Alix Resources Corp (TSXV:AIX) announced it has completed an initial sampling program at its Jackpot Lithium property located in the Georgia Lake area within the Thunder Bay Mining Division, Ontario.
As quoted in the press release:
Approximately 90 kg of spodumene-bearing pegmatite rocks were collected from the surface and will be sent to the laboratory for assaying. At the request of Lithium Australia NL (“LIT”)(LIT-ASX) an additional 5-10 kg sample will be shipped to Australia for testing using LIT’s proprietary LIT’s proprietary Sileach™ process.
Lithium was first discovered in 1955 at the Jackpot property in granitic pegmatites. The property covers the Jackpot lithium deposits, described by E.G. Pye in a 1965 report published by the Ontario Depart. of Mines on the Georgia Lake Area. The deposits were tested by a total of 32 holes drilled in 1955 by Ontario Lithium Company Limited an its associated company Conwest Exploration Co. Ltd. The drilling confirmed the presence of at least two spodumene-bearing pegmatite bodies, one at the surface (No. 1) and the other (No. 2) lying directly beneath the No. 1 deposit. Historical resources at Jackpot, comprising only the No. 2 Dyke pegmatite zone, was reported as 2Mt @ 1.09 Li2O estimated in 1956 by Ontario Lithium Company Limited*. The No. 2 pegmatite dyke, which was discovered by diamond-drilling, was intersected at 30 to 100 meters intervals over a strike length of 215 meters and at 30-60 meters intervals over a distance of 365 meters across strike. Dyke No. 2 is 4 to 20 meters thick, averaging 11 meters.

These historical mineral resources do not refer to any category of sections 1.2 and 1.3 of the NI-43-101 Instrument such as mineral resources or mineral reserves as stated in the 2010 CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves.
