Blackrock Silver Corp. (BRC) has announced drill results from its scout-drilling program on the Tonopah North project located in Nevada.

Blackrock has completed ten reverse circulation drill holes in the Tonopah North project as part of a scout-drilling program to test for the margins of the Tonopah caldera system. Drillholes targeted the ring structure which plays host to silver and gold mineralization on the Tonopah West project located immediately to the south and east; key structural projections from the Tonopah West project; and lithium potential within the Siebert Tuff.

A significant zone of lithium-bearing material was intersected. Lithium values up to 852 ppm lithium within a 23-metre thick section of the Siebert Tuff was discovered.

Andrew Pollard, Blackrock Silver’s CEO and President commented on the drilling program.

“Though Tonopah is best known for the significant role it played in Nevada coming to be known as the “Silver State”, it also happens to be situated on the cusp of the most prolific lithium district in the United States, for which it is currently a hotbed of activity. In our attempt to better understand the placement and geometry of the Tonopah caldera, which is the primary structural control for the Tonopah silver district, initial scout-drilling at our Tonopah North project has encountered significant lithium mineralization in cover rocks. As we await remaining assays, we have expanded the drilling program to try and home in on higher-grade lithium zones. This discovery adds a very interesting new dynamic to the Blackrock story, with both silver and lithium poised to play pivotal roles in the emerging green economy, and we’re eager to see where additional drilling takes us.”
