Gold Summit Vends Lithium Brine Project To Black Pearl For Cash And Equity

Lithium Brine ProjectGold Summit Corporation (TSX-V GSM) has agreed to sell a 100% interest in a lithium brine prospect to Black Pearl Minerals Consolidated Inc (TSX-V BLK) for a total consideration of $300,000 in cash and 3 million BLK common shares as well as certain acquisition costs. The prospect, located in Esmeralda County, Nevada, covers an area of about 31 square kilometres and was recently staked by GSM. The agreement is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange.

As part of the same agreement, GSM and BLK have entered into a regional alliance in the Great Basin Province of the western United States to explore for other lithium brine deposits which can also contain significant quantities of potassium. For every additional project acquired BLK will pay GSM $100,000 in cash and issue 1 million common shares as well as exploration costs.
Commenting on the sale of the prospect and the involvement in lithium exploration, Dr A. P. Taylor, President and CEO of Gold Summit said: ”originated as a geological idea that we were unwilling to pursue ourselves, we turned it to account for cash and a significant equity stake in a dedicated lithium company”

Gold Summit explores principally in the United States for high grade gold and gold/silver deposits that would support underground, low cash cost operations. GSM’s primary properties, totalling 42 km2, cover four Tertiary epithermal vein districts in Nevada. All these have drill ready targets defined by surface work, most with bonanza grades in outcrops or discovery drill holes.
