HLM Increases Land Position by 43% to 4,032 Hectares Through Staking on the PAK Rare Metals Project in Northwestern Ontario
SUDBURY, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Houston Lake Mining Inc. (TSX.V: HLM), is a mining exploration company that is actively exploring for the rare metals lithium, rubidium, cesium and tantalum by currently advancing its 100% owned and optioned PAK Rare Metals Project in northwestern Ontario, Canada. HLM is pleased to announce the recent staking of prospective and adjacent grounds which substantially increases the Company’s controlled land position and size of the PAK Rare Metals Project to 4,032 hectares (9,963 acres).

“The recently completed maiden resource calculation and Phase II diamond drill program (results pending and expected in the near future), coupled with the increased property size confirms HLM’s commitment to the strong market interest in lithium and other strategic metals”, said Trevor R. Walker, President of HLM. “HLM remains focused on our investments in a leading exploration target with the unique high-grade, multi-element Pakeagama Lake pegmatite on the PAK Rare Metals Project.”
About the PAK Rare Metals Project
The PAK Rare Metals Project lies close to the boundary between two geological sub-provinces of the western Superior geologic province in northwestern Ontario and hosts a rare metals pegmatite deposit. The deposit is an LCT (lithium- cesium- tantalum) classified pegmatite. These rare types of deposits have been the principal source of hard rock lithium, tantalum, rubidium and cesium ores mined in the world.
HLM is actively developing its 100% owned and optioned project which contains the Pakeagama Lake pegmatite. The deposit is one of the highest grade deposits in North America which has a current Inferred Resource of 6.89 million tonnes of 1.86% Li2O Eq. which has a technical/ceramic grade spodumene with low inherent iron (below 0.1% Fe2O3). Within the deposit, the pegmatite uniquely hosts an Upper Intermediate Zone of 1.17million tonnes grading 3.44% Li2O. The pegmatite has a 265m strike length with an estimated width varying from 45 to 125m with a sub-vertical orientation. The resource remains open to depth and along strike to the northwest and southeast. An 8-hole, 1,500m Phase II diamond drill program was completed in late March 2014; assay results for this program are pending and expected in the near future.
