Stria Lithium, Inc. (TSX.V:SRA)
OTTAWA, ONTARIO – January 13, 2023 – Stria Lithium Inc. (TSXV: SRA) (“Stria” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the helicopter-supported core drilling program has resumed after Christmas holidays at its flagship Pontax Lithium property, in west-central Eeyou Istchee Baie-James Territory of northern Québec. The drilling program aims to complete another 3 holes as it waits for the completion of a winter road to mobilize three land-based drill rigs to the site. This road is vital for carrying out the proposed 12,000 plus metres winter program designed to delineate a resource as well as test the extensions of the Central Pontax zone, to be completed by early April 2023.
The winter road construction contract was awarded to Waska Resources, a local indigenous company based in Waskaganish, Qc. We anticipate the road should be complete by the end of January 2023.
The winter core drilling program at the Pontax LSPD prospect was designed and will be overseen by partner Cygnus Gold Limited (ASX: CY5) (“Cygnus”).
IOS Services Géoscientifiques Inc. (IOS) of Saguenay, Québec, are providing technical and logistical support for the winter drilling program while core drilling was performed by Forage RJLL of Rouyn-Noranda, Québec.
In July 2022, Stria announced a partnership with Cygnus Gold Limited (ASX: CY5) (“Cygnus”) by which Cygnus has been granted the sole and exclusive option to acquire up to a 70 % undivided interest in Stria’s Pontax-Lithium property (“Pontax”) under a two-stage option for total cash payments of $6 million and exploration expenditure commitments totalling $10 million. Cygnus has been exploring the property under the terms of the first of the two-stage option, by which Cygnus is required to incur exploration expenditures on the Property in the amount of $4 million over a period of 18 months.
