Koba’s JB1 Lithium Project is located within Quebec’s prolific James Bay lithium province; just 12km along strike from the Rose Lithium Deposit where resources comprise 34.2Mt @ 0.9% Li₂O.  Previous drilling at the JB1 Project has intersected significant thicknesses of pegmatites that are highly prospective for lithium and have never been assayed for lithium.

The James Bay region is emerging as one of the world’s major lithium districts. A growing list of mining companies have staked tenements in the region due to its abundance of lithium discoveries, established infrastructure and proximity to North America’s burgeoning battery manufacturing industry.

The project is surrounded by several major lithium developments including:

  • Abitibi Hub: 119.1Mt @ 1.4% Li2O).
  • Whabouchi Lithium Deposit: 55.7Mt @ 1.4% Li2O).
  • James Bay Lithium Deposit: 110.2Mt @ 1.3% Li2O).
  • Rose Lithium Deposit: 34.2Mt @ 0.9% Li2O).
  • Moblan Lithium Deposit: 16.1Mt @ 1.4% Li2O).

Recent Exploration Success

In addition there has been some recent exploration success for ASX listed explorers including:

  • Patriot Battery Metals have returned drill intercepts at its Corvette Project including 159.6m @ 2.1% Li₂O and 159.7m @ 1.7% Li₂O ;
  • Winsome Resources have returned a best drill intercept at its Adina Project of 107.6m @ 1.3% Li₂O and at its Cancet Project of 26m @ 1.6% Li₂O.
  • Loyal Lithium has discovered spodumene-rich pegamtites at its Trieste project.

JB1 highly-prospective for lithium-pegmatites.

  • JB1 consists of two granted claim blocks for 190km2 and although the area is highly-prospective for lithium-bearing pegmatites similar to those at the nearby Rose Lithium Deposit (34.2Mt @ 0.9% Li2O) the area has never been explored for lithium.
  • Limited exploration includes 12 holes for 1,328m with none of the holes targeting lithium mineralisation. Despite this 10 of the 12 holes intersected pegmatites with over 12m of pegmatite logged in drill hole 555-10. None of these holes were assayed for lithium.
