("QPC") has entered into an option agreement with Superior Mining International Corporation ("Superior"), whereby Superior has the option to earn a 100% interest in the Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property (the "Property") in certain circumstances. The Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property was acquired to explore for lithium and is located in the James Bay Region, Quebec, over rocks of the prospective Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite, along the strike from Winsome Resources, Adina Project and Patriot Battery Metals Corvette Project. The Property is an early-stage exploration opportunity, comprising of a total of 333 Quebec mineral exploration claims, which amount to a total of 17,079.2 hectares or 170 square kilometers.
Vieux Comptoir Lithium Property Highlights:
The Vieux Comptoir Property is located in the James Bay region on Quebec, in the La Grande sub-province of the Superior Province. The Property encompasses lithium pegmatite prospective source rocks of the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite which have been identified on the Property. Regionally, the Vieux Comptoir Granitic Suite is known to host K-feldspar granite phases in pegmatite form which may host an abundance of spodumene.
The Property is located along the La Grande Greenstone Belt trend. The Corvette Shear Zone passes through the Property and such regional structures are known to focus pegmatite emplacement in the surrounding district.
The project area was targeted by the Company and the claims were acquired to obtain a strategic land position within the lithium prospective James Bay region. The Property is adjacent to established lithium pegmatite occurrences and active successful projects:
- Approximately 45 km east of Patriot Battery Metals Corvette Project where numerous Spodumene bearing pegmatites have been discovered, and recent drilling includes intersections up to 1.25% Li2O and 194 ppm Ta2O5 over 58.1 m.
- Approximately 45km west of Winsome Resources, Adina Project where early-stage explorations have identified outcropping pegmatites across the property returned results up to 4.89% Li2O.
The Vieux Comptoir Ltihium Property is located approximately 35 km from the nearest road and airstrip, with property access by float plane or helicopter.
Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement, upon execution of the Option Agreement, Superior shall pay QPC a cash payment of $7,500 and Superior shall have a right to conduct due diligence on the Property until January 15, 2023.
