VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ – FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFF) (WKN: A2JC89) (“FE Battery Metals” or the “Company) is pleased to announce results of Drill Hole LC23-63 from the current 2023 drill program at its flagship Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada.
Drill hole LC23-63 was drilled at the main Augustus zone. In total, the drill hole intersected six separate lithium bearing zones, which, in total, have a composite length of 38.48 meters (see Highlights for individual zones).
New sampling of the host, or ‘wallrock’ in contact with the pegmatite bodies was found to contain lithium mineralization and that there is an observed correlation with higher lithium (Li), cesium (Cs), and rubidium (Rb) values to higher nickel and chromium values in these rocks.
Understanding the degree of the host rock mineralization could provide a useful guide for further exploration and resource building work at the project. If the host rock has been mineralizaed, likely by hydrothermal fluids, it may lead to a significant increase in potential lithium resource at the project. These lithium exomorphic halos are documented to extend from 2-5 m or more in the country rock in other lithium-pegmatite occurrences.
Drill hole LC23-63 was drilled at location 5367789.854N, 287162.594E, UTM NAD 1983 Zone 18N, at azimuth 52.6 degrees and dip -47.12 with a drilled depth of 308.35 m. The drill hole was placed at the main Augustus zone. All reported widths are drilled widths and have not been converted into true width.
Mr. Gurminder Sangha, CEO of FE Battery Metals stated that, “The Augustus main zone has returned solid results at every stage of exploration. Along with the mineralized swarm of pegmatites, we are excited about the discovery of high lithium, cesium and rubidium values in the wallrock hosting the pegmatites. This factor can change our exploration strategy and will need more assays. If successful this will add to the potential resource footprint.”
The drill core is logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. 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. For quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), field duplicates, standards and blanks are being inserted at industry standard intervals. The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories (“ACTLABS”), Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses using laboratory code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2) for lithium and 1E-Ag – Ag Aqua Regia – ICP-OES package for silver. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
