An exploration crew flew in not too long ago and has commenced fieldwork and soil sampling at Apollo. Contemplating that the Firm re-listed on 14 August 2023, this can be a great achievement. For this enterprise, the Firm has partnered with Laurentia Exploration Inc, a extremely respected exploration firm based mostly in Quebec, Canada. Laurentia is thought for its dynamic and versatile strategy and has achieved nice success throughout a wide range of initiatives within the James Bay area. With a workforce of practically 60 skilled staff, Laurentia will function the turnkey exploration associate for Lithium Universe in Quebec. Their obligations embody all features of the exploration work, together with web site geological assessments, drilling operations, allowing, helicopter entry, and general logistics administration.

Laurentia Exploration Inc. mobilised and commenced area work on the Apollo mission between the seventeenth and twenty first of August. Personnel lodging, lodging and logistics are at the moment being managed from Otish Camp situated roughly 73 km to the Sout-East of the Apollo mission (see Determine 1*). Personnel and gear mobilisation between Otish Camp and the Apollo Challenge is undertaken every day by a Bell 212 helicopter (see Figures 1 and a couple of*) operated by Panorama Helicopters offering Heli-Supported operations.
Exploration Technique utilizing AI Expertise
The Firm has initiated the utilization of Synthetic Intelligence (AI) to form its exploration technique.
Collaborating with KorrAI Applied sciences Restricted (KorrAI) in Canada, the Firm is tapping into KorrAI’s technological prowess to leverage satellite tv for pc information and AI strategies, elevating the requirements of area exploration methodologies. This collaboration goals to streamline fieldwork period, optimize expenditure, and elevate exploration outcomes by harnessing data-driven insights. KorrAI’s core methodology revolves round using Synthetic Intelligence for the interpretation and evaluation of satellite tv for pc information and visible content material. Using subtle algorithms, KorrAI has generated intricate maps delineating various geological attributes comparable to outcrops, pegmatites, and vein configurations. Moreover, by integrating spectral information, the identification of promising mineral-rich zones has been facilitated. This strategy guides the efforts of LU7’s area groups, channelling their focus in the direction of places with heightened potential.
Airborne Magnetic Survey
The corporate not too long ago accomplished a high-resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey with a selected give attention to the Apollo property as a substitute of counting on regional datasets. The survey has obtained extra detailed alerts from the property to raised perceive its structural framework and rocks that would host LCT pegmatites. LU7 accomplished a 14-day, 5596 line Km Hello-Decision Airborne Magnetic (AMAG) Survey performed at a 50m line spacing by Geo Knowledge Options (GDS), a Canadian based mostly Airborne and Helicopter Geophysicist specialist. Determine 4* exhibits the elevated degree of analytical alerts of Apollo from the high-resolution survey.
The finished survey will assist the Firm to interpret the subsurface geology and constructions in larger element.
This may help in build up the geological mannequin for the mission and the following exploration and drilling technique. Latest sand cowl and overgrowth could forestall these relationships from being mapped on the floor.
Following the Airborne Magnetic Survey, the corporate utilised property scale geophysics to facilitate a complete structural evaluation of the world. The Firm believes that the structural geophysics evaluation could also be indicative of potential for LCT pegmatitic dykes following distinct regional and native scale structural corridors. It seems that a serious east-west trending fault hall/shear function is clear that extends from the Apollo mission to Winsome Assets Restricted’s Adina Lithium mission to the east. This hall/shear function may management any potential spodumene mineralisation, See Determine 5*. Winsome Assets’ Adina Lithium mission is 29 km to the East of Apollo. Winsome Assets’ Adina mission has a complete strike size of lithium mineralised pattern of over 3 km, with mineralisation remaining open to each the east and west of reported intercepts. Drilling at Winsome Assets’ Adina has delivered some spectacular outcomes, together with 1.34% Li2O over 107.6m from 2.3m to 109 .9m and as excessive as 1.92% Li2O over 30m.
This hall/shear function information together with field-based enter shall be built-in with KorrAI expertise mixed Satellite tv for pc information and Synthetic Intelligence (AI) will generate drill-ready exploration targets for future area and drilling campaigns. In different phrases, our first goal drilling could also be alongside these hall shear options.
A ground-based Micro-Gravity survey was accomplished by Geophysique TMC on strains 1 and a couple of within the northwest a part of the Apollo Lithium Challenge. See the “inexperienced strains” in Determine 7*. Micro-Gravity surveys might help establish variations within the density of subsurface supplies. This data can reveal the presence of geological constructions comparable to faults, folds, and buried constructions which may be related to spodumene mineral occurrences. 200 and sixty (260) pattern factors/readings had been acquired from the on-the-ground MicroGravity survey. An extra 1,335 deliberate pattern factors shall be performed in the end, see “yellow strains” in Determine 6*.
An preliminary 300 x 150m soil sampling program was performed on the north-west a part of the Apollo Lithium Challenge gathering a complete 674 samples, See Determine 8*. Soil sampling permits the Firm geologists to analyse the focus of lithium within the soil, which might present a sign of the underlying geology and potential lithium-bearing minerals. Lithium, if current in rocks and minerals that climate over time, releases lithium ions into the soil. The continuation of a soil sampling programme will purpose to give attention to these areas in shut spatial proximity to Greenstone (Lac Rouget Formation), Vieux Comptoir intrusive, and main recognized constructions.
Additional soil sampling will embrace Precedence 1: Soil sampling (1,500 stations) at spacing of 300m x 150m masking a majority of the ‘Greenstone belt’ and the E-W trending magnetic low construction (see Determine 10*).
Precedence 2: Soil sampling (1,100 factors) at spacing of 600m x 150m masking the northern and southern elements of the ‘Greenstone belt’ (see Determine 10*).
Precedence Targets for Future Drilling Marketing campaign
A remaining interpretation was performed to mix all out there data and designate precedence targets. Clusters of targets, notably targets that comply with topographic traits with a “whaleback” sample within the digital terrain fashions had been prioritized. Precedence goal factors are typically ranked into excessive, medium, and low and are separated into courses of LCT targets. Determine 11* exhibits a few of these targets which may be included in a future drilling program.
Chairman Iggy Tan expressed his satisfaction with the swift presence of the exploration workforce on the Apollo web site shortly after relisting. “Our Head of Geology, Justin Rivers, and CEO Alex Hanly successfully managed the institution of partnership connections, together with with firms like Laurentia, throughout the mission’s due diligence part. The initiation of the allowing course of, strategically aligned with the relisting timeline, enabled the immediate mobilization of our exploration crew. Diligent foresight and anticipation performed a pivotal position in reaching this fast on-site exploration. We sit up for reporting our progress within the coming months”, he stated.
