FIRST ENERGY METALS ACQUIRES FALCON LAKE LITHIUM PROPERTY IN NORTHWESTERN ONTARIO, CANADA

First Energy Metals Limited Jan 12, 2022, 05:00 ET

VANCOUVER, BC, Jan. 12, 2022 /CNW/ - First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) ("First Energy" or the "Company) is pleased is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire a lithium exploration property located in the Thunder Bay Mining Division Northwestern Ontario, Canada. The Falcon Lake Lithium Property consists of 48 mining claims covering approximately 960 hectares land located approximately 325 km North-northeast of Thunder Bay, and 75 km northeast of Armstrong, Ontario. The Property contains three spodumene bearing lithium pegmatite occurrences which were explored historically since the 1950s period. Lithium is the primary mineralization of interest in these pegmatites along with other rare metals such as beryllium, cesium, rubidium, niobium and tantalum.

Flacon Lake Lithium Property Highlights

  • The Property hosts Mineral Deposit Inventory ("MDI") lithium occurrences as recorded on Ontario Mining Land Administration System and other sources on ODM Map 2100 by Pye (1968) which include Falcon Lake Discovery (MDI52I08NE00012), Falcon Lake West (MDI52I08NE00009) and Falcon Lake East (MDI52I08NE00013).
  • The first reported work on the Property was completed in 1956 by British Canadian Lithium Mines Ltd. ("BCLM") on the Discovery, Falcon West and Falcon East occurrences (Darling, 1962). A total of 22 diamond drill holes for approximately 1,658.57 metres (5,441.5 ft) were drilled amongst the three showings. The 1956 diamond drilling outlined pegmatite zones to a depth of approximately 37 vertical metres (121 ft) from surface. Highlights of this drilling include 1.09% lithium (Li) over 10.97 m (36.0 ft) and 0.41% Li over 24.72 m (81.1 ft) from hole W-9 in the West zone and 1.13% Li over 4.91 m (16.1 ft) from hole E-4 in the East zone.
  • Canadian Ore Bodies acquired the Property and carried out geological mapping along with litho-geochemical sampling, trenching, channel sampling and diamond drilling during 2009-11 period. Highlights of the exploration work results are provided below (also see Tables 1-3):
    • In December of 2010, a total of 3 NQ size holes for 263.10 metres were completed and all three drill holes intersected the showing at depth. A strike length of approximately 75 metres, a down dip continuity of approximately 60 metres and an average true width of approximately 7 metres was estimated from drilling. An average grade of 1.045% lithium oxide (Li2O) was calculated from drill results. Drilling returned up to 1.10% Li2O over 11.00 metres in hole CO-10-003 and the zone is open to depth. The southern extension of the zone was also confirmed on surface where sample H467554 returned 1,290 ppm Li from a pegmatite outcrop approximately 100 metres south of hole CO-10-002 (Table 1).
    • Of the 30 grab samples taken, four returned analyses greater than 10,000 ppm Li (2.26% to 2.82% Li2O), along with associated anomalous beryllium, cesium, gallium, niobium, rubidium and tantalum results. Six of the remaining 26 samples returned anomalous lithium results greater than 1,000 ppm (Table 2).
    • The channel sampling program confirmed economic lithium tenor along the entire approximately 75 metre strike length of the Falcon Lake West occurrence. Sample highlights include seven samples ranging between 10,438 ppm Li to 14,800 ppm Li, 2.25% Li2O and 3.19% Li2O, respectively. Channel samples returned 1.537% Li2O over 6.98 m from channel #3 and 1.427% Li2O over 2.87 m from channel #12, with anomalous beryllium, cesium, gallium, niobium, rubidium, tin and tantalum. Channel samples from the Falcon Lake East showing returned up to 0.441% Li2O over 1.97 m from channel #16, with anomalous beryllium, cesium, gallium, niobium, rubidium, tin and tantalum. The highest single sample taken returned 5,290 ppm lithium, 1.14% Li2O (Table 3).
Statement: Investors are cautioned that the above information is taken from the publicly available sources. The Company has not been able to independently verify the information contained. The information is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on the Property, which is the subject of this news release.
