MANITOBA, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / February 1, 2022 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) ("Snow Lake" or the "Company"), has engaged SLR Consulting Canada ( https://www.slrconsulting.com ) to complete an Initial Assessment (IA) and Technical Report Summary (TRS) of Snow Lake's Lithium Properties per the S-K 1300 standard of disclosure.
The IA is an introductory engineering study which will provide critical information and framework leading into a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS).

In June 2021 Frank Hrdy of CanMine Consultants provided the Company a completed Technical Report to the NI 43-101 standard of disclosure. This report was dated June 10, 2021 (The Technical Report). The Technical Report was later reviewed by SLR and CanMine to provide the Company with a Report converted to the S-K 1300 TRS standard of disclosure.
SLR was also engaged (See Dec 15 2021: Snow Lake Lithium Engages SLR on Environmental Baseline Program) to provide the Company with the parameters for a baseline environmental study that will be conducted over the following next two year. Data collected during the baseline study will become the foundation of the environmental permitting process with the Province of Manitoba.
CEO Philip Gross stated, "We are very excited to further this relationship with SLR and have them lead this undertaking in delivering our Initial Assessment. This is the first step towards our Pre-Feasibility study and ultimately our Definitive Feasibility Study. SLR have demonstrated not only a dedication towards professional excellence but a unique understanding of lithium and a strong familiarity with the province. We look forward to working with them to facilitate our accelerated trajectory in building North America's first full renewable and fully electric lithium mine."
Jason Cox, IA project lead for SLR stated "With the rising demand for lithium in the world, and the increasing scrutiny on the carbon footprint of the raw materials in manufacturing, Snow Lake's potential to provide carbon free, conflict free lithium by operating a fully electric lithium mine running on renewable power is a fantastic opportunity we are eager to be a part of."
