Q2 Metals concludes 2024 Winter Program at Mia Lithium Property, James Bay

Feb 27, 2024

"The winter drill program at the Mia Property has confirmed the spodumene mineralized pegmatite at the western end of the Mia Trend," said Q2 Metals VP Exploration, Neil McCallum. "The drilling has successfully evaluated a large portion of the Mia Trend that had been explored at the surface. I look forward to having our team conduct additional property-wide mapping and sampling this summer to get a greater understanding of the remainder of the Mia Property as a large portion of it has not yet seen any exploration."

Q2 Metals Corp. is pleased to announce it has concluded its winter 2024 drill program at its wholly owned, 8,668-ha Mia Lithium Property located in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay Territory of Quebec.

The Winter Drill Program commenced on January 18th at the west end of the more than 10-kilometre-long Mia Lithium Exploration Trend (the "Mia Trend") which is located 22 km from the Billy Diamond Highway, proximal to major hydro-powerline and all-season road infrastructure. A total of 20 drill holes were completed on the Mia Trend for approximately 3,085 Metres (Figure 1).

The work completed at the Mia Zones 1-3 at the western end of more than 10-kilometre-long Mia Trend consisted of 11 drill holes (Tables 1 and 2, Figures 1-4). Several drill holes intersected visual spodumene-bearing pegmatite intervals. Drill holes MIA24-033 and 036, located in the centre of the mineralized zone, highlight the potential with aggregate lengths of spodumene-mineralized core intervals of 19.0 and 23.7 metres, respectively.

A total of 9 additional drill holes were completed along the remainder of the more than 10-kilometre-long Mia Trend.

The geological team has completed the processing of all 2024 drill holes, and the samples have been dispatched to the lab for analysis. The preliminary pegmatite intervals of each drill hole are reported in Table 1 and the basic location and dip/azimuth details are also included below in Table 2.

The presence of spodumene in drill core is based primarily on visual identification, and a portable LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) analyzer was used to confirm the presence of lithium, which strongly suggests the presence of spodumene. There are drill holes that have intersected pegmatite without visual identification of spodumene however, analytical results will ultimately confirm the presence of lithium mineralization.
