RIU Explorers Conference a success for WinsomeFebruary 24, 2022
Quebec is in the hot-seat as North America awakens to the EV revolution, explains Canada General Manager Carl CaumartinMarch 29, 2022
Winsome Resources is preparing to expand its footprint and grow its team as the Company embarks on a drilling program at its flagship project Cancet, in Quebec.
Managing Director Chris Evans is on his way to Canada for a four-week trip which will include visits to the Company’s projects, including its latest acquisition, Decelles.
Winsome recently signed an exclusive option agreement to explore and subsequently acquire 669 claims in the Decelles region of Quebec, over a 24-month period.
“By acquiring this project, Winsome significantly increases the Company’s prospective lithium landholding in Quebec and continue towards achieving our vision of supplying high grade lithium products into the North American battery supply chain,” Mr Evans said.
The visit to North America coincides with the start of Winsome’s drilling program and magnetic surveying at Cancet, in the James Bay region.
“It is very exciting to be advancing our Cancet project,” he said.
“We are delighted to have found drilling resources so soon and seeing our hard work and plans coming to fruition.”
Mr Evans said the trip to Canada would also provide him with an ideal opportunity to investigate other acquisition opportunities and meet with investors.
“I’m really looking forward to getting on the ground and spending a few weeks in the field with our new Canadian General Manager, Carl Caumartin. Visiting during winter and seeing how they conduct a drilling program in the snow will be a unique experience too.”
The drilling campaign – of around 20 holes covering 2,000m – will build upon the previous two drilling campaigns conducted at the Cancet property in 2017.
The project will include infill drilling and ‘twinning’ existing holes to increase confidence on the control of high-grade mineralisation and also to test some potential extension of the known spodumene-bearing pegmatite.
“The drilling program will also allow us to investigate nearby targets to the north, east and west that appear highly prospective for further lithium mineralisation,” Mr Evans said.
“We are also looking at growing our team, employing more geologists and field assistants and investing in more equipment.”
Winsome’s initial drilling program is expected to be completed by early April, with final assay results due about eight weeks later. Further drilling is scheduled for June 2022.
