Coloured Ties Capital Inc. (TSXV: TIE) (OTC Pink: APEOF) (FSE: 97A0) (“Coloured Ties” or the “Company”) an investment company focused on business incubation and opportunities that disrupt their industry, is pleased to provide the following update:
VIEUX COMPTOIR LITHIUM PROJECT OPTION AGREEMENT APPROVED BY TSX-V:
Further to the news release dated December 7, 2022, Quebec Pegmatite (“QPC”) is pleased to report the TSX Venture Exchange has formally approved the option of the Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property to Superior Mining International (TSXV: SUI).
Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement QPC will receive the following share issuances:
- 7,000,000 common shares of Superior (the “Superior Shares”) upon receipt of approval of the TSX Venture Exchange;
- 3,500,000 Superior Shares payable on the one-year anniversary of the Option Agreement; and
- 3,500,000 Superior Shares payable on the eighteen-month anniversary of the Option Agreement.
Additionally, Superior shall grant QPC a 3.0% net smelter return royalty (the “NSR Royalty”) and the NSR Royalty may be reduced to 1.5% upon Superior making a cash payment of $3,000,000 to QPC.
The Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property comprises a total of 381 Quebec mineral exploration claims, which amount to a total of 19,533.81 hectares or ~195 square kilometers. Located in the centre of significant lithium discoveries by Patriot Battery Metals (TSXV: PMET) only 45km west and Winsome Resources (ASX: WR1) 45km east.
The La Grande subprovince regional trend has encountered multiple high grade lithium intersections including recently announced 83.7m of 3.13% Li2O, including 19.8m of 5.28% Li2O from Patriot Battery Metals and over 107.6m of 1.34% Li2O from Winsome Resources.
The Vieux Comptoir Property encompasses lithium pegmatite prospective source rocks of the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite which have been identified on the Property. The Property sits along the volcanic belt and encompasses various intrusive suites including the lithium pegmatite prospective source rocks of the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite which have been mapped on the property. Regionally, the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite is known to host K-feldspar granite phases in pegmatite form which may host an abundance of spodumene.
Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property is underlain by the source rock (Vieux Comptoir suite) which would have injected pegmatite dykes into those greenstone rocks in the region. This geological interpretation strongly supports the prospectivity of the Project for further lithium discoveries.

ABOUT HERTZ LITHIUM:
Hertz Lithium owns 100% interest in the Lucky Mica Property, which covers 939 hectares in Maricopa Country, Arizona along the Arizona Pegmatite Belt.
Lucky Mica Property is an early-stage exploration project, with outcropping pegmatite over 300m, with anomalous Li, Ta, and Nb geochemistry and is well positioned in the Arizona Pegmatite Belt, an emerging high-grade hard rock lithium district with known lithium deposits. In 2017, grab samples performed by SGS Canada indicated ore grade potential with two samples exceeding 20,000 ppm of lithium. The most mineralized grab sample had 34,850 ppm of lithium.
PATRIOT LITHIUM’S (ASX: PAT) NOVA LITHIUM PROJECT SURROUNDING LUCKY MICA RESULTS:
Australian based and ASX listed Patriot Lithium (ASX: PAT) owns mineral claims surrounding the Hertz, Lucky Mica project and have reported promising lithium discoveries at the Dove Pegmatite on their adjoining claim block, SEE MAP.
“Three pegmatites have now been mapped at Dove that exhibit potential for spodumene mineralisation. Their surface expression can be traced along strike for at least ~440m at the Dove West pegmatite and ~430m at the Dove East pegmatites (Figures 1 and 2). The Dove West and East pegmatites are trending subparallel but are separated by ~90-120m. The apparent maximum width of the individual pegmatites is ~15m. A small pegmatite outcrop ~80m east of Dove East may represent a fourth, albeit poorly exposed pegmatite body of the Dove system.” Source
Hertz Lithium is mobilizing it’s own aggressive exploration program at the Lucky Mica Project and will update shareholders as results are obtained.
PENN STATE OPTION TO LICENCE PATENT PENDING EXTRACTION TECHNOLOGY OF LITHIUM FROM HARD ROCK SOURCES:
Hertz Lithium has an option to license the worldwide rights to patent pending technology from Penn State University’s, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. Penn State University is developing this new patent pending technology for the extraction of lithium from Spodumene with upwards of a 90% recovery factor. The current process of lithium extraction requires roasting the spodumene at a temperature of 1050 C to transform the natural crystalline form of spodumene to a form which can be leached at a high temperature. This is a costly, energy-extensive process. Penn State University’s College of Earth and Mineral Sciences has submitted patents for a breakthrough technology that offers a way to extract the lithium from hard rock sources with increased economic efficiencies.
