Vancouver, British Columbia, May 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Spey Resources Corp. (CSE: SPEY) (OTC: SPEYF) (FRA: 2JS) ("Spey” or the "Company"), further to its March 15, 2023 news release, is pleased to provide an update on the progress of the exploration plan and resource estimate in respect of its Incahuasi Salar property, Candela II, where five DDH wells were drilled in 2021.


  • Southern Rock Geophysics have scheduled a magnetotelleric (MT) survey (the “Survey”) to commence on or about May 18, 2023. The Survey will take approximately 5 days to complete at Candela II and the results are expected to be available approximately 4 - 6 weeks after the data has been processed.

  • The Company has appointed WSP Australia (“WSP”) to produce a NI 43-101 report. WSP is a leading global consultancy with more than 4,400 professionals and a dedicated group skilled in hydrology and brine resource estimates. WSP recently completed the Ioneer mineral resources and ore reserves estimation and reporting work. The Company aims to utilize information gathered from the Survey toward building a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") resource estimate.

Candela II Geophysics Survey

Southern Rock Geophysics will mobilize their team in mid-May 2023 to complete the Survey. The Survey data, once received and processed, will contribute to the resource estimate data and also provide guidance as to future drilling targets.

EC Asociados have commenced an environmental base line study in preparation for further drilling activity. A social survey was also recently completed that surveyed the Tolar Grande community, which is approximately 45 kilometres away from Candela II. These studies will add to the existing environmental plan the Company lodged with the Salta Mining Court on December 19, 2022.

Candela II NI 43-101 Resource Statement

The Company sent a request for information to a number of professional firms to complete a resource estimate given the exploration data to date. Based on the responses, the Company selected WSP given their expertise, experience and skill appropriate to the task. One of the key tasks going forward will be determining the hydrological balance of the salar.
