Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – September 1, 2022) – Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE: GEMS) (OTC Pink: TLOOF) (FSE: B2I) (the “Company” or “Infinity Stone“), is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement to acquire, from an arm’s length party, a 100% interest in and to the Taiga Lithium Project (the “Taiga Lithium Project” or “Project“) adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals’ Corvette Lithium discovery in the James Bay Region of Quebec. Patriot Battery Metals has made several recent announcements with regard to their project, including their announcement on August 10, 2022 identifying “a total of thirty-one (31) spodumene-bearing pegmatite outcrops identified, including twenty (20) outcrops with estimated >5% modal spodumene content”.(1)
About the Taiga Lithium Project
The 923-hectare Taiga Lithium Project is located 3.4 kilometres west of Infinity Stone’s Camaro Property, directly adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s (“Patriot” or “PMET“) Corvette Property, in the James Bay Region of Quebec, approximately 235 kilometres east of Radisson, Quebec and 245 kilometres northeast of the Cree village municipality of Nemaska. The northern edge of the Project is located approximately 15 kilometres south of the Trans-Taiga road and transmission line. The region has been historically explored for its rich gold, copper, silver, base metal and PGE deposits.
The Project hosts four historically mapped pegmatite occurrences, with the largest measuring over 900 square metres in size. Three pegmatites occur at the western portion of the Project and one near the eastern edge.
“Infinity Stone is excited to further increase our position in the rapidly expanding James Bay Lithium District. Our team is hopeful that the identified LCT pegmatite trend in the corridor presents a number of occurrences trending northeast to southwest,” said Michael Townsend, Executive Chairman of Infinity Stone. “The Taiga Lithium Project is strategically positioned with existing mapped pegmatites that present significant discovery potential given recent developments from other operators in the region,” further stated Mr. Townsend. “It is evident from regional mapping that there is a high potential there are additional pegmatites present on the Project,” concluded Mr. Townsend.
The addition of the Taiga Lithium Project to Infinity Stone’s existing land position in the area, being the Camaro Project, brings the Company’s total land position in the area to 1,282 hectares.
Patriot has been conducting grassroots exploration on the gold, copper, silver, molybdenum and PGE showings across its FCI and Corvette properties for several years. In 2017, Patriot discovered the CV Lithium Trend.
The CV Lithium Trend is an emerging lithium-bearing pegmatite district that spans Patriot’s Corvette Property with a reported length of over 25 kilometres, remaining open further along strike. This new discovery on the Corvette Property has been attributed to the fact that previous historical work has never specifically targeted lithium. (1)(2)
Four grab samples taken from the CV8 showing on the Corvette Property, located approximately 1,400 metres north of Infinity Stone’s Taiga Lithium Property, averaged 4.6% Li2O.(2)
In 2019, a work program on the Corvette Property identified several new high grade copper-gold mineralized areas located 700 to 1,500 metres north of the Taiga Lithium Property. Through limited exploration, Patriot also identified seven “well mineralized” new lithium occurrences (CV5 – CV11).(3)
