Jourdan Announces Elevated Li2O Grades From Its Drillhole Campaign

TORONTO, Dec. 20, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jourdan Resources Inc. (TSXV: JOR; OTCQB: JORFF) (“Jourdan” or the “Company”) is pleased to publish the next partial assay results of its September/October 2021 drilling campaign on its flagship Vallée project, which is located 35km north of Val-d’Or in Quebec, Canada. The results are from the first five drill holes and show multiple distinct zones of pegmatite intersections.

As mentioned in a press release dated October 15, 2021, the Company has completed its previously announced diamond drilling program, with 1,682 meters of drilling completed in October 2021. The Company has now received 62% of assay results from the program and awaits further assays from the program in which every hole showed multiple intersections of spodumene-bearing pegmatite. These last results are expected before the holidays.
The drill program was completed by Les Forages Géo-Nord of Dolbeau-Mistassini, Quebec, under the supervision of Alexandr Beloborodov Géologue Inc. (ABG Exploration) of Laval, Quebec.

The pegmatite dykes appear to become more abundant and wide further northwards and it is Jourdan’s intention to expand on historical drillholes during the next campaign.

Jourdan’s Chief Executive Officer, Rene Bharti, commented, “The latest drill results appear to confirm the commercial grade lithium that Jourdan possesses within its large land package. These results will keep us moving closer towards defining a resource, which will be a vital next step in becoming Quebec’s next lithium producer.”

“We are excited to report these grades of our second fence line drilled since 2011”, said Dr. Andy Rompel, Executive Chairman of Jourdan, “and we are keenly awaiting the next results for the remaining three holes. We feel extremely encouraged to continue drilling on our Vallée property to build on what is already known and to expand known deposits northwards and eastwards.”

All samples have been sent to Impact Global Solutions Inc. Laboratory in Delson, Québec (“IGS”) for analysis by sodium peroxide fusion and ICP finish. This laboratory is recognized by the industry and accredited ISO/MEC 17025 by the Standards Council of Canada. In addition to the quality assurance and quality control (“QA/QC”) employed by IGS, Jourdan developed a rigorous QA/QC protocol for its operators, including the insertion of analytical standard samples, duplicates and coarse silica blanks on a systematic basis.
