Force Energy Corp. today announced plans to start a two-phase exploration program on the Zoro 1 property in the Snow Lake area of west-central Manitoba, Canada.
The Zoro property hosts seven rare metal spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes, six of which have only received cursory exploration. The main mass of spodumene discovered to date is exposed in a single pegmatite dyke exposed by seven trenches. Mineralization in this dyke has not been fully delineated and a recommended exploration program will assess the potential for more spodumene zones. The geological characteristics of the remaining dykes on the property will be determined by detailed mapping and trenching followed by assay. Rare earth and precious metal contents in the pegmatite dykes will also be assessed in this program.
A historic reserve estimate for Li2O has been based on limited drilling from a single dyke on the Zoro 1 property. Drill indicated spodumene reserves coupled with data from trenching have been calculated to give a total undiluted tonnage given of 1,727,550 tons at 0.945% Li2O. These results are very encouraging to Force Energy Corp. as the company prepares for exploration on the property and potential future development.
The exploration program will consist of detailed geological mapping, trench rehabilitation, new sampling from the trenches, diamond drilling and a thorough assay/analytical approach, accompanied by a quality assurance and quality control program. The program will be led by Dr. Mark Fedikow Ph.D. P.Eng. P.Geo. C.P.G.
“We are extremely excited to begin our initial exploration program on the recently-acquired Zoro 1 property,” stated Mr. Tim DeHerrera, president of Force Energy Corp. “The results of these initial programs will drive our corporate goals as we move forward with our new business focus of exploring and developing viable lithium and rare earth element prospects. We believe this sector offers junior exploration companies like Force excellent prospects and we are eager to continue to build shareholder value by proving up our potential reserves.”
