Map Image of Arbor Metals’ Jarnet Lithium Project
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arbor Metals Corp. (“Arbor” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ABR, FWB: 432) announces that according to Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s (“PMET”) recent press release (May 1st, 2023), the CV5 Pegmatite’s western extension has expanded by 550 metres. Consequently, Arbor’s Jarnet South Block is now situated less than 1.7 kilometres North-Northwest from the CV-5 western expansion. The Jarnet South Block is included in the ongoing long-wave infrared survey (“LWIR”) and interpretation of high-resolution satellite images, executed by DIRT Exploration of Cape Town, South Africa.
Employing proprietary processing of satellite data, the LWIR analysis can map or pinpoint mineral distribution across large vegetated areas and shallow cover through reflectance spectroscopy against known standards. The ground-penetrating capability of long-wave infrared radiation enables the observation of mineral spectra at shallow depths. The LWIR and satellite image evaluation will integrate data and recognized pegmatite occurrences from the Company’s 2022 reconnaissance-scale field program. The survey is being conducted across the entire Jarnet lithium claim blocks, encompassing 70 map-designated claims and covering around 3,759 hectares.
Arbor Metals is in the process of developing its 2023 exploration program, taking into account the Company’s previous exploration findings, ongoing satellite imagery, and publicly accessible results from PMET’s activities and other entities in the region, as part of this emerging high-profile lithium district. The Company will share more information about its 2023 work program as it becomes available.
Note: The Company advises that discoveries and observations on nearby properties do not necessarily imply the existence of similar mineralization or geological features on the company’s properties.
