Canada Silver Cobalt Works Inc. has provided an update on its initial exploration work at five properties with EV battery metals potential in Québec.
Canada Silver Cobalt owns 14 battery metals properties in Quebec totalling 31,201 hectares.The Company has begun grassroots exploration on four properties located on the North Shore (Côte-Nord) of the St. Lawrence River: Grande Portage, LPM-LPMN, Boudrias (North and South) and B30 Shear.
The technical team used existing logging roads and ATV/walking trails, and activities included access reconnaissance, prospecting favorable rock types, and using the Beep Mat to locate conductors. On select properties where conductive rock was identified using the Beep Mat tool, channel samples were taken with a rock saw. The team collected 35 samples which have been sent to a laboratory and assay results will be disclosed once received and validated.
The Beep Mat is a robust exploration tool that enhances geological mapping and prospecting activities. It detects magnetic and conductive bedrock underneath the location that it traverses. It provides real-time EM and magnetic data that can be used to identify prospective outcrops that might not otherwise be visible if covered with overburden.
The fifth property – Lowney-Lac Edouard – is located in central Quebec, East of La Tuque, and is where a helicopter VTEM survey has been completed. The preliminary maps of the survey have been provided and the Company is awaiting the final report from Geotech. Five anomalies are identified with the VTEM System B-Field Z-data profiles map. The Company plans to follow-up the results of the geophysical survey once the data has been reviewed.
“This has been quite an energetic year for Canada Silver Cobalt, filled with activities at five other battery metals properties besides our flagship Graal property in Quebec and at the Castle silver-cobalt and Eby-Otto gold properties in Ontario. We are proud of our technical team for accomplishing so much this year. We plan to keep the momentum going and can’t wait to show you the results of our exploration work as we receive them and our progress in other exciting developments for our Company,” stated Matthew Halliday, P.Geo., President and Chief Operating Officer.
