Frontier Lithium Inc. signed an exploration agreement with the North Spirit Lake First Nation to enable continued mineral exploration at its PAK lithium project in the Red Lake mining district of northwestern Ontario.
Frontier Lithium signed similar agreements with the Deer Lake First Nation and Sandy Lake First Nation in October 2016.
The agreements allow for the exploration of current and any additional mining claims or properties the company may acquire within the traditional territories of North Spirit Lake First Nation, Deer Lake First Nation and Sandy Lake First Nation.
Frontier Lithium said the agreement aims to help First Nations community members benefit from opportunities related to its exploration efforts in the area.
If the results of an ongoing pre-feasibility study on the PAK property are positive, the parties will develop an impact benefit agreement.
