The results of the program have so far identified high grade lithium up to 4.74% Li 2O over 15 meters in three distinct pegmatite zones, and high grade tantalum up to 192ppm Ta 2O 5 over 14 meters in one of these zones. A diamond drill program has been independently recommended and on March 1, 2013, the Company announced that a Phase I, 6 hole, 1,000 meter drill program commenced. About Houston Lake Mining Inc.
