Lac LeCaron lithium project within James Bay prolific lithium region of central Quebec, Canada totals some 57 claims for 3000 hectares (30 sq.kilometers) north of LeCaron Lake, about 15 km north-northeast of Eastmain-1 powerhouse and facilities. It is located within LaGrande geological subprovince, 15km from Opinaca subprovince boundary.
Pegmatite pockets and dykes within pegmatitic pluton
Wholly-owned Lac LeCaron lithium claims cover a 12km-long prospective eastwest section hosting a pegmatitic pluton (granite/granodiorite) with pegmatite pockets and dykes (5-30%) at the margins of a northeast meta-sedimentary & volcanic rock band.
Lithium metal anomalous signature occurs in two different secondary environments
LeCaron lithium claims occur along a cluster of lithium metal lake sediment anomalies (Li values between 8 and 10.5 ppm in this secondary environment) combined with anomalous proprietary Dios’ sampled glacial tills of 27.4, 27.9 & 29.5 ppm Li in heavy mineral fraction. Other anomalous critical elements (such as cesium over 2ppm, up to 5ppm) were observed in lake sediments.
Magnetic features targeted
The claims are also located in the vicinities of several magnetic eastwest & west-northwest features cutting through the general NE-SW magnetic trend.
Geochemical signature is comparable to Pivert-Rose deposit and Pontax-Lithium prospect. Pontax-Lithium (lithium-tantalum-bearing pegmatite dikes) was discovered and drilled in the scope of former joint Dios/Sirios Resources exploration project under supervision of Dios’ VP Harold Desbiens M.Sc.
