Located in the mining area of Abitibi, Quebec, around 40km from the city of Val-d’Or, the Lac La Motte ‎project has 13 contiguous claims covering approximately 586.05ha.

Surface sampling work concluded in June 2022 showed historical lithium occurrences. Holes were drilled to find targets for current exploratory drilling.

Samples at the site returned values of lithium oxide (Li2O) in the range of less than 0.02% Li2O to 2.58% Li2O.

We remain committed to our highly prospective assets in the Nunavik region of Quebec; however, this new acquisition balances out the company’s project portfolio with a lithium project that can be drilled during the winter months, has good access and infrastructure, and is road accessible, is drill ready and drill permitted, and is situated in a mining-friendly and active lithium district.

“Prior work at Lac La Motte includes significant pegmatite showings and reported spodumene, as well as encouraging prior drill intercepts including Drill Hole MD22-08, which Intersected two pegmatites: Upper 1.33 m wide with 1.49% Li2O at 36m depth; and lower 0.93m wide at 0.88% Li2O at 41.2m depth.

“Upon satisfaction of the due diligence period and completion of the definitive agreement, Eureka’s will be positioned with data, field crews and access to a drill to immediately commence work.”
