Balkan Mining and Minerals (ASX:BMM) has begun exploration activities at its wholly owned Corvette North and Corvette Northwest Lithium Projects in Quebec, Canada.
The company says since it pegged both projects, it has focused on advancing them by preparing for an initial surface mapping and rock chip sampling program. This exploration program will support the definition of targets for follow-up exploration works.
Exploration activities will be focused on areas within the projects that hosts amphibolites, known for hosting spodumene-bearing pegmatites. Balkan says both projects host these formations.
Commenting on the exploration activities, Balkan Mining and Minerals, Managing Director Ross Cotton says: “Within 6 months of adding Corvette North and Corvette Northwest to our Canadian exploration portfolio, the BMM team is embarking on an important phase of summer exploration work commencing in June.
Our program will include surface mapping and rock chip sampling, which are vital tools in advancing these exciting projects.”
The company adds that its work to date has encompassed recruiting the necessary personnel and contractors and awaiting favourable weather conditions to allow the programs best chance of success.
Balkan Mining and Minerals is an ASX-listed company focused on the exploration of ‘highly prospective’ lithium projects across Europe and Canada.
The company’s Corvette North and Northwest projects are located in northern Quebec and are proximal to Patriot Battery Metals’ (ASX:PMT) Corvette Project.
