Phoenix Lithium Project
Big Bird Lithium Pegmatite - 1,280 m strike length, 1.24% Li2O over 34.3 m
Curlew Lithium Pegmatite - 400 m strike length, 1.72% over 14.87 m
The Phoenix Project was acquired by Clean Commodities Corp. from North Arrow Minerals Inc., in 2016 and consists of seven (7) mineral claims, covering 5,629 ha, located in the Northwest Territories. The project is approximately 70km southeast of the producing Diavik Diamond Mine and are less than 60 km from existing winter road infrastructure. The Phoenix Project hosts the Big Bird and Curley lithium-rich pegmatite deposits.
The Big Bird pegmatite has been mapped over a 1,280m strike length with observable outcrop widths ranging from 8m to greater than 80m. Past drilling at the Big Bird pegmatite returned 1.24% Li2O over 34.3m.
The Curlew pegmatite has been mapped over a strike length of 400m with widths up to 20m. Past drilling at the Curlew pegmatite returned 1.72% Li2O over 14.87m.
The significant lithium grades and widths returned from limited drilling of the Big Bird and Curlew pegmatites highlights the potential for the Phoenix claims to also host further large lithium-rich spodumene pegmatites.

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - February 22, 2017) - Clean Commodities Corp. (TSX VENTURE: CLE) ("Clean Commodities" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announced that it has entered into an agreement with Canadian International Minerals Inc. ("Canadian International") in which Clean Commodities will acquire a 50% interest in the drill-ready Manitou Cobalt Project.
Project was previously held by Kaminak Gold Corp. ("Kaminak") (since acquired by Goldcorp).
Historic cobalt sample of 0.46% Co.
AeroTEM II survey by Kaminak identified numerous conductors believed to be caused by magmatic sulphides.
Additional high-grade historic samples of up to 3.19% Cu, 1.06% Ni, and 4 g/t Pt-Pd-Au.
Inaugural field sampling/mapping work program planned for late-Q2/early-Q3 2017, funded by Clean Commodities.
An objective of the upcoming field program will be to confirm drill site locations previously identified by Kaminak for a potential drill campaign in Q3 2017, funded under a JV structure.
"The Manitou Cobalt-Nickel-PGE project is an advanced exploration project which has attracted considerable technical interest within our industry. We are pleased to be working with Canadian International to move this high-impact nickel-cobalt exploration project forward during 2017," commented Ryan Kalt, Chief Executive Officer of Clean Commodities Corp.
About the Manitou Cobalt-Nickel-PGE Project:
The Manitou Cobalt-Nickel-PGE Project is located in Quebec, Canada and consists of two sub-project areas, Manitou and Return Lake. The Manitou project area encompasses one claim block totaling 2,174 ha and the Return Lake project area encompasses four claim blocks totaling 1,577 ha (see Figure 1).
At Manitou, initial priority will be assigned to four target areas identified by way of past work by Kaminak, referenced as the NE1, NE2, NE3 and NE7 targets, including enhancement of our confidence in the proposed drill targets and collar locations.
At Return Lake, initial interest is the examination of a large-scale EM anomaly defined by Kaminak and referenced as the C1 target (see Figure 2). The target coincides with an olivine-showing cross-referenced to government data in the central portion of the anomaly which may correlate to a mafic/ultramafic intrusion.
