Vancouver, British Columbia, June 05, 2023: Rock Edge Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Rock Edge”) (CSE:REDG) is pleased to announce that the Company has concluded its 2023 field program on their Terrier property (the “Property”) located 40 km north of Nakina, Ontario. Over the last week portions of the Property has been mapped and sampled for its rare-element pegmatite hosted mineralization. The Terrier group of claims lies 15 km northeast of the Superb Lake pegmatite field where Rock Edge announced 2.47% Li2O over 3.2 m in initial channel sampling last year (see press release dated December 14, 2022).
A total of seven areas containing undocumented pegmatite dykes were discovered. The Volta Dyke (Photo 1) contains two pegmatite dykes approximately 20 m in width and traceable up to 100 m in length before plunging under overburden cover. A total of 47 one-metre channel samples were taken at the Volta. The Joule Dyke saw 10 channel samples taken ranging from 0.5 to 1.0 m in length.
Charles Desjardins, CEO of Rock Edge, states, “Following our boots on the ground success at Pag North, east of Longlac this spring, the Terrier land package has revealed some extensive pegmatite dykes that warranted abundant channel sampling. And we are in familiar territory next to our Superb Lake pegmatite field where channel sampling last year confirmed lithium-bearing mineralization. Observed mineralogy of the newly discovered pegmatite dykes at Terrier appears favourable to host rare-element mineralization. We have a total of over 200 samples at the lab, and we look forward to receiving the analytical results from our Phase 1 exploration programs.”

The Terrier land package is located along the contact of a muscovite-bearing peraluminous S-type granite in contact with metasediments. The English River-East Wabigoon subprovince boundary lies 8 km to the south (Figure 1). The proximity of a subprovincial boundary and a potential fertile parental granite provides a prime target of high merit for rare-element metasediment hosted pegmatite mineralization (Breaks et al., 2006).
