Q BATTERY PLANS ADDITIONAL SAMPLING AT LA CORNE
Mr. Richard Penn reports
Q BATTERY METALS EXPANDS TARGETED SAMPLING OF PEGMATITE AT LA CORNE SOUTH LITHIUM PROJECT, QUEBEC
Q Battery Metals Corp. is planning an expanded sampling exploration program on the La Corne South project, located north of Val d'Or, Que. During the previous exploration program, the geologic team mapped and sampled several narrow pegmatitic bodies within bedrock and several larger float blocks of pegmatitic material (see news release dated July 3, 2023). Samples were collected from these exposures and were submitted to the ALS laboratory for multi-element analysis including lithium.
The Q Battery Metals team have been targeting areas where prior sampling returned elevated lithium values from work programs completed in 2021. The 2023 reconnaissance work is guided by Dr. Mathieu Piche', a director and OGQ Geoscientist for Q Battery Metals. The geologic team will continue mapping and sampling pegmatite outcrops in the primary area of interest. The team also plans to prospect zones targeted for pegmatites from the previously completed high-detail magnetics survey. From the work conducted so far, interpretations indicate a cluster of pegmatite veins and dykes associated with topographic ridges within the targeted area of the property.
The intention of 2023 exploration on the La Corne South project is to identify lithium-bearing pegmatites that can be diamond drilled this coming fall and winter.
The La Corne South Property is located over the southern portion of the La Corne Batholith. At least 14 lithium projects are associated with the margins of the La Corne Batholith within 20 kilometres of the QMET claims. Sections of the batholith are pegmatitic which host the lithium. Within 10 kms, the North American Lithium project is a historic lithium mine that now lists proven and probable mineral reserves estimated at 29.2 million tonnes (Mt), grading 0.96% Li2O, with contained Li2O of 280,300t. As well, the potential for VMS deposition containing Cu-Zn-Ag is evident on the La Corne South claims.
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% interest in mineral claims within Quebec and British Columbia, with exploration targeting critical and precious metals.
