WINNIPEG, MB / ACCESSWIRE / April 12, 2022 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) ("Snow Lake" or the "Company"), is proud to announce the receipt of a grant from the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund for the amount of CAD $157,500 to help fund the ongoing winter drilling campaign.
The previous grant from the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund of $62,000 ( Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. Receives Government Grant for CAD $62,000 ) was utilized in the ongoing geophysics drone campaign ( Snow Lake Lithium's First Results from Drone Mag Survey Identify Multiple Anomalies and Prospective Targets on Sherritt Gordon ) that is proving extremely beneficial in identifying additional pegmatites across the 86 square mile property. The current drilling campaign has included three drills operating 24/7 ( Snow Lake Announces Significant Progress Update for Winter Drilling Campaign ) across the original resource at Thompson Brothers as well as the outside targets at Grass Rivers, BYP and Sherritt Gordon. The strategy is to expand the existing resource while identifying additional resources that will serve as a starter pit for commercial mining.
The new grant will assist with costs relating to the next phase of the drilling campaign as we transition from ice roads to helicopter drilling over the spring and summer months. With the current resource standing at 11.1 million metric tonnes indicated and inferred resource at 1% Li2O and a ten-year mine life, the ambition is now to multiply the resource and extend the mine life by decades. Snow Lake has been assisted in these efforts by Quesnel Bros. Diamond Drilling Ltd. of Denare Beach, Saskatchewan; Forage BRL Drilling of Temagami, Ontario; and Heli Source Ltd. based in Snow Lake, Manitoba.

Concurrently, Snow Lake continues to progress the environmental, engineering and feasibility programs in order to achieve the necessary milestones for commercial production.
Chuck Davidson, President & CEO of the Manitoba Chamber of Commerce, and Chair of the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund commented "Snow Lake Lithium is reinvigorating and redefining the mining industry in Manitoba by facilitating the progression from traditional mining to a new era of environmentally conscious extraction that will help our industry grow into the next century in a sustainable fashion. Philip Gross and his team have demonstrated a strong commitment to ESG principals and to ensuring that Manitoba can play a critical role today in making for a better tomorrow. On behalf of Manitoba, we are proud to once again collaborate and help support Snow Lake achieve production."
Philip Gross CEO of Snow Lake Lithium further commented "We are incredibly grateful to the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund Board of Directors for their further recognition and support of our project. We remain committed to Manitoba and its ideals of a green future and a sustainable economy. Manitoba is the perfect geographic location in North America to benefit from the electrification of the automobile fleet, with its abundance of natural resources, access to clean energy, state of the art logistics, infrastructure and a motivated populace. We look forward to an incredibly promising future in Manitoba and Canada as we continue this journey to a fully electric, fully renewable future."
