ACME Lithium Completes Phase 1 Exploration Program at Bailey Lake Lithium Project in Saskatchewan, Canada

Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – October 3, 2023) – ACME Lithium Inc. (CSE: ACME) (OTCQX: ACLHF) (the “Company”, or “ACME”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a summer exploration program at its Bailey Lake pegmatite discovery area in northeastern Saskatchewan. The program consisted of 1166 line-km of helicopter-borne tri-axial gradiometer magnetics, radiometrics, and LiDAR as well as prospecting for additional drill targets which included 336 rock samples collected for geochemical analysis.

The 3-in-1 Airborne Geophysical Survey consisting of Helicopter-borne Tri-axial Gradiometer Magnetics, Radiometrics, and LiDAR was completed over a 7975 hectare area on the Bailey Lake Property consisting of 1166 line km. The purpose of the survey was to help identify regional structural trends and localized controls of pegmatite bodies along trend of the Li-mineralization identified in the 2017 surface sampling. Preliminary data from this survey was used to aid in guiding the subsequent prospecting. Final geophysical data is pending.

The geological prospecting program included 336 rock samples (including a 5% QAQC consisting of CRM’s, Coarse Blanks, and field duplicates) collected along trend of historically reported Li-bearing pegmatite samples. The samples collected from this program consisted of exposed boulder and outcrops. Mineralogical, alteration, and structural data (where possible) was also collected at these sample sites. Samples collected consisted of pegmatites / pegmatitic dykes and local country rock. All samples were submitted to SGS Canada Inc. in Lakefield, ON, for Sodium Peroxide Fusion / ICP-AES and ICP-MS analysis with a focus on Lithium, Tantalum, and Cesium.

Geologists identified two generations of pegmatite dykes in various outcrops which have not been historically sampled. The field crew made use of a handheld Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) to aid in the identification of lithium bearing minerals in the field. Some samples tested with the LIBS exhibited lithium values. Geochemical lab results will be required to verify these values which are expected in Q4 2023.

Property Highlights:

  • The large claim block contains multiple indications of LCT pegmatites with anomalous lithium grades.
  • Historical reported sampling by Gem Oil includes up to 3950 ppm Li in the Bailey Lake region.
  • Historical reported sampling by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey includes results up to 3470 ppm Li at Misaw Lake region to the east of Bailey Lake.
  • Till sampling in the region by the Saskatchewan Geological Survey reported numerous sites with elevated lithium and lithium pegmatite associated elements.

Saskatchewan is a highly prospective region for critical mineral development. The Government of Saskatchewan recently announced an expansion to its existing investment and innovation incentive programs to include eligible lithium projects with the aim to become one of the best resource development jurisdictions in the world.

Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the words “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “intends,” “estimates,” “projects,” “potential” and similar expressions, or that events or conditions “will,” “would,” “may,” “could” or “should” occur and in this news release include but are not limited to the attributes of, timing for and expected benefits to be derived from exploration, drilling or development at ACME’s project properties. Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling, sampling and other technical results may also be deemed to be forward-looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a project is actually developed. ACME’s project location adjacent to or nearby lithium projects does not guarantee exploration success or that mineral resources or reserves will be defined on ACME’s properties. Exploration, development, and activities conducted by regional companies provide assistance and additional data for exploration work being completed by ACME. These forward-looking statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements, including, without limitation: risks related to fluctuations in metal prices; uncertainties related to raising sufficient financing to fund the planned work in a timely manner and on acceptable terms; changes in planned work resulting from weather, logistical, technical or other factors; the possibility that results of work will not fulfill expectations and realize the perceived potential of the Company’s properties; risk of accidents, equipment breakdowns and labour disputes or other unanticipated difficulties or interruptions; the possibility of cost overruns or unanticipated expenses in the work program; the risk of environmental contamination or damage resulting from the Company’s operations and other risks and uncertainties.
