June 8, 2021, Vancouver, British Columbia – Quebec Silica Resources Corp. (CSE: QTZ) ("Quebec Silica" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that progress is being made towards commencing exploration on the Company's 100% owned Charlevoix high-grade silica project, approximately 40 km north of Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec, Canada (Figure 1). It is Management’s intent to develop and supply mineral resources essential in advanced battery technology.
Quebec Silica is currently in discussions with a few Quebec-based geosciences and engineering consulting firms (the "Consultants") regarding the subsequent exploration and development steps.
Quebec Silica is actively evaluating the various proposals submitted by the Consultants to decide the best fit firm to add to the Company's technical team. The Company's choice will be based on the best combination of the below criteria:
Technical experience advancing and developing silica and industrial mineral resources in Quebec.
Technical experience in the production of silica resources
A positive reputation in the project area, with local relationships and contacts with the surrounding communities.
Values of corporate social and environmental responsibility of the highest standards and in line with that of the Company.
The Company has started the process of permitting the exploration work and expects to complete a program this summer.
As shown on Figure 2, the Charlevoix project consists of 6 mineral claims totalling approximately 347 hectares (the "Property"). A quartzite formation comprised of high-grade silica is actively being mined by neighbouring operators is mapped to transect the Property. Through geological processes, the quartzite formation has experienced structural deformation such a folding; as a result the hinge of the fold lies near the centre of the Property and is mapped to be one of the widest occurrences of the formation in the area.
