First Energy Metals Drills 1.43 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 4.5 Meters at Augustus Lithium Property

 

 

 

 

 

First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) is pleased to announce results of drill hole LC21-14 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole intersected a 4.5-meter-wide zone with 1.43 percent (%) lithium oxide (Li2O) at 115.5 metres drilled depth. Drill hole LC21-14 was drilled at location: 287261.9E, 5367851.1N (NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N), Azimuth 218.55 degrees, Dip -45.6 degrees with a total drilled depth of 234m. All intersections reported are based on drilled width and have not been converted to the true width.

 

Highlights (see Table 1 for details)

 

  • Within the mineralized intersection, average lithium oxide values are in the range of 0.26% to 2.15% Li2O with an average of 1.43% Li2O over 4.5 metres at 115.5 metres.
  • Lithium (Li) values are in the range of 1,220 parts per million (ppm) to 10,000 ppm.
  • Beryllium (Be) is in the range of 67 ppm to 246 ppm, cesium (Cs) 12.8 ppm to 53 ppm, niobium (Nb) 5.7 ppm to 128.9 ppm, rubidium (Rb) 46.8 ppm to 446 ppm, and tantalum (Ta) 12.6 ppm 115 ppm.
  • The lithium pegmatite intersection has lower iron (Fe) values in the range of 0.41% to 0.58%.
  • There are smaller lower grade lithium pegmatites intersections listed below:
    • 0.6% Li2O over one meter at 107 m drilled depth.
    • 0.54% Li2O over one meter at 127.5 m drilled depth.

 

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.
