Peloton Commences Exploration Programs at North Elko Lithium Project

Peloton Minerals Corporation (PMC) has announced the commencement of a multi-faceted lithium exploration program. This follows a $1 million financing completed in early June 2024.

North Elko Lithium Project Overview

The North Elko Lithium Project (NELP), wholly owned by Peloton, is located adjacent to a major lithium discovery by Surge Battery Metals in northeastern Nevada.

Key Exploration Activities

The exploration program includes several significant activities:

1. **Soil Geochemistry Sampling**: The collection of 923 soil samples across the 35 square kilometer property was completed in two weeks. These samples are now being prepared for assay.

2. **Additional Staking**: Additional stakes have been completed, with further details to be announced in a forthcoming press release.

3. **Detailed Geologic Mapping**: The initial phase of geologic mapping began last week and will continue through July. This involves field notations, XRD mineralogy analysis, and spectrometer prospecting.

4. **Airborne Geophysical Survey**: An airborne survey covering 535 line-kilometers, including Magnetics, Radiometrics, and Matrix Digital VLF-EM, will commence shortly.

5. **Drilling Programs**: A shallow packsack drilling program is set to start after initial results are reviewed. A deeper core drilling program is planned for late 2024 and 2025.
