- Infinity Stone will provide LGC Standards with 150kg bulk sample of pegmatite material from its Galaxy Pegmatite Project, near Mont-Laurier, Quebec
- Bulk sample will be shipped to LGC Standards for testing and processing into a Certified Reference Material (CRM)
- Infinity Stone has sent multiple samples from the Project for assay recently and is currently active on the property with an expanded exploration program
Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (OTCQB: GEMSF) (CSE: GEMS) (FSE: B2I) (the “Company“, “ISV” or “Infinity Stone“), is pleased to announce that it has engaged with LGC Standards to process a 150 kilogram bulk sample from its Galaxy Pegmatite Project (the “Project“) which covers 9,423 hectares near Mont Laurier, Quebec, into Certified Reference Material (“CRM“). CRMs are used as reference samples by labs globally as standards for calibration of assay and testing equipment. LGC Standards intends to produce a homogenous batch of a Lithium Ore CRM from the Infinity Stone 150kg bulk sample.
In early September, the Company’s field team was active in the extraction of a 150 kg bulk sample of pegmatite material from a high-priority target zone, which will be shipped to LGC Standards for analysis and processing into a CRM in the coming weeks.
“We are very pleased to be working with a leading producer of CRMs in the processing of pegmatite material from our Galaxy Project. LGC Standards is internationally recognized and has a wide network of customers and partners that are potential end-users of reference samples produced from the Galaxy bulk sample”, said Zayn Kalyan, CEO of Infinity Stone.
The recent field reconnaissance on the Project has identified extensive outcropping of coarse-crystalline pegmatite dikes.
Infinity Stone has sent multiple samples from the Project for assay recently and is currently active on the Project with an extended program, including further sampling, trenching and blasting of the 30 identified pegmatites on the Project.
Providing reliable analytical results during analysis of unknown samples is based on the development of testing protocols rooted in the use of well characterized calibration/testing materials. In the field of geochemical analysis these materials are often referred to as Geochemical Reference Materials (GRMs). Because the rock composition may affect the analysis (matrix effect) it is important to have a variety of rock types produced as GRMs. In addition to matrix effects producers also face problems associated with accurate analysis and development of sufficient material to distribute to the scientific community for a number of years. The first issue is addressed by sending samples of new GRMs to reliable laboratories for testing. Using a variety of analytical techniques and experienced operators accredited laboratories typically produce results that are statistically consistent. The second issue of producing large quantities of homogeneous GRMs is a bit more difficult but protocols exist that when followed properly yield high quality/consistent materials.
