K9 Gold discovers spodumene at James Bay lithium project in Quebec

Aug 29, 2023

K9 Gold Corp. says field work has been completed for the summer field program on the Company's JB Lithium Project in the James Bay Region of northern Quebec. The project covers 6692 Ha in 130 claims.


  • Prospecting has identified at least three pegmatite outcrops with spodumene, tourmaline and garnet present. These outcrops occur along well-defined ridges which are in excess of 500 meters in length.
  • The pegmatites occur on both the Rivière Salomon and the Lac Joubert-Tilly properties.
  • On the Rivière Salomon property, the pegmatites are spatially related to an occurrence of Senneterre dykes.
  • On the Lac Joubert-Tilly property, the pegmatites are related to occurrences of Tilly pegmatites.
  • 3524 soil samples and 136 rock samples were collected.

Analytical results will be reported after receipt and evaluation.

GroundTruth Exploration, of Dawson City, YK, was contracted to complete rock and soil sampling coverage of all the claims, along with prospecting and mapping. The crews were based out of Camp Otish, with helicopter support. A planned LiDAR and photogrammetry survey has been delayed because of the wildfire situation in the region and will be completed as soon as flying conditions are suitable.

Jeff Poloni, President and CEO of K9 commented, "We are extremely excited to see substantial pegmatite outcrops during this phase of our exploration program. Once we receive the analysis of the sampling we will be able to fine tune the next phase of work."
