October 25, 2018 (Source) — United Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: UBM, OTC PINK: UBMCF, FWB: 0UL) (“United Battery Metals” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it plans to commence an extensive exploration program at its flagship Wray Mesa Project, located on the Colorado Plateau and situated in westernmost Colorado and eastern Utah within the vanadium-rich Uravan Mineral Belt. The project is additionally situated within the prolific La Sal Creek Mining District, a district well-known for its anomalously-high vanadium to uranium ratios. The Company intends to complete an initial exploration program designed to identify drill targets that will confirm historic findings. The initial program will include detailed geologic mapping, surface reconnaissance, and geochemical sampling. This acquired information will guide secondary drilling programs to help define the overall potential of these mineralized prospects and the best strategy to advance the property.
Apart from size of the deposits there, the other key benefit of exploring in the La Sal Creek Mining District is that the region is readily accessible and has all of the key necessities for exploration, development and mining currently in-place. This includes all key infrastructure such as mills, roads, power lines and, most importantly, people with a wealth of mining experience. Moreover, the governments of Colorado and Utah are supportive of mining. Combined with these positive factors, the Company has a depth of local experience amongst its board of directors and advisory board.
“United Battery Metals is very pleased to commence its exploration program on the Wray Mesa Project. The company conducted extensive due diligence in acquiring the project and believes there is significant potential for uranium and vanadium mineralization,” said President and CEO, Matthew Rhoades. “Further, we are taking advantage of our director, Mr. Anthony A. Kovschak’s local knowledge and expertise”.
The Company will provide further information as it becomes available and will release updates on the progress of its exploration efforts over the coming weeks.
Mr. Anthony A. Kovschak, CPG is the qualified person as defined under NI 43-101. Mr. Kovschak has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information in this news release.
