VAL-D’OR, QC, Jan. 4, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ – Vision Lithium Inc. (TSXV: VLI) (OTCQB: ABEPF) (FSE: 1AJ2) (the “Company” or “Vision Lithium“) is pleased to announce the start of its maiden drilling program on the newly acquired Cadillac Lithium property (the “Property“). Following a successful channel sampling campaign, which returned up to 4.80% Li2O over variable widths (see full results in press release of December 30, 2021), the Company is immediately launching a drill campaign which will target multiple lithium bearing dikes on the property. The Cadillac lithium project is located just 10 km south of the mining town of Cadillac in the Abitibi region of Quebec, Canada. It is surrounded by infrastructure and skilled labour, being in the middle of Quebec’s mining heartland.
Yves Rougerie, President and CEO commented, “Our initial channel sampling program has returned some very high grade lithium values. We are now mobilizing a drill to the site to immediately begin testing the potential of the B dike. The drill should be operational this week. The drill will test the B dike along its 300 m exposed strike length as well as other lithium bearing dikes, none of which have ever been drilled. Additional results from the surface channel sampling program are also expected in January. We’re very excited about this first-ever drill program on the Cadillac Lithium property and look forward to releasing results to the public as soon as they become available.”
The Company has also staked an additional 12 claims to expand the Cadillac Lithium property to the East to cover prospective ground.
Furthermore, the Company announces that it has granted 4,200,000 incentive stock options to certain directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Company, pursuant to the Company’s incentive stock option plan. Each option is exercisable into one common share of Vision Lithium at a price of $0.21 per share for a period of 5 years from the date of grant. 50% of the options vest immediately and the remaining 50% will vest 6 months following the date of grant.
