Liberty Star Completes ZTEM Geophysical Survey at Hay Mountain, Southeast Arizona

TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. ("Liberty Star" or the "Company")(OTCQB: LBSR) announces that its geophysical contractor Geotech Ltd. ("Geotech") Aurora, Ontario, Canada completed a ZTEM geophysical survey on September 20, 2013.

ZTEM (Z Axis Tipper Electromagnetic system) is a fixed wing or helicopter borne survey method measuring electromagnetic changes because of geologic features in the area of the survey. Geotech's computer technology and sensitive measuring equipment enables detection and modeling of the shape of metallic mineral bodies at depths of up to approximately 2,000 meters below the surface.


The survey was conducted over Liberty Star's Hay Mountain Project as part of exploration work for the delineation to a depth of about 2,000 meters (about 6,000 feet) of a porphyry copper, gold and other metal system suggested by previous geochemical surveys of the area and the recommendations contained in SRK Consulting's NI 43-101 style report undertaken in 2011.

The Hay Mountain ZTEM survey consisted of 432.73 kilometers (268.88 miles) @ 200 meters and 400 meters line spacing, and approximately 8 meters between samples (readings) along each line.

With the delivery of the ZTEM interpreted data Liberty Star geologists, headed by Company CEO and Chief Geologist James A. Briscoe, can begin the work of combining the Geotech findings with the Company's many geologic and geochemical maps into GIS (Geographic Information Systems, ESRI - computer maps) that can undergo further analysis that will lead to specific targets for a phased drilling program to begin as funding allows.
