HIPO Resources Limited (ASX: HIP) is based in Perth, WA. On 02 July 2019, HIP made an announcement related to the assay results from sampling conducted by a consultant at PE 13081 in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
The company received positive results from the sampling, which was conducted by South African consulting geologist Minex Consulting SARL on the Kamola Lithium Project, located in the southwest of Manono in Tanganyika Province, DRC.
Previously, the company had reported that the consultant completed a detailed mapping and sampling program to evaluate the feasibility of lithium-bearing pegmatite exploration in the Manono region.
As per the release, traverses were conducted at the three permits where lithium assays were obtained by Kweneng Group, while inspection visits were conducted at the areas of known tintantalite mineralisation on PE 13081. Also, grab samples collected at Kirkoff depicted positive results, and the best result was 1.42% Li2O along with lithium oxide content of up to 0.919% Li2O at Kabimbi.
Further, these assay results originated from the area along a corridor that includes the differentiated and lithium-bearing Kanunka – Bukena – Malemba-Nkulu pegmatites. Additionally, the grab samples obtained from the Kamola pegmatite returned lithium oxide content of up to 0.284% Li2O.
According to the recommendation by Minex Consulting, the clearest core targets for lithium mineralisation occur at PE 13081 and at Kamola, within Exploration Licence PR4076. HIPO Resources would be considering these recommendations along with associated costs and logistics, and it intends to provide an additional update in due course.
