LAS VEGAS, NEVADA–(Marketwired – Aug 10, 2016) – Horizon Minerals Corp., (“Horizon” or the “Company”) (OTC PINK:HZNM) is pleased to announce it has engaged Gold Exploration Management Inc. (“Gold Exploration”), a private corporation controlled by David A. Bending, M.Sc., P. Geo., providing mineral exploration project management services. Gold Exploration has been actively involved in the evaluation of Gold and Lithium exploration concessions in Nevada, California and Mexico, and will be instrumental in helping the Company to acquire potential projects. Clayton Valley, Nevada hosts the only commercial producing lithium operation in North America – Silver Peak, owned and operated by Albemarle, the world’s largest lithium producers.

According to a 2013 report on lithium brine deposits released by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the floor of Clayton Valley has an area of about 100 km2 and a catchment of about 1,400 km2. Clayton Valley is the topographically lowest of at least five adjacent basins that are hydrologically linked by groundwater flow. In this case, it is the combined area of all five linked catchments that result in the effective area of the Clayton Valley Li-brine system much larger than the footprint of the Clayton Valley (Source: USGS Open File 13-1006, 2013).
