QcX Gold set for lithium exploration at Kali East Block, James Bay, Quebec

Aug 8, 2023

QcX Gold Corp. has engaged the services of ALS Goldspot Discoveries Ltd. to conduct an extensive, lithium-focused surface exploration program on the Kali East Block of its Golden Giant Project. Being the easternmost of the three claim packages that make up the Golden Giant Project, the Kali East Block is located only 6km from Allkem's James Bay Lithium project, known as one of the largest lithium deposits in Canada moving towards development. QcX is surrounded by major lithium developers and explorers in James Bay, including Allkem, Patriot Battery Metals, Brunswick Exploration and LiFT Power. The Kali East Block is located directly adjacent to the Billy Diamond Highway, making for easy access and low-cost exploration.

The program is set to commence towards the end of August. ALS Goldspot are providing a highly skilled team of geologists and field technicians with significant experience in James Bay lithium exploration. The Contractor has begun compiling available data on the project in preparation for the field campaign, which will be comprised of outcrop sampling and a systematic till sampling program. The goal will be to find the source of the pegmatitic boulders that were found scattered across the Kali property during the most recent field program (see press release dated January 23, 2023)

Aaron Stone, Vice President Exploration for QcX, stated, "Now the fire situation has subsided in northern Québec, it is great to be able to move forward with ALS Goldspot to complete our exploration campaign before the 2023 field season ends. I am excited to be joining the team in James Bay to participate in the program on Kali East. This knowledgeable geological team has vast amounts of experience and the latest state-of-the-art technology to uncover any spodumene bearing pegmatites that may exist on the property." 

The Company has purchased high-resolution satellite imagery to aide with exploration planning. It also holds magnetics data from a previously flown airborne survey, which is an important tool in mapping geological structures across the property. All existing data is currently being compiled and analysed to highlight areas of focus on Kali East. 

The Golden Giant project comprises three packages of claims, Golden Giant East, Golden Giant West and the Kali East block, covering 18,992 hectares and is contiguous to Azimut Exploration Inc.'s Patwon project.
