EUREKA CREWS MOBILIZE TO RAGLAN DISTRICT AS LITHIUM HUNT CONTINUES IN QUEBEC
Vancouver, British Columbia, July 25, 2023 – Eureka Lithium Corp. (CSE: ERKA) (OTC: SCMCF) (FSE: S580) (“Eureka Lithium” or “Eureka” or the “Company”), owner of the largest lithium-focused land package in the top third of Quebec known as Nunvaik, has mobilized field crews through its GroundTruth Exploration partner to the Raglan District where Eureka owns 443 sq. km at Raglan West and 229 sq. km at Raglan South (see attached map, Figure 1).

Jeffrey Wilson, Eureka President and CEO, commented: “After a successful Phase 1 program in the New Leaf District in southern Nunavik (refer to July 18, 2023 news release), we’re very excited to have boots on the ground in the Raglan area where the Nunavik staking rush began early this year. There is also important mining infrastructure in this part of Nunavik in addition to a deep-sea port.”
Wilson added, “There are two operating nickel mines in the Raglan District, including Glencore’s prolific Raglan mine, and the potential for more with the work being carried out by KoBold Metals and Wyloo Metals. Outside of this nickel belt, one of the most significant in the world, this under-explored area is showing a lot of potential for hosting lithium-bearing pegmatite deposits. We were first-movers on very favorable lithium ground at Raglan West and Raglan South. GroundTruth has optimized logistics to provide efficient access and maximum exploration coverage of a very large area to further enhance discovery opportunities.”
Raglan West Highlights:
- Raglan West features some of the highest lithium and cesium values in lake sediments in the Quebec government database, including 16 out of 39 samples greater than 99 per cent or 37.3 parts per million and above (see attached map, Figure 2);
- The anomalous to extremely anomalous lake sediments appear to be associated with east-southeast-trending and northeast-trending magnetic lineaments;
- Recent mapping by the Geological Survey of Canada’s Quebec division indicates the land package includes granites, tonalities, paragneiss and amphibolites;
A priority focus will be given to a historically mapped cluster of 12 pegmatites exposed across a 2 km x 3 km area, which also includes the property’s highest lithium, cesium and rubidium values in reported Quebec government lake sediment sampling.

Raglan South Highlights:
The 229 sq. km Raglan South Property, within 10 km of KoBold Metals’ large land package to the north, features one of the strongest lithium-cesium anomalies in lake bottom sediments in the entire Quebec government database, along with favorable rock units, including a large mafic structure, and multiple historically mapped pegmatites.
- Raglan South contains 12.3% of the 99.96 percentile lithium samples in lake bottom sediments in the Quebec government database (seven widely spaced samples out of the top 57 samples in the province’s entire database) that contain greater than 60 parts per million lithium (see attached map, Figure 2);
- Historically, Raglan South has seen very little geological mapping, but multiple pegmatites have been noted along with mafic and other rock units considered favorable for potential lithium mineralization;
- Raglan South sits next to three intersecting terrain boundaries including a large northwest-trending magnetic low structure.
