Raglan West – Strategically Located
With the 443 sq. km contiguous land package, upon completion of the Acquisition, Scout will control two-thirds of the Raglan West Lithium Camp based on overall staking to date (approximately 680 sq. km). This area is strategically located just 33 km southwest of the community of
Highlights – Scout’s Raglan West Claim Block
- The land package features some of the highest lithium and cesium values in lake sediments in the
Quebecgovernment database (see Figure 1, Geochemistry), including 16 out of 39 samples >99% (37.3 ppm and above);
- One sample at 99.98% (68 ppm) is in the top 21 lithium lake sediment samples in the entire
- The anomalous to extremely anomalous lake sediments appear to be associated with ESE and NE trending magnetic lineaments;
- Recent mapping by the
Geological Survey of Canada’sQuebec Division indicates the land package includes granites, tonalities, paragneiss and amphibolites; and
- An immediate focus of attention in upcoming exploration will be an historically mapped cluster of 12 pegmatites in a 2 km x 3 km area which also includes the property’s highest lake sediments in lithium, cesium and rubidium.
The Exploration Plan
A thorough and systematic first pass exploration program will be executed by a sizeable, highly trained team to locate and sample pegmatite outcrops across Scout’s vast holdings. Zones of interest will be surveyed by drones producing high detail imagery and 3D models to completely map the mineralized systems on surface as they are identified for follow-up program planning. This strategy will quickly vector toward the most prospective areas for a targeted drilling program using a lightweight and mobile Rotary Air Blast GT RAB Drill for initial drill testing, leading to high confidence diamond drilling of the top priority targets.
