First Energy Metals Drills 1.12 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 7 Meters in Drill Hole LC-21-09 at Augustus Lithium Property

 

 

 

 

 

First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) is pleased to announce results of drill hole LC21-09 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole intersected a 39 meters spodumene pegmatite in which a 7-meter-wide zone assayed 1.12 percent lithium oxide (Li2O) at 11 metres drilled depth. The Company is also pleased to announce commencement of Phase 2 drill program on December 6 at the Property by Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos, Quebec. The drilling company completed 5,847.15 Phase 1 drilling on the Property and is again contracted for this work.

 

Highlights (see Table 1 for details)

  • A 39 metres wide spodumene pegmatite intersection (from 7 to 46 m drilled depth) with average 0.17 % lithium (Li) or 0.37% Li2O. There are four higher grade intersections included within this wider pegmatite as listed below.
    • Seven-meter wide spodumene pegmatite zone with 1.12% Li2O at 11 m drilled depth.
    • Two-meter wide spodumene pegmatite zone with 0.90% Li2O at 22 m drilled depth.
    • Two-meter wide spodumene pegmatite zone with 0.74% Li2O at 26 m drilled depth.
    • Two-meter wide spodumene pegmatite zone with 0.31% Li2O at 44 m drilled depth.

 

Drill hole LC21-09 was drilled at Canadian Lithium / Beluga Prospect, UTM location: 284822E, 5368321N (NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N), Azimuth 48.2 degrees, Dip -44.2 degrees with a total drilled depth of 147 m. All intersections reported are based on drilled width and have not been converted to the true width. The drill core was logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. For quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), field duplicates, standards and blanks were inserted at industry standard intervals. The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories (“ACTLABS”), Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses using laboratories code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2). ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.

 

For the Phase 2 drill program, a B-20 drill rig has been deployed which has a capacity to drill up to 1,000-meter-deep hole. The core shack built during Phase 1 drilling at the village of St-Dominique du Rosaire located about 50km from the Property will be used for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage.
