The Moblan Project

Moblan project

The project

In a joint venture with SOQUEM, Sayona acquired a 60% majority of the Moblan project, which is located in a world-class lithium-rich mining province in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay region, in September 2021. Sayona is proud of this new investor-backed project, which gives it another boost to ensure that Quebec can meet the growing demand for lithium in North America.

In keeping with its commitment to sustainable development, Sayona, in close collaboration with SOQUEM, remains in consistent contact with community members, such as First Nations and other stakeholders. Sayona works hard to ensure everyone benefits from the project, in particular by creating jobs and making investments that will breathe life into Quebec’s clean energy sector, from mining to electric vehicle production.

Key points

Lithium was first found on the Moblan property in the 1970s and drilling first took place in 2007.

Several meetings have been held with local communities.

The site’s deposit has a world-class grade of lithium oxide (1.4% Li2O) and a low waste to ore ratio of 2.9:1.


Measured and Indicated Resource:

49.9 Mt

@ 1.20% Li2O


The Moblan project is approximately 130 km northwest of Chibougamau and 600 km north of Montreal. The site can be reached by taking Route 167, followed by the Nord Road (accessible year-round), then gravel roads.

Ongoing drilling campaign

Sayona conducted the 2023 drilling campaign in collaboration with SOQUEM to more precisely determine the amount of lithium on the property. The target of approximately 60,000 metres was reached in September and analysis is of the resources well underway.
