  • These recently discovered LCT pegmatites on Rock Tech’s NSPA ground is considered very encouraging with respect to Victory’s claims and current 2023 exploration program which is now underway
  • Victory’s property shares similar geology and is along strike from Rock Tech’s advanced NSPA property. Victory’s ground is recognized as being highly prospective for the discovery of new LCT pegmatites on this under-explored property which has never been subject to systematic exploration and drilling using modern exploration techniques
  • Rock Tech Lithium (TSXV: RCK) is building a lithium ore processing facility for custom milling in Thunder Bay, to be online in early 2024, which with Ontario Government support will support mineral processing from other nearby Li mines

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA (5 June 2023) – Victory Battery Metals (CSE: VR) (FWB: VR61) (OTC: VRCFF) (“Victory” or the “Company”) is excited to announce the Company’s exploration team is onsite conducting its summer exploration program at its Georgia Lake Lithium Project in the Thunder Bay Mining District, Ontario.

“The Georgia Lake Lithium project is a strong lithium play in a proven lithium region. Our work program is being led by two geologists along with two prospectors and has been designed  towards identifying geological or geochemical indicators of Li bearing pegmatites on the Georgia Lake Property,” said Mr. Mark Ireton, Victory’s  President and CEO.

Victory’s Georgia Lake Lithium Project Exploration Program Details

The current exploration program consists of prospecting and sampling, as well as rock, till and stream sediment sampling directed towards identifying geological or geochemical indicators of Li bearing pegmatites on the Georgia Lake Property, and has been designed to build upon the information below:

  • Muscovite bearing granites are associated with lithium bearing pegmatites on Rock Tech’s property, which lies 1.8 km west of Victory Battery Metal’s Georgia Lake Property. The majority of the lithium bearing pegmatites occur within the metasediments which underlie both properties. These granites are shown to the south and east of the Georgia Lake Property on Pye’s 1965 regional map.1 This is the only mapping that has been done over Victory’s ground and is likely based on widely spaced traverses that would not have covered the area in detail
  • As the property is underlain by metasediments, and muscovite granites occur close to the property to the west, south and east, Victory considers the Georgia Lake Property to be highly prospective for Li bearing pegmatites overlooked during regional mapping

The discovery of new Li bearing pegmatite prospects on the Rock Tech ground is considered very encouraging with respect to Victory’s program on its under-explored Georgia Lake Property a few kilometers to the east

About Georgia Lake Lithium

  • Victory’s Georgia Lake property is 2 km east of Rock Tech Resources advanced lithium project within the Georgia Lake lithium District and hosts numerous Li bearing pegmatites
  • A 2022 Technical Report on the Georgia Lake Property produced a  Mineral Resource estimate which outlined 10.60 million tonnes (Mt) Indicated Mineral Resource at a grade of 0.88% Li2O and 4.22 Mt of Inferred Mineral Resource at a grade of 1.0% Li2O
  • In the Georgia Lake Lithium District, spodumene bearing pegmatites occur almost entirely within metasediments, usually spatially associated with mica bearing granitic rocks. Regional mapping by Pye (1965) indicates that Victory’s Georgia Lake property is largely underlain by metasediments
  • Pegmatites and mica granites are reported to the south, west and east of the Property
  • Mapping on Rock Tech’s ground has outlined additional bodies of mica granite not shown on Pye’s map, suggesting the possibility that previously unmapped mica granites and associated pegmatites may be found on Victory’s ground as well
