About the PAK Rare Metals Project
The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite has a exposed strike length of approximately 200m
with a width up to 150m at surface with mineralization that is open in all
directions. In September 2012, Peter J. Vanstone, P.Geo. the qualified person
for the project, conducted a 91 sample channel sampling program on the exposed
Pakeagama Lake pegmatite in order to confirm historical results and to add
additional channel samples while further sampling by distinct geologic zones.
The results of the program have so far identified high grade lithium up to 4.74%
Li2O over 15 meters in three distinct pegmatite zones, and high grade tantalum
up to 192ppm Ta2O5 over 14 meters in one of these zones. A diamond drill program
has been independently recommended and on March 1, 2013, the Company announced
that a Phase I, 6 hole, 1,000 meter drill program commenced.
