James Bay Minerals (ASX:JBY) has begun a regional helicopter reconnaissance exploration program across its La Grande Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada.
The $23.89 million market capitalisation company will conduct the program across the Joule, Aero, and Aqua properties within La Grande and will be focusing on the identification and mapping of regional pegmatites.
These ‘high-priority’ areas have been identified through the review and assessment of historical government stratigraphic surveys, geophysical maps, and satellite images by teams from James Bay and its exploration partner, Breakaway.
James Bay says the team will map all regional locations and generate follow-up targets for further exploration activities.
This program is being undertaken in parallel with the inaugural field exploration campaign currently underway at Aero.
The company notes that any significant outcomes from the helicopter exploration program will be reported as they come to hand.
James Bay Minerals is a newly listed exploration company focused on its wholly owned 224km-square land holding within the James Bay region of Quebec. The company’s tenement package is prospective for lithium.
