Geological Setting of Shatford Lithium Project

The Shatford Lithium Project straddles a 15 kilometers long structural trend of the Greer-Shatford Shear Zone with numerous pegmatite dykes and favorable host rocks. It is situated in the southern limb of the Bird River greenstone belt in southeastern Manitoba. The region hosts hundreds of individual pegmatite bodies, many of which are classified as complex rare-element Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites — known to account for a quarter of the world’s lithium production.

The northeast corner of the Shatford Lithium Project borders the mineral lease of the Tanco mine, with the Buck, Pelgi, and Dibs pegmatites nearby.

Proposed Work Program

Snow Lake intends to build upon the prior work undertaken by ACME Lithium on the Project, and its immediate focus will be to undertake a detailed review of all data, samples, assays and reports prepared by ACME Lithium. Upon completion of that review, Snow Lake will design an exploration program to both build upon ACME Lithium’s work, and to undertake a regional exploration program over the balance of the Project to identify potential drill targets.

Snow Lake also intends to use the services of Critical Discoveries to assist in reviewing ACME Lithium’s exploration data, as well as to provide input to the development of the 2024 exploration program on the Shatford Lithium Project.

Tanco Mine

Tantalum Mining Corporation of Canada Ltd. (“Tanco”) is 100% owned and operated by Sinomine (Hong Kong) Rare Metals Resource Co., and operates the Tanco mine located on the northwest shore of Bernic Lake, Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba. The Tanco mine pegmatite orebody was discovered in the late 1920’s and the Tanco mine has been in commercial operation producing lithium in Manitoba for more than 50 years. In addition to lithium concentrate for the lithium battery market, the Tanco mine produces cesium-based products for the North American market.
