FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFD) is pleased to announce results of Drill Hole LC22-40 from Phase 2 exploratory drill program at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC21-40 intersected a 4.95-meter-wide lithium pegmatite with average 1.49% lithium oxide (Li2O) at 189.6m drilled depth (see Table 1 for details).
Another drill hole LC22-41 which completed at the main Augustus pegmatite did not intersect any significant lithium pegmatite. This hole was drilled approximately 500 m up dip from the main pegmatite with the aim to explore potential buried sub parallel pegmatites to the main trend as well as to hit the main zone. All intercepts reported are based on drilled widths and have not been converted to the true width. The results of remaining one drill hole from Phase 2 drill program are pending.
The drill core is logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. For quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), field duplicates, standards and blanks are being inserted at industry standard intervals.
The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories, Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses using laboratories code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2) as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
Afzaal Pirzada, P.Geo., Geological Consultant of the Company, and a “Qualified Person” for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has reviewed and approved the scientific and technical information contained in this news release.
About FE Battery Metals Corp
