Far Resources Prepares for Upcoming Drill Program at its Zoro Lithium Property, Snow Lake, Manitoba
October 6, 2016 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (FSE:F0R) (www.farresources.com) (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the upcoming drill program at its Zoro Lithium Property. Field crews working on the Zoro Lithium Property in Snow Lake have completed prospecting, mapping and initial preparations for a planned 1200 metre drill program. Collar locations for the upcoming drill program have been adjusted based on an ongoing interpretation of historic data and new field observations by Far Resource’s crew.
During the recent prospecting program, a total of 47 pit and trench locations were located and mapped resulting in the definitive location of Dyke 6, a historic spodumene-bearing pegmatite dyke. Previously information from assessment files in the Manitoba Mining Recorder’s office had been insufficient to establish the location of Dyke 6. Additional pegmatite-bearing outcrop was also located on the property. These outcrops show no evidence of exploration and will be the focus of additional field work in the future.
Subsequent to the Thanksgiving holiday, Far Resource’s crews will re-visit the Zoro property to cut drill and helicopter pads in preparation for their planned drill program.
About the Zoro Lithium Property
Far Resources’ Zoro Lithium Property is comprised of the optioned Zoro1 claim covering approximately 52 hectares near Wekusko Lake in western Manitoba (see news release dated April 28, 2016); and a 100% interest in pegmatite dykes on contiguous ground to the north east, optioned from Strider Resources Limited (see news releases dated June 26, 2016 and August 10, 2016). The ground optioned from Strider increased the Zoro property from 0.5 km2 to 3.0 km2, a 600% increase.
The Zoro Lithium Property covers a number of known lithium pegmatite occurrences, one of which contains an historic “reserve” based on 1956 drilling on the “Principal Dyke” of 1.8 million tonnes grading 1.4% Li2O. The mineral reserve cited above is presented as an historical estimate and uses historical terminology which does not conform to current standards, and as such should not be relied upon. Although the historical estimates are believed to be based on reasonable assumptions, they were calculated prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101. These historical estimates do not meet current standards as defined under sections 1.2 and 1.3 of NI 43-10 and therefore should not be relied upon.
