Discovery Alaska (ASX:DAF) has signed three Heads of Agreements giving it exclusive rights to acquire three lithium projects in Quebec, with the option to conduct due diligence at each site.

The projects cover 182? with a total of 354 tenement claims, and are located in the highly prospective James Bay lithium district.

Discovery Alaska says exploration activities will be carried out during the due diligence period, with a focus on developing a comprehensive lithium exploration program.

It also says the projects have had historical fieldworks conducted by Quebec Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources.
