WINNIPEG, MB / ACCESSWIRE / March 10, 2022 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) ("Snow Lake" or the "Company") today provided an update on the excellent progress of its winter drilling program that began with a previously announced successful first hole ( January 31, 2022 - Snow Lake Extends Strike by 10% in First Hole of Winter Drilling Campaign ).
Snow Lake's 2022 drilling campaign was designed for further property development with the expansion of defined resources and identification of additional outside targets. Initial indications suggest that the campaign is successfully executing and improving upon the outlined goals.
Snow Lake's initial drill on the Thompson Brothers resource delivered highly favorable results despite a slightly delayed start due to winter conditions. The following intercepts were of note (Table 1):

Currently, there are three drills ( Feburary 2, 2022 - Snow Lake Lithium Contracts Additional Drill to Project After Extending the Strike Zone on First Hole ) operating 24/7 on site including the previously announced drill dedicated to the Sherritt Gordon (SGP) and Grass Rivers (GRP) pegmatite formations ( December 06, 2021 - Snow Lake Resources Ltd. Samples up to 6.97 WT% Li 2 O from Its Manitoba Project ). This week, all three drills have returned spodumene-bearing intersections in their current locations (Figure 1).

- Drill hole TBL-035 returned an intersection of spodumene bearing pegmatite from 422.12 m to 447.47 m, totaling 25.35 m. (Photo 1).
- Drill hole BYP-001 returned an intersection from 10.55m to 20.00 m (9.45 m, Photo 2).
- Drill hole GRP-001, an exploration hole on previously undrilled ground, returned 2 intercepts from 34.8 m to 40.48 m, and 41.86 m to 44.22 m for a total intersection of 8.04 m (Photo 3).
All samples have been and will continue to be forwarded to SGS' Lakefield laboratory for analysis ( December 20, 2021 - Snow Lake Lithium Engages SGS for Metallurgical Testing ).
Following the early success of the Company's winter drilling program, Snow Lake has committed to retain all on-site drills with airborne support to accelerate progress and resource expansion throughout the upcoming spring and summer.
"The success of our drilling program to date provides critical validation of our ambitions of delivering a multi decade resource to market," Philip Gross, CEO of Snow Lake, commented "We could not have hoped for a better start to our drilling campaign and full credit is due to the dedication of our VP of Resource Development Dale Schultz and VP of Exploration Brian Youngs. With the anticipated expansion of the initial deposit at TBL, we now also have spodumene evidence of two additional target resources at GRP (Grass Rivers) and SGP (Sherritt Gordon) deposits. This further evidence will provide us with a tactical advantage of ultimately increasing our resource and providing optimal economic mining conditions. Due to these developments, we are now fully committed to extending our drilling campaign across the spring and summer and adjusting our near term preliminary feasibility study strategy and resource upgrade to accommodate the results of this program."
