AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / January 30, 2023 / Xtra Energy Corp. (OTC PINK:XTPT) is pleased to announce the details of a third group of historical antimony mines claimed by Xtra Energy Corp. Xtra Energy recently completed the required filing and recording of a 495 acre, 24 lode claim expansion (10/12/2022 Company News) intent on targeting more historically documented antimony deposits. The continued mapping program proves to be successful with the confirmed ownership of three additional historically documented antimony mines on this 495 acre expansion. The "Last Hope Prospect" located at the NW corner of our American Antimony #43 lode claim, the "Spring Creek Prospect" located on the SW border of our American Antimony #49 lode claim and lastly the "Marguerite No. 1 Prospect" located at the NW corner of our American Antimony #58 lode claim. This brings Xtra Energy Corp's total to eight historically documented antimony mines under 100% claim within our "American Antimony" project. Locations can be referenced in the aerial map below.
The Last Hope Prospect as described by Lawrence, Edmond., in "Antimony Deposits of Nevada"; nbmg bull. 61 "is along the north side of Bernice Canyon 3.3 miles from the mouth of the canyon and just east and below the Marguerite No. 2 prospect. An adit cuts reddish-brown sandstone. Twenty-one feet from the portal there is a 2- to 3-inch quartz vein striking N. 60° E. and dipping 70° NW. Small pods, veinlets, and single crystals of stibnite occur in the quartz. In the 24-foot vertical winze, the vein widens to 20 inches. of quartz containing stibnite. A sample of this vein assayed 0.20 ounce of silver per ton, no. gold, and 11.50 percent antimony. One pod, 20 by 48 inches, contains approximately 35 percent antimony."
The Spring Creek Prospect as described in"Antimony Deposits of Nevada"; nbmg bull. 61 "is on the northside of Bernice Canyon, 3.8 miles from its mouth, and high on the hillside some 1,500 feet from the canyon bottom and the road. One open cut and a caved adit were found. No antimony mineralization was seen on the surface, but approximately 200 pounds of ore averaging 15 percent antimony were seen on the dump. A sample grabbed from the dump assayed 6.48 percent antimony, 0.08 ounce of gold and 0.28 ounce of silver per ton, and a trace of selenium."
The Marguerite No. 1 Prospect as described in"Antimony Deposits of Nevada"; nbmg bull. 61 "is along the south side of Bernice Canyon, 4.3 miles from the canyon mouth, some 800 feet above its floor. An open cut exposes a 14- to 18-inch vein, striking N. 5° E. and dipping 30° E. The vein is composed of 8 to 10 inches of quartz and 6 to 8 inches of gouge. Small pods up to 1 by 2 inches, blebs, and single crystals of stibnite occur in the quartz. The stibnite is almost completely altered to yellow antimony oxides. The vein, also, is exposed in an 18-foot inclined shaft. Here the vein strikes N. 20° E. and dips 30° SE. It is 10 to 14 inches wide and composed of gouge with only traces of stibnite and yellow antimony oxides."
The XTPT Chairman Mac J. Shahsavar, P. Eng. commented "With this news we successfully confirmed the addition of three more well documented antimony deposits. We continue our rapid growth with the goal of 100% Xtra Energy ownership and consolidation of all historical antimony producers that once made up the Bernice Mining District. As our portfolio of antimony-rich assets increase we will continue to prove up this portfolio until the most shareholder beneficial partner is found for large scale funding, development and supply."
