GURNEE, IL / ACCESSWIRE / September 27, 2023 / BrightRock Gold Corp. (OTC PINK:BRGC) is pleased to report exceptional test results from their Phase 3 Pegmatite Outcrop Discovery (disclosed in our last press release: Click Here), showcasing LIBS (Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) findings of up to 21.78% Li (Lithium). Additionally, the company has released a new video tour below, providing further insight into the testing procedures taken to obtain these results.

*note all Li readings shown are surface readings and were the highest obtained LIBS result from that target area.
Our Head of Exploration, Steven Cyros, personally collected the samples from a spacing of approximately 1.5 meters to 2.5 meters. The samples were taken from a major outcrop, which is depicted here and was mentioned in greater detail in our most recent corporate news release and video (9/6/2023 news release). The testing was done in three phases using a SciApps Z-903 handheld LIBS (laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy) analyzer. The first phase was tested onsite in the field at Midnight Owl #177; the second phase was the same material tested in a controlled laboratory environment; and the third phase was the crushing and mixing of the same material. All tests and the corresponding results can be referenced in the tables below.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BRGC, Mac J. Shahsavar, P. Eng., commented on the findings by stating that, 'considering the historical context of this region (refer to 'Mine Tales'), it is plausible that we may have come across eucryptite lithium, which has been recognized as a substantial deposit in the past. Eucryptite (see Eucryptite Mineral Data) exhibits elevated lithium concentrations, reaching levels as substantial as 12% (refer to Figure 7). The provided samples will be subjected to supplementary laboratory analysis in order to validate the existence of eucryptite. BRGC will disseminate the findings upon their completion. The utilization of hyperspectral imaging technology has facilitated the identification of a substantial expanse of surface spodumene within the Midnight Owl Mine Historic Area, spanning many miles. This recent discovery has brought to light that the northern section of our project, in addition to the historic Midnight Owl area, exhibits an elevated concentration of eucryptite, hence increasing the overall lithium abundance of the entire property and project.'
Figure 7 : List of Key Lithium Bearing Minerals. Eucryptite is a lithium aluminum silicate mineral with a formula LiAlSiO4 and is a secondary alteration mineral of spodumene. The lithium content of pure eucryptite is 11.86%Li2O. Spodumene is also a lithium aluminum silicate mineral with a formula LiAlSi2O6. The theoretical lithia content of pure spodumene is 8.03% Li2O.
