Foremost Lithium Intersects a New Spodumene Pegmatite and Extends Dike 8 on Its 100% Owned Zoro Lithium Project in Snow Lake, Manitoba

Foremost Lithium Intersects a New Spodumene Pegmatite and Extends Dike 8 on Its 100% Owned Zoro Lithium Project in Snow Lake, Manitoba

Foremost Lithium Resource & Technology Ltd. (CSE: FAT) (OTCQB: FRRSF) (FSE: F0R0) (WKN: A3DCC8) ("Foremost" or the "Company") (www.foremostlithium.com), is pleased to announce it has completed a ten hole 1,509 meter drill program designed to test Mobile Metal Ion ("MMI") soil geochemical anomalies and assess the deeper levels of high-grade spodumene pegmatite Dike 8 discovered in 2018. The drilling contract was completed by Bodnar Drilling Ltd. of Ste. Rose du Lac and helicopter support was provided by Gogal Air Services Ltd. of Snow Lake. Both Bodnar and Gogal Air are Manitoba corporations.

Dyke 16 Discovery

The sixteenth (16th) spodumene-bearing pegmatite dyke on the Zoro property was intersected by two drill holes. DDH FM22-70 drilled at -50 degrees inclination intersected two pegmatite intercepts totaling 4.9 meters with up to 15% light green spodumene crystal aggregates. A second hole, DDHFM22-70B was drilled at a steeper inclination of -65 degrees to undercut the first pegmatite intersection. This hole intersected a five-meter intercept of the same spodumene mineralized pegmatite as hole FM22-70. The host rock to these pegmatites is a fine-grained foliated basalt.

Dyke 8

High-grade spodumene pegmatite Dyke 8 was discovered on the Zoro property in 2018 by the drill testing of a Mobile Metal Ions soil geochemical anomaly. Drill hole Far18-35 testing the MMI anomaly intersected 36.5 m of spodumene-bearing pegmatite. Assay results from hole FAR18-35 included three separate intercepts of high-grade lithium including 12.3 m of 1.1% Li2O, 4.4 m of 1.2 % Li2O, and 2.2 m of 1.5% Li2O.

In 2022 DDHFM22-71 was drilled at -65 degrees to undercut the 2018 pegmatite intersections. A 4.5-meter spodumene-bearing pegmatite was intersected between 70.45 and 75.89 meters before being truncated by a fault [see Figure 3]. This intercept is 37 meters below the previous 2018 drill intercepted Dyke 8 spodumene mineralization. A further pegmatite was intersected below the fault between 84.4 and 86.65 meters [see Figure 4].

To date Dyke 8 has drill indicated dimensions of 120 m in length, 5-15 m in width and has been drilled to a depth of 157 m.

After logging, all spodumene-bearing pegmatite intercepts have been sawn in half and one half of the core has been shipped to Activation Laboratories (Ancaster, Ontario) for multielement analysis. The analysis of the 2022 core samples will be consistent with previous years analytical program. This includes "UT-7" lithium and related metal analysis by ICP-MS after total dissolution by sodium pyrophosphate.

All assays will be released in a Foremost Lithium news release upon receipt.

Scott Taylor, President and CEO of Foremost Lithium, states: "We now have 16 drill-intercepted spodumene-bearing pegmatite Dykes on the Zoro property. Dyke 8 represents a high priority target to perform subsequent in-fill drilling and build additional resource on Zoro. We are in the middle of acquiring airborne magnetics over Zoro which will permit Foremost to corroborate all historical drill data, MMI, together with the magnetic low signatures. This integrated, multi-data interpretation will help us de-risk and build a high-quality inventory of drill targets for our next work program. The integration of the Zoro data will also help Foremost define future subsurface drilling targets on Grass River and Jean Lake with enhanced precision and greater confidence."

The drill program was supported, in part, by a $300,000 grant from the Manitoba Mining Development Fund (MMDF), a fund developed by the Manitoba government to support sustainable mineral development with emphasis on northern Manitoba.

Lithium Market Update: Q1 2024 in Review

Lithium prices remained subdued in the first quarter of 2024, well below highs set in late 2022 and 2023. Various factors, including oversupply and weak electric vehicle (EV) demand, kept prices muted over the 90 day period.

Even as a market glut weighs on prices, Fastmarkets is forecasting that lithium supply will increase by 30 percent by the end of the year. The firm notes in a January report that some new supply is being ramped up, while some high-cost output is being cut — it remains to be seen how the current price environment will impact these plans.

"Market participants expect downstream lithium demand to remain relatively weak and with no imminent concerns about supply shortages, we forecast a tentatively balanced market in 2024," Fastmarkets explains.

Top 7 Lithium Stocks of 2024

The lithium market exhibited greater stability in Q1 after fluctuating in 2023. Lithium carbonate prices, which began the quarter at US$13,377.44 per metric ton, concluded around US$14,874.31, up 11 percent.

Market oversupply prompted some lithium producers to trim their 2024 output targets in hopes that excess material will be absorbed. Spending for project expansions and new developments was also put on the back burner.

“We believe we are approaching the bottom of the market, considering the industry is moving fairly deep into the cost curve. This is likely to support lithium prices as producers consider further production cuts to balance the market and stem further losses," states a January report from price and market reporting agency Fastmarkets.

Top 4 ASX Lithium Stocks of 2024

In contrast to the volatility of 2023, Q1 2024 saw a more stable lithium market. Prices for lithium carbonate started the period at US$13,377.44 per tonne and finished at US$14,874.31, marking an 11 percent increase.

Strong electric vehicle sales in January helped support prices for the important battery metal, which continued to rise through February and March, reaching a quarterly high of US$16,109. This rally was fueled by reports from China indicating a sustained growth trend in lithium demand for batteries and energy storage technology.

Here the Investing News Network looks at the top four ASX-listed lithium companies by year-to-date gains. The list below was generated using TradingView’s stock screener on April 10, 2024, and includes companies that had market caps above AU$10 million at that time.
