Medaro Mining Sampled up to 2.58% Lithium Oxide and Provides Drill Program Update on Lac La Motte Lithium Property in Quebec

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medaro Mining Corp. (CSE: MEDA) (OTC: MEDAF) (FWB: 1ZY) ("Medaro" or the "Company"), a multi-faceted venture aimed at developing innovative spodumene processing technology concurrent with its lithium focused exploration in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has received results of cut surface samples from exploration fieldwork program (the "Program") on its Lac La Motte Lithium Property (the "Property") located in Val D'Or, Quebec, Canada. The work was completed during the months of May-June 2022 and included prospecting, mapping and sampling of known lithium showings and other areas on the Property. The scope of work was to confirm the historical lithium occurrences and drill holes documented for this area, and to find targets for the current exploratory drill program.

Lac La Motte 2022 Drill Program Update
Medaro has contracted Forage Hebert Inc. (Herbert) to drill a series of NQ size diamond drill holes on lithium targets and showings on the Property. The contract is for a minimum of 1,000 meters to a maximum of 3,000 meters (see news release June 13, 2022). To date a total of 17 NQ size core drill holes have been completed on the Property with a cumulative drilling of 2,408 meters. The focus of the drill program is a 500 m long pegmatite trend partially exposed at surface with widths in the range of 0.5 to 2 meters. Several drill holes in the current work program intercepted lithium pegmatite zones.

A core shack located about 40 kilometers from the Property is used for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage. The drill core is being logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. The drill core samples are being shipped to Activation Laboratories in Ontario, results are pending and will be announced once received.

Surface Sampling and Analytical Procedure
Each surface sample from this work represents about 30cm long, 5 cm wide and 3-5 cm deep cut in bedrock. The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories ("ACTLABS"), Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses using laboratories code Ultratrace 7 as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
Code Ultratrace 7 ? Peroxide Fusion ? ICP and ICP/MS

Samples are fused with sodium peroxide in a Zirconium crucible. The fused sample is acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The resulting solutions are diluted and then measured by ICP-OES and ICP-MS. All metals are solubilized.

Fused samples are diluted and analyzed by Agilent 7900 ICP-MS. Calibration is performed using five synthetic calibration standards. A set of (10-20) fused certified reference material is run with every batch of samples for calibration and quality control. Fused duplicates are run every 10 samples.

Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials for the required analytes, all prepared by sodium peroxide fusion. Every 10th sample is prepared and analyzed in duplicate; a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed. Samples are analyzed using a Varian 735ES ICP and internal standards are used as part of the standard operating procedure.
