We are excited to be in the field and carry out surface sampling of pegmatites. We have made considerable efforts to identify the most prospective targets with the aim of making significant lithium discoveries” commented Normand Champigny, CEO.

The work is being carried out by an experienced team of professionals of GeoVector Management Inc, based in Nepean, Ontario and with the guidance of ALS GoldSpot.

QPM is planning to collect several hundred samples on its projects. The drilling campaign for gold at Sakami is scheduled to begin in November.
