First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) is pleased to announce results of Phase 2 exploration program drill holes LC21-33 to 37 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC21-35 intersected a 11.20-meter-wide zone with 0.91 percent lithium oxide at 146 metres, including a 5 m zone with 1.03% Li2O at 146 m and 3.2 m with 1% Li2O at 154 m. This drill hole also has a lower seven meters wide zone with 0.54% Li2O at 165m drilled depth and several other smaller intercepts with variable lithium grades (see Table 2 for details).
Table 1: Drill Hole Details
|Drill Hole ID||Prospect||Location (NAD 1983,
|Dip (deg)||Total Drilled Depth (m)|
|LC21-33||Beluga / Canadian Lithium||284891E, 5368350N||257||-51||261|
|LC21-34||Beluga / Canadian Lithium||284891E, 5368350N||257||-81||213|
All intercepts reported are based on drilled widths and have not been converted to the true width. The results of remaining drill holes from Phase 2 drill program are pending.
To date a total of 41 drill holes with a cumulative core drilling of over 7,500 m has been completed on the Property. The drill core is being logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. For quality control and quality assurance, 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.
