QUEBEC – Nemaska Exploration of Quebec City reports that its Whabouchi lithium-beryllium deposit has an “impressive” width. Results of the current drill program include 92.1 metres at 1.39% Li2O and 133 ppm Be, 77.8 metres at 1.49% Li2O and 170 ppm Be, and 70.3 metres at 1.39% Li2O and 171 ppm Be. The 100%-owned property project is located in the Lac des Montagnes Formation.

The company says drilling has outlined a main zone that stretches 1,500 metres along strike and is 10 to 20 metres wide. Four other variable, spodumene-bearing pegmatite zones near the main zone have been traced to widths of 27 metres. All zones are open at depth.

Although the existence of mineralization on the Whabouchi property was known in the early 1960s, Nemaska completed the first systematic exploration program at the site late last year.
