First Lithium expands Ontario claims following OGS Report

Mar 27, 2024

"While we have long recognized the Lidstone project area as an attractive exploration target for lithium and potentially copper, the recent Ontario Geological Survey report on recommendations for exploration in the Lidstone project area solidified our belief and made our project even more exciting," said CEO Rob Saltsman. "With the staking of new claims, we further strengthen First Lithium Minerals' presence in northwestern Ontario and are strategically positioned now with the substantial land package to explore the significant potential of this region."

First Lithium Minerals Corp. is pleased to announce the addition of 547 mining claims to its Lidstone exploration project in northwestern Ontario, increasing the project's total claims area to 12,830 hectares. This expansion follows the Ontario Geological Survey's recommendations for exploration, highlighting the area's potential for lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT)-type pegmatite. The Lidstone project, located approximately 120 km northeast of Armstrong, Ontario, lies near the margins of the English River Subprovince and has shown indications of mafic-ultramafic intrusive rocks with anomalous Ni-Cu-PGE mineralization. The Company plans to conduct reconnaissance exploration, including geologic mapping and geophysical and geochemical surveys during the 2024 field season.

First Lithium Minerals is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company focusing on alkali metals in Chile's Antofagasta Region and lithium and critical metals in northwestern Ontario. The company aims to develop its projects by exploring for critical minerals essential for modern technologies.
