Musk Metals Commences Drilling on its 100% Owned “Elon” Lithium Project In Quebec, Canada and Announces Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / November 2, 2022 / Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:MUSK)(OTC:EMSKF)(FSE:1I30) is pleased to announce it started drilling on its 100% owned "Elon" lithium project in Quebec. A first intervention permit was received on May 18th, 2022 and a modification of the permit to allow drilling two additional holes in the southeast was received on August 22nd, 2022.

Following the summer trail opening campaign, six drill holes pads have already been prepared to the north and west parts of the Property. The two new holes to the southeast are currently being prepared.

The Program

The Company has started to drill the first of its eight planned holes. The approximate length of each hole is 150m each, for a total 1200 meters. The holes target magnetic low, possible sources of soil anomalies or interpreted contact between units (Table 1). Unexplored targets in the present program will be subject to future exploration work, such as shallow drilling or further trenching.

Table 1: Drill Holes Details.

DDH Name Easting Northing Azimut Dip Length Target






Hole 1 is located on the T4 Trench, it aims at the NNW-SSE low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion






Hole 2is located on the T10 Trench, it aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm






Hole 3 aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm






Hole 4 aims at the same low magnetic corridor than Hole 3, emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm






Hole 5 aims at the E-W low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion






Hole 6 aims at the E-W low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion






Hole 7 is located in the intrusion. It aims at the possible source of a soil anomaly in the area






Hole 8 is located on the trail to the T10 Trench, it aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm

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 drill pads (Figure 1).

The Property and Adjacent Properties

The Elon Property is strategically located in Abitibi, Qc at approximately 600 meters northeast of North American Lithium Project (recently acquired by Sayona Québec) and formerly known as Mine Québec Lithium. North American Lithium produced over 907,000 tons of material at 1.40% Li2O between 1955 and 1965 (Boily et al, 1989). In a June 28th, 2022 news release, Sayona Québec formally approved the restart of North American Lithium operation for lithium extraction and spodumene concentrate production. In September 2022 Sayona announced a 200 million dollars contract for the mining operations (September 27th, 2022 press release).

Jourdan Resources is investigating a pegmatite field approximately 1000m SE of the Elon Property, has reported lithium content of up to 2.38% Li2O over 0.90m and 1.33% Li2O over 5.25m in pegmatites (June 9th, 2022 and July 7th, 2022 news release) and plans to conduct a second drilling campaign (September 15th, 2022 press release)

This might indicate that the general area is fertile in lithium and that the regional environment is more favorable for additional lithium discovery in the future.

Private Placement

The Company is also pleased to announce non-brokered private placement for gross proceeds of up to $350,000 at a price of $0.032 per Unit.

Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company (each, a "Share") and one Share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"), with each Warrant entitling the holder to purchase one additional Share (each, a "Warrant Share") at a price of $0.05 per Warrant Share for a period of five years following the closing of the private placement.

The aggregate gross proceeds from the sale of the private placement will be used for general working capital. In connection with the private placement, the Company may pay finder's fees in cash or securities or a combination of both, as permitted by the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange.

None of the securities sold in connection with the private placement will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and no such securities may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
