Midland Exploration has announced the completion of a geological evaluation of the outstanding lithium potential on its wholly owned Galinée project.
Midland’s Galinée project is situated about 4 km east of the favorable Adina new lithium discovery owned by Winsome Resources, which recently reported drill intercepts reaching 1.34% Li2O spanning 107.6 m.
The latest drilling results (DDH AD-22-043) by Winsome stated that spodumene-bearing pegmatite intersected approximately 1.6 km north-east (Adina far east Zone) of the discovery showing and approximately 1.0 km north-east of formerly stated intersections. Drillhole AD-22-043 intersected 17.1 m of spodumene-bearing pegmatite.
This Adina yield is situated at the intersection between amphibolites of the Trieste Formation to the south and felsic intrusives to the north. This intersection is marked by a huge structure that most probably regulated the emplacement of pegmatites on the Adina showing.
This same extremely favorable intersection is seen on Midland’s Galinée property covering over 7 km and has never been tested for lithium in the past. This strongly indicates that the Galinée project exhibits outstanding potential for the exploration of lithium.
The Galinée project comprises 54 claims spanning a total of 28 km2. Factually, this project was explored for its gold potential and has never been investigated for its exceptional lithium potential. Midland is presently scheduling an exploration program that will be set in motion shortly.
Worldwide demand for lithium is increasing to match the requirements of the electric vehicle industry and taking into consideration the unsteady geopolitical context. Midland’s wholly-owned Galinée project offers an opportunity to possibly help meet this increasing demand.
Mineralization occurring on the Adina project held by Winsome is certainly not suggestive of mineralization that may be identified on Midland’s Galinée property.
