MANITOBA, CANADA /ACCESSWIRE/January 31, 2022/ Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) (“Snow Lake” or the “Company”), is pleased to inform the market of the winter 2022 drilling campaign. Upon completion of the snow roads, the drilling company (QB Drilling ) was able to mobilize the first drill into position on January 28, 2022. Initial drilling is focused on the first resource of our Thompson Brothers Lithium (TBL) project to extend strike and depth. In the first hole (TBL-025), Snow Lake Lithium intersected a 19.8 meter core length (~14 meters true thickness) of lithium-bearing pegmatite that contains between 20-25% spodumene of 21, 0 to 40.8 meters (see photo 1.0 and 2.0). This is a northeasterly step of 76.6 meters from the last known intersection captured by hole TBL-024 (Figure 2.0 and Figure 3.0) during the 2018 resource drilling campaign. This would indicate that crystallization continues along strike and represents a 10% increase in strike over results produced in the previous drill program. Additionally, it should be noted that the spodumene is found near the surface (~30 meters), suggesting that the spodumene would be amenable to surface mining in the future.
Dale Schultz, Vice President of Exploration, said, “Setting up a winter drilling campaign in minus 30 to minus 40 degrees Celsius weather always poses unique challenges, and we managed it accordingly. It’s incredibly assertive that we hit spodumene in the very first hole and confirms our understanding of the resource. We have moved considerably away from the early resource limits along the strike and finding so much spodumene at this distance would suggest that the geological trend is continuing considerably.
Philip Gross CEO also commented: “Dale and his team have done a tremendous job mobilizing a campaign in a very short time. In just under 45 days, they managed to get permits, complete ice roads and spin drills. It’s very exciting. to convert our theoretical understanding of the geology into real concrete data and it is a credit to the team members who have spent the last two years analyzing the data in preparation. This intersection provides instant validation of our assumptions that TBL remains open at depth and on strike, and this represents just one of many dyke swarms contained on our property. We are also very excited about getting the drills out of the Sherrit Gordon dykes, which have had multiple historical pegmatite hits. We look forward to continued success on all fronts.”
