An exploration crew flew in lately and has commenced fieldwork and soil sampling at Apollo. Contemplating that the Firm re-listed on 14 August 2023, this can be a large achievement. For this enterprise, the Firm has partnered with Laurentia Exploration Inc, a extremely respected exploration firm primarily based in Quebec, Canada. Laurentia is understood for its dynamic and versatile strategy and has achieved nice success throughout a wide range of initiatives within the James Bay area. With a staff of almost 60 skilled staff, Laurentia will function the turnkey exploration companion 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 total logistics administration.

Laurentia Exploration Inc. mobilised and commenced area work on the Apollo undertaking between the seventeenth and twenty first of August. Personnel lodging, lodging and logistics are at the moment being managed from Otish Camp positioned roughly 73 km to the Sout-East of the Apollo undertaking (see Determine 1*). Personnel and tools mobilisation between Otish Camp and the Apollo Challenge is undertaken each 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 numerous geological attributes reminiscent of 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 direction of areas with heightened potential.
Airborne Magnetic Survey
The corporate lately accomplished a high-resolution Airborne Magnetic Survey with a selected deal with the Apollo property as a substitute of counting on regional datasets. The survey has obtained extra detailed indicators from the property to higher 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 carried out at a 50m line spacing by Geo Information Options (GDS), a Canadian primarily based Airborne and Helicopter Geophysicist specialist. Determine 4* exhibits the elevated degree of analytical indicators of Apollo from the high-resolution survey.
The finished survey will assist the Firm to interpret the subsurface geology and constructions in higher element.
This can help in increase the geological mannequin for the undertaking and the next exploration and drilling technique. Current sand cowl and overgrowth could stop 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 significant east-west trending fault hall/shear characteristic is clear that extends from the Apollo undertaking to Winsome Assets Restricted’s Adina Lithium undertaking to the east. This hall/shear characteristic may management any potential spodumene mineralisation, See Determine 5*. Winsome Assets’ Adina Lithium undertaking is 29 km to the East of Apollo. Winsome Assets’ Adina undertaking has a complete strike size of lithium mineralised development 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 characteristic information together with field-based enter might be built-in with KorrAI know-how 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 may help establish variations within the density of subsurface supplies. This info can reveal the presence of geological constructions reminiscent of faults, folds, and buried constructions which may be related to spodumene mineral occurrences. 200 and sixty (260) pattern factors/readings have been acquired from the on-the-ground MicroGravity survey. An extra 1,335 deliberate pattern factors might be carried out in the end, see “yellow strains” in Determine 6*.
An preliminary 300 x 150m soil sampling program was carried out on the north-west a part of the Apollo Lithium Challenge accumulating 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 deal with these areas in shut spatial proximity to Greenstone (Lac Rouget Formation), Vieux Comptoir intrusive, and main recognized constructions.
Additional soil sampling will embody Precedence 1: Soil sampling (1,500 stations) at spacing of 300m x 150m protecting 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 protecting the northern and southern elements of the ‘Greenstone belt’ (see Determine 10*).
Precedence Targets for Future Drilling Marketing campaign
A closing interpretation was carried out to mix all obtainable info and designate precedence targets. Clusters of targets, notably targets that comply with topographic traits with a “whaleback” sample within the digital terrain fashions have been prioritized. Precedence goal factors are usually ranked into excessive, medium, and low and are separated into lessons 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 staff 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 corporations like Laurentia, throughout the undertaking’s due diligence section. 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 function in attaining this speedy on-site exploration. We stay up for reporting our progress within the coming months”, he mentioned.
