About Nemaska2 Lithium Project
The Nemaska2 Project consists of 162 map-designated mining titles (Nemaska2 and Nemaska2 Extension) covering a total area of 8,300 hectares and is located in northern Québec, approximately 160 kms east of James Bay, near the community of Nemaska. Neighbouring Brigadier’s Nemaska2 Project are claims held by Li-Ft Power, Brunswick Exploration, Dios Exploration, Critical Elements Lithium, and ~23 kilometres to the east lies Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi Project.
The Nemaska2 section of the property hosts at least 20 white pegmatite outcrops, each approximately 1,000 square metres in size. The Quebec government carried out a large sampling program over Nemaska2 and the geological findings suggest these white pegmatites contain spodumene. More information can be found in the National Instrument 43-101 technical report filed by the Company under its SEDAR profile on March 14, 2023
Further exploration of the property has been recommended to identify possible additional pegmatite outcrops and spodumene occurrences. Available data from the Nemaska2 Extension property area will be compiled ahead of the Company’s initial exploration program this summer.
Mr. Garry Clark, P. Geo., a member of the Company’s Board of Directors, a “Qualified Person” under NI 43-101, has reviewed the technical contents of this news release and has approved the disclosure of the technical information contained herein.
