At Hidden Lake, the LU#12 pegmatite was mapped and sampled over an approximate exposure that measures 10 by 300 meters. Seven samples were collected from surface trenches, and contained between 1.37 and 3.01% Li2O. The very high grades of lithium were attributed to observed concentrations of coarse-grained spodumene. Crystals up to 36 inches long were noted, with visual estimates across the dyke(s) in some places of 20 to 35%.
The property covers 1,849 hectares and hosts numerous lithium-bearing spodumene pegmatite
dykes. Thus far, the Company channel sampled four of these dykes extensively which range
between 275 and 790m in length and up to about 10m in length which returned an average
lithium concentration of 1.03% Li 2 O for the 308 samples with surface samples up to 3.3% Li 2 O.
Due to the success of the programs, a preliminary metallurgical testwork and scoping lithium
extraction tests were conducted. The scoping testwork achieved an overall extraction of 97%,
indicating that the industry standard lithium extraction techniques applied to typical
spodumene concentrates are applicable to concentrates produced from the pegmatites at
