TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jourdan Resources Inc. (TSXV: JOR; OTCQB: JORFF) (“Jourdan” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it is embarking on the next phase of diamond drilling on its flagship Vallée project. It is envisaged to drill 3600m or 18 holes of approximately 200m depth each. The aim is to significantly enlarge the known deposits in a northerly and easterly direction.

The drill program is anticipated to be conducted by Forage Hébert from Amos, Quebec, under the supervision of Alexandr Beloborodov Géologue Inc. (ABG Exploration) of Laval, Quebec.
The pegmatite dykes appear to become more abundant and wider further northwards and it is Jourdan’s intention to expand on historical drillholes during the next campaign. In the meantime, Jourdan has received permits for the next drill campaign scheduled to commence in the 1st quarter of 2022. This campaign aims at enlarging the strike extent of the multiple spodumene-bearing pegmatites on the flagship Vallée project.
Jourdan’s Chief Executive Officer, Rene Bharti, commented, “The Company is planning a very intensive drill program for 2022, with the goal of establishing an initial mineral resource in the coming months. We believe that this is the next critical step in moving towards our ambition of becoming Quebec’s next lithium producer.”
“We are excited to embark on the next phase of drilling”, said Dr. Andy Rompel, Executive Chairman of Jourdan, “and encouraged by the previous results to achieve our goal to extend the known deposit size substantially towards the north and the east.”
All samples are expected to be sent to Impact Global Solutions Inc.’s 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.
