The Wapistan Lithium Project is a large land package comprised of 219 claims totaling 10,722 hectares located within the James Bay region of Quebec. The property is easily accessed by all-season roads, hydro and has two nearby communities offering exploration and mining services.
The Wapistan Project is located between 8 and 30 kilometres easterly from the lithium prospects and spodumene bearing pegmatites of the nearby Q2 Metals’ Mia Property (QTWO – TSXV) and Ophir Gold’s Radis Property (OPHR – TSXV); all which form part of the same greenstone belt.
At Mia, two notable showings include Mia Li-1 (0.47% Li2O) and Mia Li-2 (2.27% Li2O), were recently sampled by Q2 Metals. These occurrences of spodumene pegmatite are well documented and located within the western part of the Yasinski Lake (greenstone) Belt. Historical work in 1959 (Main Exploration Company Ltd., GM10200) within the Mia Property has mapped an approximate 8.3 km trend of pegmatite (up to 30.5 metres wide) extending in the same greenstone belt from the Mia occurrences eastward toward the Wapistan Property.
The Wapistan Project has never been explored with lithium or critical elements in mind, despite the well positioned location. At Wapistan, a small number of pegmatites are described within the regional provincial SIGEOM database.
