The Vallée Lithium property is located in the Province of Quebec, in Abitibi, in the townships of La Corne and Fiedmont on the NTS map 32C05. The project is in the heart of the southern portion of the Abitibi Greenstone Belt in Quebec, some 100 kilometres northeast of the mining towns of Rouyn-Noranda, 45 kilometres north of Val-d’Or, 50 kilometres northeast of Malartic (home to the Canadian-Malartic Mine), 30 kilometres southeast of Amos and contiguous and in proximity to RB Energy’s Quebec Lithium Property and adjacent to North American Lithium Mine. The mineralized Spodumene Pegmatite dykes that North American Lithium are mining continue directly onto the claims of Jourdan.
The property encompasses the southern part of Mont Vidéo and frames the north and east of Lac Legendre. It consists of a set of 48 cells designated on map that cover surveyed intra-municipal lots covering 1997 hectares.
The Vallée Lithium claim block is geologically located on the northeast edge of the Preissac‐Lacorne batholite. It is located east of the edge of the late pluto of La Corne. The intrusive rocks of the dioritic to early granodioritic suite largely make up its geology targeted by drilling. However, the upper part of the block, contains volcanic rocks of felsic to mafic composition of the Aurora Group.
The objective of the 2011 and 2021 drilling campaign was to study the immediate region of the Vallée Lithium index by carrying out 4 stratigraphic sections bringing together a series of boreholes on a north-south alignment, thus intersecting the extension of the pegmatitic observed west of the property (North American Lithium project) and assessing the mineralisation potential related to pegmatites, namely lithium, molybdenum, as well as a series of rare metals (Rubidium (Rb), Gallium (Ga) and Tantalum (Ta)). Of the 29 boreholes carried out, more than 487 pegmatitic and/or aplitic spodumene were intercepted with thicknesses ranging from 1 centimeters to 17 meters (length in drill core), which revealed proportions varying in trace to 15%.
