  • Disciplined cost management to maximise field work investment

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 30, 2024. SPOD Lithium Corp (“SPOD” or the “Company”) (CSE: SPOD) (OTCQB: SPODF) is pleased to update shareholders on the Company’s strategic plan for 2024 following the recent management change. The Company will shift its operational focus for the year 2024, aimed at strategically focused exploration programs which provide strategic opportunities to drive shareholder value.

Mathieu Couillard, President and CEO of SPOD, commented “SPOD is in a unique position, being well funded with over $1.7 million of cash on hand to execute its exploration strategy on its well-located assets in Quebec and Ontario. Exploration revolves around allocating the appropriate budget on the right projects.”

Significant Investment in 2024 Field Work Program

Quebec Properties:

SPOD is focusing on its MegaLi and Lithium Grande 4 (LG4) options on the properties adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s Corvette property, recognizing the immense potential these assets hold. The Corvette property encompasses an inferred mineral resource estimate of 109.2 million tonnes (Mt) at 1.42% Li2O (Patriot Battery Metals Inc press release, July 30, 2023) and several spodumene-bearing pegmatites have been recognized on SPOD’s projects. The upcoming work will involve a comprehensive mapping and sampling program, focusing on prime zones in preparation for a stripping program later this year. The Company plans to focus exploration and development in these promising regions.

Ontario Properties:

The Company has a portfolio of highly prospective properties in Ontario (North Nipigon-Niemi, Byron, Barbara, Ferdinand). The North Nipigon-Niemi projects are strategically located adjacent and between the Georgia Lake project from Rock Tech Lithium, and the Jackpot project from Imagine Lithium. As of 31 July 2022, the Georgia Lake project contains a Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) of 10.6 Mt Indicated Mineral Resource at a grade of 0.88% Li2O and 4.22 Mt of Inferred Mineral Resource at a grade of 1.0% Li2O (SEDAR, July 2022). And the Jackpot project returned recent drilling results as 25.46 m @ 1.21% Li2O, and 5 m @ 3.02% Li2O.

Building upon its advantageous location and the groundwork laid in the previous year, SPOD is preparing an exploration program that will encompass a rock and soil sampling program to identify the most prospective areas to allocate funds for a drill program.
