At drill hole NWRC024, there were earlier two excavations. One of 208 meters deep and other 212 meters deep. Now, the company is going to drill the existing drill hole NWRC024 further. The first one will be 13 meters from the earlier excavation of 208 meters will result in 1.6% Li2O. In the second one, a further drilling of 4 meters will be done which might produce 2.8% Li2O.
