James Bay Minerals overview

James Bay Minerals is exploring for lithium in Canada with the funds raised from its recent ASX listing. The company has two early stage projects in the province of Quebec. 

The La Grande Project lies in the northwest of Quebec, covering an area of 224 km2. There are three areas of interest that will first be investigated. They’re named Joule, Aero and Aqua. The team also plans to evaluate them for other metals, including nickel, cobalt, copper and manganese.

The second asset is the Troilus Project. It’s located about 105 km northwest of mining town Chibougamau. The team currently know few details about its geology, but lithium bearing rocks have been found on neighbouring properties. Whether they’re also present at the Troilus site can only be confirmed after further studies. 

There are several other firms developing lithium mines in proximity of Troilus. These include Sayona Mining’s ($SYA) Moblan Project around 5 km to the south and the Sirmac-Clappier assets owned by Winsome Resources Ltd ($WR1) nearly 25 km west. 

James Bay Minerals could help with the demand for lithium by rechargeable batteries, especially for those in EVs, but there are many steps ahead to develop its projects. They will first need to establish whether their landholdings contain the mineral and whether the potential amounts are enough to make the mine a financially viable prospect.
