Sorrento Resources Completes Prospecting Program on PEG Lithium Project
Vancouver, BC - TheNewswire - September 19, 2023 - Sorrento Resources Ltd. (the “Company”) (CSE:SRS) (OCT:SRSLF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the prospecting program on the PEG Lithium Property (The “Property”) in Central Newfoundland as previously announced on August 10, 2023.
Over the course of the prospecting program, 283 grab samples were collected and four new beryl occurrences were identified (Figure 1). The goal of the program was to expand on the known Snowshoe Pond occurrence and delineate new Lithium bearing pegmatites. Crews were successful in identifying numerous new pegmatites. Assays will determine if these pegmatites are indeed lithium bearing and all samples have been submitted to AGAT laboratories for analysis. Sorrento will provide results once they are received.
“The completion of the initial prospecting program at the PEG Property was successful. We are excitedly awaiting analytical results.” Stated Brayden Sutton, CEO.
