Lithium Canada Launches Summer 2016 Lithium Pegmatite Phase One Exploration Program in Southeast Manitoba $PFN.ca
- Phase One Exploration Program to begin Summer 2016
- Program of Pegmatite Sampling, Prospecting and Mapping planned for the Lithium One, Lithman North and Lithman East Project
- Numerous historical Pegmatites to be tested for Lithium mineralization
- Summer Surface Exploration; objective to outline future Drill Programs
- Utilizing the Prospector Generator Model, the Company is currently seeking participation by interested Option/Joint Venture Partners for its Lithium Projects (see About the Company’s Business Model – Page 2)
Vancouver, BC / July 21, 2016 – Pacific North West Capital Corp. (“PFN”, the “Company”) (TSX-V: PFN; Frankfurt: P7J; OTCQB: PAWEF announces that its 100% owned subsidiary, Lithium Canada Developments will be conducting a Phase One Exploration Program, during the summer of 2016, on three Lithium Projects in southeast Manitoba.
A surface Phase One Exploration Program, consisting of Mapping, Prospecting and Sampling of known Pegmatites, on three of the company’s Lithium Projects, will begin during the summer of 2016. Presently, work permits have been submitted with the government and once granted, the field work will begin. The exploration program planned will lay the groundwork for future Exploration Plans and Drill Programs. Historic records in the region have indicated Lithium mineralization and mineralogy to be present in several Pegmatites, but at the time, exploration was being conducted for other commodities.
The three projects that are being explored this summer will be the Lithium One, Lithman North and Lithman East Projects. All three have previously mapped Pegmatites and are situated in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field. This Pegmatite Field hosts the world class Tanco Pegmatite, which has been mined from an underground operation, at the Tanco Mine Site in various capacities, since 1969. It once was one of the primary producers of Spodumene (a primary Lithium ore) in North America.
The Tanco Pegmatite is not exposed at surface, except for under Bernic Lake. It is an extremely fractionated, rare-metal, complex type-Petalite subgroup, LCT (Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum) Pegmatite, hosted in a late-stage, subvolcanic Gabbro. Current NI43-101 compliant resource calculations are not available for the Tanco Pegmatite. Academic publications have estimated the size of the deposit to be up to approximately 57 million tonnes. The last published mineral reserves (end of 1992) were 1.075 million tonnes of 0.12% Ta2O5, 3.5 million tonnes of 2.7% LiO2, and 315,000 tonnes of 23.3% Cs2O.
Lithium Canada Development Inc. (100% wholly owned Subsidiary of Pacific North West Capital); total land holding in SE Manitoba, as of July 2016: 6,181 hectares (15,274 acres).
Further announcements regarding potential Joint Ventures and other exploration initiatives, on the company’s Lithium Projects, in southeast Manitoba will be forthcoming.
About the Company’s Business Model
“Utilizing the Prospector Generator Model and an aggressive project Acquisition Program, management plans to provide our shareholders with the opportunity to explore and develop a number of Concurrent Exploration Projects. After an initial phase of exploration on our projects, our team plans to partner via Option/Joint Venture Agreements with Major and well-funded Junior companies that want exposure to the Lithium industry.
The Prospector Generator Model reduces risk, share dilution and increases Discovery Potential.”
About The Company’s Lithium Division
The company’s new Lithium Division will focus on the Discovery, Acquisition, Exploration and Development of Lithium Projects in Canada. In the United States, the company will use its wholly owned U.S.A subsidiary to Acquire and Develop projects, in active mining camp, in Nevada, Arizona and California.
Management believes that these New Age Metals, Lithium, PGMs and Rare Earths, have robust macro trends, with surging demands and limited supply. Going forward, this new Division will explore for the minerals needed, to fuel the demand for energy storage and other core 21st Century Technologies.
The company has a growing portfolio of Lithium Projects. The Clayton Valley Forks Li Project in Nevada is a recent Lithium Brine Project, acquired by the company (PFN News Releases: April 25th, 2016 and May 9th, 2016.) The company also has Hard Rock Lithium projects in Canada (PFN News Releases: April 21st, 2016, May 24th, 2016 and July 5th, 2016), located in the Winnipeg River Pegmatite Field of southeast Manitoba.
Lithium and Platinum Group Metal prices have improved dramatically in recent months. Lithium supplies remain in deficit, relative to their demand. Both metals groups are used for the expanding worldwide automobile industry (conventional and electric). In the case of PGMs, demand is increasing for Autocatalysts, a key component for reducing toxic emissions for automotive, gasoline and diesel engines. Regarding Lithium, there is an ever increasing demand for batteries, in cellphones, laptops, electric cars, solar storage, wireless charging and renewable energy products.
