SCOTCH CREEK RECEIVES FINAL APPROVAL TO DRILL THE ‘MACALLAN EAST’ LITHIUM PROJECT
VANCOUVER, BC – February 23rd, 2022 – Scotch Creek Ventures Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: SCV) (FSE: 7S2) (OTC: SCVFF) (“Scotch Creek” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce that is has received final approval from the US Bureau of Land Management (the “BLM”) for the upcoming exploration and initial drill plan under a Notice of Intent (“NOI”) for its 100% owned Macallan East Lithium Project (“Macallan” and/or the “Project”) in Clayton Valley, Nevada.
The NOI allows for drilling and additional exploration activities on the Property. The drill program at Macallan East will focus on the highlighted lithium targets outlined in the recent geophysical work. In addition, the BLM has accepted A US$18,773 bond to cover up to 3.65 acres of permitted disturbance on Macallan’s upcoming drill program.
Scotch Creek Ventures’ CEO, Mr. David Ryan, commented “Our recent geophysical report identified multiple high priority targets and we have moved rapidly to secure the necessary NOI drill approval. We are committed to further advancing our Nevada lithium projects and commencing exploratory drilling is the next step in achieving our Company goal to become a top-tier North American lithium producer.”
The 3,180-acre Macallan East project is located on the Southeast side of the Southern Clayton Valley. The claim block sits directly on trend with outcropping, lithium mineralized, volcanic ash-rich, basin lakebed sedimentary rocks which project towards the project area from the NNE. The projected presence of these mineralized units in the subsurface at Macallan strongly suggests that porous ash units, associated with these rocks elsewhere in the basin, should exist below the surface on the claims.
Further, the Company has entered into an online marketing agreement with Marco Messina, a European communications firm, whereby they will design, create, and distribute advertising content throughout Europe with the additional assistance of Star Finance GmbH, on the Company’s behalf. The Agreements are effective starting February 23rd, 2022, and are proposed to continue for a minimum one-month term at a cost of $191,000.00.
