The drilling program will take place on the Vallee lithium property in Quebec.

Reportedly, the concentrator is still on track to produce its first sellable lithium concentrate by the end of this month. Both companies aim to produce all the project’s lithium through the concentrator plant in the future.

Under previous agreements signed by the companies in November, Over 24,000 metres of drilling were approved for the earn-in claims. JOR stated this drilling will be partly funded by the $4 million previously deposited in escrow under the joint venture agreement.
