Late season 10-day program targets 2024 campaign
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, November 7, 2023 – Discovery Lithium Inc. (CSE: DCLI) (OTC: DCLIF) (FRA: Q3Q0) (WKN: A3EFKA) (the “Company,” or “Discovery Lithium”), a Canadian exploration company focused on advancing domestic energy freedom through regional lithium discovery, is pleased to announce it has commenced a field exploration program at its Route Du Nord project in the prolific lithium district of the James Bay region of Quebec.
The Route Du Nord project appears to be situated within a prospective structural corridor for lithium, which is on trend with the well documented regional discovery known as the Whabouchi Deposit. The structural corridor contains high levels of lithium in both till and lake sediment samples with respect to the surrounding areas. Elements such as beryllium, cesium, rubidium, and tungsten are also found elevated within the Valiquette Pluton making it a fertile source for the fractionation of LCT pegmatites. The Valiquette Pluton lies within Discovery’s James Bay claim area.
“The Whabouchi Deposit1 occurs within a regional thrust fault that extends and terminates in the Valiquette Pluton,” notes Dr. Jacob (Jaap) Verbaas P. Geo, and Company director. “The fault potentially acted as a pathway for LCT pegmatite melt at the Whabouchi project and may host other LCT pegmatites along strike. The Route Du Nord project captures the inferred continuation of the thrust fault into the Valiquette Pluton, making it highly prospective for LCT pegmatites.”

The Route Du Nord project is an exploration stage project, and a resource or deposit may never be defined.
The Route Du Nord lithium pegmatite project (see Figure 1) encompasses approximately 60 square kilometers (14, 826 acres) stretching 36 km east to west and is parallel to and within 5 km of the 407 km long wilderness road known as the “Route Du Nord.” The project has excellent infrastructure access with the Nemiscau hydroelectric installation located 5 km to the south. It offers road access to the nearby village of Nemaska with additional infrastructure support from the city of Val d’Or located 575 km to the south.
“An exploration crew provided by GroundTruth Exploration is currently sampling and prospecting for lithium and will be on-site for approximately ten days,” advises Michael Gheyle, President, and CEO of Discovery Lithium. “This comprehensive first pass of exploration on a project never previously explored for lithium will serve to identify prospective areas and targets for potential follow-up exploration. We look forward to furthering our understanding of this exciting project with our goal of undertaking a comprehensive exploration in 2024 aimed at realizing the potential added value to our growing portfolio of Quebec based lithium-focused assets.”
