Musk Metals Announces a Trenching Survey that will Explore Ten Targets, Covering Multiples Geophysical Anomalies on Its 100% Owned “Elon” Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada

2022-05-16 06:14:37

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 16, 2022 / Musk Metals Corp. (“Musk Metals” or the “Company”) (CSE:MUSK) (OTC:EMSKF) (FSE:II30) is pleased to announce it has completed the planning of a fourth exploration program for Phase 1, on it’s 100% owned “Elon” lithium project in Quebec. Permit approval is currently pending, exploration work is expected in mid-June to early July, targeting ten anomalies that will be trenched, mapped, and sampled for lithium-rich spodumene. Dynamic Discoveries Geosciences was mandated to identify targets using topographic imagery (LiDAR), cross referenced with a high resolution heliborne magnetic survey (2021) and DEM. Possible surface dykes cross cutting the interpreted intrusions, concordant with till anomalies which show a context alike the Quebec Lithium Mine located 600m south-west of the Elon Lithium Property (the ‘’Property”).

The Program

The Company is expected to trench 250 meters out of the 560-meters of proposed planning. Trenches will be 2m wide, overburden depth is estimated at 0 to 3 meters. Fifty (50) meters of channel sampling is expected, which will be determined following surface mapping once bedrock is exposed. Target priorities are set according to where the bedrock is superficial which is somewhat concordant to outcrop geochemical anomalies rich in lithium, tantalum, and yttrium. Unexplored targets in the present program will be subject to future exploration work, such as shallow drilling or further trenching.

The Property

The Elon Property is strategically located in Abitibi, Qc at approximately 600 meters northeast of the North American Lithium Project, formerly known as Mine Québec Lithium, which produced over 907,000 tons of material at 1.40% Li2O between 1955 and 1965 (Boily et al, 1989).
