AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 28, 2023 / Xtra Energy Corp. (OTC PINK:XTPT) is pleased to announce the successfully completed 80 acre expansion to gain full ownership rights of the historical antimony producing Lofthouse Mine. The Lofthouse is approximately 5 miles southwest of our American Antimony Project and was known to be the principal antimony property of the district alongside the Antimony King Mine. This brings our total ownership rights to nine (9) historically documented antimony mines over 1400 acres in the Bernice Mining District of Churchill County, Nevada.
As described in LAWRENCE, E.F., 1963, ANTIMONY DEPOSITS OF NEVADA; NBMG BULL. 61; "The Lofthouse mine is situated on the west flank of the Clan Alpine Mountains in Dyer Canyon, 1.4 miles from its mouth. A small amount of antimony ore reportedly was mined during World War I. In 1940, two tons of ore averaging 30 percent antimony were produced. In 1948, 40 tons of ore averaging 50 percent antimony were shipped to the Harshaw Chemical Co. in Los Angeles. The mine is developed by two adits each 100 feet long and a number of trenches. The veins are 2 to 30 inches wide; the main vein averages 10 inches in width. Both veins are composed principally of quartz with minor calcite. Pods, veinlets, and single crystals of stibnite occur in and with the quartz."
On the expansion, Xtra Energy Corp. Chairman Mac J. Shahsavar, P. Eng. commented "The Lofthouse and Antimony King were the most recognized antimony producers of the Bernice Mining District. To gain full ownership rights of one of those is a major step forward for Xtra Energy and our goals to revive the district back to its heights. From bullets to batteries the world is waking up to the vital role antimony plays in several industrial applications, making it an essential component in many manufacturing processes, and its various applications highlight its versatility and importance in modern industries going forward."
