Commenting on the inaugural exploration program, MMG's CEO, Mr Adam Ritchie, said:
"We are excited to commence the inaugural exploration program at the Brisk Lithium Project with our in country geological partners.
Dahrouge Geological Consulting are accredited with a multitude of significant discoveries across multiple commodities, including lithium and specialty metals.
The program is a critical step in our option period, as we aim to test and confirm several of the targets for their potential to contain lithium.
I am looking forward to personally joining the team in the field and reporting back on the findings, as we look towards completing the transaction, and securing 100% of the Brisk Lithium Project."
The Project was identified due to its prospective nature for hosting hard-rock, pegmatite-hosted lithium mineralisation by Dahrouge's proprietary targeting method. This included the review of pegmatite occurrences across the James Bay region of Quebec with the appropriate indicator-mineralogy for hosting spodumene-bearing pegmatites, within favourable host-rocks.
The Project is host to several known pegmatite outcrops. Historically, there has been no lithium-focused exploration completed on the Project. Multiple target areas have been identified based on the aforementioned criteria and confirmed using aerial imagery. See figures 2 to 6* for examples within Area 1. In addition to the indicator mineralogy, the Project is located along trend of the Cancet Project (Winsome Resources) and Corvette (Patriot Battery Metals).
