- Outline and broaden the recognized spodumene-bearing pegmatites zones, such because the Final Resort and the Bounty Gold Pegmatites on the Victory Challenge and the Wenasaga North Zone on the Ear Falls Challenge.
- Drill check the totally different potential areas alongside the exploration corridors to proceed to exhibit the continuity, the scale, and the potential of each tasks.
The stripping program is designed to show extra pegmatites for sampling and mapping and in addition determine and prioritize drill targets.
As beforehand introduced, greater than 240 drill core samples from Ear Falls, 25 channel samples from Victory and over 120 seize samples from totally different tasks are nonetheless pending within the lab. Past Lithium anticipates the outcomes of those samples to change into obtainable over the following few weeks. As soon as all outcomes are obtained, Past Lithium will full an total technical evaluate of all of the tasks and can finalize and announce a complete exploration plan for 2024.
“Within the final six months, we’ve got explored 50 of our 63 tasks (79.4%), superior 18 tasks to Section 2 exploration and have ten extra extremely potential tasks to start out exploring in 2024. We additionally made three important discoveries, together with two spodumene discoveries which at the moment are transferring to the drilling stage,” stated Allan Body CEO of Past Lithium.
He added: “Most of our tasks are near glorious infrastructure with nice entry situated throughout Ontario which permits us to have longer discipline season for exploration to offer regular information circulate for our shareholders. We look ahead to sharing the assay outcomes from the greater than 385 samples nonetheless within the lab as we obtain and analyze them.”
Victory Spodumene Challenge
The Victory Challenge is comprised of the Victory Fundamental (7,874 ha) and the Victory West (8,808 ha) Tasks totaling 16,682 hectares in an space situated within the Drugs Lake space close to the cities of Vermilion Bay, Dryden and the town of Kenora. The Victory Challenge at present contains two spodumene-bearing pegmatites, the Bounty Gold Pegmatite and the Final Resort Pegmatite. These two spodumene-bearing pegmatites are 40 to 50 m large and over 200-300 m uncovered alongside strike on floor (Determine 1). The Victory Challenge has:
- Substantial width and measurement for the spodumene-bearing pegmatites.
- As much as 5.11% Li2O on the Final Resort Pegmatite and as much as 3.48% Li2O on the Bounty Gold Pegmatite from spodumene-bearing pegmatite seize samples.
- District scale synergy with the Ear Falls Spodumene Challenge and the Mavis Lake Group Tasks (Satellite tv for pc, Laval, Gullwing-tot, Webb East, Webb West, Temple Bay, Ogani Lake, and McKenzie Bay) as they’re inside 100 km of one another and three regionally important lithium deposits (Determine 3).
- A 6-kilometer-long structural managed exploration pattern between the Bounty Gold and the Final Resort Pegmatites for exploration.

Ear Falls Spodumene Challenge
The Ear Falls Challenge (20,623 ha), beforehand known as the Wenasaga Challenge, is situated proper exterior the city of Ear Falls, Ontario. Ear Falls has glorious infrastructure together with freeway and logging highway entry, energy traces, providers, and native labor (Determine 2). Within the 2023 exploration program at Ear Falls, Past Lithium:
- Found the Wenasaga North Zone, a spodumene-bearing pegmatites zone, with seize samples as much as 4.54% Li2O.
- Found the Sandy Creek West Zone alongside a 100m large ridge with seize samples from pegmatites outcrops assayed as much as 0.4% Li2O.
- Reported that seize samples from the Sandy Creek West Zone are as extremely fractionated because the spodumene samples collected from the Wenasaga North Zone.
- Confirmed a 13 kilometers lengthy exploration structural managed hall with lithium mineralization.
- Delineated steady higher-grade lithium zone enveloped by wider intervals by way of stripping and channel sampling.
- Accomplished an preliminary 7 holes drilling program that intercepted new subparallel pegmatite dyke at depth that was not uncovered on floor beforehand.
