White Cliff Minerals Limited (ASX:WCN) ("White Cliff" or the "Company"), advises that drilling has commenced at the Lake Percy Lithium Project.

White Cliff has a joint venture with Liontown Resources Limited (ASX:LTR) ("Liontown"), that allows Liontown to earn up to 70% of its Lake Percy Lithium Project, located approximately 430km east of Perth, Western Australia.

Liontown announced on 13th March 2017 that a maiden RC program comprising 7-10 holes for up to 2,500m drilling has commenced at the Lake Percy Lithium Project.

The program will test beneath lithium-in-soil anomalies which are coincident with large pegmatites with true thicknesses locally exceeding 100m.

The drilling program is expected to take approximately two weeks with assays due in mid-late April 2017.


About White Cliff Minerals Ltd

White Cliff Minerals Ltd (ASX:WCN) is a Western Australian based exploration company with the following main projects:

Kyrgyz Aucu Gold Project (90%): The Project contains extensive porphyry related gold and copper mineralisation starting at the surface and extending over several kilometres. Drilling during 2014-6 has defined a gold deposit currently containing an inferred resource of 1.8Mt at 5.2 g/t containing 302,000 ounces of gold and 608,000 tonnes at 0.64% copper containing 3870 tonnes of copper. Drilling has also defined a significant copper deposit at surface consisting of 10Mt at 0.41% copper containing 41,000 tonnes of copper.

Extensive mineralisation occurs around both deposits demonstrating significant expansion potential. The project is located in the Kyrgyz Republic, 350km west-southwest of the capital city of Bishkek and covers 57 square kilometres. The Chanach project is located in the western part of the Tien Shan Belt, a highly mineralised zone that extending for over 2500 km, from western Uzbekistan, through Tajikistan, Kyrgyz Republic and southern Kazakhstan to western China.

Merolia Gold and Nickel Project (100%): The project consists of 771 square kilometres of the Merolia Greenstone belt and contains extensive ultramafic sequences including the Diorite Hill layered ultramafic complex, the Rotorua ultramafic complex, the Coglia ultramafic complex and a 51 kilometre long zone of extrusive ultramafic lavas. The intrusive complexes are prospective for nickel-copper sulphide accumulations possibly with platinum group elements, and the extrusive ultramafic rocks are prospective for nickel sulphide and nickel-cobalt accumulations.

The project also contains extensive basalt sequences that are prospective for gold mineralisation including the Ironstone prospect where historical drilling has identified 24m at 8.6g/t gold. Soil sampling in 2016 has identified multiple mineralised gold trends at Burtville Ea
