Vancouver, British Columbia, November 8, 2021 - Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCLT, US: CNYCF, FSE: 2CC2) has completed additional staking on the Kulyk Lake Rare Earth and Uranium projects located approximately 165 kilometres north of La Ronge, Saskatchewan, and 65 km south of the Key Lake Mine.

The Kulyk Lake claim block has been expanded from 105.4 sq km to 317.1 sq km (Map 1). This block covers 38 Rare Earth, Uranium and Thorium showings. This includes the Kulyk Lake trenching, which yielded results of 45.1% TREO and 10.08% CREO over 0.6 metres, and 24.44% TREO and 5.49% CREO over 0.7 metres. (Note: TREO = Total Rare Earth Oxides and CREO = Critical Rare Earth Oxides which is the sum of Pr6O11 + Nd2O3 + Tb4O7 + Dy2O3.)
“Searchlight has consolidated its claim position in Kulyk Lake in the wake of a significant uranium-based staking rush in Saskatchewan”, stated Stephen Wallace, CEO. “The new claims strengthen our position after the Company’s successful expansion of the Kulyk Lake REE target, and the discovery of a new Uranium Zone.”
