  • Drillers are on standby and the necessary paperwork is in hand
  • Company wants to get to Hay Mountain Drill Target One ASAP

TUCSON, AZ–(June 23, 2016) – Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCBB: LBSR) (OTC PINK: LBSR) is pleased to announce that Company CEO/Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe summarized exploration activity at the Hay Mountain Project over the weekend. The “Update on the Hay Mountain Project” was originally posted on the Liberty Star website on June 18 and shared on Agoracom.com that day.

Comments Mr. Briscoe: “While nothing in the update is brand new, it summarizes what we have found using well-established practices and new technologies in mining exploration. Our methodology offers reaffirming conclusions through different practices. In other words, we started with geochem as a baseline for finding targets which was confirmed and refined through geology, geophysics (ZTEM) and surface x-ray fluorescence (XRF instrumentation). It is my hope that the update clarifies our methodologies and conclusions. To that end, included in this summary are Internet links to various data that can also be found on our web site.

From CEO James A. Briscoe: Update on the Hay Mountain Project (Published June 18, 2016)

This is an exciting time for Liberty Star. I am ready, our field manager, Jay Crawford, is ready, the drillers are on standby and the necessary paperwork is in hand. We want to get to Hay Mountain Drill Target One ASAP.

As we have stated in numerous public reports, the data from geochem, geophysics and fieldwork with x-ray fluorescence for the Hay Mountain Project has been gathered and analyzed by me and other geosciences experts. I want to summarize and explain in simple terms what we have found and have reported previously:

  1. A viable target is indicated by our multiple geoscientific studies from the air and on the ground. This has been verified by independent geoscientists and follows the Lowell-Guilbert porphyry copper model.
  2. The presence of silicification and brecciated (broken) silicified limestone with leached capping, as well as breccia pipes with fluidized rounded clasts (fragments), characteristic of all porphyry coppers, but were unknown to the area prior to our fieldwork in the fall of 2015. These outcrops are occurring in the main porphyry copper alteration zone mapped according to the geochemical and geophysical studies.
  3. As recently as October/November 2015, field work with an x-ray fluorescence instrument (Niton XL3t Goldd+ XRF Analyzer from Thermo Fisher Scientific) has found high grade pods of copper oxide (malachite) emanating from oxidized chalcopyrite (“Recent Field Work at Hay Mtn Project,” 09/24/2015), which is the normal copper sulfide mineral in porphyry copper bodies in this region over the area where previously derived geochemical highs exist. Such surface covers about two linear miles where there is outcrop.
  4. We believe this disseminated copper is actually the top of the porphyry copper mineral body as detected by geochem and geophysics — and the geophysics trace it downward to approximately 6,000 feet below the current surface. We interpret it is the low-grade upper part of our target that is outcropping.
  5. Gold — Because the Lowell-Guilbert porphyry copper model was tested and verified on numerous porphyry copper deposits throughout the world, we know the center metals of the model and our terrain under study include iron (magnetite), potassium (as potassium feldspar) gold, and moly. Other disseminated metal rings form around the center. The following must be tested to be confirmed:
    1. We see the moly, lead and gold geochem values in vegetation at the porphyry center. It is possible the gold in the center could be occurring at the surface either as submicron (Carlin-style) or finely disseminated, but not submicron.
    2. Thus, gold could be minable at and/or near the surface and processed by heap leaching or other standard processes.

Because this is a hypothesis, it needs to be tested by drilling and sampling. This will be done, at least in part, by our planned drilling program. We have not yet ascertained whether the Hay Mountain land package possesses commercially viable deposits of copper, molybdenum, gold, silver, lead, zinc, manganese and other metals including rare earth elements, uranium and thorium but data to date suggests it does. We have not identified any ore reserves to date. We have no way of finding out any of this without drilling.”

Hay Mountain Project: Drill Holes Selected for Drilling on Two Outcrops Showing High Grade Copper

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 2:56 PM on Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

  • Encouraging results will dictate another nine drill holes, resulting in a line of 11 bisecting the main porphyry anomaly in an east–west direction
  • Recent detailed mapping found pervasively brecciated limestone, which led to the conclusion that the area called the Chrysocolla Block (where the first discovery of oxide copper in outcrop was made) was misidentified as the Colina limestone

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce that very high grade copper oxide outcrops near the geochemical high derived from vegetation sampling have been discovered. These show up to 22% copper.

