VANCOUVER, British Columbia, – Medaro Mining Corp. (CSE: MEDA) (OTC: MEDAF) (FWB: 1ZY) (“Medaro” or the “Company”), a multi-faceted venture aimed at developing innovative spodumene processing technology concurrent with its lithium focused exploration in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has entered into a contract with Forage Hebert Inc. (Herbert) for their B-20 Diamond Drill to drill the Lac La Motte property located near Val D’Or, Quebec, Canada (the “Property”). The Property is composed of eleven (11) mineral claims, covering approximately 519 hectares.

Medaro has contracted Hebert to drill a series of NQ size diamond drill holes on lithium targets at Lac La Motte to test lithium showings on the property. The contract is for a minimum of 1,000 meters to a maximum of 3,000 meters. As Herbert itself is based in the town of Amos, Quebec, the mobilization cost’s will be kept at minimum. The mobilization will commence in the week of June 13.

The Lac La Motte Property is located in the prolific mining area of Abitibi, Quebec, 40 kilometers Northwest of the city of Val-d’Or. There are several active lithium prospects/mines located approximately 5 km to 20 km from the Property. These projects / prospects are at various stages of exploration and development of which Mine Quebec Lithium is the most advanced project followed by Authier lithium project. Historical Diamond Drilling in the 1950s’ on the Property has yielded results of over 1% lithium oxide in drill holes. The Company commenced a ground prospecting and sampling program immediately upon acquiring the Lac La Motte Property in May 2022. The field prospecting program has identified and confirmed various lithium pegmatite outcrops on the Property. The samples collected during the current prospecting work has been shipped to Activation Laboratories in Ancaster Ontario and results will be reported as soon as available.

Michael Mulberry, CEO of Medaro, stated, “Medaro Mining is excited to drill the Lac La Motte property. Medaro has committed to an extensive exploration program this summer at Lac La Motte and look forward to publicizing the results of our field program as soon as available, followed closely by assays of our recently commenced drill program. The current drill program will help not only to confirm the historical drilling work but also can be helpful in enhancing the footprint of the known lithium pegmatites on the Property.”
