Musk Metals Identifies and Outlines 48 Potential Pegmatite Dykes at Pontax South Lithium Property in James Bay, Quebec

Nov 28, 2023

Musk Metals Corp. has announced that approximately 80% of the remote sensing work is now completed at Pontax South Lithium Property, strategically located in James Bay, Quebec.

Description of Pontax South Property Regional Setting

The Pontax South property consists of 105 claims covering 5,603 hectares (56 km2) and immediately adjacent to the south to Li-Ft Power Ltd.'s Pontax project which contains the most extensive Lithium anomaly within Li-Ft's Quebec portfolio. The Pontax South Property is also 60 km southwest of Stria Lithium's Pontax project and 90 km southwest of Brunswick Exploration Inc.'s Anatacau West project. 

The Causabiscau Shear Zone transects the Pontax South property over 16 km and another regional Shear Zone, oriented E-W, crosscuts the property over 6 km. Many Lithium deposits and occurrences are closely and spatially associated to shear zones, evidencing entrapment, and tend to form at or near the contact of mafic, ultramafic or amphibolite rocks which are reported at Pontax South.

Satellite Imagery Study Results

The remote sensing work is expected to be completed by end of November 2023 at Pontax South Lithium Property. Already, a total of 48 potential pegmatite dykes were identified and outlined, appearing as dome shaped linear features with positive relief. A sharp contrast with surrounding host rocks can also be observed and all potential dykes are oriented northeast, parallel or nearly parallel to the Causabiscau Shear Zone.

There are 7 potential pegmatite dykes' occurrences which are characterized by their length and width as follows:
