VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2021 / Infinite Ore Corp. (the "Company") (TSXV:ILI)(OTCQB:ARXRF) is pleased to announce it has completed the acquisition of four additional lithium claims in Ontario having a historic resource of 750,000 tons yielding 1.38% Li2O* which is in addition to the historical resource of 2 million tons at 1.09% Li2O* currently present on the Jackpot property (see press release announcing acquisition January 18, 2021). The new claims are contiguous to, and located within, the Company's Jackpot Property. In addition, the Company is pleased to announce that it is planning a 2,500 meter drill program on the Confederation North property within its Eastern Vision Project claim holdings located east of Red Lake Ontario. The program will test gold, copper, and silver anomalies from its recent Spaciotemporal Geochemical Hydrocarbon ("SGH") survey conducted on the Confederation North property (see Figure 1). The drill program is expected to begin in early March.
J.C. St-Amour, President of Infinite Ore commented, "The shareholders of Infinite Ore are in a somewhat unique position with exposure to two exceptional land packages in Ontario targeting gold, base metals and lithium. I am very pleased to have secured a drill and crew to begin drilling the Red Lake Eastern Vision properties. Using our soil samples as well as geophysics, our technical team has identified multiple high priority targets. Access to the property and logistics are very good and so I anticipate getting good value for our drilling dollars. I am also pleased to report that we closed our transaction to acquire more land near our Jackpot Lithium property. The Jackpot property is in a highly sought-after location given that our neighbour, Rock Tech Lithium, intends to construct a lithium processing facility in the area. More to come from us on both the Eastern Vision gold and base metals property and the Jackpot lithium project."
