Toronto (Canada) – JOURDAN RESOURCES INC. (TSXV: JOR; OTCQB: JORF; FRA: 2JR1) (“Jourdan” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce details of its planned summer exploration program on its Baillargé project. The known four Li-bearing pegmatites at the property, which were exposed along strike during last summer’s mapping and soil sampling campaign, is scheduled to be extensively drilled during Jourdan’s 2023 summer campaign. Jourdan applied for and has obtained permits for 20 drillhole sites, which are intended to test the four different pegmatites with known spodumene occurrences.
Four known pegmatite dykes with spodumene minerals will be targeted by the 20 drillholes with a total of 3,000m of diamond drilling. Soil sampling over the Baillargé property (Figure 1) indicated anomalies in the vicinity of the outcrops, namely just south of Lac Baillargé.

“We intend to embark on an extensive exploration program at Baillargé”, said Dr. Andy Rompel, executive chairman of Jourdan, “as we see similar potential to our flagship Vallée project with its highly prolific pegmatite swarm. We have already identified four individual pegmatites laden with spodumene (up to 50cm in length, as mentioned in a press release dated December 12, 2022), and this area is known by us to have high-grade lithium assay results, and we have secured the requisite permits to drill.”
Rene Bharti, Jourdan’s chief executive officer commented, “Jourdan is excited to begin drilling at another one of our properties. Having such a relatively large land position allows us multiple areas to explore in addition to the extensive work being conducted with North American Lithium on a portion of our Vallée property. We are very encouraged by the initial work completed at Baillargé and look forward to an extensive drill program to establish an initial mineral resource estimate.”
