In January 2022, Sayona announced the acquisition of 121 new claims in the vicinity of Moblan known as the Lac Albert Project. Located 3.5km west of the Moblan project, in the same proven lithium mining province, the new claims span 6,592 ha. These claims are separate to the current Moblan joint venture agreement.
Past work has been limited and the geology of the new claim area at Lac Albert is poorly understood, with much of the area obscured by glacial moraines. A till and soil sampling program was undertaken at Lac Albert in May 2022 and mapping of outcrops and boulders completed.
The identified pegmatites occurrences are located in an area afforded favourable access by its proximity
to the Route Du Nord, an all-weather regional highway. The area of the new claims is displayed below.
