Caprock Files NI 43-101 Technical Report and Strategically Adds to Its Claims Inventory at Ackley

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – October 4, 2023) – Caprock Mining Corp. (CSE: CAPR) (“Caprock” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has filed on SEDAR+ the National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) Technical Report (the “Technical Report“) for its recently optioned Ackley Lithium-Tin-Molybdenum-REEs property (“Ackley“, or the “Property“) located in south-eastern Newfoundland. The Technical Report, which was prepared by ERM Consultants Canada Ltd. (“ERM“), has an effective date of May 31, 2023.

Caprock’s CEO Mr. Vishal Gupta states: “This Technical Report designates Ackley as a ‘Property of Merit’ and underpins our commitment to aggressively advance the Property through systematic exploration. The tenor and extent of mineralization that has already been discovered at Ackley has prompted management to make this Property our main focus for the foreseeable future.”

Mr. Gupta goes on to add, “In addition to the ‘Deer Pond’ area where previously released assay results demonstrated high-grade lithium-bearing zinnwaldite mineralization, our exploration team has identified extensive zinnwaldite mineralization in other parts of the easternmost claim block (the “Main Claim Block“) at Ackley. In order to safeguard Caprock’s interests and encapsulate the perceived mineralized trend within the Company’s control, Caprock has staked a series of strategically important claims contiguous with the northwestern portion of the Main Claim Block.”

The newly acquired claims are highlighted in Figure 1 below.

About the Ackley Property

Ackley comprises three claim blocks that collectively span an area of 4,550 hectares and located less than a two hour drive from St. John’s, NL. The claim blocks overlie portions of the contact zone of a large Devonian-aged granite complex with Proterozoic metasediments and volcanics, parts of which are “greisened”, or hydrothermally altered, and is similar in age and lithology to the Mount Pleasant deposit in New Brunswick and the East Kemptville deposit in Nova Scotia. Limited historical exploration work across the Main Claim Block by companies including Esso Minerals, American Zinc, Inco, and others discovered occurrences and anomalies of lithium, tin, molybdenum, tungsten, and REEs.

Recent magnetometer survey work over part of the Main Claim Block indicates that the altered contact zone may be extensive, covering several square kilometres. Recent limited prospect sampling and historical Esso trenches across the Main claim block returned assays of up to 0.91% lithium oxide, 5.0% molybdenum, 0.67% tin and 1-5% fluorine on surface. Newfoundland government survey maps of this region report some of the highest lake sediment values for REEs on the entire island.
