Comet to Commence Intensive Field Program
at Flagship Liberty Property


  • Field work to commence on June 4th at the Liberty Lithium Property with Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd.
  • Comet will complete an intensive and focused exploration program with a total of 32 planned traverses, with 20 being high priority targets.
  • A 14-day program with 3 skilled teams, with Comet’s VP Exploration, Vincent Cardin-Tremblay also participating in the exploration efforts.

Rouyn-Noranda, Québec, Canada, May 29, 2024 – Comet Lithium Corporation (TSXV: CLIC) (FSE: 8QY) (“Comet Lithium” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce the commencement of the 2024 Phase 1 Exploration Program on its 100%-owned flagship Liberty property (the “Liberty Property”) on June 4, 2024. The Corporation has engaged Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. to strengthen its team for the surface exploration program.

Three skilled field teams have been assigned to investigate and traverse twenty high-priority target areas (represented in red color on Figures 1 & 2 below) in the most prospective part of the Liberty Property, located in the southern area thereto. Specifically, three traverses will pass through all priority 1 targets during the early days of the program to maximize the chances of discovery. Additionally, seven priority 2 areas (represented in yellow color on Figures 1 & 2 below) have been identified in the northern part, and five priority 3 areas (represented in blue color on Figures 1 & 2 below) are located in the most prospective zone in the south with an east-west orientation.

The Corporation’s priority prospecting targets were identified using LIDAR, with the high-priority targets in red color representing areas where the bedrock is most likely outcropping or sub-outcropping. The priority 2 targets in yellow color are areas of topographic anomalies that may indicate possible outcrops. Several interesting topographic anomalies are present in the central part of the south-west portion of the Liberty Property, showing relatively good correlation with magnetic and gravity anomalies.

During the extensive field program, the teams will also conduct a fractionation survey across the traversed areas to map potential target zones. A typical approach to identifying lithium-enriched pegmatites involves sampling non-lithium minerals, such as K-feldspar and muscovite, which serve as proxies for assessing the chemical evolution and rare-element enrichment of pegmatites.

“We are thrilled to launch the 2024 Phase 1 Exploration Program at our flagship Liberty Property,” commented Vincent Metcalfe, Chair and CEO of Comet Lithium. “With the expertise of our dedicated field teams, we are confident in our strategy to thoroughly investigate and traverse the high-priority target areas. This field program is designed to maximize our chances of discovering lithium mineralization, particularly in the most prospective areas identified through LIDAR and gravity survey results. We look forward to the completion of this field program, the results therefrom and ultimately the potential value of the Liberty Property.”
