Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 8, 2022) – Above all Lithium Resource & Technology Ltd. (CSE: FAT) (OTCQB: FRRSF) (FSE: F0R0) (WKN: A3DCC8) (www.foremostlithium.com) (“First of all lithium, first of all or the Company“) is pleased to announce that it has commenced exploration which will lay the groundwork for a diamond drilling program on its 100% owned Jean Lake Lithium property located in the Snow Lake mining district of Manitoba. The first step in this process includes mobilizing field crews to their 1,002 hectare/2,476 acre property where high beryl pegmatite dykes containing spodumene with assays of 3.89% and 5.17% Li2O were discovered in August 2021 (see press release of October 28, 2021). Field work will be organized from a base in Snow Lake with helicopter support from Gogal Air Services.
Two field teams will begin the follow-up survey of fourteen (14) high priority targets defined as magnetically weak and structurally recessive lineaments. These lineaments host the beryl pegmatites, are partially aligned with the SGM and Grass River lithium pegmatites of Snow Lake Resources and are interpreted as high priority exploration targets. The lineaments were defined by a high-resolution geophysical survey assisted by an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV drone) and a Targeted Exploration Center “CET” analysis of the acquired data (see press release dated March 1, 2022). The survey was carried out by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (Selkirk, Manitoba) with financial support from the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund.
Lineaments will be prospected and rock chips sampled and analyzed for lithium and related elements where exposure is permissive. Where lineaments are covered by overburden, Mobile Metal Ion (“MMI”) soil geochemical surveys will be initiated. The rock and soil geochemical data will be reported in a subsequent press release and ultimately integrated with the magnetic survey results to form the basis for the drill tests.
Dyke 1 Mini Bulk Sample
A field team will also be dispatched to the Zoro Lithium project at Snow Lake to acquire a 500 kg bulk sample from the Dyke 1 trench surface exposure on the Zoro lithium property. Dyke 1 contains 1,074,567 tonnes at 0.91% Li2O, 182 ppm Be, 198 ppm Cs, 51 ppm Ga, 1212 Rb and 43 ppm Ta at 0.3% Li2O cut.1 The sample will be used for the development of a spodumene concentrate and its subsequent refining into a marketable battery-grade lithium hydroxide product. The Company engaged XPS Expert Process Solutions in conjunction with SGS Canada Inc. to undertake sample processing. (see press release of May 26, 2022). The results are expected within three months.
John Gravelle, of the First States, “We are pleased to announce that teams are currently on the ground at Jean Lake evaluating the 14 identified priority drill targets. Past magnetic interpretation showed that our beryl pegmatites, which assayed 3.89% and 5.17% Li2O, followed the Snow Lake Lithium high SG and GRP pegmatites and GRP pegmatites. This association, together with boots in the field, to ensure the accuracy of our objectives, has generated great enthusiasm. We are so encouraged by the potential of this property that the company now plans to run two teams operating separate drills simultaneously. » Jean Gravelle continues, “We also look forward to results from Zoro’s Dyke1 bulk sample, as this crucial catalyst, proving 6% battery-grade lithium hydroxide will be a milestone and thus help propel shareholder value. as we market potential batteries. major manufacturers and partners, worldwide.
