Mineral explorer Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”)(LBSR: OTCQB) is pleased to announce that a proposal for a helicopter-borne ZTEM (geophysical) survey has been received from Geotech LTD (“Geotech”) of Ontario, Canada, covering the Hay Mountain and other lands comprising the Company’s Tombstone Super Project (”TSP”) in southeastern Arizona. The survey will also cover other land within and around the Tombstone caldera.

Geotech proposes 1,440 flight lines investigating the geophysical response in a single block measuring survey area, results in approximately 2,430 line kilometers at 200 meter line spacing. According to Geotech, “The proprietary receiver design using the advantages of modern digital electronics and signal processing delivers exceptionally low-noise levels.” The result is unparalleled depth of investigation in precision electromagnetic measurements with a geophysical measurement every 8.5 meters along the lines and a penetration of approximately 6,000 feet below the land surface. Liberty Star’s target elements are gold, copper, moly, silver, rare earth metals, lead and zinc, along with other byproduct metals occurring in a porphyry gold copper environment, as indicated by Liberty Star’s detailed geochemical survey results (News Release 127, June 29, 2012).

About the Tombstone Super Project (TSP)

The TSP initially consisted of 33 unpatented federal lode mining claims over a projected covered porphyry copper mineral center in Cochise County, Arizona. In September 2011, more claims covering approximately eight square miles were added after Chief Geologist James Briscoe discovered a large multimodal anomaly over a large covered porphyry copper mineral center within the larger TSP area. In 2011, SRK Consulting prepared three NI 43-101 compliant technical reports over Liberty Star’s holdings. Each report recommended further exploration on the area. An extensive geochemical survey for 64 elements revealed the presence of porphyry copper, gold, silver, lead, moly, zinc and several rare earth elements. Mining throughout the region began in the late 19th century and led to the rise of legendary boomtown Tombstone, Arizona. Many of the old mining sites, and what is now Liberty Star’s unmined land, reside within or adjacent to a large volcanic and intrusive geologic feature known as a caldera. These caldera structures are present throughout southern Arizona, making the region one of the richest porphyry copper areas on the planet.
