hosted by a two-mica granite with accessory garnet, tourmaline, and sericite. Ontario Geological Survey identified a pegmatite outcrop on the south shore of Margot Lake (OGS, P.3603, 2008).
Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, Tearlach acquires a 100% interest in the Pakwan Extension claim block from an arm’s length third-party vendor for the cash sum of $20,650 Canadian.
