First Lithium has an option to earn up to a 80% interest in the Whitesides Gold, Nickel, Copper Property.

The Property comprises 43 claims consisting of 565 claim units located in Carscallen, Turnbull, Massey and Whitesides Townships in the emerging West Timmins mining camp.

The Whitesides land package is adjacent to Melkior Resources’ Big Marsh property to the south, Claim Post Resources’ Kamistotia property to the northeast, approximately 10 km northwest of Lakeshore Gold's West Timmins Gold Property, 35 km southeast of Xstrata's Montcalm Nickel /Copper Mine and 10-14 km southwest from the historic Kam Kotia, Jamison, Jameland and Genex copper VMS mines.

The Whitesides project’s host geology appears to be conducive for gold exploration in the east, nickel/copper in the west and potential VMS throughout the northern region of the property. The project also surrounds the historic De Santis Gold Mine (Turnbull Township) to the north and west. There are at least four known gold occurrences along a strong north/south structure that runs through the property.

Nearly 70% of the Property is covered by overburden which represents large areas of ground with relatively unknown geological and structural information. The Company plans to conduct both airborne and ground geophysics on the property to help create a better understanding and interpretation of underlying structure and geology.
