MONTREAL, Feb. 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Brunswick Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: BRW, OTCQB: BRWXF; “BRW” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has begun construction of a winter road for a drilling campaign at the Elrond project, located in Eeyou Istchee-James Bay Region of Quebec. This maiden drilling campaign will begin in March and will test the Arwen spodumene-bearing pegmatite that was discovered during prospecting last September by the BRW team. The Arwen showing and the Elrond property have never been drilled.

The Arwen pegmatite is exposed over a surface area measuring approximately 250 meters by 100 meters, dipping shallowly to the north. The outcrop is well mineralized and three representative grab samples returned values between 1 and 3% Li2O. The pegmatite remains open in all directions (see press release dated October 3rd, 2023). Previous to drilling activities, a high-resolution airborne magnetic survey was flown in the fall of 2023 and suggests that the Arwen showing is emplaced in a favorable structural corridor that is 4km long and 500m wide. The target area is proximal to infrastructure, located approximately 12km from the Billy-Diamond Highway and drilling activities will be ground supported via a winter road.

Mr. Killian Charles, President and CEO of BRW, commented: “In 2023, BRW made three significant grassroot discoveries including Mirage (where a winter campaign is currently underway), Arwen and Anatacau Main. With the start of another drilling campaign, BRW is aggressively advancing its portfolio and building upon its recent discoveries. I am particularly excited by the size of the Arwen showing and this new drill program will test the extension of the discovery at depth and along-strike with the goal to prove the potential of the Elrond project.”
