September 11, 2019 Vancouver, British Columbia: QMC Quantum Minerals Corp., (TSX.V: QMC) (FSE: 3LQ) (OTC PINK: QMCQF) (“QMC” or “the Company”) is pleased to report initial assay results from the 2019 drill program on the Company’s 100% owned Irgon Lithium Mine Project located within the prolific Cat Lake-Winnipeg River rare-element pegmatite field of S.E. Manitoba. This pegmatite field also hosts Sinomine Resource’s nearby Tantalum Mining Corporation of Canada (“TANCO”) rare-element pegmatite (formerly owned by Cabot Corporation).
President and chief executive officer of QMC Minerals Balraj Mann stated: “We are extremely pleased with the current results as they confirm significant high-grade spodumene mineralization continues to depth. Spodumene mineralization was present in all holes. The best assay was in drill hole IR-19-06 which reported 2.95% Li2O over 0.75m and followed closely by drill hole IR 19-09 which returned 2.87% Li2O over 1.25m. The data received to date are currently being utilized by SGS Canada to prepare a resource estimate on the property. The recent acquisition of the TANCO Lithium Mine by Sinomine Resource Group presents QMC the opportunity to have material processed at the TANCO facility.”
- IR-19-09 returned 3.65 metres of 1.85% Li2O, including 2.46% Li2O, 87 ppm tantalum, 26 ppm cesium and 49 ppm niobium over 2.51 metres.
- IR-19-01 returned 9.75 metres of 1.29% Li2O, including 1.50% Li2O, 300 ppm tantalum, 47 ppm cesium and 82 ppm niobium over 2.51 metres.
