Mississauga (Canada), July 17, 2018: JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (the “Corporation”) (TSX-V: JOR, Stuttgart: 2JR1) has extracted 50 tonnes of spodumene rich material from its 100% owed Vallee Lithium Project adjacent to North American Lithium’s producing Quebec Lithium Mine. This material has now been crushed to minus ¾ inch and awaiting shipment to Process Research Ortech (“PRO”) in Mississauga, Ontario.
Magnor Exploration Inc. managed all aspects of the sample collection and preparation. Samples are ready for shipment in 1 tonne sack to PRO in Mississauga where they will be upgraded by flotation to make a concentrate. Previous work by PRO on drill core samples from the Vallee Lithium Project returned a concentrate of more than 5% Li2O (previously released on November 6, 2014).
“We are very please at the visual appearance of the blast material and have seen spodumene rich material ranging from 10% to 70% visually in the rock. Once all the crushed material has been concentrated by PRO and customers have the opportunity to complete their own evaluation of the spodumene concentrate, we expect to be able to demonstrate that our own rock is on par with the concentrate produced by Canada’s only lithium mine, North American Lithium’s Quebec Lithium Mine,” states Jourdan’s CEO Michael Dehn.
The current phase of field work should be completed shortly, and an exploration update will be issued with the Company’s findings while we await assay results.
Photos and videos of the blast area and crushing will be available on The Company’s website.
