Comet launches intensive field program on flagship Liberty property


Classified in: Mining industry, oil industry


  • Start of field work on June 4th on the Liberty Lithium Property with Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd.
  • Comet will conduct an intensive and focused exploration program with a total of 32 planned crossings, 20 of which are high priority targets.
  • A 14-day program with 3 experienced teams, with Comets VP Exploration, Vincent Cardin-Tremblay also involved in the exploration efforts.

ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, May 29, 2024 /CNW/ – Comet Lithium Corporation (TSXV: CLIC) (FSE: 8QY) (“Comet Lithium” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2024 Phase 1 exploration program on its 100% owned flagship Liberty property (the “Liberty Property”) at June 4, 2024The Company has engaged Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. to strengthen its team for the surface exploration program.

Three experienced field teams have been assigned to investigate and cross twenty high priority target areas (shown in red in Figures 1 and 2 below) in the most prospective part of the Liberty property in the south. Specifically, three crosses will be made in the first days of the program through all Priority 1 targets to maximize the opportunity for discoveries. Additionally, seven Priority 2 areas (shown in yellow in Figures 1 and 2 below) have been identified in the northern part and five Priority 3 areas (shown in blue in Figures 1 and 2 below) are located in the most prospective zone in the south with an east-west orientation.

The Company's priority prospecting targets were identified using LIDAR. The high priority targets in red represent areas where bedrock is most likely exposed or protruding beneath. The Priority 2 targets in yellow are areas of topographic anomalies that may indicate potential outcrops. There are several interesting topographic anomalies in the central part of the southwestern portion of the Liberty property that show relatively good correlation with magnetic and gravity anomalies.

During the extensive field program, teams will also conduct a fractionation survey in the areas traversed to map potential target zones. A typical approach to identifying lithium-enriched pegmatites is to collect samples of non-lithium minerals such as K-feldspar and muscovite, which serve as reference points for assessing chemical evolution and rare element enrichment in pegmatites.

“We are very excited to commence the Phase 1 exploration program in 2024 on our flagship Liberty property,” commented Vincent MetcalfeChairman and CEO of Comet Lithium. “Thanks to the expertise of our dedicated field teams, we are confident in our strategy to thoroughly investigate and cross-mine high priority target areas. This field program is designed to maximize our chances of discovering lithium mineralization, particularly in the most prospective areas identified by LIDAR and gravity survey results. We look forward to the completion of this field program, the resulting results and ultimately the potential value of the Liberty property.”
