TUCSON, AZ, Jan. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Star Minerals (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCMarkets: LBSR) is pleased to announce the Arizona State Land Department (ASLD) has issued renewal notifications for 21 MEPs covering Liberty Star’s wholly owned Hay Mountain Project including the Red Rock Canyon Gold Project (RRC). Additionally, the Company has received a new Mineral Exploration Permit (MEP) comprising 80 acres as part of the Company’s ongoing 240 acres claim area over the Robbers Roost Project (RRP), approximately 5.89 miles west of the Hay Mountain Project. The Company is current on all MEP requirements through 2023 renewal dates.
The Red Rock Canyon Gold and Robbers Roost Projects may possess commercially important metals associated with porphyry copper-gold-moly geologic structures, well represented in the area from central Arizona to northern Mexico.
“Liberty Star has been interested in the Robbers Roost area for years, and we are not alone,” comments Company CEO Brett Gross. “Several entities hold MEPs and other mining associated claims in the immediate area. We have geoscientific data, including historical drilling information (by others), that indicate a high potential for mineralization. We remain diligent and optimistic about our progress at Red Rock Canyon as well. The renewals demonstrate our support for the exploration work to date. We believe 2023 presents encouraging opportunities to move the RRC project forward to the overall benefit of the Company, Hay Mountain and our shareholders.”

About Liberty Star Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (LBSR: OTCQB), d/b/a Liberty Star Minerals, is an Arizona-based mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties in Arizona and the southwest USA. Currently the company controls properties which are located over what management considers some of North America’s richest mineralized regions for copper, gold, silver, molybdenum (moly), and associated metals. The Company’s premiere property is the Hay Mountain Project (exploration stage) for porphyry copper, gold, moly and other commercially important minerals. Specific targets have been selected to explore for near surface and deep-seated ore bodies, of which there are numerous analogs nearby. Contiguous with the primary Hay Mountain porphyry exploration target, and part of the overall Hay Mountain Project, is an increasingly attractive area of exploration stage gold mineralization denominated Red Rock Canyon. Red Rock Canyon exhibits what we believe are extensive, promising hydrothermal associated gold-bearing structures that are documented in historical public and Company records (see associated press and social media releases for more information). The Hay Mountain Project is in Cochise County (southeast) Arizona, USA.

When golfers remember their rounds at desert golf courses, a few defining features tend to linger: rocky areas, scattered cacti and sweeping views of a mountainous landscape. Superstition Mountain’s Prospector Course in Gold Canyon, Ariz., features all of that, but it stands out for more.
The club is home to two courses—the Prospector and the Lost Gold—and the private facility is located about a half-hour from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. The Prospector will host the LPGA’s Drive On Championship come late March. The club last hosted an LPGA event in 2008, and since then, it’s become an even better fit for the tournament. Superstition Mountain now boasts a community of eight LPGA Tour members who call the robust practice facility and course compound their home, including world No. 11 Jennifer Kupcho.
I recently had the pleasure of playing the Prospector with two of the club’s resident professionals—UCLA alum Brianna Do and 2022 U.S. Open runner-up Mina Harigae. As a tournament venue the course has historically produced low winning scores – 18-25 under – and Harigae and Do tore the place up. But navigating the Nicklaus design alongside two top-notch tournament golfers wasn’t just quality entertainment: it was the perfect way to uncover the course’s true defenses.
I have to rack my brain to remember the shots Harigae and Do missed, but when they did, there was a pattern. The Prospector course’s most prevalent defense is its well-protected green complexes, and they require you to miss in the right places. Dramatically shaped greens and expertly placed bunkers allow for tucked pin placements that are tricky even for pros.
“I think the hardest thing for people when they come out and play it for the first time is definitely the green complexes,” says Matt Brooks, the director of golf who joined our group. “There’s just a lot of subtle movement. There are a lot of shallow runoffs where you have to maybe chip, maybe putt.”
Brooks isn’t messing around. You can’t tell from back in the fairway, but miss in the wrong spot around the greens and you’ll face quite a short game challenge. The frequent toss-up between a putter and a wedge is real—and it wasn’t just the New York City visitor who hasn’t stepped foot on a practice green in three months who took on those decisions.
The greens are fast, too, and the course still has three months to firm up before the best in the world come to tee it up.
Both the Prospector and the Lost Gold courses are Nicklaus designs while technically not Nicklaus “signatures.” That label requires a premium, so Nicklaus’s son Jack Jr. designed one hole on the Lost Golf and his other son, Gary, designed one hole on the Prospector.
The Prospector makes you wait for the grand reveal of its signature hole, the 18th, which will be an excellent finisher for today’s top female professionals. It’s a par 5 that rolls up to the clubhouse with water running up the entirety of the left side.
Brooks points to another hole as perhaps the most interesting on the track.
“I think the best hole is probably 14, just because it provides you with a lot of options. You can be aggressive and try to hit driver, or you can kind of lay up to the fairway and have a wedge,” he says.
It only takes a few holes to appreciate the experience at Superstition Mountain, but for the avid female golfer, the club will get a few extra points for its pro shop. Superstition Mountain is woman-owned, and the endless women’s golf clothing options make it abundantly clear. Susan Hladky bought the property in late 2009, and it has been a haven for female golfers—professional and recreational—ever since.

