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 update the market on the winter 2022 drilling campaign. With the snow roads completed, the drill company (QB Drilling) was able to mobilize the first drill into position on the 28th of January 2022. Initial drilling is focused on the maiden resource at our Thompson Brothers Lithium (TBL) project to extend the strike and depth. On the first hole (TBL-025), Snow Lake Lithium intersected 19.8 meters core length (~14 meters true width) of lithium bearing pegmatite that contains between 20 to 25% spodumene from 21.0 to 40.8 meters (See Photo 1.0 and 2.0). This is 76.6 meters North-East step out 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 the crystallization continues along strike and represents a 10% increase in the strike from results produced under the previous drill program. Additionally of note, the spodumene occurs close to surface (~30 meters) which would suggest that the spodumene would be amenable to open pit mining in the future.
Dale Schultz VP of Exploration commented "Getting a winter drilling campaign up and running in minus 30 to minus 40 degree Celsius weather conditions always poses unique challenges, and we have managed it accordingly. It is incredibly affirming that we have hit spodumene in the very first hole and provides confirmation of our understanding of the resource. We have stepped out significantly from the maiden resource boundaries along strike and finding this much spodumene at this distance would suggest that the geological trend continues considerably."
Philip Gross CEO also commented "Dale and his team have done tremendous work mobilizing a campaign in a very short period of time. In just under 45 days they have managed to get permits in place, ice roads completed and drills spinning. It is very exciting to convert our theoretical comprehension of the geology into actual hard data and it's a credit to the team members who have spent the past two years analyzing the data in preparation. This intersect provides instant validation of our assumptions that TBL remains open at depth and on strike, and this represents just one of a wide swarm of dykes contained on our property. We are also very enthusiastic about getting the drills out to the Sherrit Gordon dykes, which have had multiple historical pegmatite hits. We look forward to continued success on all fronts."
