KELOWNA, BC / ACCESSWIRE / December 7, 2018 / Enertopia Corporation (ENRT) on the OTCQB and (TOP) on the CSE (the "Company" or "Enertopia") is pleased to announce the drill team has been mobilized to the Company's Lithium project at Clayton Valley, NV. The diamond drill rig will be running 24 hours a day until the planned 5-hole program is completed likely before the holiday season. The diamond drill program is to consist of 5 diamond drill holes totaling approximately 1,500 to 2,000 feet. Four drill holes will allow the Company to provide an inaugural 43-101 project-wide lithium resource in due course.
A fifth diamond drill hole drilled to an estimated depth of ~350 feet with the recovered lithium enriched material being used for metallurgical and pH solution testing. The Company will undertake systematic and through solution testing of the drilled lithium enriched horizons. This will enable the Company to map the subsurface horizons as per oxide and reduced horizons and further differentiate the grade of Lithium in solution that can be potentially recovered in a low CAPEX and low-cost extraction methods. The Company continues to move forward with respect to recovering lithium from its synthetic brine solution testing program.
''We look forward to providing drilling program updates via skype if possible, dependant on the internet connection as drilling progresses and as further project developments are reached news will be released in a timely manner.'' Stated President and CEO Robert McAllister
