Canter Resources Commences 10-hole Drill Program at the Columbus Lithium-Boron Project in Nevada

April 23, 2024

Vancouver, British Columbia, April 23, 2024Canter Resources Corp. (CSE:CRC | OTC:CNRCF | FRA:601) (“Canter” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that the Company has commenced a 10-hole Geoprobe drill program at the Columbus Lithium-Boron Project (“Columbus” or the “Project”), located near Tonopah, Nevada.

Drilling will focus on a substantial sub-surface 5 by 10-kilometre (<1 ohm-metre) brine target identified by the interpretation of significant geophysical data and 3D modeling. The low-impact and low-cost Geoprobe drilling, ideal for near-surface analysis, has been designed to collect both sediment and water samples from surface to depths exceeding 30 metres (“m”) (100 foot target depth). Data from this initial program is expected to provide additional stratigraphic and geochemical data that will further inform the Company’s geological model, while targeting lithium, boron and potassium concentrations from the shallowest brine generation layer within the primary target area (see Figure 1). The program is expected to take approximately 10 days to complete with Cascade Drilling LP as the selected contractor (see Image 1 and press release dated March 27, 2024).

“This is an exciting step for the Company as we have commenced our first phase of drilling at Columbus,” commented Canter CEO Joness Lang. “The Geoprobe drilling will test a shallow subset of the favourable stratigraphic units at Columbus, and we are keen to see results from this highly conductive layer of the basin in an area that has very limited geochemical results to-date.”

Geoprobe drilling is a highly effective approach to hydrologic and geological assessments using advanced drilling technology that enables precise and versatile subsurface sampling. This program offers significant advantages over traditional drilling methods for shallow subsurface testing, including faster data collection and the ability to perform a variety of sampling techniques. The Company’s primary goal of this program is to obtain a range of water samples within the upper 30 m interval; however, sediment samples will also be collected as part of the campaign.
