Map of Arbor Metal Corp.’s Jarnet Lithium Claims
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 11, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arbor Metals Corp. (“Arbor” or the “Company”) (TSXV: ABR, FWB: 432 is pleased to announce the deployment of its exploration team to the Company’s Jarnet lithium project in the James Bay region of Quebec, Canada. The exploration program spans several days and will encompass mapping, prospecting activities and drilling of potential targets. The team will be stationed at a lodge in Northern Quebec, strategically situated near the project claims, to ensure efficient access to the site via helicopter. A qualified Quebec geologist will oversee the program, conducting a final verification and preparing an assessment report.
Incorporating the latest technological advancements, the Company has integrated a laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) laser spectrometer into the exploration program. This cutting-edge technology will play a pivotal role in expediting the assessment of whether lithium-bearing minerals exist within the pegmatite dikes on the Company’s Jarnet lithium project.
The LIBS laser spectrometer is specifically designed to identify and assess lithium-containing minerals, focusing on minerals like spodumene. This advanced instrument utilizes a pulsed laser to transform a sample into a plasma state, followed by optical analysis across various wavelengths, including visible light, ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR) spectrums. Renowned for its accuracy and reliability, the LIBS analytical approach has delivered consistent success for lithium exploration efforts in various lithium-rich regions worldwide, including the Corvette Lake camp.
Mark Ferguson, President and CEO of Arbor, expressed his excitement as the Company’s 2023 exploration program kicks off. He commended his team for their proactive approach in revising the exploration plan to ensure the successful completion of the program despite the delays caused by the wildfires that swept through Quebec over the summer. Ferguson also conveyed his gratitude to the firefighters and other dedicated individuals who worked tirelessly to combat the wildfires.
The Company’s annual general and special meeting on August 11, 2023, approved all presented matters. Following the meeting, Richard Ko assumed the position of Chief Financial Officer and Corporate Secretary of the Company.
Arbor remains dedicated to its exploration endeavours and will provide updates as the program progresses.
