Blue Lithium engages Boart for Clayton Valley Lithium Drill

Black Hawk Exploration, Inc.’s wholly owned subsidiary, Blue Lithium Energy Corp., announced that it has engaged Boart Longyear Limited (Boart) to commence its Clayton Valley Lithium drill program.

Blue Lithium previously received an affirmative decision from the United States Department of Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Tonopah, Nevada for its Clayton Valley, Nye County lithium exploration. A financial guarantee bond was required and has been duly submitted and accepted by the BLM, Branch of Minerals Adjudication to warranty complete reclamation of any environmental disturbance to the drill area and keep within Black Hawk Exploration’s corporate “Green Policy.”

The Bureau of Land Management determination notice will remain in effect for two years from the date of the Blue Lithium Energy approval decision. The original Notice of Drill Exploration was filed by Blue Lithium Energy in late November, 2009 and the engagement of Boart Longyear will allow management to fast track its drill program and confirm the Lithium brine levels at the Clayton Valley, Nevada claims.
