First Energy Metals starts drill program
April 9, 2021 | By Maryam Farag
First Energy Metals Ltd. announced the commencement of a 2021 drill program at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec.
Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos has been contracted for a 5,000 metre NQ size core drill program, which can be increased at the company’s request. A B-20 drill rig has been deployed for this work, which has a capacity to drill up to 1,000m deep hole.
The drill program is based on the company’s surface trenching and sampling program, which is currently underway. The field sampling work confirmed historically reported spodumene bearing lithium pegmatites on the Augustus and Canadian Lithium prospects on the property.
The current drill program, if successful, will enable to complete a maiden NI 43-101 lithium resource estimates on the property.
“We are looking forward to the success of the current drilling program on the Augustus Property,” said Gurminder Sangha, CEO, First Energy Metals. “This will be a step forward to confirm historical drill hole results along with working toward completion of a NI 43-101 and CIM compliant resource estimates for the property”.
