Q BATTERY METALS CORPORATION STAKES CRITICAL MINERALS PROJECT- HECTOR PROPERTY MANICOUAGAN, QUEBEC
Q Battery Metals Corp. has staked the Hector strategic metals property located in the Manicouagan region of Quebec. Historic work that included trenching, bedrock sampling and diamond drilling so far has discovered four uranium zones over a north-south extent of 4.7 kilometres (Quebec's Systeme d'information geominiere (SIGEOM) website summary). These zones are made up of several veins of uranium pegmatite hosted in grey and white granitic gneiss. The pegmatitic veins were mapped up to 20 metres in width. In 2008, Resources Appalaches completed 22 diamond drill holes focused within the southern portion of the property, with 20 of the holes intersecting pegmatite and 11 of those returning elevated uranium (up to 630 parts per million). The company warns the reader that Q Battery has not verified historic results, and there is no guarantee that the historic values will be obtained in future work programs.
The Hector property is accessed by paved highway for 470 km east of Quebec City with 20 km of gravel industrial road north from Highway Route Jacques-Cartier (Hwy 138) to the area of historic drilling.
Q Battery Metals president Richard Penn states: "The company is very pleased to have acquired the Hector project to include in our growing portfolio of Quebec-based critical metals projects. The property is road-accessible with accommodations and support located at the town of Godbout within 40 kilometres of the area of future work."
The results from historic exploration by other companies will greatly assist Q Battery Metals with future work programs on the Hector property. The Q Battery geologic team is in the process of compiling all of the information available for the project and will provide a more detailed summary in the near future.
Q Battery Metals exploration programs undertaken in Quebec are supervised by Dr. Mathieu Piche, OGQ, with office located north of Val d'Or. He is also a Q Battery Metals company director. The company has 100-per-cent interest in mineral claims within Quebec with exploration targeting critical and precious metals.
