FIRST ENERGY IDENTIFIES MORE LITHIUM EXPLORATION TARGETS FROM SURFACE SAMPLING PROGRAM IN QUEBEC

Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 3, 2022 /CNW/ – First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) (“First Energy” or the “Company) is pleased to announce that it has received assays from its summer prospecting work program which was carried on the newly acquired claim block on March 22, 2022, see below link for further details.
https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/first-energy-metals-adds-prospective-ground-to-its-existing-lithium-footprint-in-quebec-886834748.html 

The work identified several prospective lithium pegmatites with assays in the range of 0.01 to 6.02% lithium oxide (Li2O). There are anomalous values of other rare metals including niobium, tantalum, rubidium and cesium.

Highlights of Assays (see Table 1 and Map for details)
  • Area 1 has lithium oxide values in the range of 0.01 to 6.02% Li2O with two samples over 1% Li2O.
  • Area 2 has lithium oxide values in the range of 0.02 to 2.19% Li2O with eight samples over 1% Li2O.
  • Area 3 has generally low lithium oxide values in the range of 0.01 to 0.02% Li2O.
  • Area 4 has lithium oxide values in the range of 0.01 to 0.04% Li2O.

The prospecting and sampling work was carried out during the summer months and its purpose was to find new exploration targets, to locate and confirm historical reported lithium pegmatite occurrences, and to locate historical drill holes if present. The ground sampling work was continuous concluded at the end of September and more surface sample results will be released as soon as available.

Drilling Update

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has completed additional 1,000 meters of diamond core drilling at the Augustus property. The drill holes are being logged and an update on the drilling work will be provided in a subsequent news release.

Sample Preparation and Analysis

The surface sampling was carried out using a rock saw and other hand tools by cutting about 20-30 cm long, 5 cm wide and 3-5 cm deep cuts in bedrock. 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 as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.  

Code Ultratrace 7 – Peroxide Fusion – ICP and ICP/MS

Samples are fused with sodium peroxide in a Zirconium crucible. The fused sample is acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The resulting solutions are diluted and then measured by ICP-OES and ICP-MS. All metals are solubilized.

ICP-MS
Fused samples are diluted and analyzed by Agilent 7900 ICP-MS. Calibration is performed using five synthetic calibration standards. A set of (10-20) fused certified reference material is run with every batch of samples for calibration and quality control. Fused duplicates are run every 10 samples.

ICP-OES
Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials for the required analytes, all prepared by sodium peroxide fusion. Every 10th sample is prepared and analyzed in duplicate; a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed. Samples are analyzed using a Varian 735ES ICP and internal standards are used as part of the standard operating procedure. Source: https://actlabs.com/geochemistry/lithogeochemistry-and-whole-rock-analysis/peroxide-total-fusion/
