Hinterland Metals is pleased to announce that it has increased the size of its Brexit Lithium property to 111 claims (5,938 hectares) by staking an additional 71 mineral claims.

The Brexit Lithium property is located in the James Bay region of Quebec approximately 40 kilometres southeast of the village of Nemaska, which is linked to Chibougamau, 300 kilometres to the south, by an all-season gravel road.

Other infrastructure in the area includes numerous gravel roads, an airport, and high-voltage hydro-electric transmission lines and sub-stations all maintained by Hydro Quebec.

The Brexit Lithium property covers an 18 kilometre length of the south margin of the volcano-sedimentary Mountain Lake Belt, and is roughly 15 kilometres southeast of Nemaska Lithium Inc.’s Whabouchi hard rock lithium project, which contains measured plus indicated resources of 27,991,000 tonnes of 1.57% Li20.

Nemaska recently released a positive feasibility study that includes the construction of a mine and concentrator at Whabouchi, and a hydrometallurgical plant in Shawinigan, Quebec (Nemaska Press Release, June 9, 2016).
