Resource Base to start exploration at Wali and Ernst Lake projects in Quebec within days

Resource Base (ASX:RBX) will launch exploration on its Wali and Ernst Lake projects within James Bay in Quebec, Canada on 10 August 2023.

The company has identified numerous geological features (dykes and faults), magnetic structures and now visual pegmatite targets, which is the immediate focus for the on-ground fieldwork.

Explo-Logik in consultation with Resource Base’s in-country team will be targeting over 20 walk-up locations with samples to be sent directly to ALS in Val-d’Or, Quebec for analysis.

Addressing the forthcoming works, Executive Director Brent Palmer says: “The in-country team, accommodation and helicopter are engaged, and we are eager to test the visual targets along the 1,600m of strike.”

Resource Base has 100% ownership of two lithium exploration projects, Wali and Ernst Lake, both in the highly prospective James Bay lithium province, host to several major players and significant recent discoveries.

In addition, Resource Base owns Mitre Hill, a clay-hosted REE project in Victoria and South Australia, with a maiden JORC Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 21 Mt @ 767 ppm TREO; as well as the Black Range Project, Victoria, targeting volcanic massive sulphide, epithermal and porphyry copper, gold, and zinc mineralisation.
