VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rock Tech Lithium Inc. (the "Company" or “Rock Tech”) (TSX-V: RCK; Frankfurt: RJIB) is pleased to announce that it has engaged Northern Bioscience Ecological Consulting (“Northern Bioscience”) to complete baseline studies supporting an Environmental Assessment at the Company’s 100%-owned Georgia Lake lithium project in Ontario, Canada.
The baseline studies will focus on the preliminary project site, transmission line and adjacent lakes and streams covering 652 hectares and the Nama Creek access road to Provincial Highway 11. The scope of the baseline studies will include fish and aquatic habitat, benthic macroinvertebrates, sediment samples, breeding birds, terrestrial vegetation, Woodland caribou, species at risk, migratory birds and significant wildlife habitat.
“As we advance through the environmental permitting process it’s essential to have the expertise of locals onboard,” said Dirk Harbecke, Rock Tech’s chairman. “Having the City of Thunder Bay, a world-class mining hub, located just a short drive from site is a big comparative advantage for Rock Tech as we develop our Georgia Lake lithium project.”
All scientific and technical information in this news release concerning the Georgia Lake lithium property was reviewed and approved by Karl-Stephan Peters, EurGeol 787, a qualified person (QP) as defined under National Instrument 43-101.
