MANITOBA, CANADA /ACCESSWIRE/February 1, 2022 / Snow Lake Resources Ltd., d/b/a Snow Lake Lithium Ltd. (NASDAQ:LITM) (“Snow Lake” or the “Company”), has engaged SLR Consulting Canada ( https://www.slrconsulting.com ) to complete an Initial Assessment (IA) and Technical Report Summary (TRS) of the Snow Lake Lithium Properties in accordance with Disclosure Standard SK 1300.

In June 2021, Frank Hrdy of CanMine Consultants provided the company with a full technical report in accordance with NI 43-101 disclosure standard. This report is dated June 10, 2021 (the technical report). The technical report was then reviewed by SLR and CanMine to provide the company with a converted report to the SK 1300 TRS disclosure standard.
SLR has also been hired (see December 15, 2021: Snow Lake Lithium Commits SLR to Benchmark Environmental Program) to provide the Company with the parameters for a baseline environmental study to be conducted over the next two years. The data collected during the baseline study will become the basis for the environmental clearance process with the Province of Manitoba.
CEO Philip Gross said: “We are very pleased to continue this relationship with SLR and let them lead this business by providing our initial assessment. This is the first step towards our pre-feasibility study and ultimately our definitive feasibility study. SLR has not only demonstrated a dedication to professional excellence, but a unique understanding of lithium and a strong knowledge of the province. We look forward to working with them to facilitate our accelerated trajectory in building the first fully renewable, fully electric lithium mine in North America.
Jason Cox, AI Project Manager for SLR, said, “With the world’s growing demand for lithium and the scrutiny of the carbon footprint of raw materials in manufacturing, Snow Lake’s potential to provide lithium without carbon-free and conflict-free operating an electric lithium mine powered by renewable energy is a fantastic opportunity that we look forward to participating in.”
