AM Resources Identifies 49 New Pegmatites on its Significant Land Package in the Austrian Pegmatite Belt

AM Resources Corporation (“AM Resources” or the “Company”) (TSXV: AMR) (Frankfurt: 76A), a dynamic junior mining company focused on the exploration and development of high-potential pegmatite lithium deposits, is pleased to announce the discovery of 49 new pegmatites within an area of 12,32 km2. These pegmatites consolidate the Company’s strategic position in one of Austria’s most prospective lithium areas.

Recently announced 1,500 km2 land package gives AM Resources control over a large area of the Austrian Pegmatite Belt (see press release dated March 21, 2024).Land package also includes the Valerie Property, where 27 pegmatites have been identified over an area of 7.2 km2, and the Emilia Property, where 22 pegmatites have been identified over an area of 5.12 km2.AM Resources properties are located within a 620 km radius of 14 battery plants.

AM Resources’ 1,500 km2land package

Valerie Property
Located just 1 km southwest of the Frederick property, the Valerie property hosts 27 pegmatites over an area of 7.2 km2. The average pegmatite length is 203 metres and the longest one measures 447 metres.

Emilia Property
Located 8 km southwest of the Frederick property, the 5.12 km2 Emilia property hosts 22 pegmatites with the longest pegmatite measuring 505 metres long and 110 metres wide, showcasing the large scale potential of the Austrian Pegmatite Belt.

Total length of pegmatites – a marker of potential
The cumulative length of pegmatites across the Valerie and Emilia properties amounts to 8 km, indicative of the substantial prospective lithium opportunity at hand.

David Grondin, CEO of AM Resources commented: “The added strategic value of our Emilia and Valerie properties cannot be overstated, with 8 km of pegmatite bodies to explore. Combined with the 112 pegmatites on the Frederick property, we could not be more excited to begin our exploration campaign.”

“In terms of logistics, we have the strong advantage of having our technical team, led by Julien Desrosiers, our COO Europe, all based in Europe, which will have a positive impact on costs and acquisition opportunities. In addition, our team has a strong understanding of the permitting and regulatory process in Austria and has access to the necessary resources and equipment to explore and develop our projects,” added Mr. Grondin.

Geological setting, the importance of the mica schists bodies1
The geology of the Austrian Pegmatite Belt is similar to geological formations in Canada. The presence of mica schists is significant. Mica schists are metamorphic rocks that have undergone high-temperature and pressure changes. These conditions are favorable for the formation of certain minerals, including spodumene, from the breakdown of Li-bearing alumino-silicate mineral staurolite, which can contain significant amounts of lithium (up to 0.3% Li2O). The breakdown of staurolite can release lithium into the surrounding rock, where it can be incorporated into pegmatites.

The partial melting of rocks is crucial for the development of pegmatites in the Austroalpine Unit of the Eastern Alps, where albite-spodumene pegmatites are associated with metamorphic events. The evidence suggests pegmatites are derived from the anatexis of Al-Li-rich metapelites under upper amphibolite facies conditions.

Location, location, location
As previously reported, the AM Resources team has been actively assembling a massive prospective land package with four key elements at the core of its strategy: proven geology, proximity to key markets, historical expertise, and a clear, proven mining code. AM Resources’ Austrian properties are located within 620 km of 14 planned battery plants and have direct access to an extensive rail system.
