An exploration crew flew in lately and has commenced fieldwork and soil sampling at Apollo. Contemplating that the Firm re-listed on 14 August 2023, it is a large achievement. For this enterprise, the Firm has partnered with Laurentia Exploration Inc, a extremely respected exploration firm primarily based in Quebec, Canada. Laurentia is understood for its dynamic and versatile strategy and has achieved nice success throughout a wide range of initiatives within the James Bay area. With a workforce of almost 60 skilled staff, Laurentia will function the turnkey exploration associate for Lithium Universe in Quebec. Their tasks embody all elements of the exploration work, together with web site geological assessments, drilling operations, allowing, helicopter entry, and total logistics administration.

Laurentia Exploration Inc. mobilised and commenced subject work on the Apollo venture between the seventeenth and twenty first of August. Personnel lodging, lodging and logistics are at present being managed from Otish Camp situated roughly 73 km to the Sout-East of the Apollo venture (see Determine 1*). Personnel and gear mobilisation between Otish Camp and the Apollo Mission is undertaken day by day by a Bell 212 helicopter (see Figures 1 and a pair of*) operated by Panorama Helicopters offering Heli-Supported operations.
Exploration Technique utilizing AI Expertise
The Firm has initiated the utilization of Synthetic Intelligence (AI) to form its exploration technique.
Collaborating with KorrAI Applied sciences Restricted (KorrAI) in Canada, the Firm is tapping into KorrAI’s technological prowess to leverage satellite tv for pc knowledge and AI methods, elevating the requirements of subject exploration methodologies. This collaboration goals to streamline fieldwork period, optimize expenditure, and elevate exploration outcomes by harnessing data-driven insights. KorrAI’s core methodology revolves round using Synthetic Intelligence for the interpretation and evaluation of satellite tv for pc knowledge and visible content material. Using subtle algorithms, KorrAI has generated intricate maps delineating numerous geological attributes equivalent to outcrops, pegmatites, and vein configurations. Moreover, by integrating spectral knowledge, the identification of promising mineral-rich zones has been facilitated. This strategy guides the efforts of LU7’s subject groups, channelling their focus in the direction of areas with heightened potential.
Airborne Magnetic Survey
The corporate lately accomplished a high-resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey with a selected concentrate on the Apollo property as a substitute of counting on regional datasets. The survey has obtained extra detailed indicators from the property to raised perceive its structural framework and rocks that might host LCT pegmatites. LU7 accomplished a 14-day, 5596 line Km Hello-Decision Airborne Magnetic (AMAG) Survey performed at a 50m line spacing by Geo Knowledge Options (GDS), a Canadian primarily based Airborne and Helicopter Geophysicist specialist. Determine 4* reveals the elevated degree of analytical indicators of Apollo from the high-resolution survey.
The finished survey will assist the Firm to interpret the subsurface geology and constructions in higher element.
This may help in build up the geological mannequin for the venture and the next exploration and drilling technique. Latest sand cowl and overgrowth could stop these relationships from being mapped on the floor.
Following the Airborne Magnetic Survey, the corporate utilised property scale geophysics to facilitate a complete structural evaluation of the world. The Firm believes that the structural geophysics evaluation could also be indicative of potential for LCT pegmatitic dykes following distinct regional and native scale structural corridors. It seems that a serious east-west trending fault hall/shear characteristic is obvious that extends from the Apollo venture to Winsome Sources Restricted’s Adina Lithium venture to the east. This hall/shear characteristic might management any potential spodumene mineralisation, See Determine 5*. Winsome Sources’ Adina Lithium venture is 29 km to the East of Apollo. Winsome Sources’ Adina venture has a complete strike size of lithium mineralised pattern of over 3 km, with mineralisation remaining open to each the east and west of reported intercepts. Drilling at Winsome Sources’ Adina has delivered some spectacular outcomes, together with 1.34% Li2O over 107.6m from 2.3m to 109 .9m and as excessive as 1.92% Li2O over 30m.
This hall/shear characteristic knowledge together with field-based enter might be built-in with KorrAI know-how mixed Satellite tv for pc knowledge and Synthetic Intelligence (AI) will generate drill-ready exploration targets for future subject and drilling campaigns. In different phrases, our first goal drilling could also be alongside these hall shear options.
A ground-based Micro-Gravity survey was accomplished by Geophysique TMC on traces 1 and a pair of within the northwest a part of the Apollo Lithium Mission. See the “inexperienced traces” in Determine 7*. Micro-Gravity surveys might help determine variations within the density of subsurface supplies. This data can reveal the presence of geological constructions equivalent to faults, folds, and buried constructions that could be related to spodumene mineral occurrences. 200 and sixty (260) pattern factors/readings have been acquired from the on-the-ground MicroGravity survey. An additional 1,335 deliberate pattern factors might be performed in the end, see “yellow traces” in Determine 6*.
An preliminary 300 x 150m soil sampling program was performed on the north-west a part of the Apollo Lithium Mission amassing a complete 674 samples, See Determine 8*. Soil sampling permits the Firm geologists to analyse the focus of lithium within the soil, which may present a sign of the underlying geology and potential lithium-bearing minerals. Lithium, if current in rocks and minerals that climate over time, releases lithium ions into the soil. The continuation of a soil sampling programme will intention to concentrate on these areas in shut spatial proximity to Greenstone (Lac Rouget Formation), Vieux Comptoir intrusive, and main recognized constructions.
Additional soil sampling will embody Precedence 1: Soil sampling (1,500 stations) at spacing of 300m x 150m overlaying a majority of the ‘Greenstone belt’ and the E-W trending magnetic low construction (see Determine 10*).
Precedence 2: Soil sampling (1,100 factors) at spacing of 600m x 150m overlaying the northern and southern components of the ‘Greenstone belt’ (see Determine 10*).
Precedence Targets for Future Drilling Marketing campaign
A ultimate interpretation was performed to mix all out there data and designate precedence targets. Clusters of targets, notably targets that comply with topographic tendencies with a “whaleback” sample within the digital terrain fashions have been prioritized. Precedence goal factors are usually ranked into excessive, medium, and low and are separated into courses of LCT targets. Determine 11* reveals a few of these targets that could be included in a future drilling program.
Chairman Iggy Tan expressed his satisfaction with the swift presence of the exploration workforce on the Apollo web site shortly after relisting. “Our Head of Geology, Justin Rivers, and CEO Alex Hanly successfully managed the institution of partnership connections, together with with firms like Laurentia, in the course of the venture’s due diligence section. The initiation of the allowing course of, strategically aligned with the relisting timeline, enabled the immediate mobilization of our exploration crew. Diligent foresight and anticipation performed a pivotal position in attaining this fast on-site exploration. We stay up for reporting our progress within the coming months”, he stated.
