The Mavis-Fairservice property consists of a package of mineral claims currently being explored by International Lithium Corp (ILC). This package covers a pegmatite belt adjacent to Mavis Lake near Dryden, Ontario (Fig. 1).
The Mavis-Fairservice Lithium-Rare Metals Property, which consists of 19 contiguous claims (totalling 2,632 ha) within Brownridge Township, is located approximately 19 km northeast of Dryden in north-western Ontario. The property extends south and east of Mavis Lake and is bordered to the east by the Lola Lake Provincial Nature Reserve (Fig. 2).

2011 Drill Program
A total of 20 holes were drilled during August/September 2011 summer drill program at the Mavis-Fairservice project. The program totaled 1753m, as outlined in Table 1, a 46% increase from the original plan of 1200m drill due to encouraging results.
Of the 20 holes drilled, 17 intersected one or more intervals of pegmatite greater than 2 metres and up to 78 metres in length. 13 of 17 drill holes intersected pegmatites greater than 2 metres thick and returned notable lithium grades (Table 1). Coarse grains (>5cm wide) of spodumene, a major lithium ore mineral, were common. Fig. 3 shows a wide, coarse grained pegmatite intersection from drill hole MF11-12
