Vancouver, BC (FSCwire) - 92 Resources Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX.V: NTY) (FSE: R9G2) is pleased to announce that a Phase II follow-up exploration program has commenced on its wholly owned Hidden Lake Lithium Property. The Property is located just north of NWT Highway 4, approximately 40 kilometers northeast of the city of Yellowknife, NWT.
As announced on June 7, 2016, the Phase I reconnaissance sampling confirmed the presence of high grade lithium on LU dyke D12. The five samples returned values of 1.64%, 2.45%, 2.69%, 2.89% and 3.06% Li2O, with an average grade of 2.54% Li2O. The dominant lithium-bearing mineral appears to be very coarse grained, light gray to light-greenish gray spodumene. The pegmatite continues both to the northeast and southwest of the sampled area.
The current Phase II program will consist of detailed mapping and systematic channel sampling of the LU dyke D12 and other pegmatites on the property. The field crews have mobilized to the property and work is expected to continue into early September. The company has contracted Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. of Edmonton, Alberta to conduct the work program.
According to Adrian Lamoureux, President and CEO of 92 Resources: “We are very encouraged by the first phase of work on the LU dyke 12 pegmatite, and look forward to building value through rapid advancement of the project. The Yellowknife Pegmatite belt may one day prove to be an important source of lithium, which will help fuel Canada’s transition to a green energy economy.”
About the Property
The Property is located within the central parts of the Yellowknife Pegmatite Belt, which extends from the Blaisdell Lake pegmatite series in the north about 45 km to the south near Harding Lake. The belt parallels the Prosperous Lake Granite Suite; pegmatites, related to this intrusive complex are usually discordant and predominantly north south to northeast-southwest elongate bodies. Within these zoned pegmatite fields, lithium-rich pegmatites tend to occur a similar distance from the source granite and are typically located farthest from the source granitoids. The largest pegmatite deposits often have structural controls that increase their tonnage or grade potential.
