Route du Nord Project

James Bay Lithium District:
5,972 hectares (~14,757 acres)

James Bay Lithium District: in the heart of major exploration and discovery

The James Bay Lithium District hosts hundreds of exploration projects, five of which, Corvette, Rose, James Bay, Whabouchi, and Moblan, are advanced.

Lithium in the region is found as spodumene pegmatites, many of which are large and near surface, making for relatively easy mining.

Crucially, the Quebec government and most local communities are strongly supportive of Li mining.

Located 575 km north of Val d’Or in the prolific lithium district in the James Bay region of central Quebec

The Route Du Nord project encompasses approximately 60 square kilometers 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.

Roughly 35 km to the east is the world-renowned Whabouchi deposit.

This deposit occurs within a regional thrust fault that extends and terminates in the Valiquette pluton.

The fault 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 continuation of the thrust fault into the Valiquette Pluton, making it highly prospective for LCT pegmatites.
