PITTSBURGH, Sept. 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altair International Corp. (the “Company” or “Altair”) (OTCQB: ATAO) is pleased to announce that it has that it has received the results of our July 2021 soil sampling program conducted on the Stonewall Lithium Project in southwestern Nevada.
The sampling program was designed to verify and hopefully expand on previously identified anomalous Lithium first identified by Macarthur Minerals Ltd. in their 2017 widely spaced soil sampling program. The Altair sampling program was conducted on a grid pattern which effectively covered the Stonewall claim groups by Range Front Mining Services of Elko, Nevada who maintained proper QA/QC procedures and chain of custody for delivery of the samples to ALS Global labs in Reno, Nevada for preparation and analysis.
The sampling program returned 137 sediment samples collected from depths of approximately 1 ft. (~ 30 cm) with grades ranging from 20.8 to 172.5 ppm Li. Field duplicates were taken and results confirmed laboratory accuracy. A good portion of two of the three claim blocks comprising the Stonewall project returned anomalous to highly anomalous Lithium values.
All samples were analyzed by ALS Laboratory Method ME–MS 41, which is a trace-level analysis using Inductively Coupled Plasma–Mass Spectrometry (ICP–MS) method, with an Aqua Regia digestion. Standards and blanks were run by the lab for Quality Assurance.
The Stonewall Lithium Project is comprised of three areas totalling 63 unpatented placer mining strategically located within Lida valley which is just southeast to Clayton Valley, the only Lithium producer in Nevada. The company finds it extremely significant that we are finding highly anomalous Lithium within shallow samples on the large valley next to Clayton and intends to further test for other similar geologic characteristics of the two valleys.
The completed geochemical program represents a part of Altair's exclusive earn-in agreement with American Lithium Minerals, Inc. whereby Altair holds the right to earn in up to a Sixty Percent (60%) interest in the Stonewall Lithium Project in southwestern Nevada and the Kingman Rare Earth Project in northwestern Arizona.
Technical data pertaining to this new release was reviewed and approved by Craig Alford, MSc, a Professional Geoscientist, acting as Altair’s Qualified Person.
