VANCOUVER — FE Battery Metals Corp entered into an agreement with Rose West Lithium Property in the burgeoning James Bay lithium region of northern Quebec.
The newly acquired land package consists of 32 mining claims within a premier lithium jurisdiction that currently hosts several advanced lithium projects. The property sits within the Eeyou Istchee territory and is accessible by the James Bay Road that connects Matagami and Radisson as well as accessible by road via the Route du Nord, usable all year round from Chibougamau, QC.
The Rose West project covers approximately 1,695 hectares which sit directly adjacent to the claims of Critical Elements Lithium Corporation which hosts their Rose Lithium deposit. The Rose Lithium mineralization is hosted by pegmatite rock and currently has Probable Reserves of 26.8 million tonnes at 0.96 per cent lithium oxide equivalent and a 17-year mine plan in place from their Feasibility Study of June 2022.
The Rose West property is underlain by similar geological rock units that occur at the Rose Lithium deposit and are comprised of the Archean Lower- Eastmain Group, consisting of volcano-sedimentary formational units and ultramafic to felsic intrusives. Gabbros, pyroxenites, and diorites cut across the property and Pegmatites occur as irregular but generally continuous lenses within biotite schists.
“We are very excited to expand our large portfolio of quality Lithium projects within select districts of Quebec,” said Gurminder Sangha, CEO and director. “Our next steps will include to plan a Phase 1 exploration program for Rose West which will include soil and rock geochemistry, geological mapping, trenching, and prospecting to evaluate the potential of lithium bearing pegmatites and other types of mineralization.”
Cautionary note: investors are cautioned that the information on Critical Elements Lithium Corporation’s Rose Property is taken from the publicly available sources and the company has not been able to independently verify the information contained. The information is not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on the Rose West Project.
