Rock Edge Resources Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Val-D’or East Lithium Project

Mar 22, 2023

Rock Edge Resources entered an arm's length letter of intent (LOI) to acquire all of the assets of 1403437 BC LTD, including but not limited to the Val-d'Or East Mineral Claims in Quebec. The property consists of 90 mining claims covering approximately 5,292 hectares or 53 square km located 30 km southeast of Val-d'Or.  

Terms of the proposed agreement are cash payments of $30,000 upon closing of the proposed transaction, $30,000 due upon the one year anniversary of closing of the proposed acquisition and the issuance of 750,000 common shares   purchase warrants entitling holders to purchase one common share of the company with an exercise price of $0.20 per common share and expiring 3 years from the closing date of the proposed transaction.

Completion of the proposed transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including, but not limited to, execution of a definitive agreement and Canadian Securities Exchange acceptance. There can be no assurance that the definitive agreement will be executed or that the proposed transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.

Rock Edge’s property is contiguous to Sayona Mining Limited's property and next to Brunswick exploration property. The property lies chiefly on the metagreywacke of the Pontiac Geological Subprovince. The Réservoir Decelles Batholith is located 1-3km away from the Property and consists of a heterogeneous granite which contains muscovite-pegmatites. The vicinity of the Property was prospected for Cu-Ni (Lac Granet, Lac Louvicourt-South and Céré-Villebon) and the search for pegmatites were ignored until very recently.

The Lac-Granet showing, located on Sayona Mining Limited's claims, is located 3km away from the west limit of the Property and 10km north of the Réservoir Decelles Batholith. A drill program by Canadian Malartic Gold Mines Ltd. in 1955 (GM03673) documented several intercepts of aplite and fine grained granitic dykes as well as pegmatites with greenish muscovite. These pegmatites are likely linked to the batholith being formed at its margin. Such pegmatites are interpreted to be produced during late stages of crystallization, which is a primary condition to form LCT (lithium-tantale-cesium) pegmatites. The presence of muscovite mineral is also indicative of later stages of crystallization, a key indicative mineral for lithium-bearing pegmatites. Underexplored areas surrounding the Réservoir Decelles Batholith may therefore be considered prospective as they are susceptible to contain LCT type of pegmatites.

Additionally, anomalous lake bottom sediments in Li are found within the Property (5.2 ppm Li, 6.6 ppm Li) or less than 300 m away from its limits (10.2 ppm Li).

The property is also located approximately 65km southeast from the Sayona -Piedmont NAL Lithium Processing Plant which produced its first batch of spodumene concentrate. Sayona is also planning for commission of a refinery outputting Lithium Hydroxide approximately 70km southeast of the Property and a third refinery near Becancour some 200km southeast of the Rock Edge's Val d'Or East Lithium Project. When the refinery opens, Quebec will have the only rock to finish battery grade lithium Carbonate and Hydroxide outside of Asia, making Quebec the foremost lithium production hub outside of Asia.

Rock Edge Resources Ltd.is focused on acquiring and exploring mineral property assets, with a specific emphasis on the northwestern Ontario Lithium belt and the province of Quebec. Its objective is to locate, develop and bring to market economically viable properties that contain critical minerals, base metals, and precious metals. With the support of the Ontario government's Critical Minerals Strategy, Rock Edge is poised to take advantage of the growing demand for these essential minerals and contribute to the region's economic growth.
