LeCaron Lithium North

Le Caron lithium

Le Caron lithium project within James Bay prolific lithium region of central Quebec, Canada totals some 103 claims for 5 414 hectares (54,14 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 Le Caron 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  

Le Caron lithium North 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. P.Geo & 43-101 QP.

Lithium North

Lithium North is well located at the head of significant (30km-long) cluster of lake sediment anomalies (Li over 8ppm, up to very high 100.6ppm; Rb over 10ppm, up to 72ppm; Cs over 2ppm, up to very high 8ppm) and lies within a greenstone belt sub-province outside the limits of former Tyrell Sea (so its sediment values are more reliable as they were not swept all over the sea).

Lithium North covers two pegmatite prospective sections: 1) NE-SW striking 13 km-long section and 2) NW-SE 6 km long one, both hosting porphyritic/pegmatitic granodiorite with pegmatite pockets and 5-50% dykes, wrapped around a magnetic biotite granite.

Magnetic NS & NE lineaments swarm crosscuts general NW magnetic trend.
