Musk Metals Announces Permits Received on Its 100% Owned "Elon" Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2022 / Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:MUSK) (OTC:EMSKF) (FSE:1I30) is pleased to announce it will start its fourth exploration program for Phase 1, on its 100% owned ‘'Elon'' lithium project in Quebec. Permit has been received, exploration work is expected to start mid-June, targeting six anomalies that will be trenched, mapped, and sampled for lithium-rich spodumene. Dynamic Discoveries Geosciences was mandated to identify targets using topographic imagery (LiDAR), cross referenced with a high resolution heliborne magnetic survey (2021) and DEM. Possible surface dykes cross cutting the interpreted intrusions, concordant with till anomalies which show a context alike the Quebec Lithium Mine located 600m south-west of the Elon Lithium Property (the ‘'Property'').

The Program

The Company is expected to trench approximately 175 meters out of the 350 meters of proposed planning. Trenches should be 2m wide, overburden depth is estimated at 0 to 3 meters. Fifty (50) meters of channel sampling is expected, which will be determined following surface mapping once bedrock is exposed. Target priorities are set according to where the bedrock is superficial which is somewhat concordant to outcrop geochemical anomalies rich in lithium, tantalum, and yttrium (Table 1). Unexplored targets in the present program will be subject to future exploration work, such as shallow drilling or further trenching.

Table 1: Trenches Details.

Interpreted pegmatite dyke using DEM-high and cross-referenced with LiDAR topographic imagery. Two blocs down-ice returned highest Li values of Fall 2021 prospection survey.

Possible pegmatite dyke swarm, identified with Low Mag, high DEM and cross-referenced with LiDAR topographic imagery.




2 - 3


Possible pegmatite dyke swarm interpreted with Low Mag, high DEM and cross-referenced with LiDAR topographic imagery.




2 - 3


Interpreted pegmatitic dyke swarm, 300 meters up-ice from ‘'Zone A'' which returned highest Li values in outcrop samples, including one value at 101ppm Li. Dyke swarm would be in inner zone of interpreted intrusion.




2 - 3


Possible pegmatite dyke identified with high DEM. Pegmatite dyke would be in inner zone of interpreted intrusion.




2 - 3


Possible pegmatitic dykes identified with high DEM, and possible dyke swarm identified with Low Mag. Cross referenced with LiDAR topographic imagery.

Mountain Bike trails, Cross-Country Ski trails and other trails are present on the southern part of the Property. To prevent damage to these trails, the Company will be using existing roads outside of the trail system to access their trenches. This led to the Company to reduce the number of trenches and sampled length to be worked in June (Figure 1).

The Property

The Elon Property is strategically located in Abitibi, Qc at approximately 600 meters northeast of the North American Lithium Project, formerly known as Mine Québec Lithium, which produced over 907,000 tons of material at 1.40% Li2O between 1955 and 1965 (Boily et al, 1989).
