A total of 56 surface samples, 51 of which were channel samples, were taken from multiple pegmatite dykes on the property. Prospecting was further carried out on southern extremity outcrops and the “West Dyke” before it dipped under cover. In total this dyke was traceable for over 350m, and at its most southern extremity had widened out to 2.5m. Surface samples from multiple pegmatite dykes on the property including the “West”, “East” “North/South” and PR dykes show visible spodumene in many samples. The PR Dyke was well exposed for over 250m. This dyke was spodumene bearing and averaged 1m wide. The channel samples which will provide information on the continuity of lithium mineralization as well as 5 grab samples. The samples were delivered to ALS Laboratories facility in Val d’Or, Quebec where they will be prepared for analysis before shipping to the main Vancouver facility.
