Houston Lake Mining Reports Results of Electron Microprobe Study

Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSXV:HLM) announced results from an electron microprobe study of spodumene samples acquired from the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite lithium zones. Test results indicated low inherent iron, which has a greater monetary value than higher iron spodumene, and is more amenable to the production of chemical-grade lithium concentrate

As quoted in the press release:

The spodumene from the spodumene-dominant UIZ intersected in diamond drill holes (DDH) PL13-001 and -005 had the lowest inherent iron, with averages ranging from 0.04 to 0.05 weight percent (wt.%) total iron oxide (Fe2O3) based on a detection limit of 0.03 wt.%. The inherent total iron in the podumene from DDHs PL13-003 and -004, were below the 0.03 wt.% Fe2O3 detection limit.

Houston Lake President, Trevor R. Walker, said:

This study has resulted in the unique ability of the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite’s lithium zones to possibly produce a raw lithium product that would be low in iron (below .1% Fe2O3) without having to rely upon concentration. This feature, coupled with the high grades of the deposit give HLM confidence of the potential ability to economically produce a technical grade quality spodumene product and/or concentrate that could appeal firstly to the established specialty glass and ceramics segment of the lithium market.
