Highlights

  • Twenty additional pegmatite and pegmatitic exposures have been identified from geological compilation on the Sacred Banana and Yoshi claims;

  • The 20 new pegmatite exposures and the geological province-scale fault are highly prospective and will be explored in the summer of 2024

Vancouver, British Columbia – TheNewswire – April 3, 2024: WhiteRock Lithium Corp., (“WhiteRock” or the “Company”) through its continuing process of planning various aspects of its 2024 exploration programme has identified, from Quebec government databases, an additional 20 pegmatite and pegmatitic exposures on its 100% owned Sacred Banana and Yoshi claims (see Figure 1). In addition to the diamond drilling which has been proposed for the Spodumene Mountain discovery, the Company will be continuing with reconnaissance geology. The reconnaissance programme will focus on the eastern extension of the Sacred Banana claims where the Vaujours fault marks the boundary between rocks of the La Grande Subprovince and those of the Ashuanipi Subprovince (Labbe, 2001)1.

The presence of the regional scale Vaujours fault represents an important regional structure related with the Spodumene Mountain. The southwest-northeast trending Vaujours fault has been identified by a topographic high as well as by its prominent low magnetic susceptibility.

A 1998/99 Quebec government geological survey identified 20 pegmatites and pegmatitic exposures within the Sacred Banana and Yoshi claim blocks. Thirteen exposures occur in close proximity to the Vaujours fault (Figure 1). WhiteRock Lithium personnel interpret that nine of the pegmatite exposures along the eastern extension of the Sacred Banana are high priority. Some of the pegmatites that were identified in 1998 consisted of outcrops that covered more than 900 square metres
