Spod Lithium Corp CEO Chris Cooper joined Steve Darling from Proactive to provide an update on the Phase I exploration program at the North Nipigon / Niemi lithium project in Ontario. The program's primary focus was to target spodumene-bearing pegmatite bodies within the extensive land package situated in the prolific Georgia Lake Pegmatite Field. The program encompassed the Niemi Block, North Nipigon Block A, and North Nipigon Block C. Cooper revealed that the company achieved positive results during the exploration program.
Notably, a sample from the Niemi Block returned a lithium oxide (Li2O) content of 1.507%, indicating the presence of mineralization. The company is actively expanding its understanding of the mineralized area within the Niemi Block. Additionally, a new lithium-bearing boulder was discovered on the north shore of Parole Lake, with a Li2O content of approximately 0.538%. Detailed mapping and sampling of the Parole Lake area will be prioritized to determine the source of these spodumene-bearing boulders. To date, a total of 107 surface grab samples have been collected and submitted to the laboratory for analysis.
Cooper also emphasized the significance of monitoring the wildfire situation in the James Bay region of Quebec. Spod Lithium prioritizes the safety and well-being of its personnel and will initiate surface exploration field activities at the Megali and Lithium Grande 4 projects once the situation improves and it is deemed safe to proceed.
