The claims cowl a complete of 49,248 hectares and had been recognized utilizing regional lake sediment samples obtained from provincial geochemical information that had been extremely anomalous with lithium pathfinder components. Targa believes that the initiatives show vital potential for lithium bearing pegmatites.
- Targa is buying a portfolio of lithium exploration initiatives in world-class mining jurisdictions totalling 49,248ha.
- Pan Canadian Lithium holds two initiatives in Saskatchewan by no means earlier than explored for lithium, together with district-scale White Metallic Mission, with native identified lithium occurrences.
- Pan Canadian Lithium additionally holds two initiatives in Ontario with year-round highway entry and native rail line, situated in similar geological belt as different identified lithium deposits.
Jon Ward, CEO and President of Targa, commented: “We’re very excited to enter into this settlement with Pan Canadian Lithium to additional develop the Firm’s Canadian portfolio of lithium initiatives. Targa will now have potential lithium initiatives in Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Ontario. Positioned in mining pleasant jurisdictions these underexplored claims have indications to be extremely potential for lithium. As we proceed to develop our exploration plans for 2023, we stay up for investigating the Pan Canadian Lithium initiatives. I’m additionally delighted to welcome Cameron Tymstra to the Targa government group because the incoming CEO. Cameron is an achieved and extremely revered mining skilled with a depth of expertise and possesses the operational, technical, monetary and administration expertise to guide the event of Targa’s extremely potential lithium property.”
Pan Canadian Lithium owns a 100% curiosity in 4 exploration initiatives with two situated in every of the provinces of Saskatchewan and Ontario.
White Metallic Mission
The White Metallic Mission, situated 40km north of Stony Rapids in northern Saskatchewan, consists of eight contiguous mineral concessions totalling 38,765ha. The claims cowl the best focus in Saskatchewan of regional lake sediment samples from the Geological Survey of Canada dataset which can be anomalous for cesium, rubidium, and tantalum, components thought of pathfinders for lithium mineralization.1 A number of famous pegmatites from the Saskatchewan Mineral Deposit Index are additionally situated on or adjoining to the White Metallic Mission with anomalous lithium concentrations as much as 271ppm.2
With historic exploration actions within the area primarily centered on uranium, White Metallic represents a district-scale alternative to probe for lithium mineralization in a mining-friendly jurisdiction.
Prince Albert Mission
The Prince Albert Mission, situated in northeast Saskatchewan, covers 2,895ha of potential geology together with a band of metasediments and metavolcanic rocks in shut proximity to a granite intrusion. Boulders with lithium contents over 3,400ppm have been discovered a number of kilometers to the southwest by different explorers, doubtlessly within the down-ice glacial route from Prince Albert.3 The Prince Albert Mission is adjoining to different lively lithium exploration initiatives held by ACME Lithium and ALX Sources.
Slim Jim and Sky Lake Initiatives
The Slim Jim and Sky Lake initiatives are situated within the Quetico Subprovince in northwestern Ontario. The Quetico Subprovince is host to a number of identified lithium pegmatite deposits and occurrences, most notably the Georgia Lake and Jackpot deposits and the Wisa Lake and Hearst/Lowther occurrences.
Each the Slim Jim and Sky Lake initiatives have good native infrastructure with year-round highway entry from the close by provincial freeway and are close to a rail line. The initiatives are roughly 115km northeast of Marathon, Ontario and 60km east of the group of Longlac.
The Slim Jim Mission covers 4,746 ha of principally metasediments alongside the boundary of a muscovite-bearing granite intrusive with famous pegmatite. Native lake sediment samples throughout the Slim Jim Mission have elevated values of lithium, cesium, rubidium, and tantalum4. Nearly all of the Slim Jim Mission space has by no means been mapped intimately and lies inside the 4km “Goldilocks Zone” for LCT-type pegmatite emplacement across the parental granite.5 A number of faults additionally run via the Slim Jim Mission and will current favorable pathways for pegmatite intrusion.
The Sky Lake Mission is situated about 16km east of Slim Jim and is 2,842ha in measurement. The Sky Lake Mission is centered on a cluster of lake sediment samples with anomalous lithium, cesium, rubidium, and tantalum and has a fault construction working north-south via the mission4. A muscovite-bearing peraluminous granite unit is uncovered simply south of the Sky Lake declare boundary and beryliferous and tourmaline/garnet-bearing pegmatites have been noticed roughly 6km north of the Sky Lake Mission.6 Sky Lake can also be coated with a community of logging roads, making for straightforward entry and low-cost future exploration work.
Pursuant to the Acquisition Settlement, the Firm will situation 5,766,666 frequent shares within the capital of the Firm (the “Consideration Shares“) to the shareholders of Pan Canadian Lithium (the “Distributors“).
