Foremost Lithium Announces Winter Drilling Plans on Its Jean Lake Lithium/Gold Property

  • Target includes the B-1 spodumene bearing pegmatite dyke along strike towards the B-2 and B-3 pegmatites extending the mineralization laterally
  • Potential for additional gold mineralization at depth will be targeted based on previous drill results of 7.50 g/t Au over 7.66 metres from 94.35 - 102.01 metres (including 102.0 g/t Au over 0.48 metres from 94.77 - 95.25 metres

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 19, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foremost Lithium Resource & Technology Ltd. (NASDAQ: FMST) (CSE: FAT) (“Foremost Lithium”, “Foremost” or the Company), a North American hard-rock lithium exploration company, is pleased to announce today its drilling plans for its Jean Lake Lithium/Gold Property located near the historic mining centre of Snow Lake in Manitoba. The Company is completing plans in preparation for a 15-hole, 2,500-metre diamond drill winter program including submitting a work permit at the Manitoba Mines Branch.

“Gold has hit an all-time high this month. This Jean Lake property has an added benefit of previous gold and lithium discoveries, which provides us an opportune position to be able to move forward to explore both batteries and precious metals with the drill," commented Jason Barnard, Chief Executive Officer and President of Foremost Lithium. "We have some phenomenal, long-standing vendors, who in support of our project, have offered to fund our drill programs in way of a credit finance, if we so desire. We are fortunate to be in a position where our exploration partners feel such confidence in our Company and our assets, to provide us with such a commitment. Foremost is looking forward to this drill season and increasing value for our company and shareholders.”


Foremost will commence the drilling program in the beginning of Q1 in 2024 and is targeting the B-1 spodumene bearing pegmatite dyke along strike towards the B-2 and B-3 pegmatites to extend the mineralization laterally and down plunge. It is the Company’s goal to develop a better understanding of the spodumene-bearing pegmatite emplacement mechanisms at Jean Lake. Foremost’s drill program, combined with field observations, have indicated that B-1 and B-2 could be one spodumene-bearing pegmatite with a minimum length of 325 metres. Previous drilling, just north of the B1 pegmatite, intersected a 3.35 metre zone of spodumene mineralization between surface and 3.35 metres, assaying 1.26% Li2O (Foremost news release June 6, 2023).


Previous drill testing in 2023 of integrated geological and geochemical targets elsewhere on the Jean Lake Property intersected numerous gold mineralized intervals at vertical depths of up to 110 metres below surface (Foremost news release June 6, 2023). Highlights from this program included 7.50 g/t Au over 7.66 metres from 94.35 - 102.01 metres (including 102.0 g/t Au over 0.48 metres from 94.77 - 95.25 metres). Further investigation and drilling will assess the potential for additional gold mineralization at depth as well as to create a geological framework to aid in delineating gold intersected during the 2022-23 drill program.

Sherritt Gordon – B-1 Spodumene Bearing Pegmatite

The northeast sector of Foremost’ s Jean Lake Property abuts the lithium property of Snow Lake Resources (“SNR”) that hosts the Sherritt Gordon (“SG”) and Grass River (“GRP”) pegmatites. Foremost’s SG-3 pegmatite, or the re-named B-1 Beryl pegmatite, and the B-2 Beryl pegmatite on the Jean Lake Property, appear to be on trend with the SG and GRP on Snow Lake lithium’s property.   Both SG-1 and SG-2 can be interpreted to be components of the same pegmatite cluster of the now renamed B1 pegmatite. Highlights of recent drilling by SNR (January 2023 news release) include 2.0% Li2O over 6.0 metres starting at 125.0 metres down hole (GRP-013), including 3.2% Li2O at over 1.5 metres. The possibility that the SG-3 pegmatite (re-named B-1) may form part of the same cluster as the nearby spodumene bearing SG-1 and SG-2 pegmatites will be tested by planned drilling.

Credit Finance Option and Next Steps

The Company has secured arrangements with some of its vendors to extend the Company up to $3.0 million in credit financing toward the drill program which may be utilized by the Company at any time, and from time to time at its discretion, to complete the program; the payments for which can be made over a period from 12 to up to 18 months from the services being rendered to the Company under the same. Dahrouge Geological Consulting is currently finalizing all details of the Jean Lake Property winter drill program, including securing all vendors and facilities.
