Patriot Battery Metals is a mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition and development of mineral projects containing base and precious metals, including platinum group elements, and lithium.
The Company’s flagship asset is the Freeman Creek Gold Property, located approximately 15 km northeast of Salmon, Idaho and hosts excellent access via paved highway and a network of gravel roads and trails. The Property is situated proximal to the northeast trending Trans-Challis Fault system, which demarcates the approximate boundaries of a large metallogenic (Au, Ag) province, and hosts two major mineral prospects; Gold Dyke and Carmen Creek.
The Gold Dyke Prospect, hosts historical drill intercepts of 1.5 g/t Au and 12.1 g/t Ag over 44.2 m (RDH 8) and 1.7 g/t Au and 17.1 g/t Ag over 21.3 m (RDH 10) as well as recent surface sample results including 10.9 g/t Au, 80.1 g/t Ag, and 0.72% Cu; and 4.32 g/t Au and 292 g/t Ag. The Carmen Creek Prospect is characterized by multiple, closely spaced and parallel trending mineralized structures/vein(s) identified over a mapped strike length of at least 1.2 km, which are open at both ends. Surface sampling results include 25.5 g/t Au, 159 g/t Ag and 9.75% Cu; 7.08 g/t Au, 59.5 g/t Ag and 1.53% Cu; 2.00 g/t Au, 269 g/t Ag, and 11.4% Cu.

The properties are contiguous and host significant gold-silver-copper-PGE-lithium potential highlighted by the Golden Gap Prospect with grab samples of 3.1 to 108.9 g/t Au from outcrop and 10.5 g/t Au over 7 m in drill hole, the Elsass and Lorraine prospects with 8.15% Cu, 1.33 g/t Au, and 171 g/t Ag in outcrop, and the CV1 and CV5-6 pegmatite prospects with 2.28% Li2O over 6 m in channel and 4.06% Li2O and 564 ppm Ta2O5 in grab sample, respectively, outlining a core lithium trend in excess of two kilometres.
