Brunswick Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: BRW) (OTCQB: BRWXF) is pleased to announce that it has received all results from its drilling campaign at the Anatacau West project, located in the Eeyou Istchee-James Bay region of Quebec. The final results are from the six remaining holes. In total, 17 out of 18 holes intercepted pegmatites and, importantly, the pegmatites remain open a depth and with potential for new pegmatites further south and to the east.
Drill result highlights from this release:
Mr. Killian Charles, President and CEO of BRW, commented: “We are very excited to return to Anatacau West and Anatacau Main once restrictions have been lifted. The recently announced Anais spodumene showing underscores the regional potential for the two projects. We believe systematic exploration across our claims will continue to lead to new discoveries. Both targets will be prioritized for drilling in late Q3.”
Anatacau West Drilling Campaign Overview
Following drilling completed to date, BRW believes it has intercepted at least two continuous, distinct spodumene-bearing pegmatites. All of the pegmatites are oriented north-northeast, are closely spaced in an on-echelon pattern and dip steeply towards the west. The pegmatites are hosted in metasedimentary rocks in an east-west deformation corridor similar to Allkem’s neighboring James Bay Lithium Deposit.
Drilling has initially focused on near surface mineralization with the pegmatites only being drill tested to a maximum vertical depth of 137 meters. They remain open at depth. Furthermore, potential exists for repetition of new pegmatites further to the south and to the east.
Lithium mineralization consists predominantly of spodumene with minor lepidolite. Spodumene crystals are generally well-formed, decimetric in scale (up to 10cm) and have a white to pale grey color. Importantly, grade is strongly correlated with visually identified spodumene percentage in core allowing BRW to rapidly ascertain the lithium potential of mineralized intercepts in exploration drilling.

Termination of Advisory Services Agreement
The Company announces that the advisory services agreement entered into with Red Cloud Financial Services Inc. and originally announced on March 31, 2023 has been rescinded by the parties. The upfront fee of $120,000 paid by the Company in consideration for the services to be provided by Red Cloud has been refunded to the Company.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control
BRW adheres to a strict QA/QC program for core handling, sampling, sample transportation and analyses. Drill core samples from the Company’s projects are securely transported to a core facility on site, where they are logged and sampled over 0.5 to 1.0 meter intervals. Samples selected for assay include insertion of quartz blanks and certified reference materials into sample batches at a rate of approximately 10 per cent. Samples are shipped to ALS Canada Ltd.’s preparation facility in Val-d’Or. Pulps are analyzed at the ALS Canada Ltd. facility in Vancouver. All samples are analyzed by sodium peroxide fusion with ICP-AES/MS finish. Reported drill intersections use a lower analytical cut off value of 0.1% Li2O.
The scientific and technical information contained in this press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. François Goulet, Manager Quebec. He is a Professional Geologist registered in Quebec and is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
