Vancouver, BC,June 24, 2022 – Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE:GEMS) (OTC:TLOOF) (FSE:B2I0) (the “Company” or “Infinity Stone”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter of intent (“LOI” or “Letter of Intent”) with Quartier Minerals Inc. (“Quartier”) to option the Galaxy Pegmatite Project located near Mont-Laurier, Quebec (the “Project”).
The Project is host to at least “30 pegmatite exposures which represent 30 pegmatite dikes”. Blasting and pitting has shown these pegmatites to have widths of 15 to 18 metres in outcrop. Analysis of the pegmatites shows anomalous quantities of lithium, tantalum, molybdenum, uranium, and thorium.(1)
A historical report on the Project suggested that the observed presence of lepidolite – an important lithium-bearing mica ore mineral – in outcrop could indicate significant quantities at depth.(1)

About Lithium-Cesium-Tantalum (LCT) Pegmatites in Quebec
The province of Quebec is host to an abundant amount of LCT-type pegmatite intrusions, most notably in regions such as northern Quebec between Eastmain and Nemiscau, and near Val d’Or and La Corne.
Lithium-cesium-tantalum (LCT) pegmatites comprise a compositionally defined subset of granitic pegmatites. The major minerals are quartz, potassium feldspar, albite, and muscovite; typical accessory minerals include biotite, garnet, tourmaline, and apatite. The principal lithium ore minerals are spodumene, petalite, and lepidolite. Most LCT pegmatites are hosted in metamorphosed supracrustal rocks in the upper greenschist to lower amphibolite facies. Lithium-cesium-tantalum pegmatite intrusions generally are emplaced late during orogeny, with emplacement being controlled by pre-existing structures. These pegmatites tend to show a regional mineralogical and geochemical zoning pattern with respect to the inferred parental granite, with the greatest enrichment in the more distal pegmatites.(2)
Terms of LOI
The LOI contemplates the Company’s and Quartier’s entry into a definitive option agreement (the “Definitive Agreement”) pursuant to which the Company will be entitled to earn up to a 100% interest in the Project upon the completion of the following within two years of execution:
- paying Quartier the sum of $50,000 on the date of the execution (the “Execution Date”) of the Definitive Agreement;
- paying Quartier the sum of $100,000 on the first anniversary of the Execution Date;
- carrying out a minimum of $100,000 in exploration expenditures on the Project within one (1) year of the Execution Date;
- carrying out a minimum of $200,000 in exploration expenditures on the Project within two (2) years of the Execution Date;
- issuing to Quartier 500,000 class A subordinate voting shares of the Company (each, a “Share”) on the Execution Date; and
- issuing to Quartier 500,000 Shares on the first anniversary of the Execution Date.
Upon earn-in under the Definitive Agreement, Quartier will retain a 2.5% net smelter royalty (“NSR”) over the Project, 1% of which may be purchased by the Company for $1,500,000.
About The Galaxy Pegmatite Project
The Galaxy Pegmatite Project covers 22 mineral claims and 2 pending claim applications covering 1,411 hectares in southern Quebec, approximately 45 kilometres northwest of Mont-Laurier, Quebec and 140 kilometres north of the city of Gatineau, Quebec. There is excellent access to all parts of the Property from road La Vérendrye 13, via the Trans-Canada Highway (Hwy QC-117), which traverses roughly through the middle of the Property. The Property is underlain by at least 30 pegmatite exposures representing 30 pegmatite dikes of Laurentian or more recent rocks of the Precambrian Grenvillian Series. The general strike of the formation is in a northwesterly direction with a near vertical dip. The five minerals associated with the pegmatites are lepidolite, columbite, samarskite, euxenite, and thorianite. The property is largely covered by quaternary till. (1)
