Petro Horizon Initiates a 43-101 Report
on its Lithium, Rare Metals Project
_________________________________________________________________March 17, 2010
The Company is pleased to announce that it has retained Mercator Geological Services
Limited to expedite the completion of a 43-101 report on the Brazil Lake Lithium and Rare
Metals Property. Upon receipt of the 43-101 report expected within the next 45 days, the
company will announce its 2010 work program immediately thereafter.
Mercator Geological Services Limited is based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and has extensive
experience with local Nova Scotia geology including the granitic intrusions similar in age to those
that are thought to be associated with Brazil Lake Lithium Rare Metals Property.
An initial site visit was recently conducted in early March attended by Mercator geologist, Mike
Cullen and Petro Horizon's president, Ron Bourgeois. The trip also included several meetings
with community and business leaders and well as meetings with the Nova Scotia Department of
Natural Resources. Petro Horizon president, Ron Bourgeois stated“ My initial impression is there is significant
support from both the provincial government and the local mining industry in our propose
endeavour at Brazil Lake. “

About Brazil Lake Lithium Rare Metals Project
The 3,160 acre property that is yet to be diligently explored by the company, is located
approximately 30 Kilometers north of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia and
12 kilometers west of
the Avalon Rare Metals (AVL) East Kemptville Project. Drilling to date on the Property
has successfully revealed two Lithium bearing pegmatite dikes in addition to a host other
rare metals such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium, tungsten tin and rubidium.
Metallurgical bench testing to date has also revealed other potential economic targets
include cosmetic grade mica, silica chloride, aluminum chloride and rubidium enriched
The two identified lithium and rare metal bearing pegmatite dikes that appear at surface
have been defined by drilling to be up to 20 meters wide and having exposed lengths up
to 300 meters long. The deepest drill hole intersected the dikes at 50 meters depth. Both
pegmatites remain open at depth and future drilling in the upcoming work program will
attempt to extend the depth of the dikes to a minimum of 100 meters.
The signature dispersal train of pegmatite boulders identifying the currently drilled
pegmatites will assist in identifying three other boulders fields indicating potential
pegmatite targets. .Geochemical surveys have also assisted in the identification of these
additional targets It is well know that pegmatites occur in swarms and therefore, the
company, in addition to the drilling program on the currently established two dikes, plans
to carry out a detailed prospecting program to source other potential targets.
Lithium on the property is hosted by the mineral spodumene which makes up
approximately 14 to 20% of the pegmatites. The lithium oxide (Li²O) content in the
spodumene is approximately 7.4% to 7.7%. The Contained Rare Metals
On March 2nd, the Company announced assay results from the drill holes that addressed
the rare metals contained within the pegmatites. These included rubidium (“Rb”),
beryllium (“Be”) and tantalum (“Ta”). Examples of the grades included Hole #02-15 in
the lithium pegmatites which returned values up to 1398 parts per million (“ppm”) Rb
over 15.3 meters including 2625 ppm Rb over 4.2 meters. Hole #02-24 in the lithium
pegmatites returned values up to 200 ppm Be over 35.8 meters including 304 ppm Be
over 14.9 meters. Hole #93-2 in the lithium pegmatites returned values up to 102 ppm Ta
over 24 meters including 541 ppm Ta over 1.0 meter. Metallurgy regarding the rare
metals was addressed in previous metallurgy work that was confirmed at Dalhousie
University. The results were positive and encouraging and it is the company’s intentions
to release news on these results shortly.
