Patriot makes new Corvette discovery

Dual-listed Patriot Battery Metals on Monday announced a new spodumene pegmatite discovery along geological trend of the CV9 and CV10 clusters at the Corvette property, in Quebec.

The new occurrence, known as CV14, delivered grab sample assays of 0.94% lithium oxide (Li2O) and 0.86% Li2O. The outcrop is 33 m by 9 m in size.

“The discovery highlights the extensive nature of the spodumene mineralised system along the CV lithium trend, which extends across the property where a large portion remains unexplored for lithium pegmatite. We are excited to follow up this area with systematic surface exploration as this local prospective lithium pegmatite trend has now been extended to approximately 3.6 km,” said VP of exploration Darren Smith.

Further, the 2023 surface exploration programme also discovered a mineralised pegmatite boulder (0.53% Li20) about 450 m up-ice to the north-east of CV14.

Based on interpreted glacial ice direction in the area, it may suggest the potential for a yet-to-be-discovered lithium pegmatite to be present to the north-northeast of the primary CV9-CV10-CV14 trend.

A total of 474 surface rock grab/chip samples were collected over the course of the 2023 prospecting programme. In addition to the discovery of the CV14 spodumene pegmatite occurrence (outcrop), a plethora of spodumene mineralised pegmatite boulders were discovered south of the CV5 spodumene pegmatite with 29 boulders, dominantly subangular and 1 m to 3 m in size, assaying between 0.49% Li2O to 3.22% Li2O.

Interpretation of glacial ice movement over the property indicates that, although many of these boulders are sourced from the principal CV5 pegmatite body, a significant number indicate spodumene pegmatites are present near-surface immediately south of CV5, and along strike eastwardly of the principal CV5 pegmatite body towards CV4, where it remains open.

Other mineralised boulders on the property also suggest undiscovered spodumene pegmatite to the north of the primary CV lithium trend.
