Vancouver, British Columbia – August 31, 2023: Lancaster Resources Inc. (CSE:LCR)
(OTC Pink:LANRF) (FRA:6UF) (“Lancaster”), is pleased to announce that on August 29, 2023,
Lancaser entered into a definitive agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the Trans
Taiga Lithium Project (the “Property”) in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region of Quebec. The
Property, hosting several historical pegmatite samples, lies ~120 km west of Patriot Battery
Metals’ (TSXV:PMET) Corvette Project, ~74 km west of Winsome Resources’ (ASX:WR1)
Cancet Project, and a few kilometers east of Loyal Lithium’s (ASX:LLI) Brisk Lithium Project.
The Trans-Taiga Lithium Project. The Property covers 1,432 hectares and is located along
the boundary between La Grande and Opinaca Subprovinces. Subprovince boundaries are
often delineated by deep-rooted crustal features filled by late-stage intrusives including
The Property is 120 km west of Patriot Battery Metals’ (TSXV:PMET) Corvette Project, and
roughly 74 km west of Winsome Resources’ (ASX:WRI) Cancet Project. The Corvette Project is
notable for its hard rock lithium project presenting lithium grades up to 5.10% lithium oxide
(Li 2 O). Winsome’s Cancet reported grades up to 5.6% Li 2 O.
Additionally, Loyal Lithium’s (ASX:LLI) Brisk Project, with its six separate claim blocks, reports
that Block 1, located just a few kilometers west of the Property, holds the greatest lithium
The Lithium District in Eeyou Istchee James Bay Quebec, is rapidly becoming one of the
world’s leading lithium districts, boasting 10 advanced projects and multiple early-stage
discoveries. The Whabouchi mine is the 7th largest lithium deposit worldwide, with a Mineral
Resource measuring 36.6 Mt at 1.3% Li 2 O, according to www.mining-technology.com.
Geology. Pegmatites are confirmed to be present on the Property, as recorded in the provincial
government’s geological databases, SIGEOM. The documented mineral content includes
garnets, muscovite, and tourmaline, all located within a white pegmatite in the Property’s
northwestern region along the Trans-Taiga Road. Further along this road, the pegmatite exhibits
a graphic texture, characterized by quartz-feldspar, and it also contains sizable feldspar
megacrysts (up to 6cm).
Strategic Acquisition Diversifies Position. With the acquisition of the Property, Lancaster
diversifies its exploration projects. Lancaster’s focus expands from its existing lithium brine
exploration at the Alkali Flat Project in New Mexico to include hard rock lithium exploration in
Quebec’s James Bay region. This strategic move enhances Lancaster’s exploration capabilities
and geographical diversity, positioning it to unlock different types of lithium resources in varied
Planned Work Program. Lancaster plans to embark on an exploration campaign on the
Property with a goal to identify lithium-rich areas through geophysical programs, detailed
geological mapping, and evaluation of the lithium concentration through sampling and
Property Access. Year-round access by road via Trans-Taiga Road which transects the
Property. The Property is located approximately 105 km east of the junction with the year-round
James Bay Road. Hydroelectric transmission lines transect the Property, lowering exploration
Option Agreement. Lancaster has acquired the exclusive option to acquire full ownership of
the Trans Taiga Lithium Project. The total initial payment commitment stands at $115,000,
broken down as follows:
● Within the first 10 business days, Lancaster will make an initial payment of $37,000. This
includes $10,000 in cash and 135,000 of Lancaster common shares at a deemed value
of $0.20 per share for payment of $27,000, which have been issued.
● On each of the first, second, and third anniversaries of the agreement, Lancaster will
make additional payments of $26,000. These can be made entirely in cash or split
evenly between cash and company shares.
Beyond the initial payments, Lancaster is committed to milestone payments based on
● An initial milestone payment of $50,000 is required if the exploration uncovers at least 10
contiguous meters of lithium-bearing spodumene with an average grade of 1.0% Li2O or
● Additional milestone payments of $1,000,000 will be made for each filed mineral
resource estimate showing a deposit exceeding five million metric tonnes with an
average grade of 1.0% Li2O or greater.
A 2% net smelter returns (NSR) royalty is due to the original property owners, which can be
reduced to 1% if Lancaster opts to make a collective payment of $1,000,000.

About Lancaster Resources Inc.
Lancaster Resources is engaged in exploring energy transition metals to take advantage of the
global shift towards decarbonization and electrification. Its Alkali Flat Lithium Project, in
Lordsburg, New Mexico, USA, involves the exploration of a below-surface lithium brine target.
Lancaster’s goal is to produce Climate-Positive Lithium there using direct lithium extraction
technology and solar power. Lancaster recently acquired the rights to a 100% interest in the
Trans-Taiga Lithium Property located within the James Bay lithium district of Quebec, and lying
on the same fault as significant lithium discoveries, including Patriot Metals’ Corvette Property.
Guiding Lancaster Resources’ journey is a skilled management and technical team, with
collective involvement in over 15 commercial mineral discoveries, and endowed with extensive
experience in the creation of lithium brine targets and the exploration and development of
Lithium projects across Canada, the American West, Mexico, and South America.
