News Release


Vancouver, British Columbia, June 14, 2023: Rock Edge Resources Ltd. (the "Company" or "Rock Edge") (CSE: REDG) is pleased to announce that the Company has acquired additional land after concluding its 2023 field program on their Pag North property (the "Property") located 30 km southeast of Longlac, Ontario. The Property has been mapped and sampled for its rare-element pegmatite-hosted mineralization and gold potential.

Prospecting has uncovered several pegmatite dykes ranging in size from 0.5 to 15 m or more. Overburden stripping will need to be completed to determine actual widths. The pegmatites are typically white to yellowish in colour. Quartz and plagioclase graphic crystal intergrowth with subordinate muscovite (sometimes abundant), tourmaline, biotite and garnet are recognizable minerals in outcrop with possible beryl and a black mineral possibly identified as tantalite or columbite. These are favourable indicator minerals for possible fractionating rare-element pegmatites from a fertile parental melt. Analytical results will be needed to confirm rare-element levels. Sampling has been completed utilizing a rock saw.

The following salient features gained from the boots-on-the-ground field program underpin the potential of the Property to host rare-element pegmatite-hosted mineralization: 

  1. A total of 241 waypoints collected, with 54% of those being pegmatites. 
  2. A total of 144 samples were taken, with 72% of those comprising rock saw channel samples of pegmatites. 
  3. Of the pegmatite channel samples, 29% ranged between 0.5 to 1.0 m wide. 
  4. Pegmatite dyke geometry has been documented with widths between 10 cm and 30+ m wide traceable along strike up to 200 m in length. 
  5. Pegmatites are typically yellowish to white in colour with quartz and white feldspar graphic crystal intergrowth and contain coarse muscovite, tourmaline, biotite, garnet, possible beryl or apatite and a black mineral thought to be tantalite or columbite. These are favourable indicator minerals for possible fractionating rare-element pegmatites from a fertile parental melt (Breaks et al., 2003). Analytical results will be needed to confirm rare-element levels.

Charles Desjardins, CEO of Rock Edge, states, "We are incredibly excited about the Pag North property's immense potential. With these additional claims, Rock Edge looks to expand on Pag North's recently concluded exploration, which uncovered a high percentage of pegmatite samples, and their mineralogical characteristics underscore the untapped opportunities within this area. Pag North could be a game-changer for our Company representing a significant milestone in our quest to secure valuable lithium mineral resources."

The Transaction

Rock Edge acquired an additional 12 claims (244 cells) from two third parties, Gravel Ridge Resources Ltd. and 1544230 Ontario Inc. (collectively the “Vendors”) for an aggregate cash payment of $12,200. Subject to an amending agreement dated June 12, 2023, between the Vendors and the Company, the additional claims will be added to Schedule “A” and subject to the terms and conditions of the original Purchase Option Agreement Pagwachuan Lithium, dated February 6, 2023, between the Vendors and the Company. 

Maun Lithium Property

The Maun Lithium Property consists of 51 mining claims totaling 1,454 hectares. The property straddles the terrane boundary between the East Wabigoon and English River subprovinces. These terrane boundaries are integrally related to the location of northwestern Ontario lithium deposits and occurrences, as they act as deep-seated sutures for parental granitic melts (Breaks et al., 20031). The Maun Lithium Property is located approximately 2.3 km east of Superb Lake.  

Terrier Lithium Property

The Terrier Lithium property consists of 19 mining claims totaling 2,636 hectares. The property lies 8 km north of the English River-East Wabigoon terrane boundary. The property is located along the edge of a muscovite-bearing granitic pluton, a peraluminous S-type fertile parental granite (Breaks et al., 20031) and in contact with metasediments. Metasediments make excellent exo-contact hosts for rare-element pegmatites fractionating from a fertile granitic parent (Breaks et al., 20031). An east-trending structural feature mapped by the OGS transects the property providing possible pathways for parental granitic melts. Reconnaissance mapping by the Ontario Department of Mines in 1931 along river and lake systems identified several pegmatites hosted within muscovite-bearing granites and metasediments. Some of these occurrences are located on the Terrier Lithium Property. Diamond drilling by Anaconda Mining in 1956 investigating iron formations to the north of the property noted white pegmatites containing garnet, tourmaline, muscovite and some instances fluorite with downhole intervals up to 30 m (OGS assessment file 42L10NE0004). These minerals are good indicators of fractionation from a fertile parental granite (Breaks et al., 20031). Anaconda did not assay the pegmatites. 

Superb Lake Lithium Property

The property consists of approximately 2,378 hectares land in the O’ Sullivan Lake / Maun Lake area of the Thunder Bay Mining District of Northwestern Ontario, Canada. Geologically, the property is situated in the eastern part of Wabigoon Subprovince of the Superior Geological Province. The Superb Lake area has historical exploration work carried out since the 1950s with the discovery of lithium along the shores of Superb Lake. The Superb Lake pegmatite has a minimum outcrop exposure of a strike length of 16 m, and its width varies from 2.5 m at the shoreline to a maximum of 3.7 m, where an old blast pit was excavated. The results of four samples taken in 2020 from spodumene-rich part indicate lithium oxide (Li2O) values in the range of 1.77 % to 4.03%, and from December 14, 2022, a recorded surface channel #3 of 2.47% Li2O over 3.2 m, which includes 5.84% Li2O over 1.1 m.

Val-d’Or East Lithium Property

The property is located approximately 65km southeast from The NAL Lithium Processing Plant (A Piedmont/Sayona Joint Venture), which just announced it produced its first batch of spodumene concentrate (SC6) and 30km southwest of Val-d'Or, a logistics hub for mining service. Currently, three lithium refiners are in the works, with Sayona planning to commission a refinery that will output Lithium Hydroxide, located approximately 70km southeast of the property. Additionally, there is a third refinery planned by Nameska near Becancour, about 200km southeast of the Rock Edge's Val d'Or East Lithium Project.

The property is contiguous to Sayona Mining Limited's (ASX: SYA) Property and to Brunswick exploration property. The Property lies chiefly on the metagraywackes of the Pontiac Geological Subprovince. The Réservoir Decelles Batholith is located 1-3km away from the Property and consists of a heterogeneous granite which contains muscovite-pegmatites. The vicinity of the Property was prospected for Cu-Ni (Lac Granet, Lac Louvicourt-South and Céré-Villebon), and the search for pegmatites was ignored until very recently.
