Foremost Lithium Resource & Technology Ltd. has announced it has contracted EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (“EarthEx“) to perform an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, (“UAV“) magnetic survey to be flown at its Zoro and Grass River Claim (“GRC“) Lithium Projects near the historic mining district of Snow Lake, Manitoba commencing in March, 2022.
EarthEx was selected by Foremost Lithium as it has repeatedly demonstrated a track-record of finding new prospective drill targets with precision and high-resolution utilizing UAV more commonly known as a drone, or aircrafts without any human pilot, crew or passengers on board. Just recently the Company’s neighbor, Snow Lake Resources Ltd. announced its successful first results from their very own UAV magnetic surveys on February 15, 2022 on the adjacent Sherritt Gordon asset.
Foremost’s Lithium’s survey will be comprised of 4,066 line-km providing 100% coverage over both the Zoro and GRC lithium properties. The survey will be flown at 25 metre line-spacing, with 250 metre spaced tie-lines. It is estimated the total work will take approximately 4 weeks to complete with the final interpretation scheduled to be delivered 6 weeks thereafter.
Scott Taylor, President and CEO of Foremost Lithium, states: “We continue to operate and work for our shareholders by leveraging the highest quality technology to find more lithium drill targets. EarthEx flew the exact same UAV magnetic survey for us in December 2021 over 100% of the Company’s Jean Lake Lithium Project where the high-grade lithium Beryl pegmatite dyke was re-discovered in August of 2021. Assay results from two locations on the Jean Lake Beryl pegmatites gave a range of 3.89-5.17% lithium (Li2O). Foremost is scheduled to receive the final interpretation of the Jean Lake results next week. We are anxious to release these results to the public as we will have the first look into the sub-surface at Jean Lake and determine quantity of potential drill targets. We are using this technology to define the 3D location, shape, size, and distribution of potential spodumene rich pegmatite dykes. This technology together with Mobile Metal Irons surface geochemistry work is how The Company is building an inventory of de-risked, high-quality drill targets on each of its three lithium properties located in the Snow Lake Mining District of Manitoba. We will now fly this technology to ensure we have 100% coverage over all of our Snow Lake Lithium Projects and build the maximum inventory for drilling in the Winter of 2022.”
Daniel Card, President of EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc., adds: “We are delighted to be working with Foremost Lithium on what is a very exciting and promising lithium project. We are thrilled with the effectiveness with which known pegmatites and new targets are being mapped in the data and we are proud to provide Foremost Lithium with such an effective exploration tool. We are particularly encouraged by the amount of data being acquired in the Snow Lake District, as this enhances the reliability of our work in this specific geological setting.“
