Liberty Star Contracts for Core Drilling at Gold Prospect Red Rock Canyon and Copper Hay Mountain Project, SE Arizona

TUCSON, AZ, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Star Minerals (Liberty Star or the Company) (OTCMarkets: LBSR) announces that it has engaged NISS Drilling Services to undertake diamond core drilling at Liberty Star’s Red Rock Canyon Gold Project (RRC) within the larger Hay Mountain Project (HMP) in southeast Arizona. Drilling is also planned at HMP Target 1 near the RRC. While the emphasis at Red Rock Canyon is gold exploration, both project areas may possess commercially important metals including rare earth minerals which are associated with porphyry copper-gold-moly bodies, and are well represented in the area from central Arizona to northern Mexico.

The planned program consists of diamond core drilling of about 250 feet per hole within the RRC at or near historic drill sites previously drilled and logged for the presence of gold. Deeper drilling is planned for a geophysically promising area within the adjacent Hay Mountain Target 1 area. The Hay Mountain Project has undergone substantial geoscientific investigation including airborne aeromagnetic imaging (ZTEM), 3-D modeling, and numerous geochemical studies.

While the precise number of drill pads is to be determined, the Company expects drilling should commence in the next couple of months.

“We’ve talked about drilling for years,” said Pete O’Heeron, Board Chair of Liberty Star. “Engaging a world class drilling service for our first test of our gold and copper properties is an important milestone for Liberty Star. We’ve done the necessary geoscientific studies and now it is time to see the proof of the area’s potential through core analysis.”

About Liberty Star Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (LBSR: OTCQB), d/b/a Liberty Star Minerals, is an Arizona-based mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in Arizona and the southwest USA. Currently the company controls properties which are located over what management considers some of North America’s richest mineralized regions for copper, gold, silver, molybdenum (moly), and associated metals. The Company’s premiere property is the Hay Mountain Project (exploration stage) for porphyry copper, gold, moly and other commercially important minerals. Specific targets have been selected to explore for near surface and deep-seated ore bodies, of which there are numerous analogs nearby. Contiguous with the primary Hay Mountain porphyry exploration target, and part of the overall Hay Mountain Project, is an increasingly attractive area of exploration stage gold mineralization denominated Red Rock Canyon. Red Rock Canyon exhibits what we believe are extensive, promising hydrothermal associated gold-bearing structures that are documented in historical public and Company records (see associated press and social media releases for more information). The Hay Mountain Project is in Cochise County (southeast) Arizona, USA.
