Diamond Drill Program Commences on the PAK Rare Metals Project in Ontario
Sudbury, Ontario – March 1, 2013 – Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSX.V: HLM), is a mining exploration company which is actively exploring for the rare metals lithium, cesium, tantalum, and rubidium by currently focusing on its 100% owned and optioned PAK Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada. HLM is pleased to announce the commencement of diamond drilling on the PAK Rare Metals Project, located near Red Lake, Ontario. This initial phase I of diamond drilling is follow-up to the 2012 PAK exploration program which included surface channel samples of the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite (see news releases dated January 10th and 29th, 2013). The drill program will focus on drill targets derived from the high grade mineralization encountered in various zones at surface.
The current drill program consists of 1,000 m in six holes. The objectives of the program are (1) to determine the orientation, thickness and zonation of the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite, and (2) to refine the mineralogical characterization of these zones by better establishing their lithium, tantalum, cesium and rubidium potential. The drilling will be completed before the end of this winter and results will be reported as they are received and interpreted.
