West Vancouver, February 12, 2024 - K9 Gold Corp. (TSXV: KNC) (FSE: 5GP) (OTCQB: WDFCF) ("K9" or the "Company") is pleased to report results from its 2023 soil sampling and prospecting on its JB Lithium projects in the James Bay region of Quebec.
- Of the 3524 soil samples collected, 386 exceeded 25 ppm Li, and 10 exceeded 40 ppm Li.
- Of the 80 rock samples collected, six samples exceeded 50 ppm Li, with two exceeding 100 ppm (112 and 247 ppm Li respectively).
- These high values correlate well with pegmatite outcrops and their interpreted extensions.
2023 Exploration Program:
Full results have now been received for the summer field soil sampling and prospecting program. The program was performed by GroundTruth Exploration of Dawson City, YK, and comprised 3524 soil samples and 80 rock samples. Highlights include:
- Prospecting has identified at least three pegmatite outcrops with spodumene, tourmaline and garnet present. These outcrops occur along well-defined ridges which are in excess of 500 meters in length.
- The pegmatite outcrops occur on both the Rivière Salomon and the Lac Joubert-Tilly properties.
- On the Rivière Salomon property, the pegmatites are spatially related to an occurrence of Senneterre dykes.
- On the Lac Joubert-Tilly property, the pegmatites are related to occurrences of Tilly pegmatites.
All samples were submitted to SGS in Val d'Or, QC for preparation, and were subsequently analyzed by SGS in Burnaby, BC, using their GE_ICP90A50 (Na2O2 fusion, HNO3, ICPAES) and GE_IIM90A50 (Na2O2 fusion, HNO3, ICP-MS) methods.
Jeff Poloni, CEO of K9 Gold commented, "We were fortunate to complete the first phase of work on the JBL project with the fire situation in Quebec last summer. We were glad to see the anomalous values extending the interpreted extension of the pegmatite outcrops."
