Megawatt Lithium Identifies Anomalous Lithium Zones at Mistumis

Apr 4, 2023

Megawatt Lithium and Battery Metals Corp announced  the results of its soil sampling program at the Mistumis Project in the James Bay Region of Quebec found numerous general and broad areas of containing lithium within the boundaries of the project. 

Strong lithium correlation was also identified, particularly at Anomaly A, which contained Caesium and Rubidium. Some correlation is noted with mafic elements (Mg, Fe, Co) which may suggest the presence of Li-bearing material.

During late 2022 the company collected 1,918 soil geochemistry samples. The samples were analyzed for lithium and for correlations with lithium Pathfinder elements, Li-Cs-Rb & Mg-Fe-Co association. 

The expansive Mistumis project consists of 229 mineral exploration claims prospective for lithium covering an area of 12,116 hectares or 121 square kms in the prolific James Bay Region. The purpose of the 2022-2023 program was to explore the potential for lithium mineralization under cover and near surface by building a soil geochemical data base in conjunction with an airborne geophysical program within the project boundaries.

The Mistumis Property is in the southern region of the Middle and Lower Eastmain Greenstone Belt (MLEGB), approximately 10 km to the northwest of the Rose Lithium-Tantalum Project (Critical Elements Lithium Corporation; 34.2 Mt @ 0.9% Li2O). Like the Rose Lithium-Tantalum Project, the Mistumis Property is comprised of felsic intrusive lithologies (i.e., monzogranite, granodiorite, tonalite) with crosscutting diabase intrusions. Irregular pegmatite showings in contact with the felsic intrusives on the Mistumis Property were previously identified through regional-scale government mapping.

The company is planning the following further exploration programs in the area for 2023. 

Its recommending additional prospecting and mapping of potential mafic units in the northern area of the property and a phase 2 soil survey to expand grid and provide infill sampling data.

Also planned is a rock sampling program in areas of lichen cover where the outcrop may be exposed including a selective trenching program for geological mapping and rock sampling.

A Phase 1 Drill Program is also recommended where coincident geological data, structural data, and geochemical data outlines significant lithium potential. 

MegaWatt is a British Columbia based company involved in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in Canada. The company holds a 100% interest in the Route 381 Lithium Property, comprised of 40 mineral claims located in James Bay Territory, north of Matagami, Quebec, covering 2,126 hectares in 229 additional mineral exploration claims prospective for lithium, also in the James Bay area of Quebec covering an area of 12,116 hectares or 121 square kms. The company also owns properties in British Columbia and in Australia.
