Vancouver, British Columbia – April 6, 2021 – OrganiMax Nutrient Corp. (“OrganiMax” or “the Company”) (TSX-V: KMAX / FSE: L3U / OTC: BNJRF) is pleased to welcome Darrell Podowski to the Board of Directors of the Company.
Darrell Podowski has over 28 years of international experience in the mining industry and is highly regarded as one of the top mining lawyers globally. Darrell was previously in-house corporate counsel to Teck Resources Limited, and is currently one of the key M&A lawyers for Antofagasta Minerals SA and Freeport-McMoRan Inc. for each of their respective worldwide project acquisitions and exploration projects. He currently is a partner with the national law firm Cassels Brock & Blackwell LLP, and previous to that, he was a lawyer at a number of other major law firms, including one off-shore. Darrell has acted for numerous junior, mid level and senior mining companies during his legal career. Prior to his legal career, he was an oil and gas exploration geophysicist with Amoco Canada Petroleum Company.
Brandon Rook, CEO commented, “We are extremely pleased to have Darrell join the company at its infancy of growth. Darrell will assist and advise significantly as the Company looks to build out its Silver Valley, Idaho footprint from the company’s well positioned, and highly prospective brownfield exploration project located next to Bunker Hill Mine on one side and the Page Mine on the other.”
Lastly, Organimax has granted an aggregate of 300,000 share purchase options with an exercise price of 25 cents per share and a term of five years. The new grant is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
About OrganiMax Nutrient Corporation:
Silver Valley, Idaho Project:
Key investment highlights of the project include:
- The Government Gulch Silver project comprise 403 acres of patented lode claims; 5 historic mines and highly prospective unexplored areas.
- No Federal permitting required; permitting with the State of Idaho is straightforward with patented claims.
- Modern systematic exploration and drilling has never been applied to the project.
- Two major mines (Bunker Hill and Page) located adjacent and contiguous to the project at both the west and east boundaries historically mined into the Government Gulch project area.
- The Page Mine sourced ore grade mill feed from Government Gulch for 21 years but never mined deeper than 1200 feet below elevation; significantly, the Page Mine was developed to the 3400-foot level.
- The other 4 mines at Government Gulch produced ore from near surface to 200 feet below surface.
- All previously mined areas remain open at depth and along strike – the geology of the Silver Valley is known for vein structures trending deeply if not cut-off by faulting (the adjacent Bunker Hill mined to 5,800 feet below surface and Hecla’s Lucky Friday Mine is mining today 10,000+ feet below surface).
- No pre-existing royalties.
- A 100-year detailed map folio from Government Gulch, the Page Mine and Bunker Hill Mine will be incorporated into a 3-D geological model that will add significant value to future exploration and development of the project.
Despite the project being located between two prolific past producing mining properties, the project has remained unavailable for exploration and development over the past 80 years due to claim boundary issues between Bunker Hill Mining and ASARCO (Page mine), as well as the subsequent transfer of the property to the EPA and the closure of the area for mining in the late 1970’s.
Lithium-Sulphate of Potash (SOP) project in Mexico:
OrganiMax Nutrient Corp has a 100%-owned lithium and potassium bearing salar complex of mineral concessions in the Central Mexican Plateau located in the states of Zacatecas, and San Luis Potosi. Regional geophysical work has indicated that the depths of the salar basins may be much greater than previously thought, making the salars highly prospective for large brine aquifers to be discovered at depth. The Company is targeting Sulfate of Potash (SOP) and Lithium Carbonate (LCE) and boron for both the domestic and international markets.
The Company has announced a maiden sediment mineral resource estimate (MRE) of both lithium and potassium at its three salars. Highlights include:
- 120 million tonnes (Mt) of Inferred Mineral Resources grading 4.6% potassium (K) and 380 ppm lithium (Li);
- A continuous high-lithium portion of La Salada salar containing 7 Mt grading 1,490 ppm Li
- A contained 12.3 million tonnes (Mt) of Sulfate of Potash (SOP) and 243,000 tonnes of lithium carbonate equivalent (LCE);
- Sampling is restricted to 5 metre depths in most areas therefore there is good exploration potential to increase the Mineral Resource at depth and also extending the sampling to the edge of the salar basins where sampling has not taken place;
- Geophysical surveys completed suggest there is potential for additional similar layers of potassium or lithium enriched material to be found under the current pitting/drilling.
- Recent regional geophysical work has indicated that the depths of the salar basins may be much greater than previously thought, making the salars highly prospective for large brine aquifers to be discovered at depth.
On behalf of the board of directors of OrganiMax Nutrient Corp.,
