US Critical Metals (USCMF) announces Eagle Plains Resources Ltd.’s acquisition of a 100% interest in the Sphinx molybdenum-tungsten deposit.

The deposit, defined by 38 holes and 10,686m of drilling, consists of a tabular, steeply-west dipping intrusive body. It has a true thickness of 85m and a strike length of 230m. The alteration system, 700m by 350m in size, is developed in the host sedimentary and intrusive rocks.

Eagle Plains’ Previous Ownership

Eagle Plains previously owned a 100% interest in the Sphinx deposit in the early 2000s and sold its interest in 2009. At the time, molybdenum prices were approximately $US 23/kg. Currently, molybdenum prices exceed $US 50/kg, with prices in March 2023 reaching a high of $US 96/kg. Both molybdenum and tungsten are considered “Critical Metals” by the Canadian government.

Recent Acquisition

With the recent successful acquisition, Eagle Plains now owns an unencumbered 100% interest in the Sphinx deposit, in a robust critical metals commodities cycle.
