VANCOUVER, BC,Feb. 4, 2021/CNW/ – MegaWatt Lithium and Battery Metals Corp. (CSE: MEGA) (the “Company” or “MegaWatt“) in conjunction with the previously announced name and symbol change is pleased to provide a project portfolio review and exploration summary. The Company anticipates growth in markets for cobalt, lithium, copper and silver as well as other battery metals as global electrification gathers momentum.Cobalt HillThe Cobalt Hill Property, consists of eight mineral claims covering an area of approximately 1,727.43 hectares located in the Trail Creek Mining Division in the Province ofBritish Columbia, Canada. The Company was initially attracted to the property for its numerous narrow intrusive-hosted high-grade quartz veins containing visible gold sampling over 30 gpt.1,2A large gold soil anomaly is untested by drilling and is a high priority target for follow-up. The Company is considering a program of induced polarization to provide further definition. Copper-cobalt mineralization was recently identified on the property during on-going prospecting and sampling programs. A rock grab sample from a massive pyritechalcopyrite band with a breccia zone, assayed 0.49% copper and 0.12% cobalt (Doyle, 2016) and was confirmed with sampling returning 0.63% copper and 0.125% cobalt.3381 LithiumThe use of lithium in EV and rechargeable batteries is widely understood. The Route 381 Lithium Property is comprised of 40 mineral claims located in James Bay Territory, north ofMatagamiin the Province ofQuebec, Canadacovering 2,126 hectares. The Route 381 Lithium Property is located directly west of and adjacent to Stria Lithium Inc.’s Pontax-Lithium project. It is located in an exciting and prolific hard-rock lithium jurisdiction with several actively advancing lithium projects including Critical Elements Lithium Corporation’s Rose Project, the Whabouchi Lithium Project and Galaxy Lithium (Canada) Inc.’s James Bay Lithium Project. An initial exploration field reconnaissance program is being planned for the upcoming season.
Tyr Project and Century South Silver-Zinc PropertyThe Company’s silver focused projects in Australia remain a priority as silver plays an important role in EVs and the shift towards renewable energy sources. Silver’s high electrical conductivity make it an important input in the electrical components of electric vehicles and solar cells.
