Infinity Stone Discovers Lithium at Buda Pegmatite Project

Highlights

  • Infinity Stone has recovered grab samples assaying up to 367 ppm Li, 2,090 ppm Rb, and 4,200ppm Be, and channel samples up to 1,408 ppm Rb over 4 metres.

  • Significantly elevated levels of pathfinder elements, alongside anomalous Li values, suggest mineralized LCT pegmatite worthy of further exploration.

  • Company has received drill permits for the Buda Project and intends to commence the Winter Drill Program imminently with a team already mobilised in the region on the Rockstone Graphite Project.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - November 16, 2022) - Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE: GEMS) (OTCQB: GEMSF) (FSE: B2I) (the "Company" or "Infinity Stone"), is pleased to announce that it has discovered economically-encouraging rubidium, beryllium, and lithium mineralization in Fall 2022 surface and channel sampling of its Buda Lithium Project ("Buda Project").

A total of 32 grab samples and 23 channel samples were collected from the property and sent for multi-element analysis. Initial grab and channel samples of weathered pegmatite outcrop exposures on the Buda Project returned elevated Rb, Be, Li, Cs and Ta values.

Out of the 32 grab samples, one sample returned a lithium value of 367 ppm Li. 7 samples returned rubidium values exceeding 1,000 ppm Rb, with a high of 2,090 ppm Rb in sample E6096115, and an average of 720 ppm Rb across all 32 grab samples. Sample E6096111 returned a highly anomalous beryllium value of 4,200 ppm Be along with 1,320 ppm Rb. *

The most notable channel results were 1,408 ppm Rb over 4 metres in channel BD-02-02 and 1,283ppm Rb over 4 metres in BD-03-01. Channel sample highlights are shown below:

* Cautionary Note: Grab samples are selective in nature and mineralization and grades are not necessarily reflective of the mineralization hosted by the property.

The Buda Pegmatite is classified as a rare metal LCT pegmatite, which are characteristically enriched in lithium, cesium, tantalum, beryllium, rubidium, niobium, and tin. At least six other pegmatite dikes are present on the property. Present sampling follows local strike orientation of the pegmatite dike swarm, as indicated by structural rock fabric measurements.

The Company has received exploration permits from the Ontario Ministry of Mines and intends to commence a diamond drill program immediately ("Winter Drill Program") to test pegmatite layers perpendicular to outcrop zones. The Company anticipates having pre-drill surveying of roads, trails and pads completed by November 30, 2022, with mobilisation of drill equipment following immediately thereafter.

"We are very happy with the initial results from the Buda Project returning all the pathfinder indications of a mineralized LCT pegmatite. With our drilling team already mobilised in the region at the Rockstone Graphite Project, we are looking to commence our Winter Drill Program immediately, providing further catalyst for short-term growth," said Zayn Kalyan, CEO of Infinity Stone. "The proximity of the Rockstone Graphite and Buda Lithium Projects to infrastructure in Thunder Bay, as well as to each other, presents a strategic opportunity for the development of a diversified battery metal producer in a region that is becoming integral to the North American EV and battery metal supply chain," furthered Mr. Kalyan.

About the Buda Pegmatite Property

The Buda Pegmatite Property is located 50 kilometres west of the City of Thunder Bay, Ontario, along Highway 17/11. Access to the property is excellent, via Highway 17/11 which traverses the western edge of the property, and a network of bush roads which provide access throughout the interior of the property. The property consists of a single block of 68 cells covering 1,451 hectares (3,585 acres).

The last significant program on the property was conducted in the early 1980s by Steep Rock Iron Mines, which was exploring for feldspar. According to documentation by Steep Rock, Buda Station area hosts a "significantly large pegmatite dike worthy of economic consideration." Seven pegmatite dikes were mapped on the property, the largest being Steep Rock Dike.

In 2009, three grab samples were extracted from exposed pegmatite near Buda Station. One of the specimens returned 210 ppm lithium and two of the samples returned elevated niobium (102 ppm and 143 ppm) and rubidium (764 ppm and 1,080 ppm). Cesium and tantalum values were also found to be moderately elevated. *
