Vancouver, British Columbia--Coloured Ties Capital Inc. (TSXV: TIE) (OTC Pink: APEOF) (FSE: 97A0) ("TIE" or the "Company") is providing the following update on Coloured Ties ongoing push for Azimut Exploration to explore its lithium projects portfolio in James Bay Quebec.
Coloured Ties is a TSX-V listed investment issuer and holds investments in entities involved in James Bay, Quebec lithium exploration entities. These entities include Patriot Battery Metals, Winsome Resources, Superior International Mining and privately held Quebec Pegmatite, Canuck Lithium, Flowing Lithium. Coloured Ties is also a significant shareholder of Azimut and entities related to Coloured Ties management also own common shares of Azimut Exploration and are pleased to learn of Azimut Exploration’s announcement towards an exploration program on Azimut’s very highly prospective lithium portfolio located in the James Bay region of Quebec.
On June 13, 2023, Azimut Exploration issued a news release where Azimut announced:
“Azimut Exploration Inc. is preparing a minimum 1,500-metre diamond drilling program to test several excellent lithium targets on the Galinee property in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Quebec. The Property is a 50/50 joint venture between Azimut and SOQUEM, operated by Azimut. Prospecting work at Galinee is planned to start after the restrictions related to current fire conditions are lifted. The drilling program is scheduled to start in August.
The maiden drilling program will test the down-dip extent of the significant discovery reported by Winsome Resources ("Winsome") on the adjacent Adina Property. At Adina, two east-west subparallel spodumene-bearing pegmatite zones have now been traced by drilling over a strike length of 830 metres for the Main Zone and 760 metres for the Footwall Zone (Winsome's press release of May 10, 2023).
Public data suggests the two mineralized zones on Adina dip south toward the Galinee Property. The aim of the drilling program is two-fold: 1) intersect the down-dip extensions of Winsome's Main and Footwall zones on Galinee, and 2) investigate the strong potential for additional sub parallel spodumene-bearing pegmatites starting at shallow depth on Galinee, immediately south of but geometrically above Adina's Main Zone (see Figures 10 and 11).”
The news release also summarizes Azimut renewed understanding on the James Bay region” which appears to be an emerging mineral province for lithium “ and highlights Azimuts lithium projects portfolio:
“James Bay Region: an Emerging Mineral Province for Lithium (see Figures 1 to 11)
Already known lithium deposits and major occurrences are widely distributed across the James Bay region, which appears to be an emerging mineral province for lithium. The region shares several features in common with large spodumene-bearing pegmatite districts worldwide, especially Western Australia, including comparable tectono-metamorphic frameworks, ages and host lithologies.
As previously reported (see press releases of January 23, February 23 and May 17, 2023 ), several lithium-focused exploration programs will be undertaken by Azimut this summer on the Pikwa, Dalmas and Pontois properties held in a joint venture with SOQUEM. In addition, Azimut has identified strong lithium potential on its Corvet Property (877 claims), Kaanaayaa Property (421 claims) and a newly generated James Bay Lithium project (13 blocks of claims, 2,940 claims), all these properties being held at 100% by the Company.
Azimut's management cautions that results or discoveries on surrounding properties are not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company's properties.”
Coloured Ties is pleased with this shift by Azimut Exploration towards a lithium focused exploration business model and continues to believe in the very high prospects on Azimut’s lithium portfolio in the James Bay region.
Coloured Ties remains committed to working with Azimut Exploration management to help the company maximize shareholder value thru its lithium portfolio in the James Bay region and may acquire or sells common share holdings in Azimut in context of the market and exploration results.
