Lithium

JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSXV: JOR; OTCQB: JORF, FRA:2JR1)(“Jourdan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that all of its eighteen (18) drill holes of its 2022 winter drilling campaign have intersected the new spodumene-bearing pegmatite swarm on its Vallée property at a previously underexplored eastern extension, which had not been exposed by the North American Lithium mine to the west of Vallée (see Fig. 1).

Jourdan is pleased to advise that phase 2 of the 2022 drilling has been completed. 18 holes were drilled with a total of 3,629 metres of core. This core is now scheduled to be logged, cut, sampled, and then sent to the assay laboratory for the establishment of lithium contents. The results of the drilling and assaying are expected to be utilized in the already initiated initial resource estimation process.

Since restarting drilling in September 2021, Jourdan has drilled twenty-six drillholes; all 26 have intercepted multiple spodumene-bearing pegmatite dykes.

Jourdan’s Executive Chairman, Dr. Andreas Rompel, stated, “We have successfully completed another phase in our endeavour to enlarge the known deposit size on our Vallée project. We are now keenly awaiting the assay results so that we can start the initial resource estimation process. Of the 47 holes drilled since 2011, we have selected the results from 37 to be used in estimating our first initial resource. We are satisfied that this will be sufficient for an inferred resource. Nevertheless, since more funds are available, we may continue to drill later in 2022 to further expand the known deposit size, taking recommendations of our resource estimator to upgrade the anticipated initial resource into account.”

The now completed drill program was conducted by Forage Hébert from Amos, Quebec, under the supervision of Alex Belo, Géologue Inc. (ABG Exploration) of Laval, Quebec.

Figure 1: The Vallée property is immediately east of the North American Lithium mine. This figure depicts the 2011, 2021 and 2022 completed drillholes. All 26 drillholes since 2021 have intersected the li-bearing, spodumen-rich pegmatite swarm.

Rene Bharti, CEO of Jourdan, stated, “We are very excited that the now complete drill program continued to find new spodumene-bearing intersections in new zones. The success of the drill program, coupled with the work underway to build our initial resource estimate in the coming months, is anticipated to bring us one step closer to achieving our goal of becoming Quebec’s next lithium producer.”

The Company’s now completed diamond drilling program of 3,629m was intended to follow up on the results of a bulk sample collected in 2018 and the fence line drilled in 2011 and 2021 along the western side of the Company’s Vallée property, which borders the North American Lithium mine. As anticipated, the drilling program substantially extended the known deposit at the Company’s Vallée property eastwards. Since February 2022, 18 holes of approximately 200m depth have been drilled, each aimed at the pegmatite swarm identified by the trenching of the bulk sample collected on the Vallée property in 2018. The assay results from the bulk sample revealed high Li2O grades (for more information, please see the Company’s press release dated April 29, 2021, which is available under the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com), which have encouraged the Company to continue exploration and exploratory drilling along the strike and depth extents of its Vallée property.

Jourdan has significantly enlarged its database by adding more drillholes since the start of the exploration work in 2011. The 2011 drilling comprised 21 drillholes (4,256m), the 2021 campaign consisted of eight drillholes (1,680m) and with the completed 3,629m in 2022, Jourdan has more than 9,490m (47 holes) of core that the Company intends to use in the future to establish an initial mineral resource estimate.

Overview

For electric vehicle battery and power production, market researchers predict global lithium demand to more than double, from 47,300 tonnes in 2020 to 117,400 tonnes in 2024. As the West searches for more mineralization to supply the growing demand, companies mining for minerals like lithium and copper can expect to play an integral part in minimizing environmental impact, transportation costs and carving a place in the future of green energy.

Echoing this growing demand, Canada revealed its critical minerals list in March 2021, which included lithium among the 31 minerals deemed vital to the Canadian economy. The critical status of lithium coupled with growing demand strategically positions Jourdan Resources (TSXV:JOR) as a company moving towards focus areas in future Canadian mining policy and investments.

Sigma Lithium: EV Trend "Inevitable," Speed Has Brought Lithium Demand Forwardyoutu.be

Rising lithium prices have attracted investor attention, and while the market has cooled somewhat in recent months, experts agree that the crucial battery metal's story still has a long way to go.

Speaking at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, Ana Cabral-Gardner, co-chairperson and co-CEO at Sigma Lithium (TSXV:SGML,NASDAQ:SGML), explained that higher electric vehicle (EV) demand from the western world surprised the market in 2020 and led to a major run in prices.

"That took the whole industry by surprise, and then as per the current price levels it was clear that the industry wasn't expecting it and it wasn't ready for it," she explained to the Investing News Network.
