Brigadier Gold Limited announced that field crews have completed a first phase of surface reconnaissance mapping, prospecting and sampling on its Nemaska2 Property, James Bay, Quebec.
The program successfully confirmed pegmatite occurrences mapped in historical government exploration and discovered new zones of previously undocumented shallow pegmatite mineralization. Approximately 2/3’s of the Company’s Nemaska2 property remains unexplored and will be the subject of near-term follow-on mapping and sampling.
The central swarm is approximately 90 hectares (900,000 square metres) at 1km x 1km. The SW swarm is ~100 hectares (1,000,000 square metres) at 1.2km wide and 2kms long (N-S). The 2023 Phase-1 exploration program is designed to identify targets for a third quarter/Q4 2023 drill program.
Sampling results will be made public when available. Brigadier’s goal for this and future exploration at Nemaska2 is to demonstrate the existence of bulk tonnage, near-surface, lithium-bearing mineralization. The Phase-1 program at Nemaska2 is being carried out by the Company’s technical partner Geologica Groupe-Conseil (“Geologica”) of Val D’or Quebec.
In addition, over 343 geo-observations, photos and descriptions were taken during this field program. The pegmatite dykes are generally hosted within dark pink medium grain size massive granites, vary in size from 30 cm to 4 metres, and have been observed over several tens of metres. The samples were sent to ALS Global Laboratories of Val-d’Or and assay results will be revealed as soon as available.
