Frontier Lithium commences Phase II drill program on the Electric Avenue at the Spark Pegmatite
Sudbury, Ontario, July 22, 2019 – Frontier Lithium Inc. (TSX.V: FL) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce commencement of Phase II diamond drill program at the newly discovered Spark Pegmatite, 2.3 km northwest of the PAK deposit (Figure 1), located on the Electric Avenue, an emerging premium lithium-mineral district hosted in the Canadian Shield of northwestern Ontario.
The Phase II drill program builds on the results of the maiden drill program which included drill hole #38 that intersected 215m of pegmatite averaging 1.4% Li2O, including 62.0m of 1.81% Li2O.
Phase II consists of approximately 1,000m in four holes. The objectives of the program are (1) to determine the orientation, thickness and potential zonation of the Spark pegmatite below surface, and (2) to refine the mineralogical characterization of these zones by better establishing their lithium potential. The drilling will be completed before the end of this summer and results will be reported as they are received and interpreted. The company expects to conduct a resource calculation on Spark before the end of 2019.

“We are thrilled to commence the Phase II drill program on the Spark pegmatite, as it has substantial potential to build additional high quality, at surface, tonnage on the PAK Lithium Project”, stated Garth Drever, P.Eng, P.Geo, Vice President Exploration.
