ROOT LAKE - Lithium


The Root Lake Lithium property, 100 per cent. owned by Landore, is located approximately 300 kilometres northwest of Thunder Bay, and consists of 33 patented claims for a total of 513.43 hectares. It is host to the McCombe Pegmatite, which was initially discovered by Capital Lithium Mines Ltd. in 1956 during an exploration boom for lithium and is one of a number of rare-element pegmatites that occur over a 350 kilometres strike-length of the boundary zone between the Uchi and the English River geological sub-provinces, in the Superior Province of Ontario.

The McCombe Pegmatite, comprising two main spodumene-bearing dykes, has been traced on surface for a strike length of 550 metres with widths up to 19 metres. Capital Lithium Mines Ltd. completed a diamond drilling programme on the Root Lake property in 1956, consisting of 55 drill holes for 10,442 metres, establishing a resource of 2.3 million tonnes grading 1.3 per cent. Lithium Oxide (Li2O) on the McCombe Pegmatite. (Mulligan1965). This resource is not compliant to NI 43-101.

An independent technical review was completed in February 2010 on the Root Lake Lithium property which confirmed the presence of an exploration target of approximate size and grade similar to the historic resource.
