Mia property exploration target trends.

Q2 Metals Corp. of Vancouver has resumed exploration activities at the Mia lithium property located in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory of Quebec.

The Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests has lifted its restrictions on forest access that has remained in place in the western James Bay region due to wildfires on and near the property.

With the restrictions lifted, the Q2 geology team has mobilized and will immediately continue surface mapping/prospecting and rock sampling, the company says.

The primary objective of the upcoming program is to explore and confirm drill targets along the approximately 8-km long Mia trend which is located within a greenstone belt. The secondary objective will be to assess the potential of the broader trends on the property (above).

“We are excited to get back to the Mia property to continue our field work,” said Q2 president and CEO, Alicia Milne.

“We have a short window to conduct meaningful work before the culturally significant moose hunting season begins …after which time we will return to the property to continue our work.”

Commented Q2 VP Exploration, Neil McCallum, “I have confidence that our experienced geological team at Dahrouge Geological Consulting will be able to maximize our time in the field prior to drilling. With our time cut short this summer, we have modified our drill plan to test the targets this fall as much as the weather will allow, and then return in the winter with a larger program.”
