First Energy Metals Increases Size of Augustus Project with the McNeely Lithium Property Acquistion
VANCOUVER, June 9, 2021 - First Energy Metals Ltd. (CSE: FE) ("First Energy" or the "Company) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. ("Globex") (GMX-TSX, GLBXF-OTCQX International, G1MN-Frankfurt) to acquire 100% interest into McNeely Lithium Property located in LaCorne, Landrienne and Figuery Townships, Province of Quebec, Canada. The newly acquired properties consist of 66 mining claims covering a total area of 2,276.49 hectares on map sheets 32C05 and 32D08. These claims are spread out in several claim blocks along the Quebec Lithium Mine horizon. Some of the claims are located adjacent to the Augustus Lithium Property claims where First Energy has been carrying out a drill program since April 2021 and reported drill results in a series of recent news releases. These additional claims bring the total size of the Property to 15,045.62 hectares.
There is one historical lithium showing "Martin-McNeely Lithium" in a claim block of the new property where lithium pegmatite outcrop was discovered in 1955. Geologically, these mineralized pegmatite dykes intersect amphibolitized peridotite rocks north of the Preissac-Lacorne Batholith. The dikes are mineralized in spodumene, lepidolite and molybdenite. The mineralization is confined to pegmatite dykes of unknown attitude. The pegmatite in drill hole M3 drilled on Lot 28 of the Township of Landrienne intersected lithium mineralization.
Cautionary Statement: Investors are cautioned that the above information is taken from the publicly available sources, specifically from the Quebec Ministry of Energy and Mines (MERN) database. The Company has not been able to independently verify the information contained. The information is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on the Property, which is the subject of this news release. The Company will need to conduct exploration to confirm historical mineralization reported on the property and there is no guarantee that significant discovery will be made as a result of its exploration efforts.
Mr. Gurminder Sangha, CEO of First Energy Metals stated that, "We are very pleased to acquire these claims adjacent to the Augustus and Canadian Lithium prospects on the Property. The new acquisition will give more ground to expand our current drill program to the east, west and south if the mineralization extends in that direction. This acquisition is a result of successful exploration work of First Energy showing excellent lithium mineralization on surface and drill holes."
Pursuant to a property purchase agreement between Globex and the Company, First Energy will acquire a 100% interest in the McNeely Lithium Property by making a cash payment of $250,000 and issuing 2,000,000 common shares. The Sellers will retain a 3.0 % Gross Metal Royalty ("GMR") on the property.
This above noted agreement is with a non-related party and there are no directors, officers or senior management in common. Closing of the Transaction is subject to obtaining all required approvals, including the CSE and including any other regulatory approval.
