Considering that lithium explorer Far Resources‘ stock price has
been on an impressive run lately, one may wonder where this junior
is heading? Considering today‘s landmark announcement of new drill
results, Far Resources could very well be on its way to become a
senior within the next years! Today´s announced new set of drill
results from Dyke #1 at the Zoro Lithium Project in Manitoba,
Canada, underpin the argument of a world-class lithium project:
• 1.43% Li2O over 20.6 m including 2.19%
Li2O over 4 m and 3.12% Li2O over 1
m in Hole DDHFAR17-18. These exceptionally high-grade
lithium intercepts come along with strongly enriched tantalum
(60-137 ppm) and niobium (142-409 ppm), potentially highly valuable
by-products. In early November, Far Resources re-assayed some drill
core and also found elevated tantalum grades with up to 927
• 1.15% Li2O over 12.4 m in Hole
DDHFAR17-19, along with 45 ppm tantalum and 155 ppm niobium.
• This drilling was performed in areas of Dyke #1, where no
previous modern drilling had taken place.
• As announced today, a winter drill program is planned to
assess deeper levels (>150 m) of Dyke #1 for the extension of
high-grade lithium spodumene and to test historic high-grade
lithium drill intersections and recent assay results from trench
and outcrop sampling at Dykes #5 and #7.
• Field crews are currently expanding the prospecting and soil
geochemical surveys to find new pegmatite dykes on the recently
Considering that Canada‘s top lithium projects have average
resource grades which are similar to today‘s and past drill
results, shareholders are eagerly waiting for the first resource
estimate on Dyke #1 (and as the name suggests, there are many more
lithium-bearing pegmatite dykes on the Zoro Property waiting to get
drilled in order to further expand total resources, not to speak of
the great potential of many more dykes hidden below overburden
waiting to get discovered with the ongoing exploration
With a current market capitalization of $90 million CAD,
Far Resources is simply catching up to its peers:

The Zoro Premium
There are several reasons why Far Resources‘ Zoro
Lithium Project is attracting massive attention around the
• High-grade lithium drill results with
potential of significant by-product credits from tantalum and
• Highly favourable metallurgy expected due to
low impurities, such as iron, and a coarse-grained spodumene
mineralization (white to light-greenish colour, similar to
• Lithium-bearing pegmatites accessible at
surface and extending to depth (potentially ideal for
cost-effective open-pit mining).
• 7 known pegmatites on the property provide
significant resource definition potential in 2018.
• Blue-sky exploration potential: Many more
pegmatites possibly hidden beneath overburden.
• Most recently on November 27, Far Resources
signed a MOU for the near-by Thompson Brothers Lithium
Dyke, an 800 m long vertically dipping pegmatite dyke with
an historic non-NI43-101 resource of 3.97 million tonnes grading
1.29% Li2O (see also here).
• Near-by infrastructure (power line: 4 km;
road: 11 km; airport: 12 km; rail: 30 km). The Zoro Property is
situated in west-central Manitoba within the historic Snow Lake
Mining Camp. The hydro power line to Snow Lake is 5 km south of the
property and the small historic gold mining community of Herb Lake
is located about 10 km southwest. A rail link is located at Wekusko
siding approximately 20 km south of Herb Lake.
• First Nation consultation and engagement not required in the
Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt where the Zoro Property is
• One of the world‘s best jurisdictions for mining and
investments: Manitoba is known to be very mining-friendly.
Last year, Manitoba ranked #2 in the world becoming the 2nd best
area for investment in mining (according to reputable Fraser
Institute). The Manitoba Government has implemented key policies to
attract investments for its prolific mining sector, including
already implemented policies such as a Progressive Mining Tax Rate,
Tax Holiday for New Mines, Off-Site Exploration Allowances, New
Investment Tax Credit, Processing Allowance. Junior explorer Far
Resources is also benefitting from such pro-active governmental
policies: In December 2016, Far Resources received a Minerals
Exploration Assistance Program (MEAP) Grant, which means that the
company is getting up to 50% of eligible exploration
expenses from the government! Another grant could be given
in December 2017 again. This MEAP Grant was implemented to
stimulate exploration and encourage companies to start developing
new mines. MEAPs are only granted to projects with a high
probability of success!
On top of all that, there is another good reason for being a
shareholder right now: In early October, the company provided an
update on its Plan of Arrangement about
the proposed spin-out of its gold assets, the Winston Gold Project in New Mexico,
USA (i.e. each eligible shareholders of Far Resources will
receive shares of this new company, at no costs). This will allow
the company to focus exclusively on its Zoro Lithium Project, while
shareholders will benefit from owning 2 stocks.
Think world-class. The trend is your friend.
