Medaro Mining Corp., a multi-faceted company focused on developing ground-breaking spodumene processing technology while also conducting lithium exploration in Canada, has announced that it has signed a contract with Forage Hebert Inc. to drill the Lac La Motte site near Val D’Or, Quebec. The Property is made up of 11 mineral claims that encompass a total of 519 hectares.
Hebert has been hired by Medaro to drill a set of NQ size diamond drill holes on lithium areas at Lac La Motte to test the property’s lithium viewings. A baseline of 1,000 m and a maximum of 3,000 m are included in the contract. Since Herbert is situated in Amos, Quebec, mobilization costs will be kept to a bare minimum. The mobilization will begin the week of the 13th of June.
The Lac La Motte Property is situated 40 km northwest of Val-d’Or in Abitibi, Quebec, in a mining-rich region. There are numerous active lithium prospects/mines within 5 to 20 km of the Property.
The Mine Quebec Lithium project is the most developed, followed by the Authier lithium project. On the Site, historical diamond drilling in the 1950s showed results of above 1% lithium oxide in drill holes.
Following the acquisition of the Lac La Motte Property in May 2022, the Company quickly started a ground exploration and sample program. Several lithium pegmatite outcrops on the Property have been discovered and verified by the field prospecting program. The samples taken during the current prospecting work have been sent to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster, Ontario, and the findings will be published as soon as they are available.
Medaro Mining is excited to drill the Lac La Motte property. Medaro has committed to an extensive exploration program this summer at Lac La Motte and look forward to publicizing the results of our field program as soon as available, followed closely by assays of our recently commenced drill program.
Michael Mulberry, CEO, Medaro Mining Corp.
“The current drill program will help not only to confirm the historical drilling work but also can be helpful in enhancing the footprint of the known lithium pegmatites on the Property,” Mulberry concluded.
