Frontier Lithium awarded 2019 Bernie Schnieders Discovery of the year
Sudbury, Ontario, April 21, 2020 – Frontier Lithium Inc. (TSXV: FL) (“Frontier” or “the Company”) is pleased to receive discovery of the year award from the Northwestern Ontario Prospectors Association (“NWOPA”).
“This company was able to put together a really exciting project and resource within 14 months of discovery…It’s quite large, and the grade is quite high,” said Robert Cundari who chairs the NWOPA’s awards committee. He added “Frontier made the discovery in a type of pegmatite (igneous rock) that is very rare, and quickly defined quite a considerable deposit.”
“We’d like to thank the committee for this honour as well as congratulate our exploration team and the supporting First Nations partners at the PAK Lithium Project.”, commented Garth Drever, Vice President Exploration of Frontier Lithium.
“This appreciated recognition highlights an emerging premium lithium-metal district in the Great Lakes region of northern Ontario,” commented Trevor Walker, President and CEO of Frontier Lithium. “The resource growth on our project is timely as Canada and the United States have recently announced the finalization of the Canada-U.S. Joint Action Plan on Critical Minerals Collaboration when North American’s are struggling and seeking to bring supply chains home.”
The Spark Pegmatite Discovery Timeline;
- September 2018, Frontier Lithium geologist identified the Spark Pegmatite while traversing a high priority target and immediately conducted channel sampling prior to winter freeze-up.
- January 2019, Frontier Lithium received significant results from the Spark pegmatite 236 m of channel samples at an average grade of 1.91% Li2O – January 17, 2019 news release.
- Frontier completed two diamond drill programs on the Spark Pegmatite over eight holes in 2,500 m in 2019 which identified significant lithium mineralization at surface and persisting at depth. Significant results include assays of 1.61% Li2O over 231 m and 1.4% Li2O over 215 m – April 9 and September 24, 2019 news release.
- In early 2020, Frontier released an initial resource estimate for the Spark Pegmatite 14 months after the initial discovery – February 4, 2020 news release.