Liz Rizzo didn't know Carman Kelly when Kelly greeted her as she walked into Walmart. But Rizzo was touched and made a TikTok about Kelly that has changed her life.
APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. — When things in life seem too good to be true, they often are.
Carman Kelly knows it.
“My life has been up and down up and down," Carman said as she laughed. “They say these are the golden years and I say what’s golden about 'em?”
When Carman moved to Arizona in 2004, she thought her working days were behind her.
Then, life happened.
“I was in the emergency room a few times," Carman said. “My table at home looks like all bills! And I thought there’s no way out.”
She ran out of money.
But the stress never took Carman's smile away.
Carman went back to work. At 82 years old, holding her cane and leaning against a cart to provide some relief, she greets customers at Walmart and shares her smile.
“I love it so much," she said.
On Monday, one of the many recipients of Carman's smile was moved.
“When I saw her when I walked in the door, my heart just cracked open," said Liz Rizzo of Gold Canyon.
Liz couldn't help but wonder why she was still working.
“The seniors in our world need to be taken care of because they took care of us," Liz said.
Liz didn't know this at the time but Carman had $50 in her bank account.
“That’ll get me through to next week," Carman said.
Liz decided to share Carman's story on TikTok with her permission. She also set up a GoFundMe page with a $10,000 goal.
Too good to be true, Liz thought, but she might as well try.
“How long was that video?" asked 12 News reporter Bianca Buono
“90 seconds," Liz said.
Ninety seconds was all it took. Carman's story went viral.
“It captured something that people resonate with," Liz said.
“I can’t even explain it. My life is gonna change so much," Carman said.
Life changing times ten. The GoFundMe page has far surpassed the goal, raising $110,000 and counting.
“That’s mind boggling! Who knew!" Carman said. “There isn’t enough words to tell you how I feel.”
Too good to be true? Not this time.
“This will be the golden year for me," Carman said.
So what's next for Carman? She said she loves her job at Walmart and does not plan on quitting, but may cut back on her hours.
Then, she hopes to buy a home and live close to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Most importantly, Carman hopes the community will recognize how far an act of kindness from a stranger can go and inspire others to pay it forward, even if it's just sharing a smile.

Special for The Republic
The footprint of Peralta Regional Park isn’t visible from the access road. That was the idea.
The master plan for the Pinal County Park that’s scheduled to open on Jan. 12, 2023, leaned heavily into shareholder input that advocated for a minimally disruptive footprint and preservation of the natural landscape.
“The less development, the better,” Kent Taylor, director of Pinal County Open Space and Trails, said of the input received from stakeholders.
Preconstruction feedback from government agencies and trail users including bikers, hikers and equestrians helped ensure that park planners thought of everything.
“A couple of things that we never considered came out of our conversations with stakeholders,” Taylor said. “First was an idea for stargazing which we incorporated into the plans with a trail and stargazing node.
"Second, the potential for rock climbing came up and that will be addressed in the park’s future phase 2 planning.”
What to expect at Peralta Regional Park
Occupying a natural pocket of upper Sonoran Desert at the edge of the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest a few miles north of U.S. 60 near Gold Canyon, the site is a unique outdoor recreation hub that straddles the gap between an amenity-rich park and a bare-bones backcountry experience.
Roads are dirt, and picnic and camping sites are simple and designed with profiles and colors that blend into the landscape. There’s no electricity or water.
“The park is 500 acres, but only 22 acres were disturbed for construction,” Taylor said. “We used existing dirt roads where possible and didn’t want to overdevelop.”
Extra care was taken to preserve native vegetation and soils as well.
“We harvested 100 saguaros during construction. Eighty of those were replanted in the park and another 20 were given to Tonto National Forest to use in forest restoration projects. Disturbed ground was restored and planted with native seeds," Taylor said.
Right on the edge of the Superstition Mountains and Tonto National Forest
The surrounding desert has long been a popular destination for outdoor recreation. The new park sits just a few clicks down Peralta Road (Forest Road 77) from the Lost Goldmine Trail, Carney Springs trailhead and Peralta trailhead — a busy jumping-off point for the Peralta Canyon, Dutchmans and Bluff Spring trails in the Superstition Mountains.
Camping in Peralta Regional Park embraces the low-impact theme. “Glamping” it’s not. There are no RV accommodations or cabins. Only tents are allowed. There are two types of tent camping opportunities to appeal to those in search of a roughing-it experience with the comfort of being within a managed space with a nearby site host and rangers in case of an emergency.
The choices are simple or primitive. Traditional car-camping sites are drive-up clearings with a picnic table and fire pit. Hike-in backpacking sites are accessed from nonmotorized trails and are no more than small clearings where pack-hanger posts are the only luxury afforded. There is no electricity, water or trash service, so campers must pack in what they need and pack out all waste.
All camp and picnic sites have easy access to 9 miles of nonmotorized trails and a quarter-mile barrier-free interpretive walking path.
“Even in a compact space we were able to build trails with good diversity from easy to difficult,” Taylor said.
Except for the Desperado and North Star trails, which have some difficult sections, park trails are rated moderate and link up nicely for creating loop options.
Stargazing will be a big draw at Peralta Regional Park
The park’s shiny penny is its stargazing node. Equal parts vortex, sanctuary and educational launch pad, the tiny gathering place is tucked into a natural bowl-like amphitheater with big sky views. The science-centered node features a circular sitting area with directional posts and room for telescopes.
A short trail leads to the cliff-bound site that flanks a tree-cluttered wash. It’s a beautiful little spot that oozes as much spirituality as it does science.
While it's not yet designated an official International Dark-Sky Association location, certification work is on the agenda. Taylor, who has camped in the area, says nights here are free of light pollution and extraneous sound, so stars, planets and galaxies will really pop against the inky darkness.
“We anticipate a lot of interest in night sky viewing here as well as requests for weddings, which can be arranged by permit,” Taylor said.
When asked if there’s going to be a prize for the first person to site a UFO, Taylor laughed.
“We hadn’t thought of that.”
