Yorkton Ventures Completes Acquisition of Cyr-K Lithium Project
Vancouver, British Columbia – February 8, 2022 – Yorkton Ventures Inc. (TSXV:YVI) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a group of three non-contiguous lithium properties, Key Lithium, Amisk West Lithium, and Amisk East Lithium, known together as the Cyr-Kapiwak Project, in the James Bay area of Quebec.
The Cyr-Kapiwak Project consists of 42 mineral claims with a total area of 2,220 hectares (22.20 km2) located roughly 100 km east of the town of Eastmain and 170 km south of the town of Radisson.
The Key Lithium Property is contiguous with (TSX:AKE) Allkem Limited’s James Bay Lithium Mine Property and 3 km from the James Bay Lithium Mine Project (planned mine) itself. The Amisk West and Amisk East Lithium properties are located several kilometres south of the Key Lithium Property and are both contiguous with Medaro Mining Corp’s (CSE: MEDA) Cyr South Lithium Property. The Amisk properties encompass large tracts of pegmatite-bearing granites that remain largely unexplored.
The Cyr-Kapiwak Project area is considered highly prospective for lithium hosted in spodumene-bearing pegmatites, with several historic occurrences mapped in the region. The Key Property contains three unique locations along a 1.5 km east-west structural geological trend where lithium-bearing boulders have been recorded.
Andrew Lee Smith, C.E.O. commented, “We are pleased to have acquired this pivotal claim block in the James Bay area giving us the opportunity to explore two highly prospective zones in the vicinity of (TSX:AKE) Allkem’s James Bay Project. Preparations for the 2022 field season are underway and YVI expects to be actively advancing its projects in Quebec during the summer field season.”
