Vancouver, British Columbia–(ACN Newswire via – May 22, 2024) – Q2 Metals Corp. (TSXV: QTWO) (OTCQB: QUEXF) (FSE: 458) (“Q2” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Q2 geology team and drilling contractors have mobilized to begin its inaugural exploration program at the Cisco Lithium Property (the “Property” or the “Cisco Property“).

The Company will commence a detailed mapping and sampling program at the Cisco Property which will provide guidance on the extent of the lithium mineralization at the initial target area and identify other potential target areas on the sizeable primary exploration trend measuring 21 kilometres (“km”) long.

“Our geology team has arrived at our camp and work at the Cisco Property will ramp up this week,” said Q2 Metals President and CEO Alicia Milne. “Our team is motivated by the property vendors’ 2023 discovery and the massive scale of the project will keep us busy this summer.”

Q2 will also commence an inaugural drill campaign (“Spring 2024 Drill Campaign”) which will be focused on the 2023 discovery area. As the other target areas are assessed by the Q2 geology team, the Spring 2024 Drill Campaign may expand outwards.

Youdin-Rouillier Drilling of the Eeyou Istchee Territory, James Bay, Quebec is contracted to complete the diamond drilling with Dahrouge Geological Consulting Ltd. of Edmonton, Alberta managing the drill program and property-wide geological exploration.
