As mentioned in a press release dated October 15, 2021, the Company has completed its previously announced diamond drilling program, with 1,682 meters of drilling completed in October 2021. The Company has now received the first assay results from the program and awaits further assays from the program in which every hole showed multiple intersections of spodumene-bearing pegmatite. These results are expected in mid to late November 2021.

Jourdan’s Chief Executive Officer, Rene Bharti, commented, “Jourdan continues to prove up the true value of our lithium property with our drill program. With lithium prices at an all-time high, having such positive results from our first drill hole is an obvious next step towards our ambition of establishing a mineral resource and becoming Quebec’s next lithium producer. With so much activity around our large land package, we believe that our properties are located in one of the most prolific regions for future lithium production in Canada.”

“We are excited to report these grades from our first drillhole”, said Dr. Andy Rompel, Executive Chairman of Jourdan, “and we are keenly awaiting the next results for the remaining seven holes. We feel extremely encouraged to continue drilling on our Vallee property to build on what is already known.”
