Q BATTERY COMPLETES SAMPLING PROGRAM AT LA CORNE
Mr. Richard Penn reports
Q BATTERY METALS CONTINUES SAMPLING PEGMATITE ON THE LA CORNE SOUTH LITHIUM PROJECT, QUEBEC
Q Battery Metals Corp. has provided an update of exploration on the La Corne South project, located north of Val d'Or, Que. The Q Battery Metals geological team has recently completed a more thorough sampling of pegmatite outcrops that were discovered earlier this year (see news release dated July 3, 2023). For this recent sampling program, the company utilized a diamond-bladed rock saw in order to cut greater volume of material from the pegmatite outcrops that were not conducive to standard rock hammer and chisel sampling. All samples have been submitted directly to ALS Laboratory in North Vancouver, B.C.
The geologic team undertook a property-wide tour of the La Corne South property lithium target area as part of the recent August, 2023, reconnaissance. The property is well crossed by good-condition resource roads. The property has a significant cover of sand, silt and gravel deposited during the last period of glaciation. It is recommended that the company continue undertaking ground geophysical surveys in order to identify potential pegmatite beneath the sediment cover. The ground surveys (resistively and gravity) will add to the geophysical data obtained from the previously completed drone-supported magnetics and ground IP (induced polarization) chargeability surveys to provide more defined targets for eventual diamond drilling.
Lithium, cesium, tantalum, rubidium, niobium, tin and boron are considered pathfinder elements that can form halos related to the presence of LCT (lithium-cesium-tantalum) pegmatites. The results indicate several elevated results for pathfinder elements are located within or immediately adjacent to the Q Battery Metals claims. The company intends to complete an initial prospecting program targeting these geochemically highlighted areas.
Q Battery Metals exploration programs undertaken in Quebec are supervised by Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ, with an office located north of Val d'Or. He is also a Q Battery Metals company director. The company has 100-per-cent interests in mineral claims within Quebec and British Columbia, with exploration targeting critical and precious metals.
