Jourdan drills 0.3 m of 0.78% Li2O at Preissac-Lacorne
JOURDAN RESOURCES Inc. has released the results from a 1,500-metre drill program completed on the PreissacLacorne lithium portfolio and optioned from Alix Resources Inc. and one other claim that is owned by Jourdan.
The centre of the drill program is 1.5 kilometres northwest of the adjacent Quebec lithium mine owned and operated by North American Lithium. The adjacent mine announced commercial production of spodumene concentrate on June 2, 2017, with production targeted for the Chinese market.
A total of 1,500 metres of drilling was completed in 12 drill holes, 11 holes on the Preissac-Lacorne lithium portfolio and one hole
(WL17-12) on claims owned 100 per cent by Jourdan Resources.
Several holes had multiple widespread mineralized zones space up to 140 metres apart within the same drill hole, indicating a wide zone of spodumene-bearing pegmatite dikes exists in the area. Drilling covered a strike length of 750 metres of spodumene-bearing pegmatite dikes.

“These highly encouraging first-pass drill results confirm widespread lithium mineralization in the Pressiac-Lacorne lithium belt. These targets were chosen due to the fact that they were already permitted by Alix and ready to be drilled. The fact that mineralization was present in nine out of 12 holes exceeded our expectations. We have now had enough time to carefully select our next targets on the claims west of the North American Lithium’s Quebec lithium mine, as well as on our Vallee property, which borders the North American Lithium’s Quebec lithium mine property to the east. The pegmatite dikes appear to be structurally and not stratigraphically controlled, and we plan to expand on historical drilling and the success of this drill program to test from mineralization along strike two kilometres east and two kilometres west of the our neighbour’s producing lithium mine,” said Michael Dehn, chief executive officer.
We seek Safe Harbor.
