Berkwood Resources adds lithium to Quebec energy metals portfolio

by Greg Klein | July 11, 2017

Seeing lithium potential in the gold-laden Abitibi, Berkwood Resources TSXV:BKR announced a 3,064-hectare acquisition called the Delbreuil project on July 11. Located in a region known for lithium showings, the property features spodumene-hosting pegmatites and historic lithium assays.

One historic, non-43-101 result from a pegmatite sample graded 1,290 ppm lithium and 126 ppm tantalum. Historic drilling also brought results for zinc, nickel, copper, silver and cobalt. Satellite imagery suggests multiple outcrops have high potential for hosting additional pegmatite intrusions, the company added.

Now being planned is Delbreuil’s first lithium-specific program, with Phase I field work to include prospecting, mapping and till sampling.

Subject to approvals, Berkwood gets the road-accessible project for 2.1 million shares and $15,000.

The property would complement Berkwood’s portfolio of energy metals projects in Quebec. Last month the company announced an agreement to acquire the Cobalt Ford property in the infrastructure-rich Côte-Nord region. Previous work on the 2,176-hectare property revealed three base metals showings as well as historic, non-43-101 samples of 904 ppm and 1,480 ppm cobalt.

Last year’s work on the company’s Lac Gueret South graphite project, meanwhile, produced grab samples from Zone 1 averaging 4.99% carbon-as-graphite within a range of 0.04% to 36.3% Cgr in the vicinity of large geophysical anomalies. The property’s located about three hours by road from the city of Baie-Comeau.
