Musk Metals Acquires Pontax South and Il Interdite Lithium Properties in James Bay, Quebec and Retains Benoit Moreau as VP of Exploration

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2023 / Musk Metals Corp. ("Musk Metals" or the "Company") (CSE:MUSK)(OTC PINK:EMSKF)(FSE:1I30) is pleased to announce that it has acquired two lithium properties strategically located in James Bay, Quebec.

The Pontax South property consists of 105 claims covering 5,603 hectares (56 km2) and immediately adjacent to the south to Li-Ft Power Ltd.'s Pontax project which contains the most extensive Lithium anomaly within Li-Ft's Quebec portfolio. The Pontax South Property is also 60 km southwest of Stria Lithium's Pontax project and 90 km southwest of Brunswick Exploration Inc.'s Anatacau West project.

All these projects are near the major NE-SW Causabiscau Shear Zone which is a sharp, steep, and deep-seated regional structure that is 50 to 200 m wide and over 160 km long, separating the Nemiscau Sedimentary Sub-Province from the La Grande Pluto-Volcanic Sub-Province. The Nemiscau Sub-Province is comprised mostly of metasediments and little greenstone belts, felsic intrusives and large masses of pegmatites.

The Causabiscau Shear Zone transects the Pontax South property over 16 km, representing approximately 10% of its total length. In addition, another regional Shear Zone, oriented E-W, crosscuts the property over 6 km. Many Lithium deposits and occurrences are closely and spatially associated to shear zones, evidencing entrapment, and tend to form at or near the contact of mafic, ultramafic or amphibolite rocks which are reported at Pontax South.

The Ile Interdite property consists of 20 claims covering 1,089 hectares (10.9 km2) and extends over 5 km along the Nottaway River Shear Zone, a prominent regional structure that can be followed over 200 km. Ile Interdite is near the contact between the Nemiscau Sedimentary and the Opatica Pluto-Volcanic Sub-Provinces, consisting of paragneiss and amphibolite rocks.

The Ile Interdite property hosts an important beryl showing that was identified in the 1960's by the same group of Quebec government geologists who reported spodumene at both Whabouchi and Cyr deposit's locations. Beryl is a relatively rare pathfinder mineral for lithium, often observed in pegmatites. At Ile Interdite, beryl is disseminated in a pegmatite.
