Brigadier Gold Preparing for Spring and Summer Lithium Exploration Program at Nemaska 2 in Quebec

Apr 11, 2023

Brigadier has more than doubled the size of its Nemaska2 project, to 8,300 hectares, located about 23 km West of Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi mine, and is preparing to launch the property’s first-ever comprehensive exploration program, designed to test the project for its lithium potential.

With over 20 large (1,000 sq. meter) pegmatite outcrops, the property is yet undrilled.

The company has retained the expertise of veteran technical partner Geologica Group Conseil of Val D’Or, Quebec, to manage it exploration program, and has appointed Mr. Bill McGuinty as technical advisor.

Brigadier Gold is looking forward to getting boots on the ground on Nemaska2. And the company is preparing for a busy Spring and Summer exploration season.

Although the price of lithium has retreated in the past few months, there has been no shortage of media coverage for the critical metal, especially as it pertains to the unprecedented lithium exploration boom currently underway in Northern Quebec.

Patriot Battery Metals (PMET) major lithium discovery on their Corvette property in the James Bay region has placed Quebec firmly in the spotlight as a contender to lead Canada into the age of EV’s and battery storage, where lithium supply is critical to expanding local and global supply chains.

The Financial Post has recently published a comprehensive article covering North America’s first, and only large scale lithium mine going into production after a multi-year hiatus – a joint venture between Sayona Mining of Quebec, and Piedmont Lithium in North Carolina.

Along with a lack of supply, Piedmont CEO Phillips said that conversion plants could form a second bottleneck that help keep prices elevated for years to come.

“The big issue is it takes so long for capacity to come online,” he said, adding, “we’ll have shortages for decades to come.”

Driven by strategic political interests, this major event may be the first of many to come in Quebec, particularly with Critical Elements Rose lithium project, well into the feasibility stage, and Nemaska Lithium’s Whabouchi mine, one of the largest in the world by proven and probable reserves, working toward launching production.

Long story short – Northern Quebec is firmly on the map when it comes to lithium potential.
