FE Battery Metals Drills 1.01 Percent Lithium Oxide Over 8 Meters at Augustus Lithium Property

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 15, 2024 / FE Battery Metals Corp. (CSE:FE)(WKN:A3D08G)(OTCBB:FEMFF) ("FE" or the "Company) is pleased to announce results of Drill Hole LC23-87 from its most recent exploratory drill program at its Augustus Lithium Property ("Property") in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC23-87 intersected a spodumene bearing lithium pegmatite at 1.01 percent (%) lithium oxide (Li2O) over 8 metres (m) at 107 m drilled depth. There are anomalous values of other rare metals such as beryllium (Be) 121.5 parts per million (ppm), cesium (Cs) 28.7 ppm, niobium (Nb) 91.85 ppm, tantalum (Ta) 83.10 ppm, gallium (Ga) 50.65 ppm and rubidium (Rb) 1,342.25 ppm (see Table 1 for details).

Drill hole LC23-87 was drilled at location 5367836.959N, 287280.937E, UTM NAD 1983 Zone 18N, at azimuth 228.72 degrees and dip -46.28 with a drilled depth of 177 m. The drill hole was placed at the main Augustus zone.

The drill program is based on the current and historical exploration data. The drill program was contracted to Forage Hebert Inc. Drilling of Amos, Quebec. A B-20 drill rig was deployed for this work. The core shack is situated in the village of St-Dominique du Rosaire, located about 50km from the Property for drill core logging, sample preparation and storage. To date, a total of 89 drill holes, with a cumulative diamond drilling of 16,607.64 m, have been completed on the Property. The drill core was logged and sampled at the core shack using a rock saw. For quality control and quality assurance (QA/QC), field duplicates, standards and blanks were being inserted at industry standard intervals.

The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and delivered to Activation Laboratories ("ACTLABS") in Ancaster, Ontario, for sample preparation and analyses using laboratory code Ultratrace 7 and sodium peroxide fusion (Na2O2), as summarized below. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO-certified laboratory.

Code Ultratrace 7 - Peroxide Fusion - ICP and ICP/MS

Samples are fused with sodium peroxide in a Zirconium crucible. The fused sample is acidified with concentrated nitric and hydrochloric acids. The resulting solutions are diluted and then measured by ICP-OES and ICP-MS. All metals are solubilized.

ICP-MS

Fused samples are diluted and analyzed by Agilent 7900 ICP-MS. Calibration is performed using five synthetic calibration standards. A set of (10-20) fused certified reference material is run with every batch of samples for calibration and quality control. Fused duplicates are run every 10 samples.

ICP-OES

Samples are analyzed with a minimum of 10 certified reference materials for the required analytes, all prepared by sodium peroxide fusion. Every 10th sample is prepared and analyzed in duplicate; a blank is prepared every 30 samples and analyzed. Samples are analyzed using a Varian 735ES ICP and internal standards are used as part of the standard operating procedure.Source: https://actlabs.com/geochemistry/lithogeochemistry-and-whole-rock-analysis/peroxide-total-fusion/
