Fe Battery Metals Expands Quebec Lithium Base With New Lithium Project In James Bay Area, Quebec
VANCOUVER, Oct. 17, 2023 - FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: FE) (OTCQB: FEMFF) (WKN: A2JC89) ("FE" or the "Company) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement for the Pontax West Lithium Property ("PWL") in the James Bay lithium region of northern Quebec.
The newly acquired land package consists of 72 mining claims within an extremely active hard rock lithium district. The James Bay region is now one of Canada's best-known regions for lithium with several known deposits, numerous spodumene showings, and a continuous array of new discoveries.
Prospecting and initial cursory field work has identified over 20 pegmatite outcrops on the claims and a total of 117 samples have been collected from the property. Unlike many of the projects in northern Quebec, the PWL claim group are highly accessible as the area, which covers over 3,800 hectares, straddles an 8km stretch of the James Bay Road (Route Billy-Diamond Highway) which is maintained year-round and offers one of the only routes into the James Bay region of Quebec.
The PWL property is underlain by rocks of the Neoarchean age Nemiscau Subprovince which is composed mainly of metasedimentary rocks migmatized to different degrees, as well as intrusions of tonalitic, granitic to granodioritic composition and known large masses of pegmatite.
Pursuant to a property purchase agreement between the Optionor and the Company, dated October 13, 2023 (the "Effective Date"), FE Battery Metals holds an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Property by common shares issuances and exploration expenditures as follows:
The Company allotting and issuing the following common shares in its capital stock to the Optionor subject to the approval of the regulatory bodies as follows:

- An additional 2,500,000 shares issued on or before the date of being two years from signing the agreement.

- An additional $200,000 on or before the second anniversary of the Effective Date; and

The Optionor will retain a 1.0 % NSR from any future production. In addition, the Company, at its discretion, holds the right to accelerate the above noted payments at any time and earn 100% interest in the PWL 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.
