Vancouver, British Columbia, August 10, 2023: Rock Edge Resources Ltd. (the “Company” or “Rock Edge”) (CSE: REDG) is pleased to announce the following update on its initial drill program focused along strike of Dyke #1 (discovery outcrop). at the Superb Lake Property, situated in northwestern Ontario. Rock Edge has an option to earn a 70% interest in the Superb Lake lithium project from Medaro Mining Corp.
The Ombabika Group Inc. (100% First Nations owned) has been contracted to drill 4 holes along strike of Dyke #1. The company plans to test the orientation and thickness of the dyke. Due to slight alteration and deformation of the dyke, seen in the 2022 exploration program, it is difficult to estimate the true strike and dip on the surface. The 4 holes will provide the company with enough detail to develop a 3D orientation of the dyke and any parallel zones. This will be used to develop a full-scale drill program and provide compliant intersections of lithium mineralization, capturing both contacts, which was not achieved in 2022. Due to permitting constraints, the contractor is using a lightweight ATV portable JKS-15 drill to produce IAW-size core 26mm. The drill size and core size have allowed the company to conduct exploration and the first-ever drill holes targeting lithium on the project, which has seen diamond drilling for gold, copper, and zinc since 1959.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control
All intersections reported are based on drilled widths and have not been converted to the true width. The drill core is being logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw at Pleson Geoscience core shack located in Nipigon, ON. The samples will be bagged and tagged using best practices and will be delivered to an independent Canadian certified laboratory for sample preparation and analysis for lithium and other elements of interest.
