Far Resources Reports High-Grade Lithium Mineralization from Dyke 7
Zoro Lithium Property, Snow Lake, Manitoba
May 2, 2017 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (FSE:F0R) www.farresources.com (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received assay results of two composite rock chip samples collected from Dyke 7, one of seven known spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes present on recently optioned adjacent ground, part of its Zoro lithium property near the historic mining centre of Snow Lake, Manitoba.
The two samples were collected by Far Resources field crews during mucking of boulders and debris from historic blasted trenches on the optioned portion of the Zoro property. Dyke 7 samples were collected to expand the assay database on the property and as part of an ongoing quality control program to compare lithium contents in historic rock assays with modern assay technology. This contributes to the Company’s efforts to build its geologic understanding of the distribution of lithium mineralization on the property.
Analyses for these samples are presented as percentages of Li2O in Table 1 along with historic assay data and other assays by the Company. Results compare favourably with elevated lithium contents from recent assaying of spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes and are significantly higher than the range of historic values reported in Manitoba government assessment files.
New assay data will be compiled with the revised geologic database to plan a ground-based mapping and exploration program integrated with available LIDAR data on the property once snow cover is permissive.
* The range of historic assays for samples 5-3 and 5-4 is 2.42-7.28% Li2O.
Table 1. Summary of lithium assay data from historic exploration and recent confirmatory exploration by Far Resources Ltd. at dykes 2, 4, 5 and 7.
Keith Anderson, President and CEO, commented, “We continue to be pleased with the lithium contents of our pegmatite dykes on the Zoro property. New assays from Dyke 7, like those from other known pegmatite dykes on our optioned ground, are significantly higher as compared to historic assays. These data will help to build confidence in our evolving geologic model which will guide exploration as we move forward with future drill programs and geologic mapping and prospecting integrated with LIDAR surveys. With this in mind we anxiously await assays from our recently completed drill program.”
