Equitorial Exploration (TSXV:EXX) has announced specimen sample results from its 2016 exploration program on its 100 percent owned Li lithium property which hosts the Little Nahanni pegmatite group.
As quoted in the press release:

The Li property lies 30 km northwest of the Cantung Mine Site in the Northwest Territories, immediately east of the Yukon Territory border (Figure 1).  
In addition to the 81 channel samples that were collected during the 2016 field program (see News Release dated September 6, 2016), three specimen samples were taken from parts of the lithium-cesium-tantalum pegmatite dyke swarms.  These specimens returned:

  • -2.85 % Li2O, 28.1 g/t Ta2O5 and 0.05% SnO2;
    -1.85% Li2O, 53.4 g/t Ta2O5 and 0.05% SnO2; and,
    -1.36% Li2O, 55.8 g/t Ta2O5 and 0.11% SnO2.

Lithium-cesium-tantalum pegmatite dyke swarms on the Li property have been traced over a combined length of 13 km in mountainous terrain that is deeply incised by several east- or west-facing cirques.  The sampled portions of the dyke swarms are up to 52.60 m wide.  Each dyke swarm contains multiple dykes that range from 0.2 to 10 m in width.  The dykes strike northerly and have near vertical dips.  They are well exposed on cirque walls, but most of these areas are too steep to sample.   Fortunately, relatively continuous bedrock exposures are accessible at the base of cliffs on the north and south side of cirques.  Cirque floors are covered by overburden.
