FE Battery Metals Corp. [FE-CSE; FEMFF-OTCQB] reported results of drill hole LC23-42 from the 2023 exploratory drill program at its Augustus lithium property in Quebec, Canada. The drill hole LC23-42 intersected two pegmatites with widths of 16 metres and four metres, respectively, showing varying lithium grades from 164 metres to 250 metres drilled depth.

Highlights: The upper pegmatite is 16 metres wide with average 0.41% Li2O (lithium oxide), or 1,911 parts per million (ppm) lithium (Li), at 164 metres drilled depth, including a 2-metre wide zone grading 1.17% Li2O at 167 metres depth.

The lower pegmatite is four m wide with average 0.13% Li2O, or 588 ppm lithium at 235 metres drilled depth.

There are anomalous values of other rare metals in these pegmatite zones. Of special interest is a 0.73-metre intersection at 165 metres depth with 1,270 ppm cesium (Cs) and 3,450 ppm rubidium (Rb).

The drill hole LC23-42 was drilled at location 5367949 north, 287240 east, UTM (Universal Transverse Mercator) NAD (North American Datum) 1983 Zone 18N, at azimuth 222.8 degrees and dip minus-47.4, with a drilled depth of 255 m. The drill hole was placed at the main Augustus zone.

To date, 50 drill holes with a cumulative core drilling of over 9,500 metres have been completed at Augustus.
