WINNIPEG, MB / ACCESSWIRE / November 29, 2021 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) ("Snow Lake" or the "Company"), is pleased to provide an update on it's continuing progress in executing a strategic path to production. The company has received a grant from the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce, Manitoba Mineral Development Fund in the amount of $62,000 CAD to be utilized in support of our UAV drone magnetic survey that has been scheduled for mid-December and to be completed by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. of Selkirk, Manitoba.
Pegmatite exploration can be supported by magnetic mapping in numerous ways, including mapping of the structural fabric controlling the crystallization, as well as detection of contrasts in magnetic susceptibility with neighboring lithologies. A historic fixed wing SPECTREM survey in the area shows a correlation between the Thompson Brothers Lithium Deposit and a magnetic low trend. However, the data set lacks sufficient resolution for accurate and efficient drill targeting. The EarthEx drone mag system is known to provide the highest resolution aeromagnetic maps currently in production. Furthermore, EarthEx has previously established through property testing in 2019 that the magnetic susceptibility of the TBL pegmatite is subdued relative to the host rock lithologies (Figure 1), providing a potential method for tracking the deposits magnetic signature and identifying other surrounding targets by using high-resolution magnetometry. The survey utilizes the latest advancements in geophysical drone technology, allowing it to fly lower than other systems. We believe the survey will give Snow Lake credible and critical data to help further identify anomalies that can potentially host lithium pegmatite targets for additional resource expansion.
To date Snow Lake has only explored about 5% of its property and this new generation of geophysical drone survey will provide an abundance of data to support future prospecting and drilling programs.
Chuck Davidson, President and CEO of the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce and Board Chair for the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund additionally commented "Manitoba has a proud mining legacy for over a century and Snow Lake Lithium will ensure its continuity for the next century as Manitoba establishes itself as a critical member of the EV supply chain while playing an integral role in combatting climate change. We look forward to working with Snow Lake Lithium as they progress to production and beyond."
Philip Gross CEO of Snow Lake Lithium commented "We are grateful for the support from the Manitoba government which is a vote of confidence in Snow Lake but more importantly demonstrates the constructive nature of our collaboration and relationship as we strategically execute on our path to lithium production. We look forward to working closely with the government of Manitoba in the coming months and years as we help to establish the province as a key facilitator in the North American fleet electrification."
