Battery metals explorer Pure Resources (ASX:PR1) has begun its next phase of on-ground exploration at the Laforge Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada.
The company’s Non-Executive Director, James Warren, and Exploration Manager, Kane Freeman, have been on-site to begin the summer field campaign, which APEX Geoscience will be conducting to complete mapping and sampling aimed to delineate targets for follow-up drill testing.
Pure Resources says the exploration program follows an aerial reconnaissance mapping and sampling program over the Laforge Project, which was completed late in 2022.
Commenting on the exploration program, Pure Resources Executive Chairman Patric Glovac says: “We’re very excited to commence exploration properly on the Laforge Lithium Project that follows on from an opportunistic fieldwork campaign completed late last year.
“The previous fieldwork was completed on less than 5% of Pure’s 261km-square landholding”
The previous fieldwork was completed on less than 5% of Pure’s 261km-square landholding, and the company is looking forward to building on the previous work with the goal of generating targets for follow-up drill testing.
Whilst greenfields in nature, the Laforge Lithium Project is situated in the same geological province and exhibits analogous rock types, structural setting and geophysical properties as observed at the Corvette Lithium Trend, 65km to the southwest.”
Pure Resources is an ASX-listed exploration company focused on its existing portfolio of assets in Western Australia, which contains tenements prospective for copper, gold, and nickel, as well as its Laforge Lithium Project in Canada.
