Rock Tech starts 2023 Drilling Program to Expand Georgia Lake

Vancouver, Canada

Rock Tech is pleased to announce that the company has mobilized a diamond drill rig to start the first phase of the 2023 exploration drill campaign at its 100%-owned Georgia Lake Lithium project in the Thunder Bay Mining District of Ontario.

“It is our aim for 2023 to unlock the exploration potential of our Georgia Lake Project by advancing our drilling and prospecting activities across the land package. We are pleased to be able to initiate a drill program which we believe will grow our MZN and McVittie deposits as the first phase of our 2023 exploration campaign. I expect that our exploration program will lead to a sizeable increase of our Resource over the next year.”

CEO and Chairman at Rock Tech

Rock Tech intends to increase its total mineral resources at its 100% owned Georgia Lake project during 2023 and 2024. The first phase of this commitment (“Phase I”) is the mobilization of a diamond drill rig for the completion of a 3,500 meters program. The exploration drilling will include targeted drilling, aimed at expanding the existing Spodumene mineralization at Main Zone North (MZN) and McVittie deposits.

The MZN deposit currently contains the largest Mineral Resource within the Georgia Lake Pegmatite Field and remains open along strike to the east. The planned drilling will aim at extending Spodumene mineralization along strike to the east of MZN. Additional step-out drilling south of MZN will focus on extending mineralization in areas where Rock Tech have identified new mineralization during the 2022 drilling program.
