Vancouver, B.C. (Oct 17, 2022)First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) (“First Energy” or the “Company) is pleased to announce results of Phase 2 exploration program drill holes LC21-33 to 37 at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC21-35 intersected a 11.20-meter-wide zone with 0.91 percent (%) lithium oxide (Li2O) at 146 metres (m), including a 5 m zone with 1.03% Li2O at 146 m and 3.2 m with 1% Li2O at 154 m. This drill hole also has a lower seven meters wide zone with 0.54% Li2O at 165m drilled depth and several other smaller intercepts with variable lithium grades (see Table 2 for details).

Highlights

  • Drill hole LC 21-33 intersected two zones; a 13.20-meter-wide zone with 0.08% Li2O at 2.7 m, and a 59.2- meters- wide zone with 0.07% Li2O at 34.8 m drilled depth.
  • Drill hole LC 21-34 intersected two zones; a 11.73-meter-wide zone with 0.09% Li2O at 1.7 m, and a 75.3- meters- wide zone with 0.08% Li2O at 67.63 m drilled depth including a one-meter section of 1.49% Li2O at 81 m.
  • The drill hole LC21-35 intersected a 11.20-meter-wide zone with 0.91 % Li2O at 146 m, including a 5 m zone with 1.03% Li2O at 146 m and 3.2 m with 1% Li2O at 154 m.There is another seven meters wide zone with 0.54% Li2O at 165 m drilled depth including 2.06% Li2O over one meter at 169 m. This drill hole also intercepted several smaller intercepts with variable grades as shown in Table 2.
  • Drill hole LC 21-36 intersected two weakly anomalous zones; a 9.8-meter-wide zone with 0.05% Li2O at 171 m, and a 7.5- meters- wide zone with 0.04% Li2O at 198 m drilled depth.
  • Drill hole LC 21-37 intersected multiple weakly anomalous zones with widths in the range of 3 to 10 metres and 0.06-0.09% Li2O. This is the only drill hole completed at the Valor prospect.

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.

To date a total of 41 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.
