The Company's website and corporate presentation also referenced the gross value per barrel of lithium Brine in respect of the Green Energy Lithium Project, contrary to NI 43-101 requirements, which prohibit the disclosure of the gross value of metal or mineral in a deposit. The Company retracts all disclosure regarding the gross value of in-situ minerals, and these statements have been deleted from the Company's website and corporate presentation. The Company cautions that any disclosure of the gross in-situ value of a mineral deposit is meaningless and may be misleading, because it fails to take into consideration operating and capital costs, recoveries and other factors relating to the potential extraction and recovery of minerals.
The Company's website and corporate presentation disclosed grades from the Green Energy lithium project which selective in nature, as they disclosed the highest tested grades and did not represent the total grades tested on the Green Energy lithium project. The foregoing selective disclosures have been removed from the Company's website and corporate presentation.
The projects section of the Company's website and corporate presentation included comparisons of geological similarities between the Bounty Potash deposit and the Wendover potash mine. These statements have been deleted from the Company's website as they are not in compliance with applicable disclosure requirements, and the Company clarifies that the Bounty potash project is at an early stage of development and should not be compared with an operating potash mine.
The Company's corporate presentation, the projects section of the Company's website, the Company's corporate presentation, the Research Reports, and several of the Company's past news releases referred to the Moonshine Spring Project being "adjacent to a 4 million pound U308 deposit owned by Denison Mines". The Company retracts the statement that the property held by Denison Mines Corp. ("Denison") adjacent to the Company's Moonshine Spring Project has a 4 million pound U308 deposit. The Company clarifies that a qualified person acting on behalf of the Company has been unable to verify the U308 deposit on Denison's property and that any deposit on Dennison's adjacent property is not necessarily indicative of mineralization on the Company's Moonshine Springs Project. Furthermore, the Company's Moonshine Springs Project, which is in an early stage of exploration, should not be compared to the deposit owned by Denison Mines Corp.
The Bounty potash project section of the Company's website disclosed that auger sampling is sufficient to "generate an updated ore reserve calculation" and that the Bounty potash project has a "historic resource estimate open for expansion". These statements have been deleted from the Company's website, and the Company clarifies that it has not demonstrated economic the economic viability of the Bounty project.
