First Phosphate initiates drilling program at Begin-Lamarche Phosphate Property in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean Region of Quebec, Canada

First Phosphate Corp. has announced the commencement of the Company’s exploration drilling program at its Bégin-Lamarche phosphate property in the Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean Region of Québec, Canada.

The drilling program will consist of a total of 4,000 metres of drill holes to test the continuity of high grade phosphate-bearing nelsonites that were found on surface as described in the Company’s press release dated January 24, 2023 and available at:

After obtaining results from field samples, geological reconnaissance, and a high resolution magnetic survey completed during the second half of 2022, we are excited to initiate drilling at our Bégin-Lamarche property,” said First Phosphate President, Peter Kent. “High grade phosphate assays in nelsonites coupled with a well-defined magnetic structure offer the potential for discovery of a large scale phosphate mineralisation area.

Phosphate-bearing rock layers in anorthosite are easily identified through magnetic surveying as the phosphate is associated with magnetite. The heli-borne magnetic survey completed in 2022 revealed a strong and continuous high magnetic structure that coincides with multiple grab samples that assayed over 10% P2O5. The characteristic high-magnetic signature of the type of deposit identified at the Bégin-Lamarche will be drill tested.
