FAR Resources Ltd. has reported preliminary results of its recently completed field visit in Jean Lake Property near Snow Lake, MB. The newly acquired 1,002-hectare property adjoins FAR’s Zoro lithium project and the Thompson Brothers lithium project of Snow Lake Resources within the Snow Lake pegmatite field.
Following up on historical reports from the 1940s, the company’s prospecting program found two new spodumene-bearing pegmatites.
According to the company press release, one of these may be the Beryl pegmatite mentioned in Manitoba mineral assessment files, although the location is different than reported. The second occurrence is a totally new discovery. Both display abundant coarse-grained spodumene crystals up to 40 cm in length and are open to expansion in all directions. The company has collected character samples and sent them for confirmatory analysis at the Ancaster laboratory of Activation Laboratories Ltd.
The area is well located to permit year-round access for accelerated explorationif warranted.
“We are excited to validate our acquisition of the Jean Lake Property so quickly,” said John Gammack, President and CEO of FAR. “With the discovery of at least one previously unknown lithium pegmatite and the lack of any modern exploration on the property, we are very keen to expand our work on the project. As part of the planning for further work, we have lodged an application with the Manitoba Mineral Development Fund (MMDF) to support an expanded program which may include drone magnetometer and LiDAR surveys, additional prospecting and systematic geochemical sampling, and diamond drill testing of high priority targets.”
FAR Resources is an exploration company focused on today’s burgeoning precious metals market in gold/silver in New Mexico and the US, and in the renewable energy market with lithium projects located in Snow Lake, MB and Hidden Lake, NWT.
