2022/2023 Winter-Spring Drill Campaign – Final Results
These results reflect the final 6,712 meters of drilling completed during the 2022/2023 winter-spring drill campaign at the Grass River lithium project. These results were not received in time to be incorporated in the mineral resource estimate included in the S-K 1300 Technical Report Summary of Initial Assessment for the Snow Lake Lithium™ Project released in August 2023.
These results, together with the results of the upcoming 2023/2024 winter drill program, will be incorporated into an updated mineral resource estimate to be included in the pre-feasibility study planned to be conducted on the Snow Lake Lithium™ Project during Q4 of 2023 and the first half of 2024.
