Patriot Lithium kicks off exploration activities across seven Ontario lithium projects
Patriot has assembled a highly prospective portfolio of lithium projects in one of the most exciting global hard rock lithium districts with a field program officially underway over the 1,164km2 recently acquired claims in Ontario.
The company’s management team has appointed Equity Exploration Consultants to carry out the reconnaissance exploration program with the objective to identify lithium targets using modern prospecting and surface geochemistry technicques.
Equity Exploration are experts in exploration program design and management, particularly in remote locations, and have been operating in North America for over 30 years.
Patriot (ASX:PAT) says the program has officially kicked off and is expected to take about three weeks to complete before phase 2 commences with follow up work and more detailed mapping and sampling.
It is anticipated that the mapping and sampling in Phase II will take an additional three weeks for the field team to complete.
The company recognises the advantages of outsourcing early-stage exploration activities to local expert consultants as they bring greater familiarity with increasingly complex regulatory environments, and has appointed Phil Smerchanski of Accretive Metals Advisory, to manage the program.
Smerchanski is a local Canadian expert in regional and near-mine exploration for metallic ore systems.
PMT managing director Nick Vickery says the seven projects to be explored all have geological characteristics that the company’s exploration team is eager to field check and test.
“The Canadian team is ideally placed to run this field program while Patriot’s US based geologists simultaneously run exploration programs on Patriot’s projects in the Pegmatite Belt of Arizona and the Black Hills of South Dakota and Wyoming.”
