Free Battery Metal Announces Results of The Mound Lake Property Summer 2023 Prospecting, Sampling and Analysis Program

Mr. Bennett Kurtz reports:

Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 7, 2023) – Free Battery Metal Limited (CSE: FREE) (formerly, Titus Energy Corp.) (the “Company”), is pleased to announce encouraging results from the summer field exploration program of prospecting, sampling, and analysis on the Company’s Mound Lake Property in northwestern Ontario.

From June 16 to July 3, 2023, a comprehensive prospecting and grab sampling program was completed across the property by a 4-person crew from Planet X Exploration Services. The two geologists and two prospectors traversed the property via a network of roads and abandoned logging roads accessible using all-terrain vehicles. Prospective outcrops were examined and in total, 213 grab samples were collected for analysis. On collecting, each sample was described, photographed, and analyzed with a handheld XRF instrument. Duplicates of each sample were kept for further research and analysis. The remainder of each sample was sent to ALS Laboratories Canada Ltd. in Thunder Bay where 48 element four acid ICP-MS analyses were completed.

A preliminary review of the analysis results indicates abundant pathfinder elements with elevated Tantalum, Beryllium and Rubidium and consistent values of Lithium. A detailed evaluation of the results will be completed to establish targets for further exploration and research.

Using the results, geospatial maps showing sample sites and element concentrations have been created to help identify areas for further sampling and mapping. The geospatial maps indicate several areas of interest including an apparent trend of coincident Lithium, Tantalum, Rubidium and Beryllium values over a distance of ~3km on the east side of Mound Lake.

The area of increased pathfinder elements is located in the northern portion of the Mound Lake Property where a boundary is shared with Pegmatite One Lithium and Gold’s (“Pegmatite”) Frazer Lake Mound Property which hosts a new pegmatite discovery with grades of up to 7.25% Li2O as reported under Pegmatite’s press release dated August 10, 2023.

The Company did not independently confirm or verify their accuracy or reliability of Pegmatite’s statements. The Company also reminds investors that the results, resources or mineralization on the adjacent property are not necessarily indicative of the potential for similar to exist on the Company’s Mound Lake Property.

Grab samples were managed by Planet X Exploration Services Ltd. All samples were bagged, sealed, and stored inside a storage locker until delivery to an independent laboratory, ALS Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario (ISO/IEC 17025:2017). The initial batch of samples were analyzed by four acid digestion with ICP-MS finish (ME-MS61). Standards and blanks were submitted with the shipment to supplement the lab’s internal controls.