Recent detailed mapping found pervasively brecciated limestone, which led to the conclusion that the area called the Chrysocolla Block (where the first discovery of oxide copper in outcrop was made) was misidentified as the Colina limestone. Further evaluation led to the conclusion that the zone was of the lower Earp formation, which is the layer directly below the Colina. A red clay marker bed at the base of the exposed Earp limestone breccia clearly identifies it, but had been inexplicably missed by previous geologists. Current understanding indicates that the latest targets may bloom into major mineral zones 200 to 400 feet in depth at their intersection with the Horquilla limestone, the major mineral host in the region.

After ID of the lower part of the Earp, the Company’s skarn consultant (recently working on another Arizona project in the same sedimentary rocks, containing high grade copper) felt that there was a strong possibility that the two high grade copper oxide outcrops could be positioned right above high grade copper mineralization. This opinion correlates with Liberty Star’s geophysical–geochemical cross sections: see graphics.

Company CEO/Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe notes: “This is the specific target we have been searching for before kicking off a drill program. This development of discovery by use of the Niton and lots of boots on the ground carefully observing rocks gave us this completely unexpected outcrop; we have made the breakthrough we needed. This find is exciting and meaningful because it is the largest exposure so far located at Hay Mountain, and is similar to outcrops in the Bisbee mining district 15 miles south.”

Briscoe continues: “This outcropping oxidized mineral occurrence, taken with our recent work, confirms increasing mineral intensity over the previous geochemical and geophysical anomalies, and is confirmation of the type of mineralization we wanted to find. We have much technical work, including drilling, to complete prior to declaring an ore body present at Hay Mountain, but until now we were working with indirect geochemical, geophysical and geologic interpretation; this is direct evidence.”

Drilling Planned-Permitting Underway

Two drill holes 600’ apart have been spotted over the two sites of the gossan outcrops. Work on nine other targets across the heart of the geochemical-geophysical anomaly is underway. The flexible drill plan calls for vertical diamond core holes to as deep as 2,000 feet. If horizontal bedded ore grade copper or other metals are intercepted, 45 degree angle holes will be drilled to determine width, thickness and shape of the mineralization. Contorted, broken and brecciated beds are nearby and along the line of holes, which is characteristic of the porphyry copper geologic environment. “This is a good environment for defining out an important ore body,” comments Briscoe.

Plans call for holes up to 2,000 feet deep but could be shallower. Each hole would take about 20 days to drill and cost about $200,000 if drilled to total depth: estimated start time of about January 2016.

Liberty Star CEO/Chief Geologist Briscoe Updates Manila, Philippines Hay Mountain Project Presentation

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 12:45 PM on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce a very positive response to the meeting and presentation of the Company’s wholly owned Hay Mountain Project by Liberty Star President James A. Briscoe and Director Brett Gross in Manila, Philippines. Mr. Briscoe offers his assessment of the presentation and meeting conducted March 2-3 in Manila:

“We presented the Hay Mountain Project in great detail to a group of 16 long experienced mining professionals and potential investors in downtown Manila, Philippines on Monday. The response was very positive to both the geologic details and the business proposition presented by Director Gross. The company has been in almost constant communication since the presentation, and we believe substantial and important progress is being made toward financing of Phase 1, which will then lead to Phase 2 in the following year.

“Preparation for the meeting took place on Sunday, March 1, 2015, as some of the participants arrived a day early and were staying at the same hotel we were presenting in. The prerequisite to attend the meeting was signing a binding legal non-disclosure and non-compete (ND/NC) agreement. This task had been completed by several of the early attendees, so they were able to partake in generalities about Hay Mountain. The following morning work started at 7 a.m. in obtaining signatures from the rest of the attendees, several of whom had traveled great distances to attend. Once all the ND/NC documents were signed, the meeting started on time at 9 a.m.

“I presented first, reviewing detailed geologic, geochemical, geophysical details and interpretation of the detailed and various studies that have been conducted over the last four years. At the end of about 2.5 hours, we took a short break and then Brett Gross presented the business plan, and ongoing questions and comments were answered and discussed, on both presentations.

“Significant interest continues after the Manila meeting. Four mining experts are expected to travel to Tucson, where a thorough tour will be arranged, which will take an expected three to four days, to examine local large mines that are similar to what is expected at depth at Hay Mountain. The tour will be conducted as soon as travel visas can be arranged. We believe that because of their background they will be as impressed with the potential as we are. Of course success cannot be assured, but this a very strong starting point.

“Other interested parties of significant stature are currently discussing a starting point, which is our stringent ND/NC document. We hope that we can continue meaningful negotiations with them as well.

“Considering the low point in the copper cycle, it is encouraging that we are getting such substantial response, and I look forward to the potential that Phase 1 will be financed soon.”
