With a nearby lake providing water for drilling, Zoro can be reached by highway and helicopter or boat and ATV.
As the company awaits drill results, Far Resources CSE:FAT reported two new sample assays that improve on historic grades from the Zoro hard rock lithium project in Manitoba’s Snow Lake mining region. The samples came from Dyke #7, one of seven known spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes on claims added to the property last summer.
The two composite rock chip samples that the company gathered from previously blasted trenches graded 1.35% and 2.91% Li2O. That compares with historic results using older analytical techniques for the same dyke showing 0.46% and 0.5% Li2O.
Last July Far Resources compared new samples with historic results from three other dykes on the new claims. The more recent assays for Dyke #2 showed 2.71% and 3.53% Li2O, compared with historic results of 1.66% and 1.69%.
An assay for Dyke #4 came to 2.41%, compared with an historic 1.12%.
Dyke #5 results ranged from 1.46% to 6.35%, compared with the historic range from 2.42% to 7.28%.
The company plans to compile the new results with a revised geologic database to plan a spring program of ground-based mapping and exploration. Findings will be integrated with LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) data that measures elevation.
Meanwhile assays are pending for the seven-hole, 1,088-metre Phase II drill program that wrapped up last month on Zoro’s Dyke #1. One hole revealed spodumene-bearing pegmatite over 53.7 metres, while another found coarse spodumene crystals over 12.2 metres.
Seven holes from last year’s Dyke #1 program also found lithium-bearing pegmatite, with intervals grading up to 1.13% Li2O over 12.1 metres and 1.1% over 23.4 metres.
In March the company announced a purchase agreement for the Winston silver-gold project in New Mexico, subject to approvals and due diligence.
