Far Resources Intersects 1.2% Li2O over 38.3m inPhase 2 Drill Program
May 30, 2017 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (FSE:F0R) www.farresources.com (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the results of the Phase 2 drill program that confirmed extensive lithium mineralization in the Dyke 1 pegmatite on the Zoro Lithium Property in Manitoba.
Highlighted assay results from Dyke 1 include:
· FAR17-010 intersected spodumene-bearing pegmatite over 53.7m and had significant Li2O results of 1.2% Li2O over 38.3m including 2.3% Li2O over 4.6m, 2.6% Li2O over 2.1m and 1.4% Li2O over 7.7m.
· FAR17-012 intersected coarse spodumene crystals up to 15cm in length over 12.2m and had significant Li2O results of 1.7%, Li2O over 10.7m including 4.1% Li2O over 0.4m and 2.1% Li2O over 5.1m.
Pegmatite intersections reflect the historical results as well as those predicted by the three-dimensional model. The Phase 2 drilling program has given further confidence as to the dimensions and geometry of Dyke 1 and the three-dimensional geological model is being updated to include the new drillholes.
Keith Anderson, President and CEO, commented, “We are extremely pleased that the results of the Phase 2 drill program established continuity of mineralization in the Dyke 1 Pegmatite at depth. The most significant drillhole intersected 1.2% Li2O over 38.3m (FAR17-010) confirming that Dyke 1 thickens at depth and continues to host high grade lithium. Further exploration will be focused on expanding the mineralization both along strike and at depth of this impressive intersection.”
The objective of the Phase 2 drill program, which was completed on April 15th, 2017, was to test the Dyke 1 pegmatite within 150m from surface and along strike. The program was designed to step out from the results of the Phase 1 drill program which tested significant historic 1956 drilling and related assays. The program consisted of 7 drillholes totaling 1,088 metres and a list of summarized results is tabled below.
Table 1. Significant results of the 2017 Drilling Program.
With the success of drilling on the Dyke 1 Pegmatite, the Company is planning a field assessment in June to study the other high-grade lithium-bearing pegmatites in trenches blasted at Dykes 2 through 7, located on optioned ground to the northeast of the Zoro Lithium Property. This work will involve exploration for additional pegmatite dykes reported in outcrop but not assessed by trenching. Dyke 1 be further evaluated for mineralogy and zonation, and surrounding host rock will be sampled to determine if background lithium values are higher near the pegmatite contact. These results will then be used to explore for pegmatites that may not outcrop at surface. Geological information gathered during this project will be used to plan a Phase 3 drilling program.
The technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mark Fedikow P.Geo., a qualified person as defined under NI 43-101. Pulp duplicates, core duplicates and blanks were inserted into the sample stream at regular intervals. A total of 167 core samples were shipped to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, Ontario, an ISO certified laboratory, for analysis of lithium and other elements. All QAQC samples passed QAQC protocols.
