MONTREAL, Feb. 02, 2023 - DIOS Exploration Inc. wholly-owned AU33 property, south of Dios' Lithium33, covers a further 143 high potential lithium claims for 76.5 sq.km adjacent to Critical Elements Corp. property hosting advanced Pivert-Rose lithium and tantalum deposit.
Within Lower Eastmain Greenstone-belt, Dios' AU33 claims cover favourable sections of folded Anatacau volcanics at the margins of large Mitsumis differentiated felsic pluton, which includes:
- dominant magnetic tonalite suite with irregular pegmatitic granodiorite pockets/lenses;
- granodiorite suite with frequent sub-horizontal injections.
On adjacent Pivert-Rose property to the south, several east-west spodumene-lepidolite-tantalite-beryl (Pivert-Rose-JR) bearing pegmatite dykes, 10-20m wide, injected the Mitsumis pluton near the western margin of a granite. The Rose deposit has resources estimate at 26.3Mt @ 0.87% Li2O & 138 ppm Ta2O5 (InnovExplo, 2022).
Within Dios' AU33/Lithium33 projects, in James Bay prolific lithium region of central Quebec, four (4) main lithium target-areas were defined from Dios' geoscientific data:
- Lithium Lake sediments anomalies clustered along Eastmain River west of EM-1;
- Lithium Lake sediments anomalies clustered in the LeCaron pluton north of EM-1;
- Regional fold-nose of Anatacau volcanics located west-southwest of EM-1;
- Southern flank of the volcanics enclosed within the Mitsumis.
Most targets are located up-ice of larger regional Lithium-Rubidium-Cesium (lake sediments & glacial tills) dispersal train.
Field work is planned on Au33-Lithium33 in the vicinities of EM-1 hydropower facilities. H. Desbiens M.Sc. P. Geo, Dios' V.P., 43-101 Qualified Person, reviewed this release.
