Up to 5.58% Li2O in Drill Target Zone at Cancet Project

MetalsTech Limited (ASX:MTC) is pleased to announce it has achieved exceptional results in a channel sampling program in drill target zones at the Company’s 100% owned Cancet Lithium Project in Quebec, Canada.


  • 5-day trench / channel sampling program in drill target zone
  • Outcropping spodumene-bearing pegmatite open across width and along strike
  • CH16-01 was 12.8m in length including intervals of 1.71%, 2.35%, 3.08% and 4.95% Li2O
  • CH16-02 was 10.6m in length including intervals of 1.19%, 2.11% and 2.50% Li2O
  • CH16-03 was 4.1m in length including intervals of 1.22%, 2.54%, 3.55% and 5.58% Li2O
  • Elevated Ta2O5 across the majority of the identified mineralisation
  • Average Li2O across all channels measured higher than the major lithium deposits in Quebec
  • 4,000m diamond core drill program planned targeting resource definition

Commenting on the results, Executive Director Mr Gino DÁnna stated:

“We have identified a very high grade lithium mineralisation in pegmatite at Cancet which is accessible immediately from surface. The mineralised zones are open across width and along strike, which leads us to believe the ore body may have significant resource potential. It is immediately adjacent to a major highway and high voltage power lines in a jurisdiction that has recently permitted several lithium mines. If the upcoming drill program meets our expectations, Cancet will be fast-tracked for development and MetalsTech will prioritise the delivery of maiden resource and scoping study in the near term.”
