Boca Raton, Florida–(Newsfile Corp. – July 10, 2023) – Atlas Lithium Corporation (NASDAQ: ATLX) ("Atlas Lithium" or "Company"), a leading mineral exploration company, is pleased to announce some important geochemical results from the Company's ongoing exploration campaign at its Neves Project, a cluster of four mineral rights with an aggregate area of 2,684 hectares in Brazil's Lithium Valley, a proven mining district for lithium. In total, Atlas Lithium controls approximately 24,233 hectares of mineral rights in Lithium Valley.
As part of the Company's campaign, drill hole DHAB-145EX yielded an intersect with 3.34% average Li2O mineralization over 7 meters, and drill hole DHAB-160 produced an intersect with 1.82% average Li2O over 25 meters. These drills holes are separated by 880 meters and provide further evidence of high-grade lithium mineralization. The primary lithium-containing mineral identified at the Neves Project is spodumene.
Volodymyr Myadzel, PhD, the Company's Senior Vice President of Geology, commented, "Our exploration program continues to provide rewarding results such as the ones announced today. It is important to note that drill hole DHAB-160 is located within a promising new frontier, 650 meters away from the southern boundary of our currently demarcated Anitta pegmatite trend."
The Company's exploration program is supervised by a Qualified Person as defined by Subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("Regulation S-K 1300"). Atlas Lithium has engaged SGS Canada Inc., a well-known and independent third-party, and, in particular, their geologist Marc-Antoine Laporte, a Qualified Person under Regulation S-K 1300, to produce its initial mineral resource estimate report under Regulation SK-1300 for the Company's Neves Project. Mr. Laporte has worked on lithium properties in Brazil's Lithium Valley since 2017.
