VANCOUVER, BC, April 10, 2023 /CNW/ - FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFF) (WKN: A2JC89) ("FE Battery Metals" or the "Company) is pleased to announce results of Drill Hole LC23-50 from the current 2023 drill program at its flagship Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. Drill hole LC23-50 intersected multiple sections of lithium mineralization, including a 17.45-metre-wide section of 1.19 percent lithium oxide (Li2O) at 82.4 m drilled depth.

This new drill hole was cored to test the eastward extension of LC21-16, which previously yielded results of 1.17% Li2O over 19m at a depth of 126m. The results of LC23-50 better allow us to understand the geometry of one of the main higher-grade lithium pegmatite zone. The Company is planning both follow-up drilling and 3D modelling of the lithium-bearing rock units.


  • The main lithium pegmatite zone (pegmatite intercept 4) in Hole LC23-50 is 17.45 m wide with average 5,558 parts per million (ppm) lithium (Li) or 1.19% Li2O at 82.4m drilled depth. In addition, there are anomalous values of other rare metals in this section such as beryllium (Be), cesium (Cs), niobium (Nb), and tantalum (Ta).

  • Drill Hole LC23-50 intersected eight lithium pegmatite intercepts as follows:

Drill hole LC23-50 was drilled at location 5367757.986 N, 287214.019E, UTM NAD 1983 Zone 18N, at azimuth 51.3 degrees and dip -49.4 with a drilled depth of 252 m. The drill hole was placed at the main Augustus zone.

Gurminder Sangha, CEO & Director, stated, "We are very excited to see such promising drill results at Augustus and are currently endeavouring to define the size and shape of the high-grade zones. With Quebec now a hard rock lithium hotspot, this is a significant milestone for our company. We look forward to further unlocking the potential of Augustus, which is located just a few kilometres from the now-operational North American Lithium Mine."

The drill core is logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. A core shack is built at the village of St-Dominique du Rosaire located about 50km from the Property for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage. 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 laboratory code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2) as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
