From 1989 to 1993 he was involved with Cameco’s industrial mineral sector exploring for industrial commodities including high calcium limestone, kaolinite and bentonite as well as diamond exploration. From 1997 to 2000 he was instrumental in developing Cameco’s Australian portfolio of projects in the Kombolgie Basin of Northern Territory and Western Australia. He worked closely with Traditional Owners, researchers and the Cameco exploration team to create synergies for effective exploration.

“Garth brings great depth of practical exploration experience and understanding of rare metals which greatly compliments the existing strength of the Houston Lake’s Management and Board of Directors in exploration and mining”, commented Trevor R. Walker, President. “We look forward to working with Garth as we continue to develop a high grade, multi-element, rare metal target with large tonnage potential on our PAK Rare Metals Project.”

About Frontier Lithium Inc. HLM’s goal is to become a fully integrated lithium, rubidium and tantalum producer with development of the PAK Lithium Project in Ontario, Canada. Based on the PAK deposit’s high-purity, technical-grade spodumene, a relatively lower capital requirement to enter in to the lithium supply market is possible by firstly becoming a technical-grade lithium concentrate supplier. HLM is focused on a staged approach to indirectly participate in the burgeoning lithium battery industry by taking advantage of the disruptive change to market fundamentals by targeting the ceramic-glass industry (industrial users). Currently, the glass/ceramics segment is the second largest in total lithium demand whereby supply pressure is taking place due to the threat of lithium battery growth.
