Initial exploration defines planning for phase 2 efforts
VANCOUVER, BC (December 22, 2021) —Medaro Mining Corp. (CSE: MEDA) (OTC: MEDAF) (FWB: 1ZY) (“Medaro” or the “Company”), a multi-faceted venture aimed at developing innovative spodumene processing technology concurrent with its lithium focused mineral exploration efforts in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has received results of the Phase 1 exploration work program (the “Program”) on its CYR South Lithium Property (the “Property”) located in James Bay, Quebec, Canada.
The results of the recently conducted rock and soil sampling indicate that the northeastern part of the Property is more favourable for lithium, beryllium, and rare metals exploration, and that the southwestern claim block is more favourable for manganese and other metals exploration. The ground geophysical survey was used to identify local structures to help with lithium exploration targeting. The geophysical interpretation identified three fault zones and magnetic lineaments which are recommended to be followed up through compilation of historical data and a ground trenching and sampling work (see Figure 1 below).
The program was carried out in two stages where the first stage consisted of ground prospecting, rock and soil sampling, and mapping which was aimed at identifying a group of pegmatites for their potential to host lithium and other metals mineralization. The second stage consisted of a 46.2 line -km (4,661 readings) of ground magnetic geophysical survey to generate exploration targets for future work. A total of 150 selected channel cut and grab rock samples and 40 soil samples were collected during this work program.
- Lithium (Li) values were up to 166 parts per million(ppm).
- Beryllium (Be) values were up to 26,600 ppm (2.66% Be).
- Boron (B) values were up to 7,500 ppm (0.75% B).
- Manganese (Mn) values were up to 28,700 ppm (2.78% Mn).
- Rubidium (Rb) values were up to 1,290 ppm.
- Cesium (Cs) values were up to 992 ppm.
- Niobium (Nb) values were up to 121.4 ppm, and tantalum values were up to 47.4 ppm.
- Elevated values of Be and Nb occur in pegmatites with tourmaline, beryl, garnet and aplitic zones indicate that the pegmatite is fractionated and has the potential to contain lithium.
Sample locations were determined by hand-held GPS set to report locations in UTM coordinates. Conventional soil samples were collected from the B-horizon wherever possible. Relevant details pertaining to the soil and rock samples, such as location, lithology and sample type were recorded. The samples were bagged and tagged using best practices and were delivered to Activation Laboratories (“ACTLABS”), Ancaster, Ontario for sample preparation and analyses. ACTLABS is an independent commercial, accredited ISO Certified Laboratory.
The rock and soil samples indicated anomalous values of lithium, beryllium, barium, boron, manganese, rubidium, cesium, and niobium. The soil sample results show consistent values of the targeted elements mentioned above in rock samples and no definite trend can be interpreted due to the limited number of samples taken.
Company President & Director Faizaan Lalani notes, “The results from our phase 1 workplan at Cyr South have provided an invaluable first step towards focusing our plans for phase 2 and beyond. Clearly our lithium exploration efforts will redouble to the northeast, while we still intend to step-out and explore some of the more remote southwestern locations to assess and build a broad general mineralization picture. We are very pleased by the initial results and aim to continue towards developing our understanding of the underlying lithium prospect across the Property. Our efforts remain focused on defining drill targets and building project value.”
The Company is also pleased to announce a renewal agreement with Financial Star News Inc. (“FSN”) (address: 701 West Georgia Street, Suite 1500, Vancouver, V7Y 1C6; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) for marketing services for three months, commencing December, 2021.
