AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / November 1, 2023 / Xtra Energy Corp. (OTC Pink:XTPT) is pleased to share the XRF results for mineralization intercepted from two individual ore samples obtained by our exploration team during their last visit inside the upper adit of the Lofthouse Antimony Mine ( see 8/2/2023 Press Release ).

The Lofthouse Antimony Mine as described by Lawrence, Edmond, in "Antimony Deposits of Nevada"; nbmg bull. 61 " 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."

*Note: The XRF data is taken as point values and will not represent the true grade of the samples assayed. The elemental data is highly dependent on the location of which the beam intersects the rock. The device used to take the data points is a SciAps X-505 handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer and produces a beam designed to achieve laboratory-quality results in the field and provides rapid and accurate elemental analysis and testing.

Mac J. Shahsavar, a professional engineer and the Chairman of Xtra Energy, expressed his satisfaction with the ongoing presence of high-grade antimony findings in the Lofthouse area. "In both examinations, we effectively intercepted antimony of superior quality and sustained rhodium of elevated quality, which aligns with the findings reported in the Arrance Antimony Results ( link to the relevant news source ). Notably, these interceptions occurred at a distance of more than 5 miles from the Arrance Antimony Prospect ( refer to the accompanying map below ). Based on the evidence gathered, our exploratory team believes that the extent of this high-grade mineralization spans a considerable distance, measuring several miles."
