Mr. Richard Penn reports


Q Precious and Battery Metals Corp. has commenced the construction of drill pads and access routes on the La Corne South project, located north of Val d'Or, Que. The drill sites were designed to sample multielement volcanic massive sulphide targeted from geophysical survey (time-domain electromagnetic (TDEM) and magnetics) and from historic diamond drilling results reported by previous explorers.

A total of 10 drill pads are planned for the June, 2024, drill program. The initial drilling is to be located in an area that was previously drilled by Falconbridge Inc. in 2004. The 2004 drilling reported high-percentage sulphide mineralization containing significant copper and silver, with some zinc and gold values returned from core sampling (report GM 62134; also see the company's news release dated April 16, 2024). The TDEM survey completed by Q Precious & Battery Metals in 2022 reveals a conductive body located slightly further to the east of the mineralization intercepted by Falconbridge. The Q Precious & Battery Metals geologic team interprets the conductive body as potential massive sulphide mineralization, which is the target of the initial 2024 drilling. Q Precious & Battery Metals also recognizes that the La Corne batholith hosts lithium-bearing pegmatite (see the company's news releases dated June 21, 2023, and Oct. 15, 2023). The second drill hole is designed to test a magnetic low in the same general vicinity of the 2004 Falconbridge drilling, interpreted as granitic rock within the more magnetic-high volcanic rocks. The 2004 drilling completed by Falconbridge included a drill hole that returned elevated lithium within coarse-grained granite. This is of interest for further testing by Q Precious & Battery Metals. The Q Precious & Battery Metals geologic team is currently in conference in Val d'Or in order to discuss and finalize plans for the June, 2024, diamond drilling. Drilling is scheduled to commence immediately following construction of the first drill pads.
