VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Dec. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Far Resources Ltd. (CNSX:FAT.CN) (FSE:F0R) (OTC:FRRSF) (www.farresources.com) (“FAR Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of a UAV-borne magnetic survey over the Jean Lake property where the high-grade lithium Beryl pegmatite dyke was re-discovered in August of 2021 shortly after the property was optioned. Recent assay results from two locations on the Beryl pegmatite gave a range of 3.89-5.17% Li2O in five samples collected from a trench after approximately 80 years of accumulated organic debris was removed.
The UAV-assisted magnetic survey is being flown by EarthEx Geophysical Solutions Inc. (Selkirk, Manitoba) at 25 m line-spacing with 250 metre tie-lines. A total of 500 line-km will be flown. The survey was commenced November 29 (2021) and despite some weather delays is ongoing. The orientation of the flight lines is designed to assess the magnetic signatures of lithium-bearing pegmatites in and along both the Beryl Lithium Trend and the Thompson Brothers Lithium Trend that transects the Jean Lake property. The superior spatial precision of the UAV-acquired magnetic data will provide an assessment of the depth to source, dip of the body and the overall shape and size of the body which will assist diamond drill targeting. Results of the survey will be released in Far Resources news releases. The magnetic survey will be followed up with a Lidar survey in the spring after snow has melted.
Funds for the UAV survey have been provided by a grant from the Manitoba Mining and Development Fund established by the Manitoba Government to assist and stimulate sustainable resource development in northern Manitoba.

FAR Resources' Winston Gold and Silver Project includes on-going exploration of their 100 percent owned property located in the Black Range of New Mexico USA. Recent results included exceptional numbers from property-wide confirmatory sampling completed in late 2020 with grades of up to 66.5 g/t gold and 4619 g/t silver. The property’s three mines, Ivanhoe, Emporia and Little Granite are known for their historic production of high-grade gold and silver ores, primarily developed prior to the 1930's with a brief revival in the 1980's but have seen little modern exploration.
