VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — United Lithium Corp. (CSE: ULTH; ULTHF; FWB: 0ULA) (“ULTH” or the “Firm”) is happy to announce it has elevated the land place of the Liberty Lithium Venture within the southern Black Hills of South Dakota close to the city of Pringle and south east of Custer by extra staking. The brand new claims are contiguous to these beforehand staked and introduced in press releases on Could 2, 2022, and September 28, 2022.
The Firm has staked greater than 200 extra unpatented lode claims masking greater than 6.5 sq. miles (practically 17 sq. kilometers) within the south a part of the Black Hills. This extends the “Liberty Lithium Venture”, and the brand new claims cowl quite a few pegmatite our bodies, most of which haven’t seen a lot exploration or manufacturing except for historic and present quarrying of potassium feldspar and mica. A reconnaissance rock chip sampling program was carried out by the Firm at the side of every of the staking applications to determine new areas for detailed area work. Samples have been submitted to the laboratory and assays are awaited.
It’s noteworthy that a number of pegmatite zones are presently being quarried for potassium feldspar and micas within the space round Custer, SD. Potassium feldspar could also be a helpful by-potential product from potential lithium pegmatite quarrying. Potassium feldspar is the selection of potters, industrial glass and whiteware producers as a result of its excessive alkali content material and low iron oxides that promote higher viscosity throughout firing and superior whiteness. Mica can be presently recovered from some pegmatites as an financial product as an essential additive in specialty drilling muds. The steadiness of the recovered pegmatite supplies, primarily quartz and albite, may additionally be recovered to be used as aggregates and street building supplies as a result of their hardness, crushed sizing, and inert environmental qualities.
A common define of the Liberty Lithium Venture claims is offered beneath (Map 1). The brand new space staked in addition to the beforehand BLM adjudicated claims cowl the general public lands administered by the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). There are non-public property holdings throughout the USFS lands and United Lithium’s claims are positioned and situated to acknowledge pre-existing titled possession rights as greatest as attainable.
Michael Dehn, CEO of United Lithium said, “We’re excited with the preliminary pattern outcomes from our BLM adjudicated claims and are awaiting pattern outcomes from the just lately staked claims south of our preliminary block southward in direction of Pringle, South Dakota. Entry and infrastructure listed below are wonderful, and we anticipate the regional scale rock sampling and assay program will help us in vectoring in direction of Li-Be-Sn-Ta enrichment zones within the LCT pegmatites.”

Reconnaissance Rock Chip Geochemical Sampling
A geological crew labored in parallel with the staking crew within the Liberty Lithium Venture space, highlighting areas for observe up detailed protection. Importantly, throughout the preliminary phases of staking and sampling, 246 rock chip geochemical characterization samples have been collected for assay throughout the primary blocks of claims. Plots of early assay outcomes offered geochemical and mineralogical vectors that led to the following staking and sampling applications. A further 226 rock chip outcrop samples from the newly claimed space and infill, affirmation rock samples have been collected as a part of the second program. We await the entire assay outcomes from these applications.
All new claims nonetheless require closing approvals from the Bureau of Land Administration.
