Vancouver, British Columbia – April 13, 2023. Brigadier Gold Limited (the “Company”) (TSXV: BRG | FSE: B7LM | USA: BGADF) is pleased to share its plans for upcoming exploration of its Nemaska2 Lithium property (“Nemaska2”), James Bay, Quebec. Brigadier’s goal for this and future exploration at Nemaska2 is to prove the existence of bulk tonnage, near surface, lithium bearing mineralization.
The focus of the upcoming program is to confirm and further delineate pegmatite outcrops mapped and sampled in historical government work at Nemaska2 with a particular focus on the ~20 white pegmatite outcrops, each approximately 1,000 square metres in size. Particular attention will be applied to discover the possible existence of pegmatite dykes or other favorable structures. Subject to ground conditions including snowpack, Phase-1 exploration is forecast to commence June 1, 2023. The Company anticipates this initial program will delineate targets for a mid- summer inaugural drill program.
The Phase-1 program was developed with input from Brigadier’s senior technical advisor and seasoned geologist Bill McGuinty and will be carried out by the Company’s technical partner Geologica Groupe- Conseil (“Geologica”) of Val D’or Quebec. The Phase-1 program will include:
- compilation of all historical work and available government data
- mapping and sampling of know pegmatite outcrops
- reconnaissance prospecting of areas not previously the focus of historical work
- rock analysis and assaying
- technical report writing
“We are excited to initiate our phase 1 work program on our highly prospective Nemaska2 property, which has not seen significant exploration on it’s pegmatite outcrops to date”, stated Robert Birmingham, President of Brigadier Gold. “Partnering with Geologica and Mr. McGuinty, both experts in the James Bay mining region, really will help bolster Brigadier’s objective of aggressively advancing the Nemaska2 property. The company also understands that “drill bit” success is key to unlocking project and shareholder value.”
The Quebec government has previously carried out a large sampling program and also an airborne magnetometric survey over Nemaska2 which shows the presence of several low magnetic anomalies likely corresponding with fractures or shear zones within the granitic Valiquette Pluton. These structures are generally favourable to the formation of pegmatites and other metals. The presence of pegmatites recognized during the regional reconnaissance mapping, anomalous values of Li and Cs in regional till sampling, and the presence of a major lithium deposit (Whabouchi Deposit) in the area, are all elements favourable to the existence of mineralization sought by the Company.
