Spotlight Companies  |

MGX Minerals Inc. ( (XMG:CNX)) ( (MGXMF)) (FSE:1MG) is pleased to report that joint-venture partner Power Metals Corp. (“Power Metals”) has commenced drilling in the Main Dyke area on the Henry Dome at the Case Lake lithium property (“Case Lake”). Power Metals expects to complete over 15,000 metres of drilling and will test several new targets that were recently identified through previous drilling and mapping.

In 2017 Power Metals completed approximately 5,400 metres of drilling across 50 holes in the Main, North and South Dyke last year with great success. Highlights from the 2017 fall/winter drilling on the Main Dyke included:

Lithium grades are up to 3.29 % Li2O over 1.0 m in PWM-17-08 in the quartz core with coarse-grained pale green spodumene.

Near the end of the 2017 drill program, Power Metals’ exploration team discovered two new spodumene pegmatite dykes located between the Main Dyke and the South Dyke. The first new dyke was intersected in PWM-17-42 and 43 with locally up to 30% spodumene. The exploration team then targeted the new dyke to intersect it again in PWM-17-44 and 49. This new dyke is located 20-40 m down hole from the Main Dyke and 35-40 m vertical depth from the surface. The second new spodumene pegmatite dyke was intersected in PWM-17-42 and 49. It is located 50 m down hole from the Main Dyke and 50-80 m vertical depth from surface.

One of the drill targets for the 2018 summer drill program will be to extend the strike length of these two new spodumene pegmatite dykes between the Main and South Dykes.
