 Distribution of prospects at Tansim project including the first priority Viau Dallaire and Viau
The priority prospects within the project are Viau Dallaire and Viau

Sayona Mining Ltd (ASX:SYA) has commenced exploration activities at its 12,000-hectare Tansim lithium project in Quebec, Canada.

A site visit by geologists has identified large spodumene crystals at the Viau Dallaire pegmatite system.

Mapping and sampling programs are being planned to define drill targets.

Sayona’s managing director Dan O’Neill said: “The company will draw on its significant experience and expertise in lithium geology in the region, developed through more than 20,000 metres of drilling and exploration at Authier.

“Tansim demonstrates stand-alone potential but could be developed as a complementary satellite operation to Authier, where the company is currently completing a definitive feasibility study.”

Recent airborne geophysics have confirmed a large east-west structural corridor extending over 9 kilometres where pegmatite dykes have been mapped and sampled on surface.

The priority focus of the exploration program is to define drilling targets at the following priority prospects:

• Viau Dallaire - a 300-metre long dyke 12-20 metres thick with three channel samples including 10.3 metres at 1.40% lithium oxide, 11.15 metres at 0.84% lithium oxide and 18.95 metres at 0.94% lithium oxide; and
• Viau - pegmatites have been mapped up to 200 metres long and 30 metres wide and two separate channel samples returned grades of up to 2.77% lithium oxide and 1.37% lithium oxide over 3.2 metres, respectively.
