MANITOBA, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / February 2, 2022 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) ("Snow Lake" or the "Company"), is pleased to provide this operational update. Following its announcement on January 31, 2022 (Snow Lake Extends Strike by 10% in First Hole of Winter Drilling), the Company has contracted a third diamond drill to participate in its winter drilling program in order to maximize resource expansion as much as possible at its Manitoba located Thompson Brothers Lithium (TBL) and Sherritt Gordon (SG) deposits during this winter's drill campaign.
Snow Lake Lithium has engaged Forage BRL Drilling of Temagami, Ontario to join its winter drilling project in combination with QB Drilling who assisted the Company in drilling its recently announced extension to the strike length of its TBL property. The second QB drill is expected to arrive at the TBL/SG site by the end of February and the Forage BRL drill rig is expected to arrive by middle of February.

In 1942, Sherritt Gordon Mines drilled 20 shallow holes (totaling 632 m), testing one of 2 spodumene bearing pegmatite dykes known at the time. All 20 holes were spaced less than 20m apart and covered a 600m strike length to an average depth of 50m and drilled into spodumene crystallization. Due to the analytical short comings of the day, assays for lithium in the historical drill logs were reported in "Gravitational Determination Percent Spodumene" which are qualitative in nature and will not be relied upon in the Company's resource estimates going forward. The historical drilling results yielded average spodumene contents ranging from 7.22% - 31.9% over widths ranging from 1.52 metres - 5.79 metres (See Figure 1.0). One 2018 reconnaissance grab sample from the SG-1 dyke graded 2.1% Li2O. Additional sampling from our 2021 prospecting program returned values of between 2.77% and 3.42% Li2O (December 6th, 2021 Snow Lake Lithium Samples up to 6.97% Li2O From Its Manitoba Project).
CEO Philip Gross stated "When our first drill hole of the season confirmed our geological presumptions and resulted in a significant extension of our TBL lithium pegmatite dyke, we took the decision to immediately accelerate and expand our winter drilling campaign strategy. Our third drill will play a critical role in defining the SG dykes that currently represent upside resource expansion opportunities for Snow Lake. This is a very exciting time for lithium and in order for Snow Lake to play a pivotal role in the North American electrification process, we must focus our efforts and deploy our resources as rapidly as possible to achieve the most effective impact possible on all fronts."
