Nemaska Exploration Inc. (TSX-NMX and OTCQX: NMKEF) recently made available a very cool 3D virtual tour of their 100-per-cent owned Whabouchi Lithium project in the James Bay area of Northern Quebec. The Whabouchi lithium deposit is known to be one of the largest resources of its kind in the world (M&I resources of 25-million tonnes at an average grade of 1.54 per cent lithium).
Nemaska is pressing forward with an aggressive development plan for the Whabouchi property. Permitting began in the summer of 2011. Engineering, ground preparation, the ordering of large equipment units and construction activities will begin in 2012.
Having already secured a $3.7-million private placement deal with the Chengdu Tianqi Industry Group, (Chengdoo Shiangqi) owner of the largest lithium battery chemical producer in China, Nemaska plans to start production of the mine in 2013.
This 3D Virtual Tour is extremely well done and gives the viewer a very good understanding of the economics and upside potential at Whabouchi.
