Vancouver, B.C. Canada, March 1, 2018 – Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V: BEA; FSE: L3L1; DTC Eligible – CUSIP 080499403); (“Belmont”, or the “Company”)
Further to our news release of January 23, 2018 in which Belmont announced the commencing by Quantec Geoscience Limited (“Quantec”) of the Spartan AMT/MT Survey.
Belmont is pleased to announce the receipt of the Geophysical Report for Spartan Magnetotelluric (MT) Survey over the KibbyBasin property, carried out by Quantec. The survey covered most of Belmont’s Kibby Basin-Nevada claims and included the playa basin area as well as some of the adjoining higher level lands.
The MT survey and 3D inversion report clearly mapped a more conductive zone at many of thesurvey stations. This variation of the resistivity at depth is interpreted by Quantec as being a potential contact with sub-surface brine that may contain lithium.
The results of the MT survey are a critical source of information and provides a vital step that allows Belmont to select the most prospective locations and higherprobability brine aquifer targets for the next phase of drilling in 2018. Locations where the potential brine contacts are closest to the playa surface are being considered by Belmont as themost favourable targets.
The survey was completed in January, 2018 by field staff from Quantec and measured MT data at a total of 49 sites distributed along an XY grid with a site separation of 1000 metres, comprising approximately 36 square kilometers. The MT data were analyzed using 3D inversion which provides Belmont with a 3D model of the property from the surface down to 3 kilometers depth.
The results of the Quantec MT survey correlated well with information previously obtained from the gravity survey modeling (Wright Geophysics -2016). Quantec’s MT survey results clearly map a more conductive zone beginning at approximately 500m depth.
