Volta Metals reveals outcrops over 6km at Root Lithium Project

Jul 19, 2023

Volta Metals Ltd. has completed prospecting programs in the Kim Lake, Root Lake and Store Lake properties in northwest Ontario. The prospecting program on Wakeman Lake property is underway with a follow-on MMI soil program planned.

Root Lake

Phase 1 field work on the Root Lake Lithium project concentrated on the northern portion of the property where outcropping pegmatite outcrops were noted. The exploration team has mapped and sampled multiple suspected LCT pegmatite outcrops identified along 6km strike. 

A total of 22 white, muscovite-bearing pegmatites containing abundant tourmaline and garnets were sampled. Pegmatite widths ranged from 10 to 300 cm and were traced up to 60 m along a strike of N60°E. Quartz cores were locally present along with plumose muscovite textures.

Kim Lake

Kim Lake was extensively covered due to the well-developed logging and grid roads throughout the property. The mapping and prospecting teams mainly encountered pink to white, and gneissic to massive granites mainly trending in the east-west direction. Multiple granitic, fine to coarse grained dikes were observed cross cutting and following the gneissic banding. 

Store Lake

Prospecting and mapping of the Store Lake property was limited to the eastern portion due to the lack of road and lake access to the central and western parts of the claim. The covered areas mainly contained pink gneissic granites trending in the east-west direction. At some of the topographic highs, massive pink granites were observed. 

Volta Metals Ltd. (CSE: VLTA) is a mineral exploration company focused on lithium, cesium and tantalum, and is based in Toronto, Ontario. It has optioned and is currently exploring a critical minerals portfolio of lithium, cesium and tantalum projects in Northwestern Ontario, which is considered to be one of the most prolific emerging hard-rock lithium districts in the world.

Wakeman Lithium Property

Geologically the Wakeman Property is located within the fertile Allison Lake Batholith, which is believed to be the source intrusion of the Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatite occurrences in the emerging Lithium field. The field crew is prospecting the southern portion of the Wakeman Lithium Project, as part of the Phase 1 exploration program.

Phase 2 will include MMI soil sampling, which will be following up on the Company's technical advisor Dr. Breaks' earlier work which returned anomalous Li, Rb, and Cs levels in addition to indicator minerals indicating advanced pegmatite evolution, all permissive signatures for the development of a Lithium bearing pegmatite system.
