Vancouver, B.C. (November 8, 2022) – FE Battery Metals Corp.. (CSE: FE) (“FE Battery Metals” or the “Company) is pleased to announce results of Drill Hole LC22-39 from Phase 2 exploratory drill program at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC21-39 intersected three lithium pegmatites with the main 7.3 m wide pegmatite zone averaged 1.54% lithium oxide (Li2O) at 188.7m drilled depth (see Table 1 for details).
- The upper lithium pegmatite is 5.28m wide with 0.70% Li2O, or 3,262 parts per million (ppm) lithium (Li) at 166m drilled depth.
- The middle pegmatite is 3.69m wide with 1.44% Li2O (6,680 ppm Li) at 175.31m drilled depth.
- The lower main pegmatite is 7.3m wide with 1.54% Li2O (7,163 ppm Li) at 188.7m drilled depth.
- There are anomalous values of other rare metals in all pegmatite zones with average 209 ppm beryllium, 35 ppm cesium, 84 ppm niobium, 707 ppm rubidium, and 91 ppm tantalum.
- The drill hole LC22-39 was drilled at location 5367979.089N, 287202.342E, UTM NAD 1983 Zone 18N, at azimuth 222.33 degrees and dip -50.11. The drill hole was placed at the main Augustus zone.
All intercepts reported are based on drilled widths and have not been converted to the true width. The results of remaining drill holes from Phase 2 drill program are pending.
The drill program is based on the historical and 2021 Phase 1 exploration data, and the Company’s surface trenching and sampling program results. Several historical drill hole collars were also located on the Property which helped in location and orientation of drill holes for the current program. The Drill program is contracted to Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos, Quebec. A B-20 drill rig is deployed for this work which has a capacity to drill up to 1,000-meter-deep hole. 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. To date a total of 42 drill holes with a cumulative core drilling of over 7,500 m has been completed on the Property. The drill core is being logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. 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 laboratories code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2) as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
