MONTREAL, QC / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2024 / Quebec Precious Metals Corporation (TSX.V:QPM)(FSE:YXEP)(OTCQB:CJCFF) ("QPM" or the "Corporation") congratulates Ophir Metals Corp. ("Ophir") on their discovery announced on June 25, 2024, of spodumene pegmatites (lithium) in pegmatite dykes at Pilipas in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory in Quebec. Ophir's discovery is located approximately 3.7 km northwest of its Ninaaskuwumin spodumene pegmatite its 100%-owned Elmer East project on the trend of this discovery (see Figures 1 and 2 below).

At Ninaaskuwumin, QPM reported assay values from the nine samples from the discovery outcrop range from 1.10% to 3.92% Li2O (see press release of January 18, 2024). Based on the lithium assays and the fractionation level of the pegmatitic material, derived from the pXRF K-Rb ratios for muscovite and K-Feldspar, the surface mineralization has the potential to extend along a NW-SE 3.8 km-long trend. The results for the Ophir's Pilipas discovery are not necessarily indicative of the mineralization on QPM's Elmer East project.

"Ophir's discovery shows that the areas around both discoveries have the potential to host one of the largest spodumene pegmatite resources in the James Bay region. We are planning to sample and drill our Ninaaskuwumin spodumene pegmatite in late summer and early fall and wish Ophir the best of success in making additional lithium discoveries" commented Normand Champigny, CEO.
