ROUYN-NORANDA, QC, June 2, 2022 /CNW Telbec/ - X-Terra Resources Inc. (TSXV: XTT) (FRANKFURT: XTR) ("X-Terra") is pleased to announce that it recently acquired by staking three claim blocks totalling over 10,000 hectares in northern Québec that are collectively known as the Triple Lithium Project. The regional project is located in the James Bay, Québec region in an area newly mapped by the Province of Québec in 2018-2019.

X-Terra is currently building an exploration program based on the compilation of available information. X-Terra plans to initiate the sampling of pegmatite intrusions already identified on the provincial geological map over the next few months. X-Terra also plans to use a combination of remote sensing, geological mapping and geochemistry to identify drill targets for the next phase of exploration on this project.

The Triple Lithium Project is located along the Rupert-Cabot structural corridor where a strong density of granitic pegmatite where previously mapped. This type of rock is targeted as the main host rock to spodumene and is located along strike with the Nemaska Lithium project, known as one of the significant spodumene deposits found in the James Bay region in the Province of Québec. At this stage, X-Terra firmly believes it has secured significant prospective ground to undertake the evaluation of spodumene related lithium targets.

The X-Terra's Triple Lithium Project is split in three blocks centered of the Ruper-Cabot structural corridor.

Michael Ferreira, President and Chief Executive Officer of X-Terra commented: "The lithium market as well as the global electrification movement is something we can't ignore. By applying our exploration acumen, diversifying our property portfolio and expanding into the lithium exploration space, we will provide additional opportunities for our shareholders. We believe James Bay continues to demonstrate excellent potential for discovery of new spodumene bearing pegmatites, most recently with Patriot Battery Metals new major lithium discovery. We have already begun to outline new, favourable lithium targets in James Bay, Québec."

It is becoming increasing clear that the mining industry is unable to meet not only the current demand but also the expected demand for lithium carbonate, as it is the most common lithium battery component. According to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence, the electric vehicle market could reach $34B by 2030.
