Company increases exploration efforts following encouraging samples
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, October 24, 2023 – Discovery Lithium Inc. (CSE: DCLI) (OTC: DCLIF) (FRA: Q3Q0) (the “Company,” or “Discovery Lithium”), a Canadian exploration company focused on advancing domestic energy freedom through regional lithium discovery is pleased to announce that as a result of encouraging preliminary results of its initial late summer sampling and mapping campaign in the northern Quebec region of Nunavik, the Company has elected to undertake an immediate 3-day-follow-up program on key Vaubert Lake claim targets of interest.
During phase one of its growing multi-phase strategic exploration plan, the Discovery field team identified anomalous data occurrences considered highly prospective for lithium. This data is based on extensive cross-referenced mapping, a series of visual inspections of rock and soil sampling, along with field results from handheld LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) analysis.
Based on these encouraging preliminary results, the Company has initiated an immediate second phase exploratory sampling campaign to further study the target locations and surroundings in greater detail prior to the onset of winter conditions. Per the initial sampling, all new samples from the follow-up program will also be sent to SGS Laboratories for analysis. The sample results, including the mapping and related data will be used by the Company to determine the most prospective drill targets on the Vaubert Lake Project.
“Thanks to the work accomplished by our experienced exploration field team, we were able to mobilize a rapid reaction follow-up program as soon as we understood that the preliminary results are pointing us towards some highly intriguing mineralogy,” stated Michael Gheyle, Discovery Lithium’s President, and CEO. “The team’s efforts have allowed us to efficiently cover the entire Vaubert and Serindac Lake Projects in our quest for the next large lithium discovery in Quebec. To initiate successive exploration efforts less than 6 months post acquisition, demonstrates our commitment and ability to position Discovery Lithium as a leading resource exploration operation in Quebec.”
Vaubert Lake, Nunavik, Nord-du-Québec Region
Highly recognized, award-winning prospector and project proponent Shawn Ryan has led the way in identifying the mining-friendly Nunavik region through his extensive soil studies and he has advised the Company regarding the use of best practice fieldwork programs. Discovery Lithium’s massive claim holdings are located directly upon some of the highest lake bottom sediment anomalies in the entire province. This data represents 99th percentile lithium and cesium as identified in the official Quebec government ministry database.

Over the summer, Discovery Lithium engaged Ground Truth Exploration to deploy experienced research teams onto the Nunavik properties for an extensive mapping and sampling campaign.
Previously determined to be an excellent location for rare-element pegmatites including favourable lithological rock-types and structural interpretation of regional magnetics which are coincident with very high lithium, cesium, and rubidium lake sediment samples. All samples collected over the summer have been shipped to SGS Laboratories with assay results anticipated by the end of November. Based on these results the Company will develop drill targeting and logistics for follow-up campaigns aimed at developing the properties for future valuation purposes.
