Nemaska Exploration Reports Final Drill Results from Whabouchi Lithium Project

Nemaska Exploration has announced the final results of the last 15 holes from its Whabouchi lithium project. It has drilled 48 holes totaling 8,913 m. These final results continue to demonstrate the high-grade of the significant mineralized zone and verifies the occurrence of minor dykes in the Main zone’s south.

Nemaska has intersected 1.83% Li2O over 23.8 m, 1.83% Li2O over 42.7 m, 1.56% Li2O over 39.6 m and 1.61% Li2O over 42.2 m. It is anticipating the new resource estimate results following the previous diamond drill campaign.

The company has given the length of the intersection and the true thickness estimates in relation to the insight of the present geology. These holes were drilled at an average dip of 50° and azimuth of 330°. Normally, the pegmatite bands have South-East dip of 70° to 80° and an azimuth of 060°.

Nemaska has sent all the samples to the Table Jamésienne de Concertation Minière in Quebec for the process of preparation. The process includes inventory, drying, weigh, crushing, split and pulverization using inductively coupled plasma methods. Either ALS Chemex or SGS Mineral Services laboratory will test the pulverized samples for rubidium, lithium and beryllium.
