U.S. Lithium Retains Dr. Larry Hulbert to start work on Cobalt/ Nickel/ Copper Properties
HENDERSON, Nev., March 06, 2017 – U.S. Lithium Resources Inc. (OTCMKTS:LITH) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has retained Dr. Larry Hulbert Senior Exploration Consultant with over 45 years experience working on properties with the same metallogeny as U.S. Lithium’s Saskatchewan Cobalt/ Nickel/ Copper properties.
These properties have grades up to 3.92% Nickel, 0.70% Copper and 2.86% Cobalt as reported by the Saskatchewan government (Mineral Property # 0880).
Historical resource (non-NI43-101 compliant) estimates were generated in 1968 and 1990. The 1968 resource for the Gochagar deposit calculated 4.3 million tons grading 0.30% Ni and 0.08% Cu. J.S. Steel in 1990 reported that vertical and longitudinal sections were constructed from the existing data and an orebody with reasonably well defined limits was defined containing 1,770,000 tones at 0.735 percent nickel-equivalent.
Dr. Hulbert’s input and technical expertise will be invaluable in moving forward on the Saskatchewan properties to develop a 3-D model of the ore body and in preparation of a new 43-101 report. This will enable U.S. Lithium to accurately plan a near term drill program to prove up further resources and moving the Company a step closer to becoming a Cobalt/ Nickel/ Copper producer.
We feel that 2017 will be a break out year for cobalt prices as prices have more than doubled in the last 9 months and increased 35% in the last month alone.
Gregory Rotelli, President of U.S. Lithium, states: “We are pleased to be able to retain such a knowledgeable and respected consultant to be working directly with U.S. Lithium and our board geologist Eric Allison to move the project forward in a very professional and timely manner.”
This work will greatly benefit the Company and shareholders giving us the proper guidance and visual ability to see the 3-D size and shape of the ore body utilizing the latest modern day technology.
