First Energy Metals Drills 1.35 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 2 Meters at Augustus Lithium Property

06.05.2021  |  CNW

VANCOUVER, May 6, 2021 - First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFF) ("First Energy" or the "Company) is pleased to announce results of a drill hole at its Augustus Lithium Property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC21-003 intersected a six-meter-wide zone with 0.62 percent (%) lithium oxide (Li2O) at 45 metres (m) depth including a two metres wide intersection with 1.35% Li2O at 48 m depth. A second two-meter-wide pegmatite intersection assayed 0.63% Li2O at 73 m depth (see Table 1 for details).

Drill hole LC21-03 was drilled at location: 284956E, 5368263N (NAD 1983 UTM Zone 18N), Azimuth 53.5 degrees, Dip 49.4 degrees with a total drilled depth of 147m. All intersections reported are based on drilled width and have not been converted to the true width.

Gurminder Sangha, CEO of First Energy Metals stated that, "We are very pleased that drill results have started to arrive. After fieldwork mapping and sampling, this is the second step to verify historical exploration work. The Company is looking forward to receiving more drilling and channel sampling results to keep investors aware of the progress being made on the Property".

The drill program is based on the historical exploration data and the Company's surface trenching and sampling program which is currently underway. Several historical drill hole collars were also located on the Property which help in location and orientation of drill holes for the current drill program. The Drill program commenced on April 5th at the Property by Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos, Quebec who is contracted for the drill program. A B-20 drill rig is deployed for this work which has a capacity to drill up to 1,000-meter-deep hole. A core shack has been built near the Property for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage. To date a total of 13 drill holes with a cumulative core drilling of 1,770 m has been completed on the Property. The drill core is being logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. For quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), field duplicates and blanks are being inserted at an industry standard interval.

The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories ("ACTLABS"), Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses using laboratories code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2) as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.

Code Ultratrace 7 - Peroxide Fusion - ICP and ICP/MS
Samples are fused with sodium peroxide in a Zirconium crucible. The fused sample is acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The resulting solutions are diluted and then measured by ICP-OES and ICP-MS. All metals are solubilized.

ICP-MS

Fused samples are diluted and analyzed by Agilent 7900 ICP-MS. Calibration is performed using five synthetic calibration standards. A set of (10-20) fused certified reference material is run with every batch of samples for calibration and quality control. Fused duplicates are run every 10 samples.

ICP-OES

Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials for the required analytes, all prepared by sodium peroxide fusion. Every 10th sample is prepared and analyzed in duplicate; a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed. Samples are analyzed using a Varian 735ES ICP and internal standards are used as part of the standard operating procedure.
