Ophir restarts exploration at Radis Lithium Project in James Bay, Quebec

Aug 31, 2023

Ophir Gold Corp.  announces that due to the lifting of the fire ban and improved conditions in the Western half of the Eeyou Istchee, James Bay region of Quebec, it has restarted exploration activities at the Radis lithium project.

Exploration activities will be prioritized on the three showings identified in early June which provided the results below (also see news release dated June 29th, 2023):

  • Chou Showing which returned three (3) outcrop samples of 2.33%, 1.68 % and 1.17%, Li2O
  • Navet Showing in the area historically described as tourmaline pegmatite with one (1) outcrop sample assaying 1.26% Li2
  • Courgette Showing, which returned assay values of 867 ppm and 227 ppm Ta2O5

Crews will focus on the detailed mapping of the identified showings, locating possible extensions along strike and prospecting areas yet to be fully assessed, including the 300 ft x 70 ft potential spodumene zone identified from historical data compilation (see news release dated March 14, 2023), which has yet to be evaluated.

The field work, along with the high-resolution magnetic data recently conducted will be utilized to assist drill targeting of the Chou Showing (2.33% Li2O), and the Navet Showing (1.26% Li20), as well as other potential targets the program identifies, for a maiden drill program in Q4 2023/ Q1 2024. Timing of the drill program will be based on both the availability of resources, as well as adequate field time to access and prioritize drill targets.
