Lithium Drilling Program Commences at East Vallée

Program Will Continue to Trace NAL Mine Pegmatites Eastward

Toronto, Canada – Consolidated Lithium Metals Inc. (TSXV: CLM | OTCQB: JORFF | FRA: Z36) (“CLM” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Phase I 2024 drilling program has commenced on the Company’s East Vallée Lithium Project, located in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt approximately 30 km northwest of Val-d’Or, Quebec (see Figure 1). The East Vallée Project is located immediate east and adjacent to the Company’s Vallée JV Project (75% CLM and 25% Sayona Mining) and only 1,000 m east and along strike of Sayona’s North American Lithium (“NAL”) Mine, the largest operating lithium mining facility in North America.

On February 14, 2024, the Company announced that the Vallée JV partners had successfully traced the NAL Mine Pegmatite swarm from the Sayona NAL Mine Property across the entire Vallée JV Property right to the western boundary of the Company’s East Vallée Project (see CLM News which is available under the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at  The Core Pegmatite Dyke, the key dyke within the NAL Mine Swarm, has been traced over a 4.2 km strike length and remains open for expansion along strike to the east on CLM’s 100%-owned East Vallée Project.  The Company believes that the Core Pegmatite and adjacent spodumene-bearing dykes likely continue onto East Vallée. The East Vallée Project overlies an additional 5 km of the highly prospective Vallée Lithium Trend that has never been drill-tested for lithium (see Figure 2). Several other parallel lithium-bearing dykes have also been traced eastward to the East Vallée Property boundary.

The Phase I program will consist of 12 drill holes totaling approximately 2,400 m and will test the Core Pegmatite and flanking pegmatites along drill fences spaced 400 metres apart starting at the western property boundary. All necessary permits required to commence the program have been received which include authorization for supplemental drill sites which will allow the Company to immediately follow-up successful drill holes at tighter hole spacings. Forage Lamontagne Fortier has been contracted to provide drilling services.

Richard Quesnel, CLM’s CEO stated, “Since successfully tracing lithium-bearing pegmatites from the NAL Mine across our Vallée JV Property last November, we have been eagerly awaiting the commencement of this East Vallée drilling program. Pegmatite dykes along the Vallée Trend are known to pinch and swell along their strike length.  CLM is excited to continue to trace this swarm east along the Vallée Lithium Trend into untested lithium lands.  We are eagerly looking forward to the results of our drilling program this summer.”

Cautionary Statements

The content and grades of any mineral deposits at the Company’s properties are conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource on its properties and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in any target being delineated as a mineral resource. In addition, sample results at or around, and information applicable to, New Athona, the North American Lithium or Molybdenite Corporation mines are not indications of results that could be obtained at, or information applicable to, any of CLM’s properties.
