First Energy Metals Drills 1.47 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 4 Meters at Augustus Lithium Property

 

 

 

 

 

First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFF) (WKN: A2JC89) is pleased to announce results of drill hole LC21-05 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. Drill hole LC21-05 was drilled at the Canadian Lithium Prospects, at location: 284773E, 5368325N (NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N), Azimuth 39.6 degrees, Dip 41.7 degrees with a total NQ size core drilling depth of 168m.

 

Drill Hole LC21-05 Highlights (see Table 1 for details)

 

  • A four-meter-wide zone with 1.47 percent (%) lithium oxide (Li2O) at 11.5 metres depth.
  • A three-meter-wide zone with 0.56% Li2O at 32m depth, including one-meter-wide zone with 1.14% Li2O at 33m depth.

 

Note: All intersections reported are based on drilled width and have not been converted to the true width.

 

The drill program is based on the historical exploration data and the Company’s surface trenching and sampling program which is currently underway. Several historical drill hole collars were also located on the Property which helped in location and orientation of drill holes for the current program. The Drill program commenced on April 5th at the Property by Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos, Quebec who is contracted for the drill program. A B-20 drill rig is deployed for this work which has a capacity to drill up to 1,000-meter-deep hole. A core shack is built at the village of St-Dominique du Rosaire located about 50km from the Property for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage. 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 and blanks are being inserted at an industry standard interval.

 

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.

 

Code Ultratrace 7 – Peroxide Fusion – ICP and ICP/MS

 

Samples are fused with sodium peroxide in a Zirconium crucible. The fused sample is acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The resulting solutions are diluted and then measured by ICP-OES and ICP-MS. All metals are solubilized.

 

ICP-MS

Fused samples are diluted and analyzed by Agilent 7900 ICP-MS. Calibration is performed using five synthetic calibration standards. A set of (10-20) fused certified reference material is run with every batch of samples for calibration and quality control. Fused duplicates are run every 10 samples.

 

ICP-OES

Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials for the required analytes, all prepared by sodium peroxide fusion. Every 10th sample is prepared and analyzed in duplicate; a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed. Samples are analyzed using a Varian 735ES ICP and internal standards are used as part of the standard operating procedure. Source: https://actlabs.com/geochemistry/lithogeochemistry-and-whole-rock-analysis/peroxide-total-fusion/

About the Augustus Lithium Property

 

The Company owns 100% interest in Augustus Lithium Property in Landrienne & Lacorne-Townships, Quebec, Canada. The Property consists of 271 mining claims covering a total area of 14,155 hectares located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of the town of Val d’Or on map sheets 32C/05 and 32D08. The Property claims are spread in several claim blocks optioned in 2021 from different vendors. The Company has prepared a work plan on the property which includes diamond drilling, metallurgical testwork to produce battery grade lithium carbonate, and resource estimation. The Company has compiled historical drill hole data on the Property for 74 historical dill holes with a cumulative drilling of 12,123.14 m, out which 6,024 m drilling was completed on the lithium prospects during 1950s. Several drill hole results indicated intersections over 1% lithium oxide.”
