- High-resolution aeromagnetic and radiometric surveys completed.
- 1,317.0-line km of aeromagnetic and radiometric at Daly Lake
- 820.5-line km of aeromagnetic and radiometric at Duddridge Lake
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – December 19, 2023, Searchlight Resources Inc. (“Searchlight)” or the “Company”) (TSXV: SCLT) (US: OTCQB: SCLTF) is pleased to announce the completion of high-resolution aeromagnetic and radiometric surveys on the Duddridge Lake and Daly Lake projects in Saskatchewan.
In October 2023 Special Projects Inc (“SPI”) of Calgary completed 2,137.5-line kilometres of high-resolution aeromagnetic and radiometric surveys on the Duddridge Lake and Daly Lake projects. SPI is the same contractor that completed surveys for Searchlight in 2021 on the Kulyk Lake project resulting in the Hot Ridge Rare Earth, and Whaleback Uranium discoveries.
SPI completed 1,317.0-line km of surveys on the Daly Lake exploration area which adjoins the Kulyk Lake claims to the south and hosts multiple Rare Earth Element (“REE”), thorium and uranium occurrences. The main Daly Lake targets are approximately 20 km south of the main Kulyk Lake targets. The Daly Lake area has multiple REE occurrences with over 1% Total Rare Earth Elements (TREE), including Sample 99766 with 30,769 ppm (3.08%) TREE and Sample 99812 with 29,466 ppm (2.95 %) TREE. Data from Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index file #5184. The Kulyk Lake and Daly Lake claims cover a combined area of 395.5 square kilometres, and host 54 known REE, thorium, and uranium occurrences along a 30-km long zone.
SPI also completed 820.5-line km of aeromagnetic and radiometric surveys at Duddridge Lake enlarging the successful 2021 survey. Results will be released in early 2024.
“The high-resolution radiometric survey technique has proven valuable in pinpointing Rare Earths and Uranium showings in our initial survey, and we are therefore expanding coverage to Daly Lake property and Duddridge Lake. We anticipate final survey results in the next thirty days.” Said Stephen Wallace, Searchlight CEO.
