POWR Lithium Builds on Discovery with Complete Results from Phase 1 Maiden Drilling Campaign


Hole No. Halo-003-23 intersects broad Li-bearing claystone interval with 204 feet (62.2 m) of 994.4 ppm Li

VANCOUVER, BC, January 12, 2024 —POWR Lithium Corp. (CSE: POWR) (FRA: 6JX / WKN: A3D6BS) (OTCQB: PWRLF) (“POWR” or the “Company”), a mineral exploration and development company focused on American lithium deposits to support domestic demand, is pleased to provide the complete results from the four-hole, 2,899 feet (883.9-metre) maiden drilling program. The Halo project is located less than 3 kilometres northwest of Tonopah, NV and surrounded by several lithium-exploration companies with published resources or, at least, discoveries (see Figure 1).


  • Four HQ core holes have been completed and show comparable results to neighboring properties in what is likely the same geologic unit.
  • Hole No. Halo-003-23 intersected a true thickness of 62.2 meters (204 feet) at 994 ppm lithium.
  • Hole No. Halo-004-23 intersected 19.8 meters (65 feet) of 1,368 ppm lithium where the hole was lost due to bad drilling conditions. The bottom 7 meters of the holes contained 1,698 ppm Li.

CEO Matt Chatterton states, “With these very positive results, we are well positioned to prepare for a Phase 2 drilling program in 2024 once the conditions permit. With the drill permit in hand and logging facilities established in Tonopah, the task at hand is to strategically locate the next holes to initiate resource modeling”.

Hole No. From  (m) To   (m) Width (m) Width (feet) Li (ppm) Notes
Halo-001-23 57.05 95.25 38.23 125.4 938 Reported on Dec. 22, 2023*

* Initial results from Hole No. Halo-001-23 were released on December 22, 2023, https://powrlithium.com/powr-lithium-discovers-up-to-1735-ppm-lithium-in-maiden-drilling-campaign/

The inaugural work program on the Halo property consisted of four drill holes, ranging from 503.8 to 804.9 feet (153.6 – 245.4m) in depth. The results for Phase 1 are shown above in Table 1 and the hole locations are given Figure 1. The Siebert Formation, which hosts the claystone sequence, thickens to the west toward the center of the Montezuma valley. Drill Hole No. Halo-001-23, shown in Figure 1, was positioned closest to the basin’s current margin and bottomed in lithic tuff with Li values <100ppm Li. Hole Nos. Halo-002 thru -004 are located further west revealing greater sediment thickness and, hence, hole depths, i.e. to 770.8 feet (235m).

Hole No. Halo-004-23, the furthest west hole, was lost in broken ground with the bottom 7 meters containing nearly 1,700 ppm Li. This hole is located about 1.8 km east of the American Battery Technology claim block and 0.9 km south of the American Lithium claim block. Since the hole was unable to enter the lower tuff unit and exit the lithium-bearing claystone, it will need to be re-drilled in 2024.

Qualified Person

The technical data in this news release have been reviewed by Robert Johansing, M.Sc., P. Geol. (MMSA #01520QP), a qualified person under the terms of NI 43-101.

In November, the QP was on-site and became familiar with the drill sites and drilling procedures for the Halo Project and witnessed all components of the core logging and sampling procedures conducted at their core storage facility in Tonopah, NV.

All samples were retrieved by representatives of American Assay Labs (AAL) and transported to their facility in Sparks, Nev., for the 28 element, 4 acid ICP-OES (inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy) analytical package.   Both the Company and AAL have inserted standards, blanks and duplicates into the sample sequence for the reported results.

Review of the logging, sampling and security procedures, along with the QA/QC data for sample preparation and chemical analyses has not identified any issues that would impact these results.
