VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / October 5, 2022 / Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:MUSK)(OTC PINK:EMSKF)(FSE:1I30) is pleased to announce it will start its fifth exploration program for Phase 1, on its 100% owned "Elon" lithium project in Quebec. Intervention permit has been recently received for the drill program. The Company proceeded to trenching in 2022 but the overburden thickness was too significant to obtain samples beneath the overburden. The Company then requested the additional permitting to support a diamond drill campaign. The drilling work will start after the hunting season, around the end of October, and will be targeting magnetic anomalies and possible source of soil anomalies from the previously completed soil surveys.
Dynamic Discoveries Geosciences was previously mandated to identify targets using high resolution heliborne magnetic survey (2021) and DEM. Possible dyke swarms cross-cutting the interpreted intrusions, concordant with till anomalies which show a context alike the Quebec Lithium Mine located 600m south-west of the Elon Lithium Property (the "Property").
The Company is expected to drill 8 holes approximately 150m deep each, for a total 1200 meters. Six holes (001 to 005 and 008) are located on a previously authorized permit, while the last two (006 and 007) are subject to the authorization of a new permit. The holes targets magnetic low, possible sources of soil anomalies or interpreted contact between units (Table 1). Unexplored targets in the present program will be subject to future exploration work, such as shallow drilling or further trenching.
Table 1: Drill Holes Details.
|Hole 1 is located on the T4 Trench, it aims at the NNW-SSE low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion|
|Hole 2is located on the T10 Trench, it aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm|
|Hole 3 aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm|
|Hole 4 aims at the same low magnetic corridor than Hole 3, emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm|
|Hole 5 aims at the E-W low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion|
|Hole 6 aims at the E-W low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion|
|Hole 7 is located in the intrusion. It aim at the possible source of a soil anomaly in the area|
|Hole 8 is located on the trail to the T10 Trench, it aims at a low magnetic corridor emanating from the interpreted intrusion that has been interpreted as a possible dyke swarm|
Mountain Bike trails, Cross-Country Ski trails and other trails are present on the southern part of the Property. To prevent damage to these trails, the Company will be using existing roads outside of the trail system to access their drill pads (Figure 1).

The Property and Adjacent Properties
The Elon Property is strategically located in Abitibi, Qc at approximately 600 meters northeast of North American Lithium Project (recently acquired by Sayona Québec) and formerly known as Mine Québec Lithium. North American Lithium produced over 907,000 tons of material at 1.40% Li2O between 1955 and 1965 (Boily et al, 1989). In a June 28th, 2022 news release, Sayona Québec formally approved the restart of North American Lithium operation for lithium extraction and spodumene concentrate production. In September 2022 Sayona announced a 200 million dollars contract for the mining infrastructure development (September 27th, 2022 press release).
Jourdan Resources is investigating a pegmatite field approximately 1000m SE of the Elon Property, and has reported lithium content of up to 2.38% Li2O over 0.90m and 1.33% Li2O over 5.25m in pegmatites (June 9th, 2022 and July 7th, 2022 news release) and plans to conduct a second drilling campaign (September 15th, 2022 press release)
This indicates to the Company that the general area is fertile in lithium and that the regional environment is favorable for lithium discoveries.
Also, the Company settled $65,375 in related party accounts payable owing to three directors and one former director through the issuance of 1,307,500 common shares at a price of $0.05 per share. The securities issued pursuant to the debt settlement are subject to a statutory four-month-and-one-day hold period.
