Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)Alix Resources Corp (TSXV:AIX) is pleased to report the results from its due diligence program on three properties of the Company’s large Preissac-La Corne portfolio in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt of Quebec. As previously reported (PR of July 6, 2016) a total of 12 granitic pegmatite samples were collected from the properties and submitted to ALS Chemex for assaying. Lithium oxide (Li2O) varied from 0.01% to 2.86 wt. %. Alix Resources claims are located near the past producing Quebec Lithium Mine which was recently purchased by the Chinese-based Jilin Jien Nickel Industry Co. (“Jilin”).
International Lithium Property – Mineralization consists of spodumene-rich sub-horizontal, irregular dikes located in Figuery township (NTS 32D08). Surface samples were collected and returned an average of 2.41 % Li2O with above-limit tantalum concentrations (>100 ppm) as well. Historic drilling carried out by International Lithium Corp. in the 1950s, delineated a 3.7-metre-thick, 119 by 104 m area providing a historical resource estimate of 135,000 t at 0.95 wt. % lithium oxide (Li2O) (source: RP 446; MERQ).*
Duval Lithium Property – Situated in the La Motte township (NTS 32D8), the Duval property mineralization is contained within two granitic pegmatite dikes (182 to 259 m long by two to three m- thick), rich in spodumene (Li) with accessory tantalite (Ta) and Beryl (Be). Collected surface samples averaged 0.43 wt. % Li2O with values ranging from 0.02 wt. % to 0.82 wt. % Li2O. The Duval property area has a historical resource estimates were 75,000 t at 1.45 wt. % Li2O (source: RG160; MERQ).*
La Motte Lithium Property – Geological reports on the property located in the La Corne township (NTS 32D08), indicate granitic pegmatites dikes, 0.60 to 1.20 m thick, containing 15 to 30 % spodumene accompanied by beryl. Historical diamond drilling generated key assays of 1.65 wt.% Li2O /1m, and 1.12 wt. % Li2O/1.32 m, respectively (source: GM 03089; MERQ). Selected surface samples show values ranging from 0.65 wt. % to 1.58 wt. % Li2O with an average of 1.22 wt. % Li2O.
Mike England, President and CEO of Alix Resources, commented, “We are pleased to receive confirmation of the strong lithium values from the three properties sampled. The Company is looking forward to complete more extensive exploration activities on this large claim group in the Preissac-Lacorne area of Quebec, one of the world’s most productive terranes for Li ± Ta ± Be mineralization”.
