Patriot (PMET) has drilled up to 15 m of 5.10 per cent Li₂O from its Corvette Property in Quebec.

The result stems from the final 10 drill holes from the 2022 drill campaign on the property’s CV5 Pegmatite (previous yields up to 156.9 m at 2.12 per cent Li₂O), further substantiating mineral expansion to the east.

The spodumene mineralization at CV5 has been traced over a strike length of at least 2,200 m through 2021 and 2022 drilling. The mineralization remains open along strike at both ends and to depth along most of the pegmatite’s length.

All 2022 drill core assays for CV5 have now been reported, with core assay results for 14 drill holes at the CV13 Pegmatite cluster to be reported.

The eastward extension of CV5 is currently being tested with the first drill holes as part of the 2023 winter drill program.

“We have exceeded all of our program objectives, expanding the known mineralized system from a few hundred metres along strike in 2021 to at least 2.2 km in 2022, remaining open and demonstrating high grades at both ends,” stated Blair Way, Patriot’s President and CEO.

“We have just recently commenced our 2023 drill campaign and will continue to aggressively delineate what we believe will be a top-tier lithium asset globally when fully defined.”
