First Energy Metals Drills Two Intercepts of 1.76 and 1.18 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 5.6- and 6.12-meters in Dril Hole LC21-29 at Augustus Lithium Property

 

 

 

 

 

First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) is pleased to announce results of drill hole LC21-29 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole intercepted two lithium pegmatites where the top intercept is 1.18 percent (%) lithium oxide over 6.12 metres at 148.48 metres (m) drilled depth, and the lower intercept is 1.76% Li2O over 5.6 metres at 158.4 metres drilled depth. Bothe mineralized intercepts are only 4.2 meters apart from each other. There are anomalous values of other rare metals including niobium (Nb), rubidium (Rb), tantalum (Ta), beryllium (Be), and cesium (Cs) (see Table 1 for details).

 

Highlights

 

Upper Intercept (Total 6.12 m from 148.48m to 154.6m)

  • Lithium oxide values are in the range of 0.65% to 2.41% Li2O with an average of 1.18% Li2O over 6.12 m.
  • Beryllium is in the range of 87 parts per million (ppm) to 204 ppm.
  • Cesium is in the range of 29 ppm to 94 ppm.
  • Niobium is in the range of 75.4 ppm to 143.7 ppm.
  • Rubidium is in the range of 354 ppm to 1,820 ppm.
  • Tantalum is in the range of 49.6 ppm to 110 ppm.

 

Lower Intercept (Total 5.6 m from 158.4m to 164 m)

  • Lithium oxide values are in the range of 0.23% to 2.80% Li2O with an average of 1.76% Li2O over 5.6 m.
  • Beryllium is in the range of 151 ppm to 441 ppm.
  • Cesium is in the range of 30.8 ppm to 69.2 ppm.
  • Niobium is in the range of 72.1 ppm to 101.5 ppm.
  • Rubidium is in the range of 127 ppm to 1,430 ppm.
  • Tantalum is in the range of 68.8 ppm to 100 ppm.

 

Drill hole LC21-29 was drilled at location: 287182.82E, 5367943.92N (NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N), Azimuth 205.35 degrees, Dip -50.4 degrees with a total drilled depth of 291m. All intersections reported are based on drilled width and have not been converted to the true width.

 

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.

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 well thought out work plan on the property which includes diamond drilling, metallurgical testwork to produce battery grade lithium carbonate, and resource estimation. To date, 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 Property during 1950s. Several drill hole results indicated intersections over 1% lithium oxide.”.
