The Initiation of DIRT Exploration of Cape Town

Arbor Metals Corporation, a mining exploration company, has reported that it has started DIRT Exploration of Cape Town, South Africa.

As part of this project, a long-wave infrared survey ("LWIR") and interpretation of high-resolution satellite imagery will be carried out over the four blocks that comprise the Jarnet Lithium Project and the surrounding area in the James Bay region of Quebec.

Around 3,759 hectares have been covered by the Jarnet Lithium Project, comprising about 70 map-designated claims.

Located less than two km northwest of Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s (“PMET”) CV-5 pegmatite target, the Jarnet South block is the main focus of Arbor’s ongoing exploration efforts.

Lately, PMET reported a high-grade extension (Nova Zone) of the CV 5 target of 87.7 m averaging around 3.13% Li2O (lithium oxide), including 19.8 m of 5.28% Li2O.

LWIR analysis can be used to identify or map the distribution of minerals over extensive areas covered by foliage and shallow cover. It uses reflectance spectroscopy against a set of known standards and proprietary satellite processing data. 

As a result of its ground-penetrating nature, long-wave bands of infrared radiation can be used to view mineral spectra to shallow depths.

This survey, collectively with satellite imagery analysis, will integrate data and famous pegmatite occurrences that have been determined from the Company’s 2022 reconnaissance-scale field program.

Arbor is currently collecting the present evaluation and regional data on the four Jarnet claim blocks and encircling properties.

While some of the neighboring properties have not received a lot of attention on lithium mineralization, there is available geological and geophysical assessment data relating to exploration for base (Cu, Zn, Pb) and precious (Au, Ag) metal targets. 

The Jarnet South Block consists of the southern and eastern boundaries adjacent to PMET Corvette Property, while the North Block is contiguous to PMET’s Corvette Property present on the southwest boundary.

The DIRT interpretive report and the Company’s compilation will be utilized to improve suggested exploration targets on the Jarnet Project for the 2023 field season.
