Pure Resources Limited has announced the Ministère des Ressources naturelles et des Forêts (MERN) has officially granted PR1 (Canada) Ltd, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pure Resources Ltd, the remaining mining titles of the company’s Laforge Lithium Project.
The company’s Laforge Lithium Project is a significant belt-scale project, totalling 261km2, situated 65km northeast of Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s (ASX: PMT) Corvette discovery in the Superior Province, Quebec, Canada.
Pure recently engaged Canadian based geological consultants Apex Geoscience Ltd to conduct an aerial reconnaissance, mapping and sampling programme over the Project in an attempt to generate data prior to seasonal extreme weather conditions. Apex performed the maiden geological fieldwork campaign that covered less than 5% of the 261km2 project area.
The company believes the prospectivity of the project has been significantly enhanced through this reconnaissance field programme and plans to complete further, extensive field programs as soon as practicably possible.
240 outcropping rock samples were collected and submitted to ALS laboratories in Val- d’Or, Quebec, for preparation and ME-MS61 multi-element analysis with results expected to be returned to the company in six weeks. Three samples contained visual spodumene and fluoresced under ultraviolet light.
Executive chairman, Patric Glovac, said that given this is the maiden exploration programme over this greenfield area, further investigation is required to fully evaluate the mineralogy of the rock samples including the extent and tenor of possible lithium mineralization.
“The early observations of the exploration programme, further enhances the board’s view on the prospectivity of the project,” Mr Glovac said.
“Whilst greenfields in nature, the Laforge Project is situated in the same geological province and exhibits analogous rock types, structural setting and geophysical properties as observed at the Corvette Lithium Trend 65km to the southwest.
“We maintain the belief that the Laforge Lithium project represents a genuine opportunity to discover a significant lithium deposit in a Tier-1 jurisdiction and whilst we are excited with the data generated and the early observations from the recent geological site visit, we look forward to accelerating exploration once the snow clears and weather subdues in an effort to identify more outcropping pegmatites over the remaining >95% of or land holding.”
