Spark Energy Minerals: Building a Portfolio of World-Class Battery Metals and Mineral Assets in Leading Global Mining Regions

Spark Energy Minerals (formerly St. Anthony Gold Corp.) is a Canadian company pursuing battery metals and mineral assets with newly acquired interests in Brazil and Canada. It also holds interests in prospective gold assets in Canada as a result of previous acquisitions in the precious metals space.

Management has acquired initial assets that span some of the world’s most prolific mining areas located in leading mining districts in Brazil’s growing lithium provinces and in the Newfoundland, Canada region gaining recognition as a world hot spot for lithium. All of the prospects consist of mineral projects that hold significant mineral assets that can be rapidly brought into a compliance resource stage.

In Brazil, Spark Energy Minerals Inc. has acquired a portfolio of exploration assets in what is widely known as the Brazil’s “Lithium Valley” –an established lithium-bearing region. Of note is the initial ~3,5000 hectare acquisition, with three secured licenses approximately 30KM away from Sigma Lithium (NASDAQ: SGML, TSXV: SGML). Geophysical data shows potential for pegmatites with Lithium. 

With its current aggregate holdings that total ~72,647 hectares, Spark Energy minerals is one of the largest land holders in the prolific Lithium Valley region.

In Canada, Spark Energy Minerals has secured the right to acquire the Burgeo Lithium project in Newfoundland. This deposit is in the Southern end of Newfoundland in the same region as Benton Resources and Sokoman Minerals’ Lithium discovery which is located a short distance up the coastline. 

Benton Resources, whose majority shareholder is Eric Sprott, commenced drilling in the region in a JV with Sokoman Minerals Corp. back in January of 2022 and have drawn significant attention to Newfoundland as a Canadian mining region for lithium.

The aggregate value of the initial projects is significant compared to peer companies in the junior energy mineral space. These projects form a portfolio of projects that the Company is pursuing in parallel.
