Encouraging drill assays for Bitterwasser Lithium Clays Project

The drill results indicate a possible upgrade of the Mineral Resource classification at Eden Pan, which may lead to a Pre-Economic Assessment.

Increased lithium grades at Bitterwasser brines project

The company completed drilling six of the nine planned holes at its project.

Six samples were collected from shallow drill holes in the Upper-Sand Unit.  At a depth of 68 metres, these samples yielded up to 84 parts per million, representing approximately the midpoint of the Bitterwasser Brine Pool.

The Bitterwasser basin has a geophysical anomaly of 42km x 9km. The initial results are highly encouraging and indicate the potential for a significant lithium discovery, highlights the company.

The company has finalised an extensive sampling program at 5m intervals and pump tests.
