Identifies Positive Nearology To Quebec And Ontario Projects
Musk Metals Corp. (CSE: MUSK) (OTC: EMSKF)has unveiled multiple upcoming 2021 work programmes on its highly prospective portfolio of 100% owned Lithium projects throughout world class mining camps in Canada.
Elon Lithium Project, Abitibi Quebec
Musk Metals’ 100% owned Elon Lithium project spans over 245 hectares in the La Corne and Fiedmont townships of Quebec, strategically located approximately 600m northeast of the Lithium Amérique du Nord project, which produced over 907,000 tonnes of material, at 1.40% Li2O from 1955 to 1965.
The Elon lithium property has excellent infrastructure support with road network, railway, electricity, water, and trained manpower available locally with active lithium exploration and mining projects in the vicinity.
Musk Metals has started a two-phase exploration work programme includes data compilation, geological mapping, trenching and sampling in Phase 1 followed by diamond drilling and metallurgical testing in Phase 2.
The company has recently completed a high-resolution heliborne magnetic survey conducted by Prospectair Geosurveys Inc. that identified magnetic anomalies in preliminary data.
The survey consisted of traverse lines oriented N015 to properly map the dominant magnetic/geological strike, and with a 50m line spacing. Control lines were flown perpendicular to traverse lines and at a 500 m line spacing with a total survey distance of 205 l-km. The closely spaced flight lines and low flying high resolution magnetic survey comissioned by Musk Metals will vector future exploration efforts to those areas of high merit.
Musk Metals is planning a two-phase exploration work programme include the following: data compilation, geological mapping, trenching and sampling in Phase 1 followed by diamond drilling and metallurgical testing in Phase 2.
Pakeagama Lithium Project, NW Ontario
Musk Metals’ 100% owned Pakeagama Lithium project spans 1,490 hectares and is located in the heart of the “Electric Avenue” pegmatite field of northwestern Ontario and contiguous to Frontier Lithium’s claim group and only 3.0 km south of the “PAK” and “SPARK” lithium deposits.
Neighbouring Frontier Lithium recently completed a Preliminary Economic Assessment that outlines life of project revenue of C$8.52 billion over 26-year total project life, and a chemical plant producing 23,174 tonnes of battery-quality lithium hydroxide monohydrate (LiOH-H2O) per year. The area hosts excellent infrastructure support with road network, railway, electricity, water, and trained manpower available locally.
CEO and Director, Nader Vatanchi, said Musk Metals is planning a two-phase exploration work programme including data compilation, geological mapping, trenching and sampling in Phase 1 followed by diamond drilling and metallurgical testing in Phase 2. Phase 1 programme is now being planned to commence summer 2021.
“Musk Metals is planning 2021 work programmes on both of our highly prospective lithium projects situated in active lithium camps with lithium deposits in close proximity,” Mr Vatanchi said.
“An in-depth interpretation of the recently completed high-resolution heliborne magnetic survey at Elon, is now underway to follow up on the multiple magnetic anomalies identified in the in preliminary data. This interpretation will focus on three favorable geological features for rare metal pegmatites and assist in identifying high priority drill targets.
“Field crews are being retained for initial exploration on our Pakeagama lithium property situated next to one of North America’s highest-grade, large tonnage hard-rock lithium resources in Ontario’s Electric Avenue, contiguous to and only 3.0 km south of the ‘PAK’ and ‘SPARK’ lithium deposits.
“We anticipate an active 2021 exploration season on our lithium and our gold properties as we continue to progress forward in some of Canada’s premier mining camps.”
