Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - May 31, 2023) - Q2 Metals Corp. (TSXV: QTWO) (OTCQB: QUEXF) (FSE: 458) ("Q2" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has initiated Phase 2 of the 2023 exploration campaign, including surface mapping/prospecting, rock sampling, airborne magnetic and LiDAR surveys at its flagship Mia Lithium Property (the "Mia Property"), located in James Bay, Quebec. Q2 geologists have mobilized to the camp and will immediately begin work on the approximately 8-km long lithium exploration trend.
"Our geology team has arrived at the Mia Lithium Property, and we are expecting a busy and productive summer," said Q2 Vice President of Exploration, Neil McCallum. "We are ramping up our work on the ground to expand upon the known high-grade spodumene pegmatite on the property, discover new occurrences and identify drill targets along the trend. We look forward to sharing the results of the program as we proceed."
The primary objective of the surface mapping/prospecting and rock sampling program is to explore and identify drill targets along the approximately 8-km long lithium trend, located within a greenstone belt where numerous occurrences of high-grade spodumene pegmatites were sampled at a reconnaissance-scale in 2021 and 2022.
The high resolution airborne magnetic surveying will provide property-wide coverage that is intended to guide the exploration team to define potential pegmatite bodies at depth by outlining regional geological corridors and magnetic susceptibility variations that may directly be caused by pegmatite intrusions. The Company will also complete a property-wide LiDAR survey that provides high-quality topographic control and will add to the pegmatite targeting toolkit, providing precise local surface control for detailed geological modelling at the drilling stage.
The summer work program will be based out of a local Wemindji owned and operated camp. Additionally, the Company has secured all the required drilling and helicopter contracts for its inaugural drill program this summer at the Mia Property.

Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in forward-looking statements include failure to obtain necessary approvals, unsuccessful exploration results, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, results of future resource estimates, future metal prices, availability of capital and financing on acceptable terms, general economic, market or business conditions, risks associated with regulatory changes, defects in title, availability of personnel, materials and equipment on a timely basis, accidents or equipment breakdowns, uninsured risks, delays in receiving government approvals, unanticipated environmental impacts on operations and costs to remedy same. Readers are cautioned that mineral exploration and development of mines is an inherently risky business and accordingly, the actual events may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.
