About the PAK Rare Metals Project

The PAK Rare Metals Project lies close to the boundary between two geological sub-provinces in northwestern Ontario and hosts a rare metals pegmatite deposit. The deposit is a LCT (lithium, cesium, tantalum) classified pegmatite. These rare types of deposits have been the principal source of hard rock lithium, tantalum, rubidium and cesium ores mined in the world.

HLM is actively developing its 100% owned and optioned project which contains the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite. The deposit has a current NI-43.101 compliant Inferred Resource of 6.89million tonnes of 1.86% Li2O Eq. Within the deposit, the pegmatite uniquely hosts 1.17million tonnes grading 3.44% Li2O in a technical/ceramic grade spodumene lithium zone (UIZ) with low inherent iron content.

The Pakeagama Lake pegmatite has a 265m strike length with an estimated width varying from 45 to 125m with a sub-vertical orientation of the pegmatite. The resource remains open to depth and along strike to the northwest and southeast. An 8-hole, 1,500m Phase II diamond drill program was completed in late March 2014 whereby assay results have yet to be disseminated.
