Gama Receives Drilling Permit on Muskox Lithium Project in Northwest Territories
VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 15, 2023 / Gama Explorations Inc. (CSE:GAMA)(FSE:N79)(OTCQB:GMMAF) ("Gama" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has received its Land Use Permit (the "Permit") for the Muskox Pegmatite Lithium Project (the "Muskox Project" or the "Project") located within the Yellowknife Pegmatite Province in the Northwest Territories. The Muskox Project is now fully permitted and fully funded for its 2023 exploration program.
"We are pleased to have received our Permit for the Muskox Project, a requirement for Gama's inaugural drill program on this newly acquired asset." Stated Dr. Mick Carew, Gama's CEO. "When Gama acquired the Muskox Project, the only known pegmatite on the Project was the CM-1. Since then, the Company has identified another 30 potential pegmatites and raised $6.7M in gross financing proceeds to fund its exploration program. We are now fully funded and permitted to complete our work program for this year and unlock value on this prospective asset."
Phase 1 Exploration Plans for the Muskox Project
The Company will commence its phase 1 exploration program on the Muskox Project with a comprehensive Lidar and Orthophoto geophysical survey over the entire 50 km2 claim block. After the survey, the Company will complete a detailed mapping and channel sampling program that will focus on areas of the project where Gama has identified over 30 additional pegmatite structures through the interpretation of recently acquired Spot 6 satellite imagery as well as additional targets that may be generated from the Lidar and Orthophoto data. In particular, significant attention during this channel sampling program will be dedicated to the south-east corner of the Muskox project that lies directly south of Patriot Battery Metals' (TSXV: PMET) Hidden Lake Project where a high concentration of these newly identified pegmatites have been located within a small area [see Figure 1 below].
Following the initial field work, Gama will commence the now fully permitted drill program to focus on the CM-1 pegmatite, which hosts spodumene lithium mineralization that was encountered via channel sampling program in late 2022 which yielded average grades of 1.34% Li2O over 5 m and 1.26% Li2O over 11 m. Further, recent XRD sample analysis by ActLabs confirmed spodumene is the dominant lithium-bearing mineral and Spodumene comprises 8.0% to 13.8% of the samples by weight.

The Muskox Pegmatite Lithium Project is located approximately 40 km east of the city of Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories (Figure 1). The project covers a 50 km2 area within the centre of the Yellowknife Pegmatite Province (YPP), which comprises occurrences of spodumene rich pegmatites over an area of more than 5,000 km2. The Muskox Pegmatite Lithium project hosts the CM-1 pegmatite, a coarse-grained, spodumene-bearing pegmatite that crops-out 100 meters north of the paved, all-season Highway 4. The pegmatite has been traced over a strike length of ~730 m and is up to 11 m wide. The Property is easily accessible by paved road.
